Blue thong with clasps by Coquette - review by Incendiaire

Add resource

Left me feeling blue.

Overall I'm not very impressed by this piece. It doesn't fit that well and it doesn't look that great; it mostly hangs loosely around the body and makes you wonder why you're even wearing it.
-Attractive colour
-Soft material
-Strong stitching
-Poorly fitting
-Flimsy construction
-Not very flattering
-Fiddly clasps.

extremely useful review
The Blue Thong with Clasps is a gentleman's thong made from a blend of 71% polyester, 24% nylon, and 5% spandex.

The construction of the thong is generally very good, with solid secure stitching and no loose threads to be found. The materials used in the thong, however, make it an exceedingly flimsy garment. The fabric in the front pouch is incredibly thin, to the point that you're afraid of snagging it with a fingernail in case it falls apart like a pair of tights, and if you hold it up to a light you can see straight through it. The elastic used in the straps is so weak that the thong can barely hold itself up unfortunately. It's the sort of piece that you could only ever wear in the bedroom, no matter how daring you were feeling, as it's just not strong enough for everyday use.

The thong is generally quite comfortable to wear as the fabric does feel incredibly soft against the skin, and the band of material which sits between the buttocks is 1 3/4" wide, so it doesn't feel like getting a wedgie from a piece of floss. The only exception to this is the label in the back which sticks between the cleft of the buttocks and feels quite scratchy.

The fit of the thong isn't that great, but it doesn't seem to be down to an issue of size but more the materials and construction. The pouch at the front is a nice size to accommodate everything, with neither an excess nor deficit of material. The problem is that the weight of the genitals in the pouch pulls the entire thong down, and the weak elastic in the straps is powerless to prevent this, rendering any attempts at adjustment futile. The underwear offers no support at all, and merely clings to the body while gravity determines the placement of all appendages. Because the pouch gets pulled down it sits quite low across the pubic bone and reveals a lot of pubic hair. Similarly at the back the underwear exhibits the results of it being pulled down, with a little butt-cleavage poking out if you're not careful. If you happen to become aroused whilst wearing the underwear then the whole situation only becomes worse, and you're liable to find the front of the thong being pulled down even lower.

The silhouette of the thong isn't really the most flattering thing, but it can be improved if you allow the pouch to fall where it may, and then lower the straps around the waist in accordance. The pouch really does nothing to lift or shape the genitals, so don't expect to see an impressive bulge from the side. From the rear I have to say that the thong doesn't do a great deal to frame the buttocks, whatever degree of a backside you may have to speak of.

As the name implies the thong does indeed have clasps, but not the sort of clasps that one might imagine. I was envisaging poppers, the quick release style that allow a garment to be whipped off rapidly during a striptease, but that isn't the case. On each side of the pouch is a fiddly little plastic clasp, similar to one which might be found at the back of a bikini top. To undo it one first has to grab onto both sides with either hand, then bend one piece by 90 degrees until it clicks, and finally lift one half of the clasp up vertically to fully unhook it. This then must be repeated on the other side. In less than half the time it takes to do that someone would only need to tug at the loose elastic and the underwear would fall down, achieving the same end.

The thong looks different to how it does in the product photo as the entire garment is in actuality blue. None of the edging, nor the straps, are black as shown, rather they are made from the same material as the rest of the piece.

The care instructions state that the underwear is to be hand-washed only, but they make no mention of whether it should be a hot wash or a cold wash. Similarly there is no mention of whether the underwear can be tumble-dried.

The underwear came packaged in nothing more than a small polythene bag, which I was a little disappointed by, especially as less expensive pieces from brands such as Male Power come inside a nice presentation box.
