Parameters for Perfect fitting panty

Some important parameters for a perfect fit panty are as follows:

Waist Measurement

Measure the waist by placing the tape measure around the natural indentation or break in the waist. If one needs help locating this indentation, bend to the side; the crease will be the location of one’s waist.

Hip Measurement

Measure the fullest part of hips, making sure the tape measure remains parallel to the floor. This is the hip measurement. After knowing the two measurements, consult the chart below to determine the proper underpants size. If the measurements represent two different panty sizes, choose the larger of the two sizes.

Perfect Panty Fit Checklist

It is very important to know how panties are supposed to fit? Take a quick look at the checklist to make sure the best fit possible.

NameDescription
Natural fitting crotchA panty crotch should fit naturally against the body. There should be no excessive fabric in the front or back, and should definitely not be binding. If the panty has a front horizontal crotch seam, it should be visible from the front and not slip backward. If it does, check to see that the panty isn’t on backward.
The waistband is snug but not bindingIf the waistband keeps bunching up and rolling over in the front, then it is the wrong size one should pick a smaller size. The right size means your band stays in place and is comfortable.
Legs are snug but not bindingPanty legs should not be so tight that they cause grooves along the thighs. Leg openings should be evenly arched on both legs and the fabric should not be bunched or twisted. If you’ll one has trouble with binding legs, then try a panty with a high cut leg style such as French cut.
Buttocks is cuppedGenerally unless one is wearing a thong, the proper fit around the buttocks is balanced, symmetrical, covered and cupped. If not, it means one needs a bigger size. Also, if some of the current panties are riding up, the elastic is probably shot and they need to be replaced.
