There are many reasons to wear a thong more often! Most women think they can only be worn with certain outfits or for special occasions, but these amazing pieces of lingerie can honestly be worn every single day... so here are a few of the many reasons to wear a thong!
1. No Panty Line
Visible panty lines wherever you are is definitely a girl’s worst nightmare. But when working in a professional setting, if I’m wearing a white pair of pants and my pink bow-tie panties are visible to everyone there, I know I would be so beyond embarrassed! Of the many reason to wear a thong, one great one is that these visible panty lines are literally nonexistent. So no shame in wearing those tight white pants around the office... no one can see them.
I was bragging to one of my girlfriends the other day about how I love wearing a thong more often than not, and her response was, "but aren’t they so uncomfortable?" and to answer everyone’s questions regarding this statement, NO they’re not at all! In fact it’s the opposite. A great reason to wear a thong is that they are the most comfortable pieces of underwear out there simply because there is so little fabric it is hard to make you uncomfortable. And beyond that, the smooth, silky-based cotton ones never cause chaffing, only comfort.
3. How You Feel underneath Shows on the outside
Most of my friends who wear thongs as often as I do claim the same thing: that wearing a thong makes them feel more attractive. It’s probably because it’s the one piece of lingerie you can wear on a daily basis that is full of sex appeal. And it’s obvious why, because it is the sexiest undergarment out there!
4. Makes You Look Your Sexiest
Many women think a thong doesn’t go with the majority of their wardrobe, but wearing a thong can be that dose of sexiness that is missing underneath. And besides that, it makes your entire lower half look its sexiest (whether you are in shape or not), which can change the look of your entire outfit… for the better!
5. Huge Turn on to the opposite Sex
When talking with my guy friends about these magical undergarments, they were very passionate about making me understand the fact that a thong is actually the sexiest thing a girl can wear. As a strong believer in all these reasons to wear a thong, I continued to inquire, at which point they told me it’s a huge turn on and definitely a deal breaker under the sheets. I don’t think I’ll ever wear grandma panties again!
6. You Can Gain Weight
Women’s bodies are very complicated and thus misunderstood. It seems as if doctors are still trying to understand the ins and outs of our bodies and minds in an effort to explain it to our spouses as best as possible. And one obvious fact about women’s bodies is that most tend to fluctuate in weight from time to time. Whether you have had four children, or you’re going through puberty, your body tends to act like it has a mind of its own. The great thing about wearing a thong under all that is that, considering how’s it’s shaped, it’s an undergarment that isn’t really dependent on whether or not you gain or lose 5-10 pounds.
7. Easier to Work out in
When I’m wearing a thong, I feel as free as the wind. So eliminate that clichéd fallacy from your mind that thongs are uncomfortable to work out in, and give it a shot.
8. Fashion Conscious
Whether you have a passion for fashion or you just wear whatever’s comfy, your clothes look much better with a thong on underneath. It’s not just the visible panty line issue.Thongs are much more discreet than wearing a standard panty, so you can be more daring with the types of fabric, color and design of clothes you wear!
9. They Look Good
Another great thing about wearing a thong is that they make your bum look its most natural and its best! Whether you wear thongs to feel sexy or want to surprise your significant other with some eye candy, it’s the perfect way to look your best with clothes on or off!
10. You Won’t Get Undesired Attention
If you’re wearing a thong that fits correctly and not sporting a whale tail, no one will know what you’re wearing. With traditional panties, however, you can get some undesirable attention from men who can see your panty line. I’ve heard some men say that panty lines are sexy because they can see the outline of the bum! You won’t have that problem with a thong!
11. No Ride up
Many women prefer wearing a thong because they’ve found that it’s one of the few types of underwear that doesn’t ride up on them. If you’ve had the unfortunate experience of having your panties ride up, cling or give you a frontal wedgie, try a thong!
12. Sexy Variety
Thongs are meant to be sexy, so you won't have trouble finding adorable ones on your next shopping trip. Unlike other underwear, which can have childish cartoons on them, all you'll find on thongs are pretty colors and maybe even some lace.
13. Less Expensive
Of course, the price depends on what store you're visiting. However, there are a lot of stores that have good deals on thongs. Some will let you buy 5 for $25 or will have a similar deal. You can't get better than that.
14. More Natural Shape
When you wear other types of underwear, they'll make your bottom look like it's shaped differently. Of course, your body is beautiful just the way it is, so you wouldn't want it to appear any differently. That's why thongs are great! They won't make the shape of your bottom look different.
15. Won't Press on Cellulite
Most women hate their cellulite, so they don't want to be reminded of the fact that it exists. When you wear other types of underwear, it can press on your cellulite. However, thongs will never do that.
16. Keeps You Cool
There's less material covering you up, which means that your body will stay cool on hot summer days. If you're planning on working outside with the sun beating down on you, a thong is your best option. It'll keep you from getting overheated.
17. No Bunching
If you're used to wearing super tight jeans, thongs will be much more comfortable. When you wear other, looser underwear, it can bunch up when you're trying to slip into your pants. With thongs, that'll never happen, because the material will never be in the way.
18. Feel Older
Thongs aren't something that little kids wear, so wearing them can make you feel more mature. It proves that you're old enough to make your own decisions and wear what you want to wear. It's a great way to feel like an actual adult.
19. Different Materials
Thongs aren't all made out of the same material. You can own a dozen pairs and they'll all feel different. There are ones that are made out of cotton and ones that are made out of silk. If you don't like one type of material, there's bound to be another that you'd be comfortable in.
20. No Seams
When you're sitting for a long time, the seams in your underwear can start to irritate you. When you're wearing a thong, you don't have to worry about that. You can sit around all day without growing irritated by the seams digging into your skin.
21. Less Acne
Acne doesn't only appear on your face. If you wear other types of underwear, it can cause friction on your bottom and make you break out. With thongs, that won't happen, so your skin will stay clear down there.
22. Space Saver
If you have drawers filled with clothes, you won't have much room for new items. However, thongs are so small that they'll be easy to fit in any packed drawer. You won't have to worry about them taking up room and cluttering your drawers.
The best part of wearing thongs is that they'll make you feel much more confident about your body. It doesn't matter that no one around you can tell what's under your jeans, because you know and that's the important thing. So put on your favorite thong and walk with confidence!
There is a movie that came out in 2005 starring Toni Collette and Cameron Diaz called In Her Shoes. Now bear with me, the film is about two wildly different sisters, one is much younger and more adventurous (Diaz) while the other is hardworking and uptight (Collette). And one of the themes that continues coming up in the film is that Toni Collette claims she is so different from her sister and she would look ridiculous in a thong, but by the end of the film she is wearing thongs and having more confidence in herself despite her middle-aged loneliness and career success. So no matter what age you are or how much confidence you are lacking, consider trying on a thong and be open to some change... you may be surprised to find there are many reasons to wear a thong! Tell us, have you tried thongs?
