Introduced in 2008, the retro thong was a radical departure from the ultra-low-rise panties widely available at the time. Always a fashion innovator, Hanky Panky co-founder and creative director Gale Epstein knew that “what goes down, must come up,” and had the Retro Thong ready for fashionable women to wear under the changing styles to come. Now that the high-waist silhouette is an established trend, the Retro Thong’s appeal continues to grow, and it is available in a variety of prints and colors, in one size to fit women who wear sizes 0-12, and one size plus to fit women who wear sizes 14-24.
