Panty isn’t usually the most exciting type of clothing to shop for, and you find yourself in trouble if you pick the wrong pair! No one wants to feel their undies pinching, sagging, rolling, or rising up all day because that means you’re stuck tugging at them.
Finding comfortable Panty isn’t difficult once you know how to get the right fit and choose a good fabric. By knowing your body type helps because certain styles can be more comfortable than others depending on how you’re shaped.
How to Measure your panty size on your own
It’s important for you to know an accurate measurement! Measurement is a simple process which consists of measuring your hips to find the perfect fit. Here are the few simple steps to help you determine your perfect brief and panty size –
Step 1: Determine Hip Size
Find the fullest part of your hips, which may fluctuate from 6″ to 9″ below your natural depending on your height. Wrap measuring tape around your hip, snug, but not tight – this is your hip measurement.
Step 2: Measure your waist
Bend at sides, the area where your body indents are your natural waist. Wrap measuring tape around your waist, snug, but not tight. Measure around 5cm below the natural waist where the waistband of trousers normally sits on the body- this is your waist measurement.
Now record the numbers and Refer to the Panty Measurement Chart and use your measurements to find your perfect match. If you fall between sizes consider the next largest size.

Panty Fit Guide
Underwear should cover the buttocks in on the even, symmetrical way. (Doesn’t apply to thong). If they ride up, try a larger panty size.
Should not be tight enough for the band to cause grooves on the skin. The leg openings should be evenly arched from front to back. They shouldn’t hug too tightly or cause indentations.
The waistband shouldn’t bunch, roll, or dig into your skin. It should stay in place without causing discomfort. Should be snug, not tight, and fir smoothly and evenly around the body.
Should fit against the body comfortably with no excessive fabric in front or back. Horizontal crotch seams should be visible from the front.
Signs that tell you that you’re wearing the wrong panty size
Women are always worrying more about the clothes that go on top of the underwear, right? Below mentioned are the underwear mistakes that you should pay heed to the next time you get dressed.
- The fabric bulges at the crotch
- It does not support your back
- The waistband or leg openings cause you rashes
- You can spot a lot of creases
- It digs into your skin
- It creates a wedgie (the line which appears when underwear gets stuck between the butt cheeks)
To make your underwear last, be sure to consult the care instructions when you wash them. Some may be delicate and require special washing techniques.
Check for moisture wicking.
If you sweat a lot or are in active work all day, consider moisture-wicking fabric for your underwear. This type of underwear should wick away moisture and dry quickly.
Always wash underwear after purchase before wearing. You don’t know who has been trying them on “au naturel” contrary to fitting room regulations, and it’s a good idea to wash them to remove any residue left over after the manufacturing processes.
