BodyAware Italian Tanga Review
I’ve been wanting to order from BodyAware again for quite some time, so finally placed an order for a couple pairs during their annual sale. This is one of the pairs I picked and I went with this one for the skimpy back, which seems to be skimpier than the one the model was photographed in. Plus I liked the contrast of the black waistband with the orange fabric. Now this bikini falls into two categories that typically turns me off of a pair. It has an uncovered elastic waistband and it is sheer. Now I thought it was less sheer than it really is, so I was fine with it when I ordered. But the fabric hides nothing at all, so a little disappointed in that aspect of it. Now the bikini has a narrow waistband without their name blazing on it, so that is why I let that slide too.
This bikini is definitely in the half back category or maybe smaller. It does narrow quite a bit as the back goes down to attach to the pouch. It reminds me some of the Itsy that Victoria’s Secret offers. Now the surprise with this tiny back is it seems to stay in place pretty well with lounging around and doing some walking. Now with that said it does kind of feel like a wedgie waiting to happen, which if you don’t like the feeling then you probably want to pass on these. When I first wore them I checked them several times throughout the day to see if I had a wedgie from them and never really did. Even when I slept in them, they seemed to hold their ground. They may have moved slightly now and then, but never turned into a full blown wedgie. I think the verge of a wedgie feeling brings some sex appeal to them, because it reminds you that you have some sexy underwear on.
Now the pouch is a narrow v-shape with a flat centered seam. For how thin the fabric is, the pouch is pretty supportive. The bikini is made out of a 90% polyamide and 10% spandex and is made in the USA. The pair I purchased has 1/2″ black elastic waistband that does have the BodyAware name on it in black, so not a blazing advertisement. The elastic in the orange fabric is flat and clear and blends in well and adds no bulk, but still has the cling to hold and keep everything in place. They say they can be machined washed and dry, but I hang them to dry.
Now if the fabric was solid and not sheer, I’d give this tanga two thongs up. I’m still giving it one thong up, because I really do like the skimpy cut especially with the back staying in place and the sex appeal it has. Plus my wife seems to like semi-sheer/sheer fabrics. I love that it lets you know you are wearing some sexy undies.
