Have any of you ladies bought this Hanky Panky Thong?
I heard about it on the radio a few times in the last couple of days and they’re saying it is the most comfortable thong ever. I must question it as a consumer before I make my purchase. So, whats the deal with these supposed ab fab undies???
I haven’t tried them, and at that price, I’m not likely to. But judging from the picture, the comfy factor is based on the fact that A) They’re made of stretch lace, which has more give than most fabrics, and usually pretty soft. B) The satin covered elastic, for less pinching. and C) They’re low-rise, which reduces the wedgie effect caused by thongs that come higher up on the hip.
The waistband is wide, instead of a little useless string. With a skinny little waistband, I feel like a chunk of pork roast tied up with white butcher’s string. Get rid of the panty line, get a chubb line! What’s the point?
But these look like they won’t have that problem. I’m going to look around for similar ones at better prices, though.
La Senza has a very similar product, as do many department stores … they may be worth trying, as I truly see no difference between those items and the Hanky Panky ones (except for the cute name and the high price!).
It’s cute and I’m sure it’s comfy, but I am a devoted fan to another.
Ladies, I suggest Cosabella (I don’t work for them yadda yadda…). A bit pricey, but not AWFUL. They have a much wider rang of sizes and they are the most comfy thing you can have wedged between your ass . Oh, and for the larger ladies (who am I kidding? I’m included in that group, too), Lane Bryant has undies of a VERY similar make that are very nice.
Go to a hanes/ bali outlet. They have ones that are almost exactly the same. Last time I visited my mom in Asheville (she works there, yay discount!), I picked up about a dozen pairs, they are the most comfortable thing I’ve ever had. The style number is 2198.
It isn’t a style I like, but I’m pretty sure I saw similar ones at La Vie en Rose too. I like shopping there - they always have 5/15$ CDN or similar sales, so I can pick a whole bunch of different styles to see what are the most comfortable. Generally, I’m pretty happy with all the thongs I’ve bought there. Also, it’s a chance to get cute but ordinary brief-type panties for certain times-of-the-month when a thong just won’t do! Variety - if you can’t express yourself in your underwear, where can you do it (wait…that doesn’t sound quite right… )
