11/7/12 Update: Thank you to the volunteers who came forward to be fit models! I have all the fit models I need and look forward to launching the ftm packing underwear later this year. Stay tuned!
Looking for a free pair of packing underwear? You are in the right place!
I am looking for a few fit models (no photos required) to help me make sure my new packing undies are up to snuff. Do you use a soft or stp packer on a regular basis? Do you want a free pair of underwear? Are you very close to any of the measurements sets listed below? Are you willing to share feedback with me about how they fit? (That’s a lot of questions!) Yes, yes, yes and yes? Hooray! I’d love to send you a pair!
And, just in case this is your first visit, Hi. I’m Kori. I make your new favorite undies out of your old favorite tshirt and thrifted tshirts too. They’re nostalgic, they’re eco-friendly, and they’ll make your underwear drawer smile! My packing undies are pretty badass- two fit models have already raved about them and now that I’m getting closer to offering them alongside the boy-cut-for-girls styles in my Etsy shop, I need your help. For more about what I do, check out this post :)
I’m looking for 3 fit models for a stp packer style brief and 3 fit models for a soft packer style brief. I have a list of questions specific to their fit I’d ask you to answer after you take the undies for a spin: things like how you like the cut, how the elastic strap that holds the packer in place works, etc.
I’ll take your feedback and incorporate any changes that need to be made before starting production on these models. You will help make Upitees even more accessible!
Think you were made for this job? Have any questions? Let me know! Send an email to koriel.jock [at] gmail [dot] com, or comment below and I’ll look forward to following up!
The underwear (lovingly called Upitees) will be sent on a first-come, first-served basis in the next week or so. I’ll hope to have your initial feedback within a week of your receiving them. Thank you so much!
I’m still figuring out what to call my sizes. For now, please bear with me and use the chart below. Measurements are best, and your hip measurement around your fullest part is the most important one. See below for more on taking your measurements.
Size 23/0 – Waist 23″/58.5 cm, hips 33.5″/85 cm
Size 24/2 – Waist 24″/61 cm, hips 34.5″/87.5 cm
Size 25/4 – Waist 25″/63.5 cm, hips 35.5″/90 cm
Size 26/6 – Waist 26″/66 cm, hips 36.5″/92.5 cm
Size 28/8 – Waist 28″/71 cm, hips 38.5″/98 cm
Size 29/10 – Waist 29.5″/75 cm, hips 40″/101.5 cm
Size 31/12 – Waist 31″/79 cm, hips 41.5″/105.5 cm
Size 32/14 – Waist 32.5″/82.5 cm, hips 43″/109 cm
Size 34/16 – Waist 34.5″/87.5 cm, hips 45″/114.5 cm
If any of these match up with your measurements, let me know! I’d love your help spreading the word too :)
To get your measurements, measure your waist at your smallest part, and your hips at your largest (which is probably more like your bum, :) and is usually about 8″/20 cm below your waist). If you don’t have a measuring tape you can hold a shoelace, piece of ribbon or string, or a laptop cord, around yourself and measure it with a flat ruler to get the actual measurement. Make sense? Just make sure not to stretch said shoelace, ribbon, string or cord. See the photo below of Louloubelle to get an idea (I don’t have a Louis dress form yet… Thanks for your understanding :)). I can’t bind her, and she doesn’t have any booty (she just can’t help it!) but if she did, it would be near where the lower arrows are :)
