If you love bodycon dresses, skinny jeans, and leggings, you know that when it comes to underwear, the struggle is REAL.

Often it’s a sacrifice between a visible panty line-free butt and your sanity. Because no matter what, thongs are just never... ever... comfortable.

Right?

Apparently not. For months now, I’ve been hearing talk about a thong that’s affordable, invisible under all your clothes, and NOT agonizing to wear.

Could this possibly be real, I wondered? Have my days of thong-suffering finally come to an end? There was only one way to find out. I put my ass on the line — literally — and tested the most comfortable thong in the world.

This is the Hanky Panky original rise thong: the One Ring of butt-friendly underwear.

According to both the internet and the people in my life — some of whom are noted thong fanatics — this Hanky Panky thong ($20, Nordstrom) is the greatest. It vanishes under clothing, no matter what you’re wearing, but most importantly, it’s meant to be insanely comfortable. It doesn’t cut into your hips, it doesn’t vanish into your labia, and perhaps most important, it never makes you feel like you’re experiencing a super-wedgie.

I had my doubts. Lace thongs seem like a recipe for a butt disaster in my book — especially lace thongs with a between-the-cheeks string that’s this wide.

But hey, I’m down to try anything once. So I put the world’s most comfortable thong to the test.

The first thing I was struck by is the sizing. Supposedly, this thong is one-size-fits-all.

I rolled my eyes at that a little — but no more. This is legit the stretchiest underwear I have *ever* seen.

I am not sure the size range that this thong would comfortably fit — but I have friends who wear a size 16, and swear that it's comfortable.

When I put the Hanky Panky thong on, I was immediately impressed at how comfortable it was. I had exactly none of the problems that I usually have with small underwear.

The wide lace sides weren’t digging into my hips. The butt-string wasn’t making me want to cry from discomfort. I felt… happy? While wearing a thong? Could this be right?

I wore the black pair for a full day under my black jeans — and I was honestly shocked.

As you can see, I have zero panty lines under my stretchy (and therefore line-prone) skinny jeans. Which is already pretty good! My ideal pants state is either not wearing any at all, or jeans so tight you can see my soul — and up until now, I always thought that underwear that kinda hurt but looked good was my only option.

Not so. In fact, after I put this thong on, I didn’t think about it at all for the rest of the day. Raise your hand if that’s ever happened to you with lace between your butt cheeks.

Exactly. It never happens. Which is why this is so amazing.

I sat in this thong. I ran errands in this thong. I walked around, stretched, climbed up on a desk to get a giant banana piñata off a high shelf (don’t ask) in this thong. I lived my damn life in this thong, and I felt fucking spectacular doing it.

The next day, I put another (clean) black thong to the test at the gym — which is where I ran into my only issues.

First, I sweat a lot during my workouts. The Hanky Panky thongs are not built to wick perspiration away from skin, so by the end of my gym visit, my bits felt unusually sweaty. Comfortable, but sweaty. So if you’re, say, training for a marathon, these are probably not great undies to wear.

Second, I *did* have some visible panty line when I wore this thong under my leggings — illustrated here with helpful dots.

While it’s not my favorite thing in the world, the line was minor enough that it wasn’t a huge deal. And anyway, this thong doesn’t promise to be invisible, just comfortable. Which it remained, BTW, even after an hour of running.

Finally, I put the beige thong to the ultimate vanishing test — stretchy white jeans.

I’m wearing shade Chai — this thong also comes in shades Taupe and Cappuccino for deeper complected skin tones.

Under white pants, this thong totally vanished — and it remained flawlessly comfortable for another full damn day.

Not a line to be seen, not a super-wedgie to be had.

My only issue was that the sides of the beige thong seemed to roll up a little more on me than the black version, causing a small amount of hip discomfort.

Ah, the curse of the “one size fits most” underwear — stretchy enough to fit many asses, but tends to roll up on you. Oh well, I’d honestly take this over digging-into-my-hips-like-you’re-looking-for-coal any day of the week.

Overall, I am shocked and impressed at how genuinely comfortable the Hanky Panky thongs truly are. I went in a skeptic, but I am now a believer — this may truly be the world’s most comfortable thong.

Hanky Panky, your thongs have officially won me over. My peach emoji life will never be the same.
