Because an uncomfortable thong can ruin your entire day.
A ceaseless struggle early morning – between battling my bed sheets and attempting a homicide aimed at my alarm clock that hums of roosters cockadoodling – is putting together the appropriate attire. Between picking what flats to wear (my new Sam Edelman’s) or being “solefully scarlet” in Louboutin’s (I wish!) putting together a day’s outfit is essential from top to bottom. So to the girls gushing over their tops stay in the know and for those who worry about their bottoms….well, just keep reading.
What we wear = always discussed.
What we wear under what we wear = hardly discussed.
Not until Sisqo put some debatably poetic words to music and made a killing off of the female undergarment, the thong.
We spoke of the topic, awkwardly admitting our need to pick and pull at what my grandmother refers to as floss, to come up with the best answers to your too-embarrassing-to-ask-your-bff questions.
If you pick the wrong thong, your whole day is doomed. Am I right?
So, I entrusted in Kym Douglass, lifestyle regular on The ELLEN Show, and the author of the best selling new book and movement Bliss Happens to help me help you navigate the world of thongs.
A Thong For The Comfy Chick
If you’re the woman who dresses for coziness or more commonly found in your fav. relaxed jeans or boyfriends sweat pants, go for a fabric that is soft and stretchy. We love this style for the gym or a lazy day! If you’re unsure of the size, Douglass said go bigger to be sure.
A Thong For The Healthy Nut
If you are conscious about your health and deterring from giving off a scent, Douglass says choose a thong that is lacey and mesh. This material is breathable and stretchy, and most brands have a thong that serves this function. We recommend this type in the summer months and especially for those who sit at a desk for a majority of the day.
A Thong For The Mysterious Woman
Who wants to be that girl at the office work party who is wearing a gorgeous sleek and slimming dress, only to turn around and her underwear line shows? The best thong for this, is one that runs a little bigger than normal. We recommend a lace material around the hips of no larger than an inch in width. Stick with a neutral color.
A Thong For Him
Since I’m still a “Miss.” and 22, Douglass helped to dissect the myths and fits of styling for your man. “I’ve been married for a loooong time but I have to tell you with all the TV sexy lingerie fashion shows I host and my husband and my friends husbands and boyfriends it always comes down to “BASIC BLACK”,” she said. “Forget the pink, frilly, polk-a-dot, sparkle bling undies.” I guess less is best? Pun intended.
THONG CARE 101
Thongs can cause irritation and go as far as to increase the chances of yeast infections or rashes. “If you are wearing a thong, it is so important to wash it with a fragrance free lingerie or delicate clothing type soap,” Douglass said. Especially during that time of the month, the best thong is a simple cotton material bikini cut. Make sure to change your undergarments after exercise and after sleep. This will prevent the dreaded irritation and uncomfort.
