I used to wear them often, but then, somehow my knicker shelf became full of cutsie knickers from hipsters to boybriefs. Ahhh... right. It is when I said it was ok for toddlers to pick out my knickers to send to me.
I was reading an article from a gynecologist a little while ago, where she was saying thongs are one of the worst kind of knickers a woman could wear. Because of the fecal particulate attaching itself to the material and sliding around, women who frequently wear thongs are more likely to suffer from yeast infections and UTI's. I'll have to try to find the article to share.
