The history of pantyhose, as for stockings, is tied to that of changes in styles of women's hemlines. Before the 1920s, it was generally expected that women would cover their legs in public, including their ankles; and dress and skirt hemlines were generally to the ground. The main exceptions were in sports and entertainment. In the 1920s, fashionable hemlines for women began to rise, exposing the legs to just below the knees. Stockings also came into vogue to maintain leg coverage, as well as some level of warmth. The most popular stockings were sheer hosiery which were first made of silk or rayon (then known as "artificial silk"), and after 1940 of nylon, which had been invented by DuPont in 1938. During the 1940s and 1950s, stage and film producers would sew stockings to the briefs of their actresses and dancers, as testified to by singer-actress-dancer Ann Miller.[3][4] These garments were seen in popular motion pictures such as Daddy Long Legs.
The origin of the term G-string is obscure. It may simply stand for 'Gusset' as the G-String is in effect just a gusset on a string. Since the 19th century, the term geestring referred to the string which held the loincloth of American Indians[21] and later referred to the narrow loincloth itself. William Safire in his Ode on a G-String quoted the usage of the word G-string for loincloth by Harper's Magazine 15 years after Beadle's and suggested that the magazine confused the word with the musical term G string (i.e., the string for the G note). Safire also mentions the opinion of linguist Robert Hendrickson that "G" (or "gee") stands for groin, which was a taboo word at the time.[22]

Up until this time, there was little reason for women outside show business to wear "panty hose", as the longer hemlines allowed for the use of over-the-knee stockings secured with a garter belt. Nonetheless, during the 1960s, improved textile manufacturing processes made pantyhose increasingly more affordable, while man-made textiles such as spandex (or elastane) made them more comfortable and durable. The advent of the fashionable miniskirt, which exposed the legs to well above the knee, made pantyhose a necessity to many women. In 1970, U.S. sales of pantyhose exceeded stockings for the first time, and it has remained so ever since.[8] Pantyhose became a wardrobe staple throughout the 1970s and 1980s.

One type of thong is the G-string, the back of which consists only of a (typically elasticized) string.[2] The two terms G-string and thong are often used interchangeably; however, they can refer to distinct pieces of clothing. Thongs come in a variety of styles depending on the thickness, material or type of the rear portion of fabric and are available for both men and women throughout most of the world.

Lisa Buhler, founder of Lisa Says Gah, told us that she’s a big fan of Swiss lingerie brand Hanro for its “luxe fabrics and classic designs.” (The brand also came up when we talked to some cool and stylish women about their favorite bathrobes.) If the price of the Hanro bikini is a little steep, Buhler suggests Everlane’s underwear, which she says has a similar design to Hanro at a fraction of the price.
First, the lost star is only due to the thong part no being long/stretchy enough. This did an excellent of smoothing out my tummy and back beneath my bra. I am please with how comfortable it is; but it is still shapewear, so I know I'm wearing it. The silicone was easily adjustable and did a great job of staying in place. If you will be mostly doing one thing - sitting, walking, standing etc - then this is a great smoothing option. However, if you'll be switching positions a lot, then the thong may become uncomfortable. I wore this at work (mostly sitting) and on a Sunday afternoon nature walk (mostly walking) and was perfectly comfortable. Unfortunately, a date night that involved standing at a bar, sitting at dinner, then standing and sitting at a party was not so pleasant because the thong would ride up whenever I moved. It is a good option if you're looking for a midsection smoother without pantylines.

A kaupinam is a traditional thong worn in India, by some men as a loincloth or underclothing. It is made up of rectangular strip of cotton cloth which is used to cover the genitals with the help of the strings connected to the four ends of the cloth for binding it around the waist of the wearer. It is used by wrestlers in the game of Kushti or traditional Indian wrestling in the Akhara (wrestling ring) and also during practice sessions and training.
I’m 5’3” 145lbs and the O/S plus fit OK. It’s big but I hate tight thongs. I’m going to cut the back and just sew it back together to customize the fit. I just didn’t think the other size would fit. Unfortunately there were only 2 choices and I really like the accessibility of this style! I’d only buy again if I can’t find more size options in a similar style.

There is no age when you should start wearing thongs. Most girls start wearing thongs in middle school when their pants/dresses are tight and might show their panty lines. Keep in mind that thongs don't mean that you are a gross person or acting "grown up". Thongs can be worn put of necessity, but don't feel pressured to wear one just because others are.

Don’t forget to flaunt everything you’ve got under there with our sexy women’s lingerie. Turn up the heat in sultry teddies and women’s bras and underwear matching two-piece sets in bombshell red, sultry black and less-than-innocent white. Our women’s lingerie is for every occasion - with shapewear for women to give you a bit of extra confidence in that dress and women’s sleepwear sets that are made for cold-weather cuddling. 
When wearing a pair of sheer pantyhose, they should fit tightly against the skin, much like other types of lingerie. Manufacturers generally adhere to a sizing system of A, B, C, D, and Queen for sheer hose. When wearing opaque tights, those are sized like other types of bottoms, ranging from small to extra-large to plus sizes. Wearing a pair of these garments means choosing the right size to wear based on your height and your weight. If you are at the cusp of two sizes, you may feel more comfortable in your dress when wearing the larger of the two sizes.
Pantyhose generally have a standard construction: the top of the waist is a strong elastic; the part covering the hips and the buttocks (the panty area) is composed of a thicker material than for the legs. The gusset or crotch covering the vulva is a stronger material, sometimes made of porous cotton, but the legs of the pantyhose are made of the thinnest usable fabrics, and it has a consistent construction down to the wearer's toes. These can be reinforced to guard against wear and tear.
When we asked rapper Junglepussy about her pick, she told us she’s “very loyal” to Calvin Klein underwear. “Just ask my boo, he sees them every sleepover and probably assumes they sponsor me, but it’s my hard-earned dollars maintaining this luxury,” she says. “They give me a smooth finish under fitted clothing and their fabric keeps the coochie fresca. I have every color Calvin in these cuts.”

Adding hosiery to a lingerie outfit is one of the best ways to create a truly memorable look. The hosiery isn’t meant to cover you up; instead, it highlights some of your best features and enhances the subtly sexy curves of your legs. Even something as simple as leggings or leg warmers can really take your appearance to the next level. And you don’t have to hide these items away for use in the bedroom, either. One of the fun things about hosiery is that it’s a type of lingerie that you can also use for fashion purposes. Items like fishnet tights or thigh high stockings can be paired with dresses and skirts to add a fun detail to your ensemble. And should you decide to reveal more, your sexy hosiery will pair perfectly with your lingerie.

Three women we talked to named underwear from newly launched brand The KiT as their current favorite. Created by stylists Jamie Mizrahi and Simone Harouche — who, as the Cut notes, have plenty of experience working with undergarments that fit seamlessly beneath outfits — the brand offers bras, bodysuits, pasties, bandage tape, and eight kinds of underwear that come in neutral shades. Maisonette co-founder Sylvana Ward Durrett is one fan of the brand. “From the seamless briefs to the adhesive thongs, each style is like true magic where I don’t have to worry about underwear lines,” she says. “I also love the high-waisted styles that smooth everything out and often opt for these when I’m wearing a slim-fitting dress or skirt.” On the whole, Durrett says that underwear from The KiT is lightweight and has a barely-there feeling. Morgan Hutchinson, founder of clothing line BURU, says that she’s become a “fast fan” of the brand since its launch as well. She particularly likes The KiT’s seamless thongs. “The high-rise is awesome for mum-tum,” she says. And, as the Cut reports, the fact that the underwear is designed by stylists who have to pay attention to what shows and doesn’t show under a garment is a big plus. Nell Diamond, founder of Hill House Home, agrees, saying she loves that The KiT was created by stylists because it means she worries less about whether her underwear will show under a dress or if her bra is the wrong shape. “The KiT’s styles have really simplified things for me,” Diamond says. “Plus, their lightest shade is pale enough even for a ghost like me (my nickname in middle school was Casper.”)


C-string: As narrow as a G-string, but without the supporting "string" around the wearer's hips/panty line, leaving just a sideways C shaped piece between the legs. This is held in place firmly by a flexible internal frame. Since there is no material around the waist, the C-string completely eliminates the panty lines which thongs and other underwear create. C-strings are also designed for use as beachwear, which reduces the tan lines that would have been left by the side straps of even a G or V-String.[citation needed]
Lena Dunham told us that she loves “a slightly baggy, but fun underpant,” and called out these Joe Boxer string bikinis as ones that fit the bill. “Joe Boxer was cool and hip when I was 12, and now it’s a Kmart property. Leaving aside the ethical implications of that, I fucking love the underwear,” Dunham says. She told us she orders the bikinis in a large to get her preferred loose fit. “A medium might be more supportive of my butt, but this gives me a little tail,” she says. “A six-pack of three solids and three patterns for me is the perfect balance.”
Thong: Giving you the least amount of coverage, a thong has just a strip of fabric in the back to prevent panty lines from showing through clothes. According to Dr. Dweck, they're totally safe as long as they're not too tight. "The right thong with a cotton crotch and non-chafing 'G-string' that fits well is not a problem for those who prefer them," she advises.
Luisana Mendoza de Roccia, co-founder of Maisonette, calls the brand Negative Underwear her “no-fuss underwear solution.” She says all of the styles are sleek and lay smoothly on the body, and that she can feel confident that they’ll stay in place during the day. “For the daytime, I’ll go for the cotton briefs, and for evening affairs where I want to feel a bit more luxe, I’ll pull out the silky briefs,” de Roccia told us. “Plus they’re made by women for women, so you can’t go wrong.”
Another pair of high-waist briefs that fall closer to the Araks and Baserange spectrum of comfy-but-chic underwear comes to us from Adele Tetangco, co-founder of Garmentory, who says that she’s a fan of Botanica Workshop’s 100 percent organic, made in the USA pieces. “I prefer underwear that I can’t feel on my body. It has to just feel like an extension of my outfit,” she says. “The Astra high-waist briefs feel like you’re going commando. They’re so comfortable.”
In the 2000s, some people wore thongs with low-cut hipsters and deliberately exposed them over the top of their trousers, producing an effect popularly known as a whale tail. This led to many thong designs intended to be worn in this manner, which were adorned with jewels and motifs on the back. In the early-2000s, thongs made up 31% of the women's underwear market.[14] However, in the late-2000s, the exposure of a thong above one's trousers became less popular and the trend turned to the wearing of lower-riding thongs that hardly show above trousers, except when bending or twisting.

The origin of the term G-string is obscure. It may simply stand for 'Gusset' as the G-String is in effect just a gusset on a string. Since the 19th century, the term geestring referred to the string which held the loincloth of American Indians[21] and later referred to the narrow loincloth itself.

Safire also mentions the opinion of linguist Robert Hendrickson that "G" (or "gee") stands for groin, which was a taboo word at the time.[22]
Thongs were initially thought to be uncomfortable by the masses because when a woman went to put it on, she pulled it up as if she were putting on a brief. Thongs were designed to rest on the hips. So, naturally, women sensed the discomfort of the thong being too high in the crotch. However, most thong manufacturers have jumped on the band wagon and lengthened the rise of thongs. Eventually, most women came back, tried on a thong again, and found them more comfortable. Today, with low-rise pants on the market, thongs come in both high-rise and low-rise styles.
Model and actress Hari Nef told us that a nude, no-show panty is a must for shoots, where you never know what they’ll put you in. “If it’s a white sheer dress, and you’re in your Hello Kitty underwear, that’s not the look,” she says. Victoria’s Secret No Show “disappear underneath whatever you’re wearing,” according to Nef. “You can wear a body-con dress, and it’s fine. And it’s also not a thong, at least not the way we traditionally think of them. I hate those.”
