As many of you (who follow fashion trends) may know, for the past few years we've been bombarded with articles in magazines and fashion sites with titles proclaiming "The Thong Is Dead" and "Granny Panties Are In, Sexy Underwear Is Out.", while that may be true, the fact of the matter is that despite not being the go-to underwear for us women like it was in 2000-2003, the thong really isn't going anywhere and there are no signs of them sharing the same fate as the knickers and bloomers of the 1920s.
In fact, they're still as popular as ever. I wear them more often than not, many of my friends wear them, the department stores and lingerie shops still stock a variety. Since their first introduction in Europe in the 1970s, thongs have maintained their allure and status as the most daring underwear, hence why they've been so popular for so long.
But there are other reasons for their staying power, aside from their "taboo" allure.
(Remember: This is all subjective and represents my viewpoints, I'm just sharing my opinion.)
1. Thongs Will Always Be In Fashion
Despite what the fashion critics say, they're still quite fashionable. What other panty goes along with just about every other piece of your wardrobe? Not many, aside from the new "seamless" panty. I can wear tight jeans and little black dresses without having to worry about the dreaded visible pantyline showing up and trashing my entire look, which can lead to major, public embarassment.
2. Thongs Are Really Quite Comfortable
In fact, thongs are the most comfortable panty you can wear. There's not much fabric to make you uncomfortable to begin with, your downstairs region stays cooler, panty ride-up and front wedgies are non-existant, and while wearing thongs made of cotton, there's almost no chafing what so ever. Compare that to fuller cuts that you have to pick out of your bum constantly and makes your vulve feel like it's trapped in the amazon jungle in the middle of summer.
3. Thongs Naturally Fit the Female Body
Becuase of their inherit minimalism, movements are not restricted which makes them ideal for wearing under clothes whenever you workout, go jogging, play athletic sports or whenever you anticipate being active on your feet or not. That's mostly due to the fact that your butt is actually two really big muscles full of twitch fibers that your legs rely on for mobility (and also the reason why kicks are considered more powerful than punches), they flex and contract while we're active. Due to thongs being what they are- panties without back coverage- they allow our glutes to do what they're actually designed to do without constraint.
4. Thongs Are Cheap
Mostly, again, due to the lack of fabric. I can actually go to Walmart and buy a 5 pack for $10.
5.You'll Look Sexy When The Clothes Come Off
One of the obvious pluses for wearing a thong is the fact that men love them and love seeing their girlfriends/wives wearing them. When he pulls down your pants or lifts up your skirt to see your bumbum in it's natural state, it drives him bonkers and that can lead to some really good things. It's almost a given that the sex that follows is going to be really hot and very kinky. In survey after survey, men list thongs and g-strings as their favorite kind of undergarment for one obvious reason- It's the most primal underwear, the most naked you will ever be while wearing something and that turns men on like nothing else.
The ONLY major drawback to wearing thongs is that they can become unsanitary if you wear the same pair for too long and you don't wash them. That's it, there are so many pluses to wearing them that it's stupid, hence they got so popular and there are no signs of them going the way of shoulder pads anytime soon.
I would love to hear some opinions and I hope you all enjoyed this myTake.
