Wax ring size

Had to pull the stool in my wife's bathroom, as it was leaking around the base. The wax ring is shot. What's the best way to determine what size ring I need to replace it?

Measure the floor pipe diameter. Either 3" or 4". Actually, most rings fit either size. Some have a guide "funnel" and some don't. I like the guide but either should do the job.
Just be careful when re seating the bowl and make sure it doesn't rock when tightened. If it does have any movement, it will need shimming.
