One of the most nerve-wracking parts about shopping for clothes online is making sure you buy the correct size. That can be made even more difficult because there’s no one standard across all clothing manufacturers! We’ve all been there- your new clothes show up, you try them on and the fit is not right. When it comes to underwear, having the right size is key! Today we are bringing you everything you need to know about getting the right underwear size so your next pair will be a perfect fit.
Get your measurements
Standard sizing varies for each company, so if you are a small in one brand you may actually be a medium or extra small in another. The best way to get the most accurate size for any garment is to check your measurements with a size chart. Knowing your measurements means you can get the correct size no matter where you shop. At Male Power, we have size charts posted on every item page to make finding the right size easy! Our chart (an most other underwear charts) use waist measurements to determine the fit. If you don’t know your waist size, here’s an easy tutorial on how to get it:
Starting at the top of your hip bone, bring the measuring tape all the way around your body, level with your belly button. Make sure that it’s not too tight and that you are standing up straight. Also make sure that the measuring tape is straight all the way around. If you don’t have a measuring tape, you can also get the measurement by wrapping a string around your waist, marking where it ends and measuring it with a standard ruler.
Once you have your waist measurement, you can compare it to the size chart to find what size would fit best.
Check the garment
Aside from looking at your waist measurement, it can also be helpful to inspect the garment you’re looking to buy to get an idea for how it will fit. Check what the fabric is made of to see if it’s stretchy. If you’re worried about a good fit for your package, look into pieces with a built-in pouch to provide more room and support. Different styles of underwear can vary in fit, so if you know that you like your jocks to be snug but shorts to be a bit roomier, you may consider picking different sizes.
Look at reviews
One of the best ways to find out how a pair fits is to check the reviews! Reviews that are left from other customers often give you great insight that you won’t get anywhere else. If you are someone who purchased something from a site, you should also consider leaving a review! Honest reviews about fit are some of the most valuable ways you can support a company you like and also help other customers find the right product for them.
Contact the company
If you’re still not sure what size to get, you can always contact the company to ask for help! Most companies are more than willing to help you find your perfect fit. At Male Power, we are always available by email and social media to help you out. We take pride in our underwear and want you to enjoy them as much as we do!
Hopefully these tips will get you on your way to having the best fitting underwear that you’ve ever worn. Remember that bodies can change from season to season and year to year so it’s always worth double checking your underwear size if it’s been a while!
