Hilarious!! You are a sweetheart of a husband for trying to get your wife panties when you knew she needed new ones. I don't think my husband would
ever brave that. Love the picture!
If you know your wife's pant size, and bought panties in that same size, that would be the problem. Is that what happened?
Pants size does NOT translate to panties size. I'm a size 8 (sometimes 10) in pants and I usually wear a size 6 in panties. There is no reason
you, or any other husband, would know this. It's completely illogical. It's stupid.
Rough equivalents in packaged store-bought panty sizes... totally just making this up, but they should be roughly close... (these are American sizes,
too... which don't translate to other countries... of course.)
Size 5 is Small - Size 4 or 6 in jeans
Size 6 is Medium - Size 8 or 10 in jeans
Size 7 is Large - Size 12 or 14 in jeans
Size 8 is XL - Size 16 or 18 in jeans
Size 9 is XXL - Size 20 in jeans
Size 10 is XXXL - Size 22 in jeans
Don't even get me started on bras and cup sizes. Arg! Whhhhhy?
Oh, and then there is the confusing business of when you cross a certain size threshold you go into "plus size" territory, which can have it's own
sizing. 1X, which you might think is equal to XL, is really much much larger than that for instance. And then the vanity-type sizes, I guess you
would call it, where something is plus size but they still say S, M, L.... but really, the small is equal to an XXL.
This is the kind of information that should be included in a pamphlet given to all young women when they reach puberty. We need some sort of central
source for this stupid stuff that is not at all intuitive.
Basically, the only way you could have been prepared for the insane task, other than knowing her panty size, is to know her hips measurement. Most
packages will have the hips measurements on the back to help you buy the right size.
Thanks so much for sharing... I needed the laugh! And, apparently, I needed to join in the rant!
