Thong Diary: My Sisters

I am extraordinarily proud of my two sisters. Valerie, who passed all the required exams in an incredibly short period of time, is a financial planner, and provides investment advice to my family and many others. My other sister has a PhD, is an accomplished cellist, has many civic accolades, worked with NYPD, and just happened to have a friendship with a woman named Gale which led to their founding the most unusual company ever… Yes, that’s my baby sister Lida.

I speak at medical meetings three or more times a week across the US. During the past year I always ask the audience if they have heard of Hanky Panky. Not one time have I been disappointed. I also recognize that the yelps of surprise to my question indicates that someone is wearing a Hanky Panky item, probably the iconic thong.

About Hanky Panky

In 1977, designer Gale Epstein created a hand-made lingerie set for her friend, Lida Orzeck, crafted out of embroidered handkerchiefs. 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.
