The World’s Most Comfortable Thongs, According to Glamour Editors

When you hear the words “thong underwear,” do you immediately think permanent wedgies, pinching, and bunching? Totally understandable if the phrase does. But we’re here to adjust that mind-set. Because underwear preference is as personal a choice as you can get, we polled the office and found out which styles and brands the Glamour team counts as favorites. Here, six thong brands we’d gladly wear any day of the week.

Empowered by You thong, $22,
“I love these not only because they’re seamless, which means no VPL, but because they’re incredibly comfortable and never ride up or move. The best part is that the brand donates 20 percent of net profits to Seven Bar Foundation, a group that gives women microfinance loans to help them out of poverty and into business.” Nikki, senior online style editor

Under Armour UA pure stretch thong, $12,
“These are an absolute revelation. It feels like wearing nothing and doesn’t show through clothes. I wear them with dresses and workout pants.” Marissa, senior online editor

Hanky Panky lace thong, $20,
“It’s beyond comfortable, a non-boring ‘nude’ for me in pale pink, and so flattering.” Sophia, senior online fashion editor

Aerie vintage lace thong, $13,
“These are basically the only underwear I wear. I’m not exaggerating at all when I say I have a drawer full of probably 50 pairs—45 in black and five in nude. They’re not that expensive, pretty, fit beautifully without lines, and, best of all, can stand up to constant washing on regular wash cycles. I throw them in with whatever all the time and not a single pair has ever fallen apart.” Kat, digital managing editor

…and another vote for this pair!

“They’re super soft with the perfect amount of stretch and zero side squeeze. The top band is wide, so it lies flat, and the cut is way-low, so they never hang out of the back of your jeans.” Kim, weddings and home writer

Intimissimi seamless microfiber thong, $11,
“This pair has full frontal coverage and is light and comfortable. The fabric feels really nice against your skin. Unfortunately they don’t sell in the U.S., so you have to order online.” Jocelyn, associate director of audience development

Victoria’s Secret The Lacie thong, $12,
“These are the most breathable and wearable: not too tight, not too restrictive. I stock up on black and nude colors mostly, but the variety of other options makes wearing them extra fun.” Julianne, assistant online editor

OnGossamer Hip-G mesh thong, $16,
“The mesh makes for a light-as-air feel, and I love how tiny these are. I’ve found other styles to be long, and I’m always arranging them to sit properly and comfortable. That never happens with this pair. It’s like I actually forget I’m wearing underwear.” Leah, senior online fashion writer
