I didn’t even know that cocksox made thongs with a waistband. I don’t even actually know if I knew that this was a thong when I bought it. I think I thought it was a pair of their traditional briefs/bikinis when I saw the waistband. Can’t complain though, you never can wearing a cocksox thong. One of the most comfortable thongs on the market, they’re super comfortable and even with a waistband, super easy to wear. They’ve got a nice pouch on them…not too large and not too tight, but just right. These are a nice shade of light mint green, which is probably why I was drawn to them in an effort to expand the color palette in my drawers.
