Review: Candyman Animal Print G-String (99170)

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.

My Rating Overview (with my alterations)

Support Rating: 3.0
Overall Comfort: 5.0

    Must say, when I say Candy Man – I thought must be one of the members who wrote a review.

    Then I saw G-string, what’s got into TBD haha?

    However, happy you tried- this Candy Man item in particular looks really racy and I would buy it.

    G-strings does take some time to get used to but the right fit is also very comfortable and feels airy during a long day. Making it ideal for under jeans at work for instance.

    As a thong addict, I must say this is a nice looking g-string. If you had to cut a total of six inches off the waist, what was the original size–extra huge? (Ha!) In past years I have occasionally bought “one size fits all” thongs, only to find out they were way too big. They usually made their way to the trash right away.

      Seemed pretty close to that size. I did take out a little more than necessary, so now the waist is a little snugger than my normal size. But I wanted to try and gain a bit more support.

    That’s woeful to be so far out from the correct size. So I won’t risk trying them.

    Your statement that you modified them to fit does raise an idea – if you can sow sufficiently well to modify them, why not take a style that you really like and make a few pairs yourself. Unless of course buying small quantities of fabric makes this not worth it. Also assumes retail fabric shops stock suitable underwear fabrics.

    • The Bottom Drawer says:

      I did the mods by hand sewing. If I had a sewing machine I would consider trying to make a pair again. Years ago I tried to hand sew a couple pairs. They performed as underwear, but a very slow process and not as nice of a finish as one with practice could achieve with a sewing machine. I think a fabric store would have fabric that would be good for underwear for sure.

      • DonS says:

        In hindsight, you probably get enough useable pairs from these reviews that you would not have to make your own. However, for anyone who knows how to sow the temptation must be there.

    Shame about the large waistband. Looks like the kind of g-string that would make a bold statement if you were to wear it as swimwear on a beach,but as a self confessed g-string addict,I much prefer my strings to be mostly the one colour, with just a few notable exceptions.
