Panty size guide

Manufacturers of underwear use different sizes to identify women's and men's pants. We distinguish two solutions at this point - numerical sizes (8, 10, 12 ...) and letters (S, M, L ...). Most importantly and worth emphasizing - the size M of the producer X may differ from the size M of the producer Y. Worth noting is also the information that British producers of briefs use British clothing sizes. Yes, so the below size of panties is universal and approximate, and in specific sizes, we recommend looking for individual lingerie manufacturers.

Remember: measurements are not everything!

Remember that the size chosen on the basis of measurements and calculations is just a starting point to determine the correct size in a given bra model. It happens that women with identical dimensions wear different sizes. Our busts differ in shape, consistency, seat height, spacing, our skin and body have different sensitivity. All this can not be captured in two numbers, which are the circuits under the bust and in the bust.

How to find the perfect size of panties?

To find the perfect size of panties, measure yourself in the narrowest part of the waist with a loose gauge measure so that it does not cut into the skin. Save the measurement as the waist circumference. In the same way measure your hips at the widest point, and save as hip circumference. Now look at the size chart of the panties:

How Should Underwear Fit?

When it comes to women panties size, the issue of selecting the proper item that will neatly highlight our body shape while at the same time being optimally comfortable is not as straightforward as it may seem to some. Panty size selection should be therefore preceded by certain preparations that will ensure both successful and satisfactory purchase.

The first and most basic step is to focus on measuring our waist. In order to do that, one should wrap a soft measuring tape around one’s waist and then proceed to noting the taken measurements down on a piece of paper or in a notepad file on the phone or computer. Afterwards, it is highly recommended to measure one’s hips, which will give the person interested in purchasing some neatly matching items of clothing a lot of information that can be presented to the representative of either a brick-and-mortar or online shop. A customer equipped with the aforementioned data can then proceed to determining her size. Women panties size selected will then most likely be simply perfect and wearing a particular item will not be a torment, but rather - a pleasant experience.

We would also like to indicate that while purchasing panties, it is worth taking into account not only their size, but also the quality of material they are made of. If it is above-average in nature, we can be sure that a particular item of clothing will serve us well for quite a long time, even if we decide to wear it on regular basis and wash it several times a week to ensure that is stays clean and fresh.

The most commonly used material composition

To make women's panties both comfortable, useful and, in addition, sexy, it is necessary to use high-quality materials. We give an example of the composition of the material in women's panties:

  • Lace:
    • 88% polyamide
    • 12% elastane
  • Shaving:
    • 92% polyamide
    • 8% spandex
  • Flexible part:
    • 78% polyamide
    • 22% elastane
  • Lining in the crotch:
    • 100% Cotton

Maybe not everyone agrees, but among women's underwear, women's panties deserve special attention. I guess only older or worse-looking ladies, often out of jealousy, can say that the panties can not be beautiful. Let's try to write a little about the panties in this text, maybe one of the women will find out something interesting.
