Ok, so there's a lot of contraversy over women wearing thongs. 14-year-old boys who love seeing them on girls in Maxim turn into 44-year-old men with daughters that age & who cringe to find the bubblegum pink strip of cloth in the laundry, knowing it's definitely not his wife's. His head races with all the things she could be doing that those girls did with him back in his high school and college days. Or at least I'm guessing that's what goes through any dad's mind, or any young man who expects a daughter someday.
It's obvious there's sex appeal that comes with them. After all, thongs became mainstream when strippers were required by law to cover their coochie, but nothing said anything about covering the cheeks. Hence, "loin cloths" offered a loophole, & became a feminine thing to wear after strippers brought them into light.
So are thongs really that taboo for young girls to wear? Personally, I wouldn't let my daughter wear a thong until she's 15. But there is some practicality to thongs for any woman, even the purest, most innocent girl. Thongs serve for the avoidance of tacky panty lines, or where the seams bulge out at the butt of your pants. This especially happens with nice slacks or yoga pants, and personally, when I see it on a girl, I can't help but think, "Don't you own a thong?" It just doesn't look good.
If thongs are absolutely too much for someone, I can understand seamless, but let's admit, I & many girls feel cute in a thong. I mean, you get to show off what your mama gave ya, even if it's just within the confines of your pants! Like a little secret you've got; doesn't have to be Victoria's!
So thongs...practical or promiscuous? A bit of both. But it goes with the attitude regarding how & why you wear them. Whale tail? Trying too hard. A nice surprise for your boyfriend? No doubt he'll love it! And even just keeping it classy underneath yogas or snug-fitting slacks is a-ok too. Whatever you decide, play it up with different colors & designs, doesn't hurt to make it fun. :)
