A few years ago, I mounted a crusade against visible panty line. Working women don’t always think about the smoothness of their rearview, and many types of full-seat underwear cause this unsightly fashion faux pas. I was once afflicted with this terrible disease, but I never thought that I would be the kind of women who wore thong underwear (I was young and stupid enough to think that there was a “kind” then.) until I found Hanky Panky thongs.
Hanky Pankys are super comfortable. I know…thong and comfortable are not two words that you would think go together, but in this case, they do. I rarely even know that I’m wearing them, which was not my experience with other types of thongs (not only was I sure I was wearing them, I desperately wanted to remove them for most of the day).
Like most Hanky Panky wearers, I started out with the traditional one-size-fits most, low-rise, lace thong. This classic also comes in petite and plus-size. They also make a mid-rise and a higher rise. And I thought they were eliminating VPL 100-percent of the time, until I wore a crepe dress.
Under the thin crepe, the outline of the flowers was visible. Ironic that in my quest to prevent VPL, I had actually caused VPL. *facepalm*
Luckily, our friends at Hanky Panky are now making a thong in smooth, microfiber jersey. The thongs come in a “natural rise” that I was initially skeptical about, but it turned out to be a little higher the low-rise, but not too high. And like its lace counterpart, Hanky Panky Bare thong is very comfortable.
As for sizing, this thong does not come in one-size-fits-most, so you’ll have to pick your size. I am a size 6 hip and was a small. So it seemed to run fairly close to the size guide suggestion. They’re not yet making these thongs in petite or plus-size, but hopefully, they will soon.
I love this product. It’s the perfect thing for thinner materials. No more rumply flower pattern on my tush, thank goodness.
