Best of The Fashion Police: The C-String


The C-String caused quite a stir when we first wrote about it, with some of you saying you wouldn't wear it as part of a Wear or Die, and others claiming that y'all didn't know what you were talking about, and that this was the best thing since… well, since the G-String, basically.

As you may or may not be able to tell from the image above, the C-String is like a g-string, with one important different: it has no straps at all, so when you slip it on, it just kind of, er, clings there. The Fashion Police wouldn't normally get involved with matters of lingerie, because we tend to think that what people wear under their clothes is up to them, but the suggestion that the C-String would make excellent swimwear was just a little bit much for us.

The C-String is still being sold at (Note: that link is NOT safe for work), and seems to have many, very vocal fans, so hey, maybe it really IS the greatest thing to hit the lingerie world after all. Or maybe not. What do you think?

    The only thing I think of when I see that thing is feminine products for thongs. It’s just weird.

    If I’m resorting to the C-string as underwear or swimwear, I think I’d rather just go without underwear or to a nude beach. Also could be an interesting asymetrical head band.

    I’d rather go nude than wear that, even under clothing…

    One day you wear it with a skirt, on that same day you end up running for the bus and accidentaly leaving your brand new c-string lying on the pavement. people would stare. and not in a good way.

    How the hell is that thing supposed to stay up? Just don’t wear underwear at all if that’s how you feel.

    Looks like an asymmetric headband. As underwear, it looks rigid and pointy.

    As for preventing VPL, haven’t these people heard of Jockey’s line-free undies? Work like a charm. No need for strings up your butt ever again.
