Size & fit guide

We work hard to develop the most comfortable underwear with amazing fit for various body shapes and sizes. Still, when shopping online it can sometimes be tricky to choose the right size or fit. We’re here to guide you! Follow the steps below to help you to choose the right size and fit.

Step 1: Take your measurements

First things first: measure yourself and compare to our size chart below. 

Make sure the measuring tape is horizontal and follows your body closely, yet not too tightly. Waist measurement should be taken at the narrowest point of your waist, and hip measurements at the fullest part of your hip or bottom. 

Size Waist (CM) Hips (CM)
XS 64-71 89-96
S 68-75 93-100
M 72-79 97-104
L 78-85 103-110
XL 84-93 109-118
2XL 92-101 117-126
3XL 100-109 125-134
4XL 108-117 133-142

This step might be enough for you to find your right size and fit, although we recommend you read on.

Step 2: Consider your preferred fit

Some people prefer a tighter fit, while others prefer a looser fit. This really comes down to preference, so consider sizing down or up depending on what you feel most comfortable in.

Please note that for leakproof underwear to be efficiently absorbent and leakproof, you do not need to choose a tight fit. For some, it feels nice to not wear too tight underwear while menstruating, not least due to bloating, and you can easily go for a looser fit without worrying, if that’s your preference. 

We actually found during our product research and development that most period underwear from other brands feels way too tight. We deliberately wanted to challenge that with Hala leakproof underwear, and it turned out amazingly well!

Step 3: Seek more guidance

Also, please do not hesitate to reach out to us directly in case you have any additional questions, so we can help you choose the right fit and size before you place your order.

Step 4: Give your fit feedback

We truly believe that the very best way to develop the best fit is to do it collectively. We would love to hear how the fit feels for you, so we can continue to develop our products and fit to match various preferences, and so we can develop more precise size guidance and recommendations.
