Let's be honest, if your underpants don't fit right, you're going to
be miserable all day. The dreaded panty ride-up can be one of the most
distracting situations to suffer through. It will affect your comfort level all
day. Therefore, it almost goes without saying that underpants need to fit
your contours without creeping, and feel natural if you don't want to spend
all day tugging and squirming.
Well, you never have to experience this again if the next time you
go shopping for underpants, you purchase the size that's right for you.
Finding Your Personal Underpants Size
Determining your proper panty fit requires that you know two
components: waist measurement and hip measurement. If possible,
recruit someone to take your measurements. It's faster and tends to be
- Waist Measurement
- Measure your waist by placing the tape measure around the
natural indentation or break in your waist. If you need help locating this
indentation, bend to the side; the crease will be the location of your waist.
- Hip Measurement
- Measure the fullest part of your hips, making sure the tape
measure remains parallel to the floor. This is your hip measurement.
Now that you know your two measurements, consult the chart
below to determine your proper underpants size. If your measurements
represent two different panty sizes, choose the larger of the two sizes.
