The photos below show the standard XL size panties that are available for dogs in heat. As you can tell these were tiny, tiny. I referred to them as Speedos. So I did what any good mom would do; I made a pair for her.
To speed up slideshow click on each photo.
These are the 1st pair of panties I made for Flower. As you can see these fit her much better than Speedos version and now it was time to make more as just one pair would not cut it. Started with a template off of the Speedo version and just made larger. A lot larger. See pink corduroy panty template below, last photo.
Flower starter her second heat in January, 2015, at 15 1/2 months (1 yr. 3 1/2 mo).

I needed to make more panties for Flower so I always had a clean pair. In addition to being short on panties, Flowers crate was literally too short for her. I needed to get an XL crate and have it here immediately. In order to get the proper size you need to measure your dog in length. See photo to right. For width have them lie on floor or bed, get measuring tape to measure from tip of nose to bottom base of tail + 2 inches. Then for height they need to stand erect for this and measure the highest point of the dog to the floor. Width isn’t even an issue at this point as the size of the create needed will be plenty wide for your bullmastiff. So you’ll also need a bed, the bed I purchased I had cut to size of create, getting a custom bed was perfect and the same amount as a regular bed. Get a local seamstress on hand, trust me, they are life savers! Plus I got to pick out my fabric(s) and have an additional cover made. Plus with having a waterproof bed liner (you can use twin size bed and just fold/tape down across sides and top/bottom) the foam bed itself will never get ruined.
These photos show Flowers NEW panties, NEW bed and NEW crate.
