There are two types of tummy control thongs, the most common being the high waisted thongs. These are very effective at smoothing out your muffin top, back fat and the piece of fat that pops out from under your bra.
They often provide medium compression and added tummy control panels to keep everything right where it should be, out of sight and out of mind. Excellent choice to wear with high-rise pants, skirts or tight fitting dresses.
The second type of tummy control thong is a low waisted thong, helping to slim your belly but without the extra fabric around your waist. They are ideal to wear with lower-rise ensembles or outfits that require showing off your belly.
There is another type of tummy control thong shapewear and that is a thong bodysuit. They are fantastic as it slims tummy and waist. Nice factor here is the invisibleness of the thong.
A side point to note: Good advice to note is that there is only so much oomph in the tiny, control thong can control, so make sure you get the right size for you. Size is the key for the best results.
Just a reminder: look for a good, quality cotton gusset. This is important for comfort and hygiene reasons. (Let me assure you-in the long run, you will be thankful you did).
5 Simple Underwear Rules Every Women Should Follow
No matter what type of underwear you wear, make sure you follow these simple rules for a healthy vagina.
Tight fitting underwear can limit the airflow, especially when worn for long periods of time. Look for shapewear that has a crotch made from cotton for added breathability. Synthetic fabrics tend to hold onto excess moisture, which can lead to skin irritation.
- Use a hypoallergenic detergent
Your skin down under is extra sensitive; so only use a hypoallergenic or skin-friendly detergent to wash your underwear. Look for detergents that are perfume and dye free and designed for sensitive skin.
Never use bleach on your panties, as it breaks down the fibers and the chemical reaction with elastic can cause a severe allergic reaction.
- Switch them up
For obvious reasons, you can’t wear the same pair of panties day in and day out. Plus, if you have just done a vigorous workout or it’s a hot sweaty afternoon, change your panties. Excess moisture can lead to bacterial and yeast growth, causing an infection.
- Go commando
Baring it all is actually very good for your lady bits. Just like it is healthy to occasionally go makeup free, going commando can be beneficial. It is safest to go undie free at bedtime, just pull on a pair of comfy pajamas and off to bed.
- Check for stains
Sounds gross? Don’t be, your discharge can tell you a lot about what is going on down under and if things are working properly.
Whether you are wearing tummy control thong or another type of panty, make sure that they feel comfortable on your body and make you feel good about yourself. Plus, make sure to practice good sanitary underwear habits!
