IF you thought G-strings were racy then you really haven’t seen anything yet – the C-string has landed and nobody knows what to make of it.
The barely-there briefs look more like a headband than anything else, and are designed to tuck between a woman’s cheeks whilst just about protecting her modesty at the front.
One of the C-string’s advantages is that they can be easily customised, coming in an array of different styles, materials and colours.
Wearers can also bend the wire to improve the C-string’s fit, and there’s even a male version – which comes with a handy pouch for the wearer to store themselves in.
Whilst C-strings have been around for a while now, they are apparently proving popular with sunbathers, as brazen Brits opt to leave their boring old granny panties behind and rock the racy underwear instead.
But, unsurprisingly, it’s not the women wearing them who are all that keen on the eye-catching design.
It turns out that men have been buying C-strings for the women in their lives, who aren’t as keen on the uncomfortable undies as their boyfriends and husbands seem to be.
The bendy briefs, which can be bought on sites such as Amazon for as little as £1.50, have been flying off the shelves, but it’s fair to say that reviews for C-string garments have been fairly mixed.
Whilst a few reviewers claimed they are “surprisingly comfy”, most wearers complained that the style isn’t particularly practical or fun to wear.
One scathing forum post reads: “It doesn’t stay in place. Can’t see wearing this for more than 2 minutes. Don’t waste your money … this product is worthless.”
However, a chuffed husband had a different experience, saying: “My wife didn’t like it very much – but I loved it!”
