Here are the sizes to help you decide. Unfortunately both the large and X-large fit me. I decided to go with large because my past knee braces have expanded over time. Otherwise it's a good product.

SIZE KNEE (Circumference)
SMALL 12"-14"
MEDIUM 14"-15"
LARGE 15"-17"
X-LARGE 17"-20"

My daughter recommended a different McDavid knee brace to me, but I knew that I needed the XX-large sizing of this model. It is not at all expensive, but it is so comfortable that I can wear it all day without pain. My knee is getting better because of this brace. The neoprene is soft and easy to clean, and I can wear it under most of my pants or let it show when I wear shorts. Sometimes I wear it with the red side out just for a change, and it seems to work just as well while it adds a cheerful accent to my casual outfits.

I spent almost as much money on ill-fitting braces at the drugstore, but this is the one! I heartily recommend it.

UPDATE - Three years later - AUGUST 28, 2013: Just purchased my second pair. In the past three years my knee issues have progressed from minor to major and I still find that these knee supports offer relief and freedom from pain meds. Some day I might need a total knee replacement but for now, the McDavid knee supports are giving me major help in delaying that dreaded surgery as long as possible.

My old McDavids mysteriously disappeared and so I had to by another pair. (There is no proof, but I suspect that my dog had something to do with it.) The new knee supports came in black and grey instead of the black and red of the old ones - the color doesn't affect the functionality, but I prefer the low key black and grey because it doesn't draw attention to my knees. After a few years, my old ones had stretched out some so I was glad to get new ones that give me better support. It was a relief to find that the McDavids were still available.

For my original review, please read on.

ORIGINAL REVIEW 2010: I purchased two of these because they come in size 2X, and it is difficult for me to find knee supports that fit my plus-sized body without making me feel like I am wearing a tourniquet. The fit guidelines on the McDavid website are accurate and the knee supports are true to size. They give me adequate support, retain heat, supply compression, and do not make me feel too strangled when I wear them.

Another thing I like about them is that they are simple. There are not a lot of complicated velcro straps, hinges or other paraphenalia that get in my way - I just slip them on and they do their job. They are perfect for minor injuries that do not need massive support. The support is very light and would not be good for severe knee issues.

I have had good luck with this product in the past, but the latest one tore apart at one of the seams. It was used for maybe 50 hours of exercise. Because Amazon does not allow returns after 30 days, I am out of luck, and out $12.

I painstakingly read reviews with a bid to ensure that I ordered just the right size. Measured my knee circumference and along with the reviews I read finally settled on ordering LARGE. When I received it however it was not the best fit. On top of that after working out or walking around for a while in it, it begins to slip down as I sweat, thereby rendering it ineffective in carrying out its function. I'm in Jamaica so returning it is not even an option for consideration. maybe the MEDIUM would have been the ideal choice for my 16" circumference...

I have weak knees. They can hurt. I play ice hockey. I'm 51. These hold my knees together very well. I can feel a huge difference if I forget to wear them. As long as i do, I don't have the usual problems with my knees on stairs, etc. Will be using them for tennis in the spring as well.
They DO make you sweat but just dry them carefully after use.

As we age, our bodies are subject to ware and tare. Yes, the soft fat pad tissue at our knee too. This knee support will hold the two crescent-shaped discs positioned between the tibia and femur i.e. not to spin side way while you are running; hence, reduce the tension in grinding the tissues at the knee discs. I bought one for my right knee at a sporting goods store; when I want one for my left knee, I simply ordered from Amazon. I took two stars off because the one received from mail order is slightly shorter (1/2") while the double lining at the knee around the hole is missing i.e. when comparing to the photo and the one from the store. I guess what I got earlier is from old inventory i.e. before the manufacturer trimmed down the quality of the product because of cost, you know, it is a very common practice when the owner of the brand trying to keep the retail price and margin the same while material or labor costs from Taiwan/China are increasing. Well, you never win, you keep the money but hurt the goodwill or the future of the brand.

Had to return 3 different styles of this company's knee braces. Does not fit according to measuring guide. I ordered twice according to guide, and returned and re-ordered according to what I thought would fit compared to the first one. They are either too tight and when you move up one size they are or far too large. I am a larger person but according to McDavid's size guides, I fit the sizes.
