Review: Candyman Animal Print G-String (99170)
I don’t review many g-strings, which my regular followers know. Main reason behind that is I like the look of a regular thong on my rear over a g-string. I feel they accentuate the butt more for me than the g-string. However this g-string grabbed my attention with the colorful animal print. Plus it has the waistband and tail in the same fabric as the pouch, which if I’m going for a g-string that is what I look for.
Let’s cover the stats before I go into my thoughts on this g-string from Candyman. The fabric is a 93% polyester and 7% elastan blend, so it has some stretch to it. It’s advertised as a microfiber. The waistband and tail measure in around 3/8” wide. The waistband has metal side hooks on both sides to allow for quick removal or for some teasing of your partner. The pouch is center seamed. They do recommend hand washing of the pair and hanging them to dry.
So what do I think of them? Initially the waistband was way too big in my normal size. I ended up altering them and taking probably close to six inches out of the waistband. Wasn’t too bad to do since the sides have the hooks. I cut the loop at the hooks, trimmed three inches of each side, then slid the hooks back on the waistband and sewed new loops. If I had read the reviews it was stated they ran big. Don’t know if sizing down would have been enough to get the right waist fit or not. Since I got the g-string on sale fairly cheap and alteration was simple I decided it wasn’t worth exchanging and went with altering them myself.
Getting the waistband to have a good fit made a great difference in this g-string. Before altering it, it was like just having fabric laying over the privates. Now it has some support and gives my boys acceptable cradling. I find it is comfortable for all day wear. I don’t have any issues with the metal side fasteners bothering me. Not a pair I would wear for something active, but acceptable for walking around doing errands. With my alterations I’m pretty happy with this Candyman g-string. My overall rating is going to be based on my alterations, since without them it would be the lowest score across the board.
