Knicker Importance… we’ve got it covered!
Its A Question Of Style…
With us having a variety of clothes shapes and styles in our wardrobes we also need a variety of knickers in our lingerie drawer. A lady should own a good selection of all styles, so no matter what the outfit or occasion you will have the perfect knickers to compliment your body shape.
As a general rule order your knickers in the size jeans or trousers you wear. If ordering as a gift and unsure of the size, this quick question to the recipient “what size jeans do you wear?” will make sure you are ordering the correct size for them without spoiling the surprise. Of course, we will always exchange a size if it's not quite right the first time.
The Do’s, Don’ts & Why’s of Buying Knickers…
Shopping for knickers can prove a tad bewildering. Knickers should neither be too big nor too small. A woman should carefully consider what knickers are appropriate for wearing under what types of clothes. You should own a good selection of all styles so no matter what the outfit or occasion you will have the perfect knickers to compliment your body shape. There are definite ‘do’s’ and definite ‘don’ts’ when it comes to buying knickers. Knowing what these are will ensure a proper fit and lasting comfort.
Do Have a Selection of Styles
We all have a variety of clothes shapes and styles in our wardrobes so do have a variety of knickers in your lingerie drawer to complement them.
Do You Know Your Size?
Do wear the correct size knickers. This ensures that the clothes worn over them will feel comfortable and lay correctly. As a general rule order your knickers in the size jeans or trousers you wear. If ordering as a gift this quick question to the recipient “what size jeans do you wear?” will make sure you are ordering the correct size for them without spoiling the surprise.
Do Shop for Your Body Type
Do always choose a style of knickers that suits your body type. Knickers are categorised according to the width of the sides of the knickers, and the rear coverage. A woman with a more ample belly should consider wearing briefs, rather than boyshorts, as briefs will cover the body better, lessening the possibility of unwanted bulges forming under clothing.
Do Wash New Knickers
New knickers that have just been taken out of the packaging should always be washed before being worn for the first time. The reasoning behind this rule is that some manufacturers chemically treat fabric to enhance colour, shine or texture, and these chemicals could irritate sensitive skins, causing rashes. Washing new knickers will remove the chemicals and prevent any unwanted irritation.
Don’t Wear Knickers That Are Too Tight
If one’s knickers dig in they are clearly too small. A pair of knickers that do not fit properly do not lay against the body smoothly and evenly will be a constant irritation. The waistband should lay against the body nicely with no grooves that will advertise a visual panty line, and worse, a ‘muffin top’.
Don’t Wear Knickers That Are Too Big
If the knickers are too loose at the bum or thighs they are definitely too large and a smaller size needs to be purchased. Most waistbands will fit the waist, but sometimes other parts of the knicker may be ill-fitting, especially knickers that are extremely low priced, or cheaply made, as they are mass-produced for a large market of just one or two body types.
Don’t Wear Spandex Knickers
Although it may be tempting to wear spandex knickers because they conform to the body snugly, they are actually not a good idea. Spandex does not breathe as cotton does. Wearing knickers that fit too tightly, like a second skin, is not healthy. This can cause myriad health problems, including infections. Spandex does not absorb moisture or wick moisture away from the body. Another problem with spandex knickers is that many women choose to wear a size smaller than their actual size to better hold in their belly, but after wearing and washing them only a few times, spandex knickers can start to lose their shape. When looking for more support for an ample belly, a better choice is to wear briefs with light to medium stomach support that still provide a breathable cotton crotch.
Don’t Show Visible Panty Lines
To avoid showing panty lines, opt for a boyshort that covers the bum more completely and extends far enough below the bum so as to prevent constriction from the elastic band on the legs. Another option is to wear a thong. However, the style of thong should be loose, because if the edges of the thong dig in, those pesky lines will still be there, just higher up the bum. One very important point is that a low-rise style of knickers should be worn with low-rise trousers. No one wants to see someone else’s knickers peeking out.
Knickers are an important part of a woman’s wardrobe. When determining the style of knicker to buy, choose a classic brief, that provides maximum coverage, or a lacy thong that leaves a lot more skin uncovered, and will make one feel naughty and nice while wearing them. Both of these are available at Knickers By Post and all styles in between.
