Review: Kiniki Apollo Thong

Kiniki Apollo ThongFor me I find it hard to go wrong with Kiniki’s bikinis and thongs. The Apollo is another good choice from them. It’s a traditional cut thong. I’m going agree with their description of it as being a classic thong that is great for everyday wear. I’m finding it performs well and is comfortable throughout the day.

At first look the thong appears to be cotton, but it is made of a Supplex® Lycra blend. Here’s what I’ve found out about it. It has the benefits of nylon, but engineered to feel like cotton. The benefits of it is breathability, moisture wicking properties, odor resistant, great stretch and shape retention, faster drying than cotton, and easy care. The fabric is marketed for performance wear, yoga wear, dance and gymnastic clothing, along with underwear and basically any clothing. Like I said I find the thong to be comfortable against the skin and even the tail that measures in at about 2” wide. That’s wider than most of the thong tails I have.

The pouch of the thong is a center seamed contour pouch, which is full frontal coverage. I’m giving the support a decent for everyday wear. I feel they may be border line for activities that would involve running. Though I guess some movement would be okay. I don’t think you’ll bounce around the whole time in them. The Apollo thong sides measure at about 1 3/4”. With the width of the tail, you typically are reminded you are wearing a thong.

You can hand or wash wash the thong, but says do not tumble dry. I find it to be well made like all of Kiniki’s underwear and swimwear I have ordered. I wouldn’t mind if it would have narrower sides and more of a moderate pouch. I’m seeing it as a good option for a comfortable lounging thong for me.

My Rating Overview

    I cannot comment about this thong, but I agree about the fabric comfort based on the Apollo G-string. I don’t think Kiniki has any other style in this fabric. Whatever the cut, I’d recommend trying one of the Apollo range.

    Not sure if this may have been asked before but it would be great if there were pics of it being modelled to get a better idea how it looks on.

      Yes, modeling has been requested. I have no plans of adding photos of me modeling the pairs I review. I did add a link to the thong on Kiniki’s website, so you can at least get to the photos of the model in them without searching their site yourself.

    Used Kiniki when lived in UK, some nice products. Annoying that they don’t show rear pics on website though.

      Hi Craig. I was a regular customer with Kiniki for many,many years before I started buying elsewhere online. They do still show rear pics on their website including g-strings and thongs,so maybe you were unlucky that the particular item(s) you looked at were not shown from all angles.
      Do you mind me asking whereabouts in the UK you lived?

    • The Bottom Drawer says:

      It is strange they don’t have a rear shot of the Apollo thong when they do of the Apollo g-string on their site. I think it use to be rare to see a rear thong or g-string shot on kiniki’s website. Or if there was one it was a smaller image placed on the main image. You’d think they’d do multiple angles for all their pairs now a days.

    Lived in the midlands, moved to Ausrralia now for the sun.

      Lucky you! Plenty more opportunities to get a suntan. Would you say Australia is more accepting of skimpy swimwear than the UK?

  5. Craig says:

    OMG no way. Shopping for thong underwear in WA is almost no existant. About the only place to shop for them is in sex shops. Aussie guys are MEN and dont wear things like thongs ! They need to evolve, thongs are so much better, comfortable and comfortable in the hot climate.

    • DonS says:

      I agree, same in QLD. Only way now is by on-line shopping. Not real progress here by the department stores, even specialist menswear shops are useless.

      A warm, humid night proves the value of a g-string as sleepwear. There are still quite a few houses here that are not air-conditioned.
