It seems like I see so many posts where people get up in arms about thong underwear.<br><br>
I wear thongs, my dds wear thongs. I don't see them as sexy at all - I can think of much more attractive, sexy underpants. I wear flesh colored thongs for comfort and for utility - no vpl, no show through. I have been told by men that visible underwear lines are much more provocative, as they aid in imagining the person in just the underwear. Doesn't that make the unseen thong LESS provocative and so less sexual, whether on a child or an adult?<br><br>
The whole "OMG a thong on a child" thing mystifies me.

Thong swimsuits?<br><br>
Plus, there have been some threads on needing to help children clean down there, and a thong just sounds like a smeary option if a child has that problem.<br><br>
Not that I care what you wear as underwear as long as your crack doesn't peek out of your pants when you sit in front of me in class. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
A lot of people seem to think that if it's something they'd never ever do that it must be inherently wrong, even for minor things.

I thought the main issue with thongs is the "whale tail"? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shrug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shrug">

If you have showing "whale tail" then you are not wearing the right thong for that particular pair of pants. The whole idea of a thong is for it to be invisible, so if your pants are low cut, your thong should be as well. It's also a good idea to <i>sit</i> and check out that you are not showing more than you should.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I don't know how anybody wears those things <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/duck.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Duck">: I tried them when I was younger and they really hurt!

I wear them sometimes if I know my panty lines will really show up. My mother has a major problem with thongs. She thinks they are trashy and if she has a feeling I have one on, she yells at me (most of the times I don't have one on). Now my husband on the other hand, if it was up to him, he would make me just walk around in a house wearing a thong <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br>
Now, I never wore them when I was younger, just as a "mama"

back when i used to wear underwear (section scar makes it unbearable now) i rocked thongs all the time. and yeah, it totally was cuz i thought they were sexxy. and men thought so too. why else would dancers use them as uniforms? i mean, the whole time i was dancing, i never once saw another woman give a lap dance in granny draws. for comfort? i'd wear boyshorts before a thong anyday.<br><br>
and i do think it's inappropriate for young girls (think, like, under 13 or 14) to wear thongs. but i feel that way about mini skirts, bikinis, (not tankinis, but the triangle shaped cup style bikinis) high pointy heels, low cut shirts, etc.<br><br>
i respect that my daughter is a sexual, sensual being. but that doesn't mean that i agree with her expressing that through clothing before she can understand the (unfortunate, cultural) affect those clothes can have on people. (not just men, in fact, i've never been called a slut by a man, only by other females.)

Maybe its my bubble butt, but thongs are not comfortable for me. To curb the VPL, I like thin seamless panties. They work pretty well for me.

What I don't get are control top thongs. I figured if I need control top then I really have no business wearing a thong! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/duck.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Duck">:

I just bought some thongs for the first time in my life. I had been wearing my post partum granny panties for almost 2 years and decided to get it together and buy some cute undies. I like them, I was really surprised, but I do! If they are the right size, you barely feel them and no panty lines.<br><br>
I'm not sure what age I would be ok with dd wearing them though. I'm finding my way as a mama to a little girl. I've got lots of learning to do.

Yea, if I have pants on that are tight... the first thing she'll say is "I better not see your thong hanging out!" ha ha (most of the times I'm not wearing one)... She works in a school and deals with that all day long- and I guess one time I leaned over in front of her, and it stuck out a little and since there she gives me a hard time.<br>
She says thongs should be illegal. She ties thongs in with sex, and when a girl is wearing a thong she's "asking for it" apparently and well, if the girl isn't married that she is sinning because you shouldn't have sex before marriage :) (She lectures her students on how you need to wait till you are married)<br><br>
...I only started wearing thongs after I was married...so why she needs to worry about it, I don't know...but "I'm her little baby!" :)

How does that even work? Is it like a control top for the tummy above the thong? That could make sense, I know my legs are a heck of a lot better looking than my stomach.

Unseen is find, but most little girls I know have their undies seen by all if they are wearing a dress. They forget.
