Hi there! It’s Kim – your friendly Bra Diva and Marketing Director – from Linda’s! You may know that Linda and our expert staff are “bra ladies”, but we are also extremely knowledgeable when it comes to underwear. From full coverage briefs to g-strings, we’ve seen (and worn) it all! So I was especially happy to pop into the Huffington Post office for a LIVE segment with hosts Caitlyn Becker and Nancy Redd for a discussion on: the thong! These sassy hosts hold nothing back, and the conversation covers health concerns, sex appeal, personal comfort, and favorite brands. I brought along my favorite underwear options for all women, including those from Hanky Panky, Simone Perele, Curvy Kate, Wacoal, Commando, and more! Whether you love thongs or not, this LIVE segment has something for everyone. Watch the segment below, then take our poll or leave a comment and let us know if thongs are a DO or a DON’T!
Looks like we all know who prefers what after that chat! How about you? Are you a thong wearer? Take the poll (answers are anonymous) or leave a comment below and let us know!

Here are a few of the featured items in this segment!
First up, the Hanky Panky low rise thong. Both Caitlyn and I swear by these ultra comfortable thongs. They’re so popular at the Linda’s stores, and packaged in a very cute “roll”. We keep them in a large glass container and they look like colorful candy! And trust me, customers (and Bra Divas!) gobble them up like candy – we just can’t get enough. In fact, I wore a light blue Hanky Panky under my wedding gown as my “something blue”. These “one size fits all” thongs have so much stretch that they really can fit a range of women. Be sure to check out the whole Hanky Panky line for their original rise thong (best for those who want a higher rise, or wear a larger size), their comfy lace boyshorts, and even a sexy crotchless style.
Next up, the ladies were fawning over this Simone Perele Amour boyshort. This gorgeous lace panty is actually a recurring “basic” for this French brand (leave it to the French to make something so sexy a basic!). I love the black and mauve colors and the super soft texture of this little number. Shop the whole Amour group, including bras and other underwear options.
For those that want coverage without the dreaded Visible Panty Line (aka VPL), nothing beats Commando. And I don’t mean going sans underwear, I mean the very popular brand of thongs and “girl shorts” from Commando. Fellow guest Mandy from XOJane.com agreed that Commando is a great brand! Try out the Comamando line for thongs, shorts, slips and fab accessories!
Notable mentions: The Simone Perele Invisi’bulles bottoms (which I wore under my reception dress!) are totally seam free, and these sexy little Curvy Kate Princess shorts fit UK sizes 8-22 (or US sizes XS-4XL!). The Wacoal Sensational Smooth Shape Briefs are heat sealed for no panty lines and have a band to control belly fat. So many to choose from!
Whether you’re a thong or brief kind of gal, Linda’s is the best place to get your underwear and bras (and some girl talk!).
