For the past couple of years I kept hearing about Hanky Panky underwear and I brushed them off. The words "overpriced" "one size fits all? really?" and "what a silly brand name" often came to mind.
Until one day, after a fit of anger because none of the underwear I had in my drawer seemed to be comfortable or seamless enough for a particular outfit, I caved and ordered a pair of the Hanky Panky lace low rise thong.
First let me tell you, I'm a "lacy cute boy shorts" kind of girl. I always buy them in a myriad of cute prints 3 for $30 at Victoria's Secret. I find them flattering and cute. I am not a "thong" girl. I wear those when I have to but I do not enjoy it, I just find them uncomfortable. Some of them cut at unflattering areas of the hip, etc.
The Hanky Panky thongs are SO comfortable. They wear and wash well and I have just purchased my 4th pair. At $18 each they're pricy and there are similar panties on the market - La Senza and Victoria's Secret tried to make "dupes" of it but I owned both versions and they don't hold up after multiple washes and dryer tumbles, nor are they as comfortable as these.
Sometimes you can get lucky and find them on sale at Nordstrom/Saks/Neimans outlets.
They come in many different colours, and they are one size fits all. They don't cut off at any unflattering part of the hips, they don't have seams showing through, and I just love them!
I figured with holiday party season looming and any sort of tight dresses/skirt options out there, I should mention that these are definitely worth a try. Especially if you're a "thongs are the devil but sometimes I have to" girl like me.
Hope your day was less rainy than mine!
PS: I had lots of requests to do a Facebook Page so I did - I figured it will be a great way to streamline new updates on both my YouTube Channel and the blog. Some people don't know I have both, some don't like subscribing to too many things, etc... so I figured it was good to have. I will post mini beauty product thoughts on there as well since sometimes I feel like I pollute my twitter feed with too many obsessive product rants.
