How do I know if a bath chair will work with my existing bath or shower?

Before making a purchase, we suggest measuring the length, width and depth of your bath tub or shower and compare this measurement to the chair you like. This will let you know if the chair will fit in your bathroom and prevent a future return or exchange.
