C-String: The New G-String?
June 12, 2007 7:42 pm Posted in Style
I went commando to my high school prom.
This wasn’t an attempt for post-prom easy access. And I wasn’t trying to be sexy for my date.
It just so happened that I couldn’t find a single thong or no-show panty that didn’t expose a visible panty line in my dress. Under certain material, even seamless panties won’t do the trick.
So what’s a girl to do?
Fortunately, some European designer loathes panty lines just as much as I do and has remedied this chronic problem. I introduce to you… the C-string!
LoveHoney—the makers of the C-string—describe their product as invisible underwear. The website says “C-String has a flexible internal frame that hugs and holds it to the body both securely and comfortably. Your modesty remains safely covered at all times.” Basically, it’s a thong sans side-straps that is shaped like the letter C. Awesome.
While I’m the #1 cheerleader for anything that diminishes panty lines, a few skeptical thoughts came to mind when I saw this nouveau thong:
• Uhh… is it just me, or is that a headband? I don’t know about you… but I’m not really down with wearing a headband as a thong. I’m all for versatile clothing, but that’s pushing it.
• Could that possibly be comfortable? There is basically a cotton-covered wire in your crack. Hmm. Questionable.
• Would guys even find it sexy? Yea, I know, guys think thongs are hot. But the C-string looks kind of awkward.
That being said, the sole review of the C-string on the product website claims that it’s both sexy and “surprisingly comfortable.”
I was considering ordering it until I realized that one C-string would cost me nearly $50 (including overseas shipping and handling).
I think I’ll let the rest of the world feel the C-string out first. If I can get a few people to promise me that it didn’t fall off in the middle of the street, I’ll give it a shot. Until then, I’m going commando. Or maybe I’ll wear a headband of my own.
