Body_cdee84af-836b-4615-821c-51f32ae36932_1024x1024I am the first to say I am not an every day thong kind of guy. It’s not the first pick of underwear that I get. That is not because I am not a fan, I just prefer briefs as my go to choice for each day. Occasionally I’ll wear one and when I used to wear tight cowboy cut wranglers I would always wear a thong under them. But that’s been a few years!

The group of things I received from Kikini to review included the Stowe Classic thong. I chose this because of the print. The print is a, well I call it, a psychedelic cheetah print. It’s red, green and orange. The thing about Kiniki prints is there are so many to choose from it’s hard to decide what you want. They are making some of the best prints on the market.

Since I am not a thong guy I didn’t want to wear it on a too busy day. The thong it self had no defined pouch and the back looked a little larger than I liked. I slid it on and the front felt fine. The fabric stretched and fit pretty well. I actually was surprised how well it did in the pouch department. One of the biggest problems with non defined pouches is that the front can gap and things can fall out. This pair didn’t do that, it kept everything in place and felt great.

Let’s talk about the back. As I said above that the back seemed a little wide. The back strap is one of the biggest complaints we get for thongs. I had initial misgivings on the back. I just knew the back would drive me crazy. As the day went on I honestly forgot I was in a thong. The back never rubbed or drove me crazy. This really impressed me. I have to say good job Kiniki! I think it all goes back to the material, had it been cotton it would never have worked!

This pair performed amazing. My initial thoughts on the pair remind me never to judge a pair before I wear them. Sometimes I see things I know I may not like and it can make me pay attention to those areas more. This time my “don’t judge a book by it’s cover” came into play. Will I wear this pair again? Yes I definitely will!

Sizing in the brand has been pretty good. They have a very good size chart that you should follow. Kiniki is based out of the UK so sizing will differ slightly. The pair I received fit pretty well. Remember if you are on the boarder of a size always go with the larger size.
