Over the years, thongs have gotten a bad reputation for being uncomfortable. While many women swear by this classic panty style, others cringe at the thought of wearing a thong and being uncomfortable all day long. But the truth is that, just like a good-fitting bra, a good-fitting thong will be so comfortable you won’t even know it’s there. Below, we’re sharing everything you need to know on how to comfortably wear a thong and the most comfortable styles to try.

But first, why wear a thong?

Thongs have been a lingerie staple for many years—and there’s a reason why they’re the go-to panty choice for countless women. Their minimal, barely-there design makes a thong a great style if you’re wearing slim-fitted clothing and are trying to avoid a noticeable panty line. Thongs are also amazing to wear when you want to get dressed up in a sexy lingerie set and feel like you’re most confident self. But one other great thing about thongs is that once you find a style, you’ll feel comfortable in, you’ll have no problem wearing them under jeans, breezy dresses, tailored suits, or any other clothing items.  

The bottom line is that whether you’re dressing to impress, are looking for a minimal underwear style that works under all your clothes, or simply boost your confidence; a thong is a wonderful lingerie piece to have in your wardrobe.

Who should wear a thong?

Thongs aren’t an exclusive piece of lingerie. Every woman should have a thong in her top drawer to pull out whenever she wants to avoid VPL or feel like her more confident self. This panty style can and should be worn by anyone who feels comfortable wearing it. At Bendon, we have an unbeatable range of thongs, so you’re guaranteed to find a style that works for you.

Are thongs comfortable?

The truth is that thongs are more comfortable than they appear. Thongs are usually 

made with soft, stretchy fabrics that fit perfectly on the skin because they stretch to your body. Thongs also come in seamless styles, which are great for everyday wear because they’re designed with comfort and breathability in mind. Plus, because thongs have less fabric than other underwear styles, there’s less chance your underwear will bunch or sag.

At Bendon, we believe if you find the right thong, it can be a very comfortable underwear option. Once you’ve got your perfect fit, you’ll quickly see how thongs are a practical, comfortable, and sexy panty style.

Are thongs bad for you?

Another common misconception about thongs is that they’re bad for your vaginal health, which couldn’t be further from the truth. According to research, string underwear had no effect on the area’s pH, microclimate, or microflora, meaning it’s not the underwear itself that can cause issues.  

If you’re concerned about the hygiene of wearing a thong, consider changing your underwear once or twice a day. Experts also advise choosing soft, natural fibres like cotton that are breathable and absorbent; this will help prevent chafing or irritations in the delicate area. 

Additionally, you can consider switching to different types of underwear for different occasions or based on how you’re feeling. Thongs might not be the best underwear choice for wearing on your period or when you’re heading to the gym, but they are ideal for those days when you want to avoid panty lines or feel extra confident.

How you can ensure wearing a thong is comfortable

Okay, so you’re ready to see what all the hype is about—now what? When shopping for thongs, there are a few ways to ensure the one you buy is comfortable. Remember, comfort is key when it comes to lingerie, so be sure you feel good in what you’re wearing.

Step 1: Focus on the fit

The first step in finding a comfortable thong is to focus on the fit. If your thong is too tight, it will surely be uncomfortable. On the flip side, if the fit is too loose, you won’t feel secure. The best thing is to ensure you buy a thong that is your perfect size. It’s important to note that size can vary based on the style and brand, so always consult a brand’s size guide when available. If you need more guidance on finding your perfect fit, consult our size guide to find your Bendon size. 

Once you’ve chosen a size, the next step is to make sure the thong sits comfortably on your skin and doesn’t dig in anywhere it shouldn’t. A proper fitting thong will not be tight, restrictive, or uncomfortable. Ask yourself if you like the rise of the thong and the thickness of the string. You may also want to pay attention to the fabric. Cotton fabrics and seamless styles are great options for everyday wear. While lace, silk, and satin fabrics can be better choices for those times when you want to look and feel your sexiest.

Step 2: Take time to get used to the feeling

It’s important to remember that it takes time to get used to the feeling of wearing a thong. If you’re new to this style, it might feel strange at first but don’t give up on it. It might take more than one day to get used to the fit, so be open when trying this style out. Once you get accustomed to the fit and are happy with the size and material, it will soon feel like any other style of panty. In fact, many women have come to prefer the feeling of thongs to other bulkier styles because of the minimal fabric and fit.
