How to Choose a Thong in the UK ― Buying Guide

Perhaps you've never given buying underwear that much thought, or maybe you've already spent far too long trying to decide on which pair to pick? Either way, we're here to share with you a few of our top tips for finding the right thong online!

Make Sure That It's Actually a Thong You're After

The word 'thong' is often used colloquially to refer to any form of skimpy underwear that passes between your bum cheeks. Thongs and G-strings may seem similar, but they are actually two distinct styles of undergarment. So before you buy the wrong one, it's important to know the difference between the two.

A Thong Offers More Coverage While Avoiding a VPL

A Thong Offers More Coverage While Avoiding a VPL

Thongs are a style of underwear with a half-inch to one-inch strip of fabric at the back. They are designed to be as minimal as possible in order to be discreetly worn underneath garments where a pair of full briefs would be too visible.


Of course, thongs do have a particular allure and there are a plethora of designs intended purely for fashion, or for the bedroom. And not to forget, some women just like the feeling of freedom that comes from less fabric around their nether regions.

A G-String Feels Like Wearing Nothing at All

A G-String Feels Like Wearing Nothing at All

G-strings offer a lot less coverage than a thong. These pants have a V-shaped panel of fabric at the front with thin elastic straps, instead of full sides and back. These are the closest to 'going commando' you're going to get, while still maintaining some modesty.


In regards to practical wear, a G-string can be a good choice for wearing under especially tight and fitted clothing, such as leggings or a bodycon dress. That said, your comfort level may vary. As you can imagine, the string at the back has a tendency to move around, which has the potential to quickly become irritating.

Choose the Right Fabric to Let Your Bits Breathe

Choose the Right Fabric to Let Your Bits Breathe

This should go without saying, but it's important to maintain proper hygiene down-under. Fabrics that disrupt the delicate eco-system down there can result in some nasty bacterial and yeast infections, so if you're buying a pair for daily wear you'll want to make sure to pick a fabric that's breathable.


Cotton thongs will be the most breathable and come in a range of different knits for comfort and practicality. However, they do tend to absorb sweat. So if you're planning to wear your thong while doing exercise, on a hot day or in a sweaty nightclub, you may want to choose one made from nylon as this fabric will wick away moisture from the body.


Modal is a great choice for daily wear as it provides the same comfort as cotton, is colour fast and won't shrink in the wash. That being said, you don't need to avoid synthetics such as polyester, polyamide and viscose altogether. If you're only planning on only wearing them for a couple of hours, these fabrics can replicate the appearance of silk or lace for some very attractive designs that are more durable and cost-effective.

Pick a Thong That Fits

Pick a Thong That Fits

Buy a thong that's too tight and it'll be cutting you in half, but get one that's too big and you risk it falling down to your ankles on the dance floor. If these sound like scenarios you'd rather avoid, make sure you select the right size.


In general, when buying a thong, the same sizing rules apply as when picking your regular underwear. Although, if you would prefer a little more comfort, you may wish to go a size up. 


Even if you know your usual fit, it's never a bad idea to take a look at the sizing chart. Measurements sometimes vary depending on the manufacturer, so you could find the thong you receive runs a tad smaller than expected if you aren't careful. 

See What Colours Are Available

See What Colours Are Available

Many styles are available in multiple colourways. The colour you pick will largely come down to your personal preference. However, there are a few things you might want to take into consideration.


Think about the clothing you're planning to wear it under. Neutral colours and those that match closely to your skin tone will be less likely to show through what you're wearing. A neon pink thong might seem like a fun option, but do you really want it peeking through your yoga pants every time you go into downward dog?


Your colour choices should also be partially influenced by how often you plan to wear it. Patterns and darker colours are likely going to hold up better than whites, light greys or pastel shades, and will be less likely to fade or discolour in the wash.

    When it's cold outside, but not quite cold enough to wear a heavy winter jacket, you need something that is going to keep your core warm but isn't going to make you overheat. Gilets, also known as bodywarmers, are the perfect solution to this issue. The armless design allows for more movement and offers just the right amount of warmth, which is why they are so popular for a long list of sporting pursuits from cycling to hiking to equestrian. But there is no reason that a gilet only has to be for sports – it can be a fashion statement, equally as stylish in the city as in the country. With choices of fur, fleece and down puffers, lots of which are incredibly lightweight, you'll be able to find a gilet that is easy to wear and just right for you. To help you out, we've explored ASOS, Amazon and more and reviewed products by reliable brands like Barbour and Trespass.
