How do I measure my panty size?

To predict the size of panties you will have to approach the matter, in the same manner, you handle all other clothing sizes…with a measuring tape.

1. Start with your waist, and hold the tape parallel to your hip. 

2. Wrap the tape on the fullest coverage of your waist, usually on the belly button, it should not be too tight nor loose such that it falls on its own.

3. Note the numbers on the tape at the point the tape overlaps and subtract the smaller number from the bigger number.

Example: if you are measuring in inches and the tape overlaps on a point in which one part of the tape has the number 50 and the other part has the number 20 written on them. Then your measurement in inches will be 50 – 20 = 30 inches.

Once you are done with your waist, move the tape a bit downward and wrap it on your hip bone. Repeat the processes above so as to know your hip measurements. Once you have your hip measurements, put the two beside each other and pick a size that BOTH measurements fall into.

If however, the two measurements do NOT fit into one size range. That is to say, the two measurements are not together in the measurements of one panty size. In this case, you are one leg in and one leg out of two different panty sizes.

Many experts suggest that you have both sizes and wear the one that feels more comfortable. Get the two sizes at the beginning and then buy more of the comfortable size. You should buy the two sizes because if you lose a bit of weight, you will easily fall into the lower size, and if you gain a bit of weight, you will easily fall into the higher size.

It will be more difficult for you if you purchase just one of the sizes only to gain or lose weight in a fortnight and now have uncomfortable panties.
