All about thongs: how to find the right size and style for you
Thongs can be both sexy and practical, but many women are cautious about wearing thongs due to fears they’re not comfortable. We’re here to debunk the discomfort myth and show you that thongs are actually one of the most comfortable forms of underwear, so long as you find the right size and style for you!
What size thong should you wear?
If you’re wondering how to wear a thong comfortably, it’s all about getting the right size. Your thong size will generally be the same size as your normal underwear. If you’re unsure what this is, the below sizing guide will help:
 UK waist size for clothing and underwear
Your waist measurement will be around the narrowest part of your waist. Your hip measurement will be the fullest part of the hips. If you find your hips and waist are closer to different sizes, for example if one is closer to a size 12 and one a size 14, go for the larger size to avoid the thong being tight and uncomfortable.
You will know it’s time to measure up if you notice your underwear is digging into your skin, or if it’s too loose.
How should a thong fit and feel when it’s the right size?
Strappy and sexy should not equal discomfort! As with any item of clothing, the most important thing is to feel happy and comfortable wearing it. So long as you select the right size, you can be comfortable in a thong.
When a thong fits correctly, the seams or straps fit over your hips and bum without cutting in, but they aren’t too loose either. If you’re wondering how to tell if a thong is too small, a clear indication is if your skin has red lines after wearing it. A thong fits in the front if it doesn’t feel too tight and doesn’t droop (a definite no!)
What thong should I wear?
Now you know how to find the correct size thong, you can decide the type you want to wear. Thongs come in all sizes, colours, fabrics and styles, so there’s a huge selection out there for you to try. For example, lace thongs are both stretchy and feminine, and are available in different styles, colours and looks, rom cute to risqué. Or venture to silk and satin thongs for a sensual, sexy and luxurious feel.
In terms of the thong style, a G-string is flattering and can accentuate the hips beautifully. G-strings are also very practical in terms of avoiding visible panty lines showing through clothes. If you’re wearing a tight dress, a high-waisted thong can reduce panty lines around your hips.
Lace thongs and those with trims or embellishments look fabulous, but have a higher risk of panty lines or showing through clothing. But they can be worn as a seductive secret under looser clothes (or without!)
