Follow these steps to the perfect fit and say
farewell to frumpy fannies.
1. Measure around the fullest part of your hip, making sure the tape measure
remains level all the way around.
2. Measure your waist, placing the tape measure around the natural
indentation of your body. Bend to the side if you need help finding
that natural indentation.
Waistbands bunching up and rolling over?
You're probably wearing the wrong style or size. The waist should stay in place comfortably and be snug, but not binding. You should also be able to pull the panty easily over your hips. Try a smaller size or a different style.
Panty legs cutting or binding?
The leg openings shouldn't cut or bind at the thigh. Find out if you're wearing the right size with our size calculator. Then check how you're wearing your panty: Are the leg openings arched evenly from side to side? Is the fabric skewed or bunched? If you're wearing the panty properly and it's still uncomfortable, try a Hi-Cut style instead.
Panties riding up?
Get the right size! A proper fit means the panty is balanced and symmetrical, cupping your bottom evenly. If you're tugging, something isn't right.
Visible panty lines?
Many of our panty styles are made to prevent panty lines. Check the product details on the styles you’re interested in. Or, go for full coverage to make sure your bottom is cupped by the panty. Our brief and boyshort styles like 2617, 2543, 2703, 2803 and 2855 are great for smooth, line-free looks as well. Or, if you want to try the ultimate in a no panty-line look, go for one of our thong styles like 2013 or 2817.
See the printed label inside each Barely There garment for particular care instructions. But, in general, if you're putting your garment in the washer, don't just throw it in with your jeans. Put your intimates in with other delicates and wash using the delicate cycle. If you're really in love with something, you can always hand-wash it in cold water. And air-drying is always best. But if you're in a hurry (and who wouldn't be to put on a great Barely There® panty?), use the dryer on low heat.
