Best Thong: Hanky Panky

Some time ago I came across a post by Heather of Miles Etc. regarding thongs. She recently returned to to the world of paid labor and business attire and was describing her twin frustrations with panty lines on the one hand and uncomfortable thongs on the other. I can relate to her dislike of panty lines, but have to disagree with her regarding the merits of the thong.

It's hard enough being women, walking around in our normal, imperfect, beautiful, curvy bodies, worrying about everything it is that we worry about each day. The last thing we should have to worry about are annoying panty lines. Panty lines, on all occasions under all types of clothes (business attire, jeans, and yoga pants, for example), are unflattering and totally unnecessary. No matter how perfectly shaped, skinny, toned, and smooth you are, add a panty line and you're booty will suddenly look bumpy, bulgy and indented. It's a travesty, and it doesn't have to be that way. You can totally eliminate the lines and maximize the assets without sacrificing any comfort.
I started wearing thongs about 8 years ago because I thought they were kind of sexy, but now wear them exclusively, not only or even mainly for the panty-line buster effect, but because I find them way more comfortable than any other type of panty.

My thong panty of choice is Hanky Panky's low rise thong. They are awesome. I swear. They have a thick band of stretchy, soft, sexy lace that completely eliminates all lines and sits just below your hips very comfortably, and they're low enough to fit under most low-rise pants. They don't ride up or cause uncomfortable wedgies anywhere, and they're made of a very flexible, breathable fabric that feels nice against the body. When I wear them, it feels like I'm not wearing anything, which in my book is pretty much perfect. In contrast, other panties, that can scrunch and ride up in unseemly places, feel bulky and awkward. The other great thing about Hanky Pankies is that they come in a ton of beautiful, fun, practical colors. I have about 20 different pairs.

In New York you can get them at the Pink Slip in Grand Central or in a lot of the boutiques around the city. According to their website, you can also find them at Bloomingdale's, Neimen Marcus, and other department stores such as Lord & Taylor. For anyone looking for the perfect thong, or a new sexy panty, check 'em out and let me know what you think.

Can you email me some photos of you modeling them and I would be happy to let you know what I think?

Too funny! I just got back from Bloomingdales where I bought a pair. As far as thongs go, I'm not a huge fan, but Hanky Pankies are as good as they get.

Gregory A. Becerra,

I find your comment completely inappropriate.

Sisterfriend - Awesome!

Enough Already - Ditto.

Silly yes, inappropriate no. If the subject were shoes, nobody would think twice. Given the subject my comment was extremely appropriate. You can't go outside in your underwear and then be shocked when someone notices.

Thanks for this... i've been thinking about buying Hanky Panky thongs for my girlfriend. She's had the same panty line problem, but doesn't wasn't try to a thong. I figure i'll buy her some and see how she likes them.
