    Default Is the bottom falling out of the thong market?

    THE bottom could be falling out of the thong market, according to the latest figures.
    G-string sales are down by 28 per cent in the past two years.

    But boy shorts are now a big hit with the girls — sales have DOUBLED in 18 months.

    So why has it all gone wrong for the thong? We asked three experts, including today’s Page 3 girl Nicola T, what they think.

    WHERE pants are concerned, less is more.

    My job involves showing off my body and I want to make sure everything looks great when I’m in little more than a pair of pants.

    I feel much sexier in a thong and they suit my shape more than a big pair of pants.

    But I hate the way girls like Jodie Marsh wear thongs over the top of hipster trousers. I’d rather look like I’m not wearing any knickers.

    I stopped wearing thongs awhile ago. I'm too old for them these days, they don't look as good anymore and really, they're rarely comfortable. Also, every man I know hates them. I did a little poll once with a bunch of workmates and every single one of them thought thongs were gross...all they could think of was dingleberries getting caught in the string and that was a huge turnoff. Plus, they said they had rarely seen a woman who really looked good in one. And somehow, most thought regular string bikini underwear or similar were sexier. I think it's the old 'a woman in lingerie is sexier than a naked woman' thing.

    I wear thongs when wearing pants, and panties when wearing skirts. I like the looks of hot pants panties but I find them extremely uncomfortable.
    Here the guys usually prefer thongs. As I lack self-confidence about my butt I asked BF and he said it does look good on me, whew
    Thongs look bad on flat butts though

    I think thongs are super comfy if you wear the ones with the skinny strap instead of the thick one. I also wear thongs with pants and regular bikinis with skirts. My husband loves thongs on me, and I love not having any panty lines.

    I've never worn a thong. Not keen on having something up my ass all day.

    sometimes i just nix the undies instead of wearing a thong but sometimes i do wear them. it's too breezy wearing a skirt and a thong as far as i'm concerned lol. i like the ae boy-type undies the best for skirt/non tight pants.

    If I wear pants, the thong must be worn as well! Join me in my crusade to defeat VPL! VANQUISH VPL!

    I used to buy thongs all the time & now own TONS. I'm switching to buying more bikinis & boy shorts.

    Same here, Elise. I used to like them a lot when I was younger. Now I only wear them to avoid panty lines, and I truly don't find them as sexy as a cute bikini or boy short. I will wear them once in a while though, and I find a lower cut and slimmer floss more comfy.

    I hate thongs. I just stick to boy shorts or bikinis. So comfy.
    I'm tired of all this nonsense about beauty being only skin-deep.

    I wear thongs 99.9% of the time. The only time I don't is if I'm wearing a skirt, not sure why proper knickers (panties) just make me feel more secure. And when I'm having my period for obvious reasons.

    I love boy shorts, and bikinis too me they a lot more sexy, and its not as much of a pain in the ass..as a thong.
    Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won't either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. Horrible isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable.

    I personally don't care what looks sexy or not cause as soon as I'm home, the underwear comes off. I wear thongs strictly to eliminate VPL. My butt loves eating underwear for some reason so I can't wear anything with more material.
