The Do’s And Don’ts Of Wearing Thong Panties

The world of lingerie is beautiful, but it could be a scary journey for some women at the same time. Undergarments take on an entirely new dimension for those who’ve never explored their choices before. Did you know that garter belts exist? What about chemises and balconettes? And of course, there are the ever-famous thongs and G-strings. The subject of women’s underwear is a lot more extensive than you might expect. Now that everyone seems to be spending much more time at home than usual, it’s a great time to brush up on your lingerie knowledge and discover the do’s and don’ts of wearing thong panties. 

Quick Facts For First-Time Thong Users

It’s essential that you choose the most comfortable thong panties when wearing one for the first time. Getting used to thongs takes some time, so don’t feel the need to rush yourself. 

As a first-time thong user, it’s essential that you quickly learn and adapt to this underwear style to remain comfortable but discreet. Many beginners think that wearing a thong is the same as wearing nothing; however, this is far from the truth. When it comes to the type of thong that will be worn with an outfit, the different types serve various purposes. 

Did you know that if you’re wearing high-waisted pants, jeans, or leggings, you have the option of wearing a thong that comes with a high-waisted design to match your outfit? Similarly, you should wear a low-rise thong to match your low-rise denim or pants to prevent them from peeking above the waistline. 

When To Wear Thongs 

Thongs are best worn with tight-fitting clothing that otherwise creates panty lines. As such, thongs are primarily worn to conceal panty lines that are unsightly and catch others’ attention. For working moms, they might prefer to wear thongs with their must-have fashion items because it gives them that boost of confidence.

Thongs can also be worn as part of any look that leaves a mark when paired with regular underwear. You wouldn’t want others to know about the boy shorts you’re wearing underneath your clothes. Considering the fit of women’s clothes today, thongs are an excellent way to keep those creases hidden. 

It’s best to wear thongs when your outfit is similar to the ones below: 

  • Even though jeans are thick, you still need a thong because they conform better to the bum than your regular panties.
  • The fabric used in leggings is so light that it shows lines clearly, so a thong is required. Just make sure nothing sensitive becomes visible because of the leggings.
  • Yoga pants can be worn both while lounging or working out in the gym, so you’ll need a thong as the spandex makes every nook and cranny stand out. 
  • If your dress wraps around your waist before fitting over your bum, you’ll need a thong because the dress is smooth around most of your back. 

When Not To Wear Thongs 

You shouldn’t wear thongs if you’re too young or if your parents disapprove. Some outfits could probably do with a thong underneath if you’re at the age to make your own choices. How is that relevant? For example, if a skirt is too short or too sheer, a certain outfit can reveal your underwear. In addition to parental permission, it’s best to avoid wearing a thong during your period unless you wear thong panty liners. 

In terms of what you shouldn’t wear thongs with, it’s essential to consider the length of the skirt, as well as potential exposure. Avoid wearing a thong with a skater skirt or one that hangs over and twists in the breeze. A thong might also be inappropriate if you need to get dressed publicly and you’re embarrassed about people seeing your underwear in between outfit changes.

Consider These Factors When Wearing A Thong 

When you have your underwear up your bum, there can be some downsides such as feeling discomfort. To avoid this, consider the following factors when shopping for the right thong:

  • Fabric: Thong underwear is available in cotton, rayon, polyester, spandex, rayon blends, and satin, among others. As long as you’re comfortable, it doesn’t matter what fabric you choose for your thong underwear. 
  • Size: Before purchasing, make sure to check the size chart. Having undergarments that are too small can cause chafing and discomfort in your genital area, while too large thongs can slide around, giving you muffin-top lines. 
  • Fit: Thongs should feel comfortable and form-fitting. There are different styles of thongs and various waistbands: low-, mid-and high-rise options are available. Identify which one is right for you by exploring various fits. 


Whatever kind of underwear you choose, make sure it follows the underwear rules that result in your lady parts staying healthy. You should try other thong styles if you feel uncomfortable wearing thongs for the first time. The feeling at the beginning of wearing thongs may be uncomfortable, but it’s expected since it takes some time to become accustomed to it. To start off right, pick a cotton or nylon thong that allows for some stretch. Once you have a few pairs of thongs, you’ll know what style fits you best.
