I LOVE Palm Springs! What does that have to do with this weeks post you may ask? This months Manthong Revolution is possible thanks to a visit to Palm Springs earlier this summer. While hanging out with a group of fabulous thongers, I came to learn about the thongs offered by Rough Trade Gear.
When I saw and heard about these thongs, I knew I had to make a trip to the store to check them out for myself. I'll admit that I had bypassed the store earlier in my vacation because I seemed to recall the store was mostly leather, jocks, harnesses, etc. I didn't imagine such vibrant thongs would also be among the items offered...and I was even MORE surprised to learn that they are the stores exclusive line! Once I spotted them on the wall, I knew I had to try them on. The colors I wanted were above my reach, but I never let that stop me. The friendly employee had a step stool nearby that I used in order to get the exact one I wanted. The lengths that I'll go to in order to get a good thong are amazing!
Ok, ok, let's talk about the thong! The Rough Trade Gear XXXplicit Lycra thong is awesome! It's a standard designed thong with a stretchy fabric. So stretchy in fact that I actually went down one size...that provided me a snug fit in the back with plenty of stretch in the front for my package. If you find yourself often buying one size up because you need extra room in front, you won't have to worry about it with this thong. The fabric is also nice and smooth and will feel great against your skin all day.
If you aren't near one of Rough Trade's locations in Palm Springs or LA, you can always order online. I found that there were more color options in-store than what is currently available online, though it's been a few months so they may have discontinued some colors. You also can't beat the price point of this thong. Sexy and comfortable for under twenty dollars! I already have my eye on the XXXplicit Liquid Thong for an upcoming purchase. Rough Trade Gear also offers their lycra undies in bikini, trunk, and jock styles. A lot of great options to try!
If you're looking for a new brand to try and have not yet checked out Rough Trade Gear, you owe it to yourself to give them a try. Quality undies at a reasonable price...you can't go wrong with that. Happy Shopping!
