Ladies! It is your lucky day!
I am looking for a few fit models to help me make sure that some of my Upitees sizes are up to snuff.
Do you want a free pair of underwear? Are you very close to any of the measurements sets listed below? Would you be willing to share feedback with me about how they fit?
Yes, yes, and yes?
Hooray! I'd love to send you a pair! I'm working on 4 sizes right now- at opposite ends of the spectrum:
If any of these match up with your measurements (or if they're close, your hip measurement is the most important one), let me know!
See below for more on taking your measurements. Think you have a friend who might be the perfect fit, please let her know! I'm looking for 3 gals for each size. I have a list of questions specific to their fit I'm looking for feedback on after you take the Upitees for a spin, things like how the elastic feels, etc.
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. 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 :) Check out the arrows to get an idea of where your waist and hips should be measured. I'll take your feedback and incorporate any changes that need to be made before starting production on these sizes. You will help make

Upitees will be sent on a first-come, first-served basis. I'll hope to have your initial feedback within a week of your receiving them. Thank you so much!
Great! Can’t wait to see them :)
Rachel, that’s awesome! Thank you- I expect to ship on Monday and I’ll follow up with an email later today or sometime tomorrow. Hooray! Thanks again :)
My hip measurement is a zero, I’d love to try them out and give feedback! (My waist is a little bigger than 23’, I’m not super curvy.) Let me know if you could use my help. My e-mail is email@example.com.
Hooray! Thanks, Uma- you are the first! I’ll follow up by email :) And I’d love your help spreading the word… :)
Yes yes yes!

My measurments are closest to your zero size if you’re still looking for girls around there! But since I’m such a weirdo I’m sure your size two would also fit. :] Thanks a million for letting me know about this.

[…] I have a new etsy buddy, Kori, who is making cute recycled t-shirt boy-cut underwear for girl-shaped people for her etsy shop, La Vie en Orange. There are even gift certificates if you don’t know someone’s size! I love love love what she has done with her shop as of late, it is absolutely an inspiration to get off my butt and make something of my etsy store. I have not tried her products out yet, but I am going to be a fit model for one of her sizes! I’ll let you all know how it goes. She is still looking for fit models for her new larger and smaller sizes, see if you may qualify for a free pair! […]
