I am reviewing the JOK brand half thong. While this brand is a bit mysterious, you can find it by searching for it on ebay.
This is a rare, new breed of skimpy thong. It is a half thong, with only a strap on one side of the waist to hold it up. The strap curves around the backside and forms the thong back. I am wearing/reviewing a size medium in a bright red. The material seems to be a nice poly/spandex blend. It is really silky, slinky, and fun.
So, I have been seeing these half thongs all over the web since summer. Mostly, you see jokes and comments surrounding them. For me, I am an equal opportunity bulgester until I try it! We all know I like skimpy, so the half thong design with a one sided waist and strap actually peaked my interest.
As for the front, I like the overall cut and look. The material feels good on the bulge. However, I had problems with the pouch staying on. I have a lot of goods to keep in, and though the material is clingy and stretchy it did not seem to work. The top of the strapless side wanted to roll down, and everything just wanted to bust out. NOTE that in these pictures, I am actually wearing an enhancement ring. The only reason it appears to fit well is that I kinda have it tucked it in to the ring. This can actually be a good tip for making this work, but in my case it did not really help.
The back was actually comfortable and stayed in place well even with just the one side. What I didn’t like much was the bunchiness of the material on the sides. It seems as though there is too much material/too wide of a strap-though I realize this aids in the support of the strapless side of the pouch. I wished the side would be a skimpier string.
As a reminder of our rating system:
Flirting Material: It fits okay, great to wear out for a short amount of time.
Hook Up Material: The fit is much better, sits well and wears well but might not be comfortable for all day wear.
Dating Material: The fit is great, sits well, accentuates the positives and wears really well – suitable for all day wear.
Match Made in Heaven: You love the fit, you love the style, best undies you’ve worn in years and will be a part of your regular wear.
Based on the fitting and bunching issues, I would have to say these would be flirting material for some-just not me. I don’t see these as everyday wear. Now, I could imagine someone with a more round muscular backside might be able to work it better since it would pull and stretch the side strap better which would in turn support the pouch better. I still love the concept and could see it working well with a more formed and structured “shell” so to speak-almost if there was a flexible wire or something shaping it.
