UnderwearDude’s Recommendation: If you like thongs or are a fan of SUKREW you should check this out.
If you remember our Thong 101 series from last year(If you haven’t checked it out you really should, I’m very proud of what we did with it), you’d remember us remarking that some thongs might not really fit in just one category. The SUKREW Bubble Thong fits that bill. Structurally, it is similar to a g-string, except the waistband is wider and the strap is also not a string, though it does leave a similar effect. Another noticeable difference is that the waistband is connected to the back strap at a right angle rather than straight on most g-string like pairs, giving it a different, noticeably curved look most often seen in women’s thongs that I quite like. The color of the back strap matches the accents on the front, but only a small triangle at peeks out from behind continuing to give it a g-string/v-string-esque look even though it’s not. The waistband is a bit plain, with a mostly raised center, though it goes unnoticed except when looked at closely. It does seem kinda plain next to the rest of the pair to me.
The pouch is also different from the main SUKREW thong, and SUKREW states that the pouch of the Bubble Thong ” is more lifted and curved than our classic design, offering great support without restriction, and a rounded bulge that compliments the shape of the rear.” From wear experience, I would certainly say it does push you less down than the other style pouch but still feels like a SUKREW pouch. In my personal opinion, I find this less deep pouch better than the original and far prefer it.
If you like SUKREW’s normal thong or want something a little bit skimpier than that, the Bubble Thong is a great choice. It’s a nice balance between skimpiness and structure, with some twists to bring it some real charm and uniqueness. I wore this on my birthday on Sunday and was hoping to try it with a lot of things. Sadly, mother nature had other plans, and I spent most of my day inside. Still, I found it to be fine when scraping snow off of my car and spending a few hours getting up and sitting down at a card game tournament. The part where the back strap connects to the pouch becomes noticeable at times, though not uncomfortable, and this does not happen often. The pair was a size small, which is usually for me, and I had no issues in that regard.
Note that the version of the Bubble Thong that I tried was the Full, not the U, which does not have a pouch. Instead, the U leaves you..well.. exposed. I believe there will be a review of the U version of this pair coming up as well. Price wise, this pair is decent, though I do find it odd that the Bubble Thong is the same price as SUKREW’s normal thong for a good bit less material, though it is still a fine price. Having to pay shipping from Europe is also a downside, but I’d say if this pair interests you, it’s worth it.
