Marketing - Textiles / Clothing / Fashion / catalog for orthopedic braces
French term or phrase: confection spéciale
I am translating a catalog from a French orthopedic brace manufacturer into EN-UK. This phrase is taken from a page that lists product numbers for various sizes and colors of braces.

Mesure adaptée.
Confection spéciale. p.2

(Note that page 2 describes how to measure your leg girth, length, etc to choose the proper size of brace)

I would appreciate suggestions for equivalent English wording from any translators who are familiar with clothing/textiles.

Notes to answerer
Asker: I found more information on the manufacturer's website and decided to go with "special order" in this case, as the product wasn't really being custom made.
