Thong Diary: Living Up to Their Reputation

Ask me a month ago if I would consider spending $23 on one pair of underwear and I would respond with a resounding “No way, Jose!” My underwear comes from the 70% clearance rack at Target.

We sell Hanky Panky thongs at Hot Mama. They have a cult following. Customer feedback about these pretty, stretchy lace, one-size-fits-all undergarments is nothing but positive.  Ok, so maybe they’re comfortable, but $23 comfortable? Beyond my frugal comprehension.

Resistance was futile. I just HAD to know what was so incredible about these panties. If for no other reason than to be able to educate my non-Hanky Panky customers about them (or so I told myself). Heck, if these panties could raise another woman’s quality of life, who am I to hold them back, right?

($23, $23, $23.  Dear Lord, forgive me…) I bought my first Hanky Panky thong a few weeks ago and wore it strategically for the first time on Monday.

Fortunately (and unfortunately for my wallet), they completely lived up to their reputation. So comfortable, I forgot I was wearing underwear. No muffin top whatsoever.  And most importantly, I felt a bit more confident in them. Should something happen to me that my underwear would be exposed to the world, I would harbor no shame. There is definitely value in that. But enough to justify the price tag? Almost…

This little video made its way around the Hot Mama family. It was the icing on the cake for me. To learn that Hanky Panky lingerie is made in the USA was a wonderful surprise. I’m now fully on board. Though I can’t afford to swap my panty choice overnight, I will continue to buy Hanky Panky thongs (one at a time) in the future. I’m a believer.

About Hanky Panky

The original designs were the inspiration for the company name, Hanky Panky. Blending traditional with modern glam looks, Hanky Panky is a fashion favorite of countless celebrities.
