I'm 3x in clothing from the store, so I would be a 3x, correct? WRONG! I could put these on, ontop of my pants! There was still about 2" on either side of my hip. And because I'm only 4'10", the waist band came up to my rib cage. I also bought a few other thongs, which fit the same way. Guess I'm out the money, since they can't be returned. I would have been cheaper just to go to WalFart and buy some Hanes thongs there! PS - these had more fabric in them then my Just-For-Me briefs!?!
