/ Womens underwear size question.
So I've started going out with this girl and I want to buy her some undies as a surprise present. Sneaked a look at the bra size so that's sorted but her knickers only had "M" on them. Does this mean medium? If so is that equivalent to about a euro size 36? She's got a sporty build and her bum is just about perfect - not too big, not too small :-).
I'm based in Spain so will have to buy them here.
Steal some and take them to the shops.
That works on so many levels and will ensure a perfect relationship.
Size 12 UK
Euro 36 is size eight, or thereabouts.
M = 10-12
36 is more like an 8
M in some places is more like 12-14.
It's a minefield for a pant-buying man...
I just know I buy medium pants and my hagloffs trousers are size 38.
It's a minefield assuming any sort of consistency of sizing these days, not just for men
> Steal some and take them to the shops.
Make sure they're clean !!!!
Hmmm, confusing messages people. So should I err on the side of caution and get smaller to flatter her?
Unfortunately can't steal any because she is in Ireland.
How tall is she? That might give us a clue...
Ok, she's about 5'8". So pant size is related to height?!

Sorry, the "M" means "Mens". That will hopefully have avoided an awkward scene.
Sounds odd but it might be - a slim tall person might still be a size 12, whilst a slim smaller person might be more likely to be a size 8, and as we've agreed, 'medium' is a pretty arbitrary size. I say go for size 12.
Another vote for this. Afraid I don't know what that is in euro.
That's Euro 40.
I've found an old pair of Mrs. Num Nums make a great tent - the smell acts as a midge repellent and fabric preservative.
A size 12 is the most common size so unless she is rather petit then she should be a 12 or close to it.In saying that different brands can be a size or two different but i'd say you won't go wrong with a 12 or euro 40.
Err on the smaller side, if you go too big it implies you think she has a huge bum!
... Having said that, if you go too small it implies her bum is bigger than you think it ought to be. Damn it, it's a minefield, get her chocolates, you can never go wrong with chocolates.
... Just not too many, or she'll end up with a huge bum!
Am I the only one who thinks that buying her underwear might not be a good idea? Even if you know what size she is, which you don't really, that's no guarantee what you get will fit her or be something she would want to wear (although I also understand that underwear gifted like this isn't always intended to be worn). Too much of a minefield, especially if you've only recently started going out.
re her bum is perfect or are you a chubby chaser maybe
I'm 5'8" and a size 10. I tend to buy pants a size bigger so they dont ride up my backside. Thongs as well. I dont like feeling too cramped down there.
> re her bum is perfect or are you a chubby chaser maybe
If you are lucky she may have got you some Y fronts as a surprise as well
Thank you for comments. A size 12 or euro 40 it is!
<nods> Definitely. From the description she has a perfect size 12 bum :-)
I met the guy who was credited with inventing the thong. He was a bit up his own arse though.

I bet he had a good Craic though...
I would go with about size 12 if it says m. But then it does all depend on what sort of knickers they are aswell lol.
At best they will think you are a pervert.
(I've been married 23 years and did used to buy her underwear which she would NEVER choose to wear)
