Both the 1025 Sunny Swim Thong and 1023 Caribe Swim Thong are quite similar other than a few cosmetic details, thus I’ve decided to wrap them both into one review.
The first thing that caught my eye about these thongs are the design. They have a classic, simple design, but add some excitement through bold colors (in the case of the 1025 Sunny Thong Candy) or metal embellishments on one side (on the 1023 Caribe Swim Thong). Those minor details take these from blah to AHHHH!
Another great feature of this thong is the comfortable fabric. I find that some swim thongs can only be worn for a small amount of time before becoming uncomfortable, but that’s not the case with these. They are designed for all-day comfort and also designed as true swimwear as they are lined inside.
Where these miss the mark personally are in the areas of sizing. First, the pouch is just big enough for me to fit everything in comfortably, but a little extra roominess wouldn’t hurt. The bigger issue, and admittedly it’s a personal preference, is the size of the waistband and back. The waistband and back measure right around 2 inches which is about twice the size of most of my thong collection. The back leads down to a very thin string of less than a half inch. While this isn’t uncomfortable in any way, it will lead to quite a thick tanline if you’re planning on spending a day in the sun in these. If that’s the case, I’d suggest ordering multiple so you can maintain that tanline without always having to wear the same one over and over.
Overall, these thongs are nicely styled, comfortable, and a must have if you don’t mind a thicker tanline. Maybe this will be the summer that I go for a bolder tanline, because these thongs have definitely captured my attention.
