Review: Jovanadesign’s Mini Thong
This was another acquisition from twitter friend ChiThonger. When I saw the printed, it spoke to me and was one I wanted to have. Now when it arrived I got a bit of a surprise. I guess the print distracted me and I didn’t quite realize the cut of it other than it was a thong. I didn’t know the style was called mini thong when I decided on it. Let me tell you it fits the name!
A quick look at the specifications before I talk about what I think of them. The mini thong has a center seamed contour pouch. The sides measure in at about 5/8″ while the tail measures approximately 7/8″. These are made out of a nylon and lycra blend. It is recommended to hand wash and hang them to dry. For the price of a pair you’d probably want to do that to make them last. At the very least hang them to dry. The thong is made in the United Kingdom.
As I inferred above this is a very tiny cut and not one I would typically choose. I normally like a little wider of a pouch cut. Now I do like to be able to mix things up, which this one does. Now my initial try on when I received the pair said I needed to do a tad more narrower with my manscaping down there. Probably could do some more, since some tucking is required to give a nice clean look still. Can you say narrow U shaped pouch? Then the thong is also a low rise design front and back. Mini thong equals mini pouch! If you are packing it then I don’t see how you’d fit in this one. I mean it does require me to adjust things to make sure everything is contained, especially the sack. However with the small pouch it gives the illusion you are packing it a bit. It brings things up and forward some giving you a little more bulge. The thong provides excellent support, so going to hold you pretty much doing anything.
The first time I wore the thong I only made it a few hours and then had to change. The tail got too uncomfortable. Guess I have trouble with the sweet spot with low cut thongs. The second wearing I did find the right adjustment for comfortable wearing. I could feel the tension, but it was comfortable most of the time. Sitting seems to be a downfall with me and the low rise. That is when they at times would start bothering me after a while.
The mini thong is from jovandesign, which is located somewhere in the UK. They make the items when ordered, which allows them to offer quite a few print options. Seems when this is the case you are going to pay a premium for them. The thong is well constructed and I really like the pattern and color of this one. It’s not the normal cut I would go for, but it will be nice to throw in for a change of pace. I do overall like the fit of the thong especially after finding the sweet spot for comfort for the tail. I however would not pay full price for a pair. I’m not sold on them being worth the price, but my budget range for a pair doesn’t go that high even if they are advertised as swimwear and made when ordered. However it is a fun pair and if you have the budget they are worth a try.
|Recommendation:||One thong up|
Pros: Great support, good selection of prints and colors
Cons: More expensive than a lot of other thongs, can feel tension from the tail
