    Has anyone else noticed that underwear sizes have become smaller recently? I firmly believe the new "large" was the old "medium."
    And whatever cotton they are now using shrinks like a magician's disappearing act.

    I even see some designers make an "extra small (XS)." Who could fit into them?

    All fits are not the same.

    My waist is a 33", my hips are 42", my thighs are 23" each. Of course, I also have a lot going on between my thighs.

    Mediums on my undies (the Jockey Pouch) are supposed to fit if you have between a 32-34" waist. They don't. The pouch holds everything fine but the ass and thigh always tear at the seams. I called Jockey and they sent me free larger size of every pair I sent them that was ripped. I buy the Large (36-38" waist) as I need more room.

    There is no such thing as a standard size. I have found that the cheaper made underwear don't fit well. It's strange but some of the underwear I've bought that was made in Asia has a smaller crotch. Weird, eh?
    Lex that is because baby's got back. :rolleyes:
