Not True to Size Login/Join

First world problems.

I ordered a well-reviewed shoulder brace off of Amazon. Most of the reviews said the item was true to size, and it's measured off of your chest. The brace is actually designed for motocross so it has a detachable hard plastic shell, so I figured it could be useful when I go to drill each month.

Anyway, I have a 33" chest. The sizing chart lists 30"-36" as being a small. So, naturally I ordered the small. It arrived today, and the strap is about 4-5" too short to go around my chest.

Thankfully it's an item sold BY Amazon, so I should have the replacement tomorrow. I went ahead with the medium, but now I have a feeling I may need a large. BUT, with the way my luck works, if I went straight to the large, it would have been huge.

Bah, humbug.

My one concern (may be totally unfounded, I won't know until tomorrow) is about the protective plate. Even if I get the right brace size, my fear is that the plates increase in size as well...so I may have to mix and match a medium brace plate with a large harness or something. We'll have to see.


I've just had a run of bad luck with Amazon lately (none of it their fault, though). Of my last three orders, all of them have been sized incorrectly or arrived broken.

Why do you think you need a shoulder brace for drill?

I was at JC Penneys and there was a sale on underwear. I normally wear Hanes boxer-briefs but decided to try a different brand, in the same size.
No. No they are not the same size. You know those angry people you encounter every now and then and you wonder wtf is wrong w/ them? I'm convinced they wear this brand of underwear.

Did I throw them away? No. They are my underwear reserves.
-That moment when I discover all my first and second string underwear is in the laundry and I'm down to these. Woe is me.

I have impingement syndrome as a result of a LOD injury I sustained several years ago.
