Joe Boxer Thong Review
To my surprise I found this thong at Kmart probably 10 years or more ago and based on their website they still carry them. They’re about $10 for a package of 4 thongs. It’s an excellent low cost standard thong that is a great fit. It has a centered seamed front pouch with two layers of 100% Cotton fabric (Note: Kmart’s website say they are 60% Cotton and 40% Polyester, but mine are 100% Cotton by the tag). They have the Joe Boxer name on the left hip. It offers excellent support and could be worn for active play. I normally wouldn’t, since I’d rather wear underwear that is less absorbent when I’m going to be breaking a sweat. The thong has 1 1/4″ sides and the tail is about 1″ wide. You do seem to notice you are wearing a thong most of the time, so you may want to be use to thongs before trying this one. There are better beginner thongs out there, but if you are on a budget then you probably would be alright trying this one. I machine wash and dry them and they’re still holding up.
Update 5/15/16 I haven’t worn a pair of these in a long time, so that is what I did today. I still think these are pretty good for the budget price. A bit warm in the pouch with the double layered fabric. Also the pouch isn’t real roomy, but keeps everything nice and snug for me. Can’t really complain about them much other than the warmth. They felt great on all day. I might just have to pull them out of the drawer more often.
|Recommendation:||Two thongs up*|
*I knocked a point off for tail comfort, since you do notice you have a thong on and it could be bothersome to a new thong wearer. Overall I find it comfortable, so I just knocked a half point off. The two thongs up is because it is a solid thong for the price. Yes, there are better options out there, but you’ll be hard pressed to find them with such a budget price.
