Top 10 Comfortable Thongs

Avoid VPL - visible panty lines - without sacrificing comfort.


Thong panties are available in a wide range of styles that will fit every body type differently. Improved fabric technologies and better styling details practically guarantee that you'll find one as comfortable as a second skin. Here are my top ten.    


1. 'Invisi’bulles' by Simone Pérèle

Simone Pérèle

The 'Invisi’bulles' thong by Simone Pérèle is an extremely lightweight microfiber thong. It's seams are bonded together instead of stitched -- to make sure it feels like it's barely there. The seamless edges lie flat and stay in place.

2. 'Breathe' by Barely There

The 'Breathe' thong by Barely There was one of HerRoom's Undie Award winners. It's made from nylon and spandex, blended in a specific way to create a very soft, breathable fabric. It has a wide low-rise waistband that lies flat against your body, and is tagless for extra comfort. The sides are seamless, to prevent panty lines.

3. The 'Invisibles' Thong by Calvin Klein

The 'Invisibles' thong by Calvin Klein is made from extra lightweight microfiber, for a 'second skin fit,' which is designed to banish panty lines. It has smooth laser-cut edges that will lie flat against your curves. This low-rise style is also tagless.

4. 'Silk Magic' by Elita

This microfiber thong, called 'Silk Magic' by Elita, has high-cut legs and a high waist. It's a style that will fit better under pants that aren't low-waisted -- and you won't always think they're falling down. They feature a covered elastic waistband, which is designed to be extra comfortable and not show under clothes.

5. 'Tiny' by Commando


Commando's 'Tiny' thong is seamless and edgeless, so it lies flat against the body. It's for girls who believe 'less is more,' when it comes to thong styles. The sides measure just over an inch, while the thong strap is just ½ inch at its narrowest point. The stretch microfiber fabric is a nylon and spandex blend.  


6. ‘Skinny Britches’ by Spanx


The 'Skinny Britches' thong by Spanx is a lightweight nylon and spandex blend that's made to feel like you're wearing nothing. The slightly wide sides and back are designed for extra comfort, which will fit curvier figures well. A split waistband design keeps it stays flat and in place.

7. 'Workout' by Moving Comfort

Moving Comfort's 'Workout' thong is essential for any girl who likes to wear a thong while working out. It is made with a nylon and spandex fabric blend that has moisture-wicking properties, plus a built-in mesh zone for ventilation. No design detail was over-looked -- it also has laser-cut edges to prevent chafing and irritation.


8. Microfiber Plus-Size, by Cacique


This pretty and comfortable microfiber thong by Cacique, Lane Bryant's private label brand, is made with a soft microfiber blend of nylon and spandex. Designed to stay in place while hugging your curves, the front is generously cut -- and provides extra coverage in all the right places. It's available in sizes 12 through 28.

9. 'No Visible Panty Line' by Ambrielle


Ambrielle's 'No Visible Panty Line' is a soft, smooth, tagless thong. It's made with a stretchy nylon and spandex blend. 

10. 'Retro Regular Rise' Plus-Size by Hanky Panky


Hanky Panky's 'Retro Regular Rise' thong is made for plus-size figures. It sits at your natural waistline, which can be a welcome change from the low-rise styles that have become so popular. Made from soft stretch lace, the front and sides are extra wide to provide comfortable coverage for curvier figures, and the back isn't too skimpy either. The lace is so stretchy that one size fits women 14 through 24.
