PART 2: STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE TO MEASURE PANTY SIZE
It might seem obvious that comfortable women’s underwear is an essential building block of your wardrobe. But it can be all too tempting to sacrifice fit for fashion, choosing panties that look great but ride up, peek over waistbands, or chafe delicate skin. This pantie size measure method helps you determine the right size (and style) for you.
STEP 1:Measure waist size
① Find the natural waist, this is the smallest part of the waist. Usually about 1 inch above the belly button, keep tape slightly loose to allow for breathing room.
STEP 2: Measure hips size
② Find the widest part of hips. Usually about 7 inches below natural waist, tape should brush across both hipbones.
STEP 3: Determine your size
With these two numbers in hand, refer to the panty size chart above to find your corresponding underwear size.
PART 3: HOW SHOULD AN UNDERWEAR FIT?
Along with the underwear size chart, it’s important to know how your underwear is supposed to fit and feel on your body. Too tight and you’ll get unflattering bulges and lumps (not to mention poor ventilation!). Too loose and it will bunch up and/or start to ride up as you move. Let’s nip all that right in the bud. Here’s a quick guide for how your underwear should properly fit:
Crotch: The crotch area shouldn’t have any extra fabric in the back or front. This area should lie flat and secure against the body. Fabric shouldn’t bunch or sag in the front or back, and it should feel snug but not constrictive. If there’s a seam, it should be visible from the front.
Waistband: Properly-fitting waistbands should sit flat, snug, and smooth against your hips. Where it sits will depend on the underwear style.
Legs: Check to make sure the leg openings are evenly arched and that they don’t hug too tightly or cause indentations.
Butt: Though the guidelines change based on style, underwear should generally cover the buttocks in an even, symmetrical way. Unless you’re wearing a style with little to no coverage, like a thong or g-string. It should feel comfortable and stay in place, no riding up or sagging. If they ride up, try a larger panty size.
PART 4: WOMEN'S UNDERWEAR STYLES
Not sure which style is for you? See our breakdown below.
Classic Briefs: Briefs are the most common panties, which are characterized by being worn under the belly button and having a large piece of fabric covering the buttocks.
Bikinis: Medium back coverage with slimmer sides.
Cheekies: Similar to a bikini style but with less back coverage.
Thongs: Minimal back coverage with a thinner waistband.
Hipsters: More coverage than a bikini style with wider sides.
Boyshorts: Maximum coverage all around.
PART 5: FAQs ABOUT UNDERWEAR
1. What Size Should I Buy If I Am Between Sizes?
We recommend following the Measuring Guidelines above. Typically, you want to buy the size indicated by your hip measurement.
2. What Is The Pocket in Panties for?
The pocket in your panties: the crotch. But what is the pocket in panties for?
The reason for the pocket is simple: A small piece of fabric—called a gusset—sits in the crotch of your panties to provide reinforcement, breathability, and moisture-wicking. When the gusset is sewn into a pair of panties, only one side gets stitched in, leaving a small pocket right in the space where your sensitive area sits.
The pocket itself doesn’t have any important function, but the gusset definitely does. That small piece of fabric provides upgrades to both underwear hygiene and comfort by keeping moisture away and providing softness where it’s needed most. Whether you're sleeping in panties or spending the day out and about.
3. How Often Should You Buy New Underwear?
Most experts recommend buying new underwear as often as every 6 to 12 months, however, there’s really no definitive answer as there are many factors to consider when determining your current underwear’s lifespan.
It’s not always easy to tell when your underwear is ready to retire. Unlike food with a clearly printed expiration date, that favorite pair of undies you own with the stretched-out waistband and the small holes have a way of feeling “still good” for one more month—and then another, and another.
There are some surefire ways to know when to retire your panties once and for all.
Holes: When you’re seeing holes in your underwear, it’s time to say goodbye. Holes can happen from heavy wear, improper washing, or from low-quality fabric.
Tears: If your current underwear has tears from your pants, the wash, or flimsy fabric, it’s definitely time for an underwear upgrade.
Stains: When your underwear is stained, it’s a no-brainer that you need new ones.
Stretched-Out: When your underwear is too loose, it’s definitely time for an underwear upgrade. Your old stretched-out underwear is like sleeping on a metal spring mattress. New, fitted underwear is like sleeping on a luxury memory foam mattress.
