 5 Ways To Buy The Right Period Pants First Time 

1. Use A Size Guide

When shopping online for clothing using a size guide is a great way to get the right fit. The same goes for period pants. When buying WUKA period pants you can use this specially crafted size guide to work out what size is best for you by basing it on your usual clothing size or by measuring yourself. When measuring yourself, it is ideal to use a measuring tape. Remember to remove clothing, wrap it around the widest part of your hips, keep the tape level, and relax your body. 

Don’t have a measuring tape? No worries! You can use a belt or piece of string and a ruler. Simply measure yourself in the same way you would when using tape but afterwards lay the string or belt flat and measure the length with a ruler. It is always a good idea to measure yourself a couple of times, or get a friend to help you. If you land in the middle of a size, go for the bigger option to ensure a good fit. 

2. Get Multi-Size Period Pants
