2017 Thong Favorites

2017 Thong Favorites

Time for me to go over this years favorites or ones that got good wear. Take a look at 2016 Thong Favorites. Ok, my number one thong from last year has dropped out of the top 5. For some reason I didn’t wear my Blueline microfiber T-back thongs much this year. I think I may have worn their traditional thong more, but it’s not making the top 5. Also I dropped my number 2, the Fagioni clip thong. Still a solid comfortable thong that probably be in the top 10. Let’s look at my top 5 for 2017.


5. Daniel Alexander Risky Boxer

Don’t know if this should be categorized as a thong or not. It has between the cheek action, so that is giving it thong status. This is one I tried earlier this year and ended up buying 2 more of them. I like that they add something a bit different to the drawer, but still fits in pretty well with my bikini and thong wearing. I don’t know if I’m completely a fan of the look, but I like the feel of them on. Plus it holds the goods nicely.

Available at Mensuas or Daniel Alexander

4. Doreanse Euro Thong (1392)

This one is still holding the number 4 spot. The fabric of these is nice and soft. The pouch on the thong is smaller than a lot, but still holds me well. I put this in the category of a v-string, since it has a string connecting the pouch and the back. These still have a traditional thong look when on.

Available at Audace or BODYWEARforMEN

3. Bodyaware Soft Microfiber Thong

Moving from number 5 to 3 is the soft microfiber thong, which is no longer offered from Bodyaware. The fabric on these are hard to beat. It’s super soft and you really don’t know you are wearing a thong with these ones. Will be disappointed when I’ll have to retire these.

No Longer Available

2. JM Natura Thong
New to the list is the Natura thong from JM. This year was the first I gave the brand JM a try. The Skinz line is talked about more than this one, but I think the Natura edges out the Skinz thong. Natura’s fabric comfort to me wins out over the Skinz. It’s nice and soft and feels awesome on. Great pair choice for a lazy day. You really don’t notice you have a thong on. Skinz is more supportive though. Both are great traditional thongs.

Available at JM, but limited colors now.

1. Prevail Sport String Thong Brief

Up from number 3 is from my favorite brand the string thong brief. The JM thong would win in comfort, but this thong is a skimpier cut. So that is why I’m putting it at number one this year. It’s hard for me to not have a thong from a brand I’ve worn basically from the beginning of my wearing. I know when I pull it out of the drawer, I’m going to love the fit of them. It will be comfortable for the day. So tried and true is my winner for this year.

Available at Prevail Sport and Cotton/Lycra version


That wraps up my 2017 thong favorites. Maybe we’ll shake things up again next year. Next week we’ll see how the bikini favorites changed up or not.

    I have only tried the Doreanse Euro Thong out of these styles. Do you have any of the Doreanse Aire Strings? If so, how do you rate them?

    • No, haven’t gotten an Aire string yet. I was considering getting one when Audace was running a sale not too long. I decided I needed to hold off spending the money until I catch up on the pairs I’ve already have lined up to review. Is a pair I do want to get to try.

    Hi, have you tried the joe snyder thongs? i want to try but they look super tight

    • Hi Jason. Yes, I have a JS Rio thong and a Capri bikini that should just be considered a thong too. Been awhile since I’ve worn them. The weight of the fabric is more swimsuit like than underwear. It’s heavier than Daniel Alexander unless it has changed since I bought mine at least over 7 years ago. I don’t think they are tight at least for me. Form fitting I would say since they are swimsuit like fabric. I find them a bit warm, which is why I don’t wear them too often. I do like the fit of them. Hope that helps some.

    I like Prevail Sports’ North Star and Capricorn thongs/ they’re cut almost like g strings, smaller than conventional thongs, and the pouches hug the package very nicely the Capricorn has the adjustable front for less coverage/ I can get it to a tear drop shape

  4. EJ says:

    I hear ya BD- I’m always looking for the least coverage stuff. I got a few g strings from Aliexpress, they’re mesh, sheer and have 2 small metal rings that attach the very minimal coverage front to the string waistband. 3 things that set me apart from the rest of my strings

    I am very interested and also inspired by all of your experiences and would like to try my first pair of male thongs. Problem is I’m located in South Africa and only have Amazon available to me. As male Thongs are not available in physical stores. My question is.. Which thongs are best for first timers in terms of comfort and overall appeal. I still live at home so I would like it to look manly and solid. So for now no thin. Straps. Something with a solid waist band that would sit like my regular boxer brief waist bands. And it must sit in place. Lastly, please guide on size as well. I am a medium waist. Thanks in advance for the support and guidance.

    • I don’t really have any with a traditional type waistband. I know people like Obviously thongs, which I’ve seen on Amazon. They have different pouch types, which you may want to check out the brand’s website for descriptions on the pouches. Another brand I’ve heard mentioned a lot is Papi, which I’ve seen on Amazon too. For those brands I haven’t heard anything about sizing issues, so I’d guess a medium. Those are what come to mind from others I’ve talked to. Maybe others will have some suggestions. Have you looked for online underwear retailers that may ship to South Africa?

  6. EJ says:

    I’m not into traditional thongs unless the waistband is thin and the tail likewise.Amazon has boatloads of thongs to choose from, and I’m looking at Cosomall maybe next purchase they look minimal as far as thongs go, and they offer 5 for $9.99- don’t know how many kreuggerans that’d be lol. Careful on sizing on stuff from Asia, usually runs small. I just got few string bikinis from China- they’re a large I have a 32” waist and they fit very well. I got 4 for under $15, free shipping, as a lot of Asian stuff is cheap, but doesn’t mean crap, I got a few Asian g strings last year 1 of 3 I like

  7. EJ says:

    I’m looking into Closecret thongs not Cosomall oops

  8. Greg says:

    Bottom Drawer: I agree with you on your number one choice. I only have 18 thongs, but they are all Prevail Sport String Thongs. They are all solid colors in both underwear and swimwear. One of the good features of this thong is that they are single layer in the pouch, which supports great in either the “up” or “down” position. Whether I am in a natural state, or excited state, the pouch completely surrounds the package with no loose or baggy areas.

  9. EJ says:

    Definitely agree with ya on the front pouch- I like hangin down in them I’m used to slinky kinda loose g strings rather than traditional thongs, PS has nice thongs

  10. DK says:

    I would like to thank you for your reviews. I just ordered prevail sport string thong brief and am very much looking forward to their arrival.

    • thebottomdrawer says:

      I hope you like it. I know some do and some don’t. Some like it better than others. I’m partial towards the brand, since it is one I discovered first. Plus their styles remind me of what the bodybuilder’s wear. Right pricing for my budget too. Let me know your thoughts on them.

  11. DK says:

    I received them today. I am impressed. Great cut, support and very comfortable. I’m a fan.
