New undies?



Recommended Posts

Ok ladies. I am super excited to be to a size 12 for the first time in 15+ years.... But I've always bought my panties/undies (whatever you prefer to call them) at Lane Bryant .... We all know those go by pant size. So my question is how the heck do I figure out what size I need now without buying ones that don't fit?!

Hi,

I have come to find out when it comes down to figuring out size always try things on. You may find you are a medium in one brand and size small in another. Congrats on getting away from lane Bryant.

I believe if buy Hanes or fruit of the Loom they have hip measurments on the package as a size guide.

This may sound gross, but buy them in a size 6 or 7 & if they don't fit return them. They will just damage them out, so they won't be resold or anything....I remember being a size 7 when I was in a 14pant, if that helps.. But I've always kinda had a bubble butt.

@@Sparkylee Measure your self if your buying online or even if your not go to their website and it should tell you the measurements for the size!

Some places will let you try them on over leggings in the dressing room. My friend came from overseas and the sizing here is different and we went to Victoria's Secret and Aerie and both stores let her try them on.

      I saw the post where you were denied the first time because you lost to much weight.  How much did you lose?  I lost 1 # my 2nd month and 6# my third month and scared to death I have screwed up.  
       
      Thanks

        I lost 11% of my body weight and they wanted me to fail to lose 10%. I even called the insurance company and asked them to clarify because the wording was confusing. I didn't know if they wanted me to lose the 10% or fail to lose the 10%. I was told to lose 10% so I did and apparently the person that I spoke to wasn't correct. But also this was in December and my company was scheduled to change to a different division of BCBS after the first of the year. So that probably played more into the denial than anything.

        I continued my monthly visits and they clearly showed that I plateaued about month 5/6 and began to regain. I originally lost from 333 to 298 and regained back up to 330 but have now lost back down to 318.

      One week post-revision, down 5 lbs since surgery day.....which puts me back under 300. VICTORY!!! Still a ways to go but I'll take every little win I can get. Feeling great other than minor abdominal discomfort.

      Breathe baby breathe
      Where does it go?
      Some of the water produced as the body consumes fat exits in the usual way, through your urine and sweat. But a 2014 study in the British Medical Journal found that most of the byproducts of fat (including all that carbon dioxide) leaves the body through the respiratory system.
      Yep, you read that right. You breathe out the byproducts of most of the fat that you burn, the CO2 from that process mingling with the CO2 produced by your lungs as they process oxygen. It's something to think about while you hit the gym or walk on a track: getting rid of fat can be exhausting, but it's as natural as breathing.
