If the waistband on your panties fits skin tight around your body, it can leave you with marks on your hips at the end of the day, and in some cases, a muffin top (and not the good kind!). With these kinds of problems, chances are, you’re buying underwear with an overly-snug fit. To combat this, go for a size up from your usual, or switch to a high-waisted style with more coverage.
To put things into perspective, with a thicker side band, a pair of hipster cut knickers will give you more waist coverage than a pair of Brazillian cut knickers, while still offering an alluring fit.
On the other end of the spectrum, a loose waistband will oftentimes mean it’s time to say ‘out with the old, and in with the new’; be sure to update your underwear drawer roughly twice a year to ensure that your knickers are giving you the best in terms of elasticity and strength.
Leg Holes too big/small
Of all the elements that make up a pair of panties, the leg holes are possibly the most important. With underwear leg seams that fit too snugly and dig into the thighs, maneuverability becomes more and more uncomfortable as the day goes on. If you’re not comfortable with going commando, this can take your whole day from “I’ve got this” to “I’ve got to go home” real quick. Luckily, this is an easy fix: just size up! Also, going for styles with less coverage, such as a thong or a cheeky cut pair of panties often means being able to move more freely, with minimal leg restriction.
When it comes to buying knickers that fit amazing, a certain saying by none other than Hannah Montana comes into play – “Nobody’s Perfect”, but the good news is, almost every issue with your knickers can be identified and solved after a few attempts. Let’s just say, it takes a while to become a pro, but it’ll all be worth it in the end!
