Bikinis and Thongs with Waistbands or Without
Some of you probably already know my answer to the title of my post for me. I for one do not like bikinis and thongs with the waistbands (you know the elastic only ones). I especially dislike ones blaring the brand name on them. Now I have bought ones with the waistbands, but they have to meet certain criterion. First something with them must have grabbed my attention if I’m considering them. They’d most likely have no branding or it has to be pretty subtle. Then they need to be at least under 3/4″ or maybe even 1/2″ or under.
So why am I not a fan of them? For me I find the bikinis and thongs that do not feature the waistband look better. I feel they are more sleek and accentuate the body better. You typically get the fabric look all the way around not just the pouch and rear, which I feel is aesthetically better looking. Waistbands make me think of briefs and I’m obviously not a fan of them. I find there is more squeeze around the waist than I want especially when the waistband is wide.
I did start out my bikini journey with pairs with waistbands. That is what I found locally and they did get me hooked on them. My first pair or package of pairs had a fairly wide waistband, which is when I decided I liked narrow ones. Shortly after the first I went back and got I believe the Hanes string bikini brand with over half the width waistband of the first. I’m pretty sure my favorite brand from the local store was called Brut. They had plain white waistbands and I found them very comfortable. If they were still available I could still see me pulling them out of the drawer.
So I’m not totally against the elastic only waistbands. I’m just very picky with those styles. Right now I can only think of one pair in my drawer with a waistband that I wear regularly. The other ones will probably be purged once I get around to that task. Do you prefer one over the other or do you have a mixture of both? Do you like the bold branding or not?
