To look good in your lingerie, you have to know how to measure yourself!
The feeling of comfort of your lingerie depends on the quality of its design, the materials used, but also on the right choice of size. For optimal comfort, it should be neither too big nor too small. So how do you find the right size for your panties or thong? Here are some tips for lingerie stockings that are perfectly adjusted to your morphology.
Measuring your pelvis circumference, also called hip circumference, provides more reliable measurements for choosing your lingerie stockings than measuring your waist circumference. By taking the measurements of your hip circumference, you will measure the horizontal circumference at the level of the upper part of the thighs and the bounce of the buttocks. That is to say the "strongest" part of your body below your waist. While the waist measurement corresponds to the circumference of the most hollow place of the waist.
To do this, take a tape measure. Stand up straight, feet aligned. Position the measuring tape flat, at the most prominent point of your pelvis, generally at the height of the buttocks, as "horizontally" as possible. No need to tighten the ribbon, it should not be too tight or too loose. For a more accurate measurement, have someone help you and avoid wearing pants, position the meter directly on the skin or on your underwear.
If you don't have a tape measure, you can use a string. To do this, position the end of the string on a measuring point, for example under your navel. Go around your pelvis with the string until you reach the end of it and locate the point of contact on the string by pinching it. Take a standard measuring tape and bring the string to the contact point marked to obtain the length in cm of your hip circumference.
Despite our advice, are you hesitating between two sizes? Our lingerie stockings fit normally, but if you have any doubts, take the lingerie stocking one size larger than the one you usually take. You will then not take the risk of feeling uncomfortable in underwear that is too small and uncomfortable because it is too tight.
