How To Pick Out The Perfect Panties For You That Will Fit Properly

Aug 18, 2007
For women picking out panties is a little more complicated than it is for guys picking out underwear. For us guys it is a matter of just picking up a pre-packaged 6 pack or so that have a range of a couple of inches and we are good to go. For women it is more of an exact science as you pretty much need to know your exact size to be sure that they aren't too tight or too loose. It is no fun being at work and having your panties ride up and rub you in a bad way all day long.

The first thing you need to do is grab a tape measure and measure your waist by wrapping the tape around your waist tightly but not so much that it causes you to pinch skin which can give you an improper measurement that would make you choose too small a size. The area you want to measure is that natural break that occurs where your hip and waist meet. Be sure to record the measurement somewhere you will not lose it. The exact panties you end up buying will depend upon whether you go with the type that fit at the waist or the newer hip hugging style so popular today.

After measuring your waist you now want to measure your hips at their widest point. It is crucial that you keep the tape level and straight to get an accurate measurement so you may want some help with this or if not at least use a mirror. As with measuring your waist you also want the tape measure to be snug but not so tight that it binds. Write this measurement down just like you did the waist measurement. Just to give you an idea of sizes, a waist measurement of around 27" coupled with a 38" hip measurement will probably be a size 6 or medium. Actually, the number sizes of 5-7 are usually medium.

Next comes the fit of the panties on your body with the most important area being the crotch area. If they don't fir properly in this area you will never put them on again so be sure that they are comfortable here above all. The proper fit is that they should be snug and not be all gathered up in the back or front. The band around the waist should be snug but not too tight and the band around the legs should leave no marks. If you follow these simple guidelines you should have no problem finding the proper fitting panties for your body.
