So what I'm asking is, what motivated you to want to try and join the thong world in spite of the obvious discomforts associated therein?
Also, I've noticed that they do charge a lot for underwear, and the skimpier the more expensive. I was dating a girl who I took to victoria's secret because she wanted to just "pick up some bras". I thought, "that's fine, I bet they'll be like buying socks; You get your size and just throw a bunch into a bag." Well the one braw she wants is $40! I couldn't believe it. I was like "is it bullet resistant?" Then we were looking at these (admitedly sexy) tiny little fabric thongs made of string and a piece of cheesecloth and they were ten bucks...on CLEARANCE. So yeah, it sounds like "beauty" costs a lot, these days.
To answer your first question: I thought maybe I was too hasty in my decision as my best friend was adamant that they rocked. She told me to go check and see how wide the back strappy thing was. She then told me the thinner it was, the better. So I got a different pair and tried again. Once again, they did nothing for me and I realized I was right on the first go.
Oh yeah, Victoria's Secret is spendy. I just got a catalog from there that had clearance stuff in it. First of all, I couldn't believe what they show in those things. I had to hide it from my husband! ( Just to be on the safe side
) They had thongs that had a string of pearls for the strap in the back and a 1 1/2 inch gauzy, butterfly looking thing for the front. I was altogether shocked at the thing, and even more so when I saw it was 12 bucks on CLEARANCE!
My oldest daughter happened to pick up the catalog and was looking through it. I heard a horrified yell, and she came running and pointing. The look on her face was hysterical. She yelled, "Oh my gosh, Mom....what is wrong with these underwear?! Ewwwm her whole butt is showing!." She very disgustedly slapped it shut and informed me that was just gross because your butt would touch your pants.
I'd never voiced my opinion on them, but that's my
