Just wondering recently after trying thong underwear for the first time (after dd's assurances that they were very comfortable to wear) when did they first become mainstream popular for women to wear? I only remember them from about the mid 2000's when friends started wearing them, but I think they were popular before that? My sister told me she has been wearing them since 2002....Were they popular before this? Anyone remember what year they/ friends first wore thongs?

I am in my forties and I recall them from high school. My recollection is it was more of an item worn for sex appeal (and removed shortly after donning). I found a funny and interesting link that gives a history of the thong:

I personally do not find them comfortable. My 16 yo daughter will wear one, especially under her volleyball shorts to avoid any panty lines. She says they are comfortable, but her are not the "butt floss" variety and have a be more material back there. Overall, both of my daughters prefer boy cut undies.

No, to be honest it was scandalous and if wore one you were labeled a tramp. Old school

Ok thanks, when were you in high school? 80s/ 90s? Did many girls wear them in high school?
