Hanky Panky makes truly comfortable thongs. If you don't believe us, well nearly every fashion magazine out there (including InStyle and others) has said so. What's great is the wide band of lace fits flat against your skin, doesn't cut into your hips, causing an obvious panty line and is seamless on sides and in the back. But even better, it stretches and it snaps back into shape. It's a great basic at a great price, buy a bunch of them and fall in love. The low rise style, popular in demand, is new from Hanky Panky. The thong is approximately 2" lower than the regular style.
