How to Fit your Underwear Properly

Good fitting underwear is as important as a good fitting bra. An uncomfortable pair of panties can ruin your whole day.

If your underwear is too snug then you should try a larger size. If bunching is your problem then you should try a smaller size or a style that will work with your body type.

How to fit your underwear properly:

1. Measure your waist - Use a measuring tape. Wrap the measuring tape snuggly around the natural break in your waist without cinching. This is your waist measurement. Write the number down.

2. Measure your hips - Wrap the measuring tape around the fullest part of your hips. You can use a mirror to make sure that the tape is all the way around the hips. Make sure it's snug and parallel to the floor. Write down the number.

The chart below can help you determine your correct size.
