Thongs - Now I know

  1. I was shopping yesterday with my daughter. She talked me into "trying" a pair of thong underwear. Okay...I'll try. As soon as I put them on at home, my brain reminded me that I've been through this before. I'm dating myself now, but for those born before 1960, do you remember sanitary belts? Do you remember how the sanitary napkins were attached to the elastic and how it felt when sitting down? I guess the youngsters that introduced thong underwear didn't experience the old days with sanitary belts. I wonder if they wear the elastic sanitary belts too? Guess which underwear will be on the very BOTTOM of my pile in my drawer!

    Yanno, when I first saw thong underwear, the sanitary belt was the first thing I thought of too........how uncomfortable they were, and how they created bulges, even on skinny girls, that literally advertised you were "on the rag". :imbar I'm with you, Audreyfay: I doubt most young girls would wear thongs if they'd had to go through THAT experience! :chuckle

    We were shopping I had the 8 year old and my niece. We were looking at bras and panties for little girls and they had thongs! Not only thongs, but little padded bra's too! LOL

    I'm a big girl, and they make thongs for us too. I have a lacey pair that I love. The other two are a lycra, cotton mix I think and not as comfortable. Now I really like the new briefs, Lane Bryant calls them "boy's cut" underwear. Similar to boxer briefs for men. I have gotta get more of them. Just my size just came out with some too, no seems through your clothes.

    Whooooooooooooooot !!!

    I hear ya ! And I'm with you and Earle.

    I had a couple pair when they first started coming out, and just could NOT get to feeling comfortable in them. NAH! Far prefer cotton bikini briefs, thank you !
    And, yes, your comparison to those old sanitary belts is perfect! :chuckle
    What a pain those were ! Yuk.

    excellent point about wearing appropriate panties under your work pants. that's another thread and nightmare in itself.

    Hey, that'll be an advantage to my thongs won't it? I won't have panty lines! LOL!

    Kim, instead of seeing pany lines, we'll see just butt at work, esp. in white pants. Definately NOT a good idea!!

    [font=franklin gothic medium]i like the regular roomy briefs....and the white feel cleaner for some reason. lol. thongs are not the most comfortable. bikinis usually aren't very comfortable either. i like the boyshort style, but i had them in nylon and was getting too many infections. if i saw them in cotton, i would buy them.
