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 know! That's one of the things I also noticed about them was no uncomfortable ride up wedgie :-)

I used to work at Frederick's of Hollywood and they were selling them in the 90's. I've been wearing them since about 1999. Once you get used to them, they're not uncomfortable. You need to make sure you get ones that fit. If they're too tight they will hurt your butt crack. And many are meant to ride on the hip, not above the hip... so if you're used to traditional panties where the top elastic comes up above your hip, you need to get used to having it sit lower.

I had trouble with traditional panties bunching up and getting 5 inches of fabric in my crack anyway, so with thongs at least it's only 1/2 inch of fabric in there.
