I only have one and am 14. I don't exactly think it's appropriate considering that they are supposes to be sexy and a 12 year old shouldn't be trying to be sexy. But if it's for your eyes only then i guess it's ok. But I'd talk to your mom about it cause it might make her uncomfortable.

No. You're 12. Be 12. Twelve year olds don't need thongs. Besides, they're uncomfortable.

I wanted to start wearing them when I was 15, my mom wouldn't let me.

I agree that 12 year olds shouldn't be wearing them, and I also agree that they're uncomfortable for some girls.

Personally it's your choice although I didn't know a lot of girls that started wearing thongs at your age and when I was wearing them, it's can be a bit uncomfortable at times .But now instead of thongs I wear boy shorts, I feel so much more comfortable in them and it's better.

I'm 18 in a few weeks and I don't own a thong and have never wore a thong before.

At one point I wanted too and my Mum wouldn't let me and now I just stick to what I know is comfortable and I am pretty happy with that.

I don't see any reason for a 12 year old to be wearing thongs.
I'm 18 and I don't.

To be blunt about it, unless you're planning on losing your virginity soon, which I highly advise against, don't wear thongs. You're not even a teenager yet. Just, enjoy your teen years and wait until you're older. But to answer your general question, I started wearing them when I was 17.

I tried them when I was about 14 and never wore one again after that day. Way too uncomfortable.

Re: Thongs? - July 23rd 2010, 02:26 PM

I started when I was around 16, and I bought one mostly as a joke with friends. Personally, I find that if I get the right size they aren't uncomfortable at all depending on the pants I'm wearing. But I think 12 might be a little too young.

The only girls I remember that might have worn them at 12 or 13 were the girls that turn out to be major sluts in high school. And I'm sure you aren't like that. Stay 12, wait until you're older.

But as for when? I think you should at least be in high school, and more 15/16 before you start. The other suggestion is that personally I waited until I knew when I would get my period. A thong is not really something you want to get caught off guard in.

Re: Thongs? - July 23rd 2010, 06:16 PM

Yes visible panty lines aren't nice but thongs aren't the only solution.
The few times I have wore things tight enough to worry about VPL I have bought no VPL knickers from Marks and Spencers. Some are thongs yes but they do full knickers that have no VPL some are really pretty too. They do work as well.

I have these

Re: Thongs? - July 23rd 2010, 06:55 PM

Personally, I have worn them since I was about 14. I wear them all the time because I don't like having any VPL at any time and I find them comfy. Lots of people think it's uncomfy having something stuck up your ass all day but I can't even feel it really, just like wearing normal pants. Also, I'm not a slut and haven't lost my virginity, just because you wear thongs doesn't mean you are either On the other hand though, I do think 12 is a tad young to be wearing them. It's up to you really, it's all about personal preference.

I'm 19 and I only own two, but I only wear them when I know me and my boyfriend are going to get busy. THey are uncomfortable. Nice silky pants which match the bra you're wearing will make you feel sexy if that's what you're aiming to do. If you're just wanting to be like your friends you can always lie and say you wear thongs sometimes. They wont know unless you show each other ... :S

I started around 14 when I started modeling.
And even then it was only for when I was doing photoshoots/interviews etc.
Didn't start wearing them full time until I was about 16/17

I'm 19 and I still haven't worn any thongs. It's just not my thing. I don't think at 12 that you should be wearing such a 'sexy' piece of clothing. Just stick to other underwear. Why grow up too fast?

I own some thongs. You can buy certain kinds of underwear that don't show a panty line.

That and boy shorts are sexier than thongs. So double win :P


Seriously though, don't worry about thongs. Wear something comfortable and don't worry about being sexy or anything like that. It's not really that important, especially so young.

I hate thongs and find them really uncomfortable! But if you want to wear them, go ahead.

I'm 16 and I have some thongs. I hardly ever wear them though. I started wearing them like 2 years ago I guess. But I only wear them when what I'm wearing shows panty lines.
They can cause problems with bacteria and aren't the most comfortable things
I think styles like boy shorts look better anyways

If you want to wear them, try them. But don't do it simply because your friends are--they'll never know either way. If you don't like them, just switch back to something more comfortable. Try different kinds of underwear and see what you like best.

Personally, I don't wear thongs because I feel that they're uncomfortable and unsexy--what's the point of wearing underwear at all? I don't like the idea of my butt hanging out when I'm trying to be sexy.

Hey! Im 13 and Im starting to wear a thong. It is for my eyes only. It makes me feel beautiful. I have no clue why but it does. If you think you want to go buy one, do it! You only live once! But you know that you are beautiful no matter what size you are, how tall or short you are, or how you dress. As long as you are being your self you are beautiful. Live your life.

I was quite young when I started wearing thongs because we wore them for dancing shows and exams so you couldn't see our underwear under our costumes/leotards. I don't think there's anything wrong with wearing a thong if it's what YOU want to do. I just see them as a type of underwear *shrug*

It depends. Do you just want to have one because you just like them? If so then I don't see anything really wrong with that. If you want one to look sexy for someone then I think it's wrong.

I bought a few thongs when I was 17 just to see what they were like. I don't like them at all, they're really uncomfortable imo.

If your only wearing them for yourself, and your the only one whose going to be seeing it, I don't see a problem with it. Do what makes you feel comfortable.

I'd make sure that you keep it to yourself however; I just remember how middle school works and if someone started rumors about it, it could bring you a lot of unwanted/abusive attention. (I'm sure you already knew that, but still)

I only own one thong and it's because I got it as a gag gift from a friend (she thought it was hysterical I'd never worn a thong, so she got me this horrid hot pink and lime green one with "PEACE" written on the front ). Anywayssss. I never wear it, I just have it for a laugh. I don't think it's comfortable to have a piece of cloth up your bum and I have no motivation to get used to such a thing. I loveeee boyshort underwear and things that offer a decent amount of coverage. I just think they're way comfier.

Re: Thongs? - July 28th 2010, 05:31 AM

i've tried wearing one... but it was a no go for me;
just felt weird...
but one thing that really swayed me decision away from thongs was..
PE.
you're going to be in a locker room full of other girls;
and i would hate to have my butt showing when i took
off my pants to change into my PE shorts.

anyways;
it's your choice. you're the one wearing the underwear. & its your comfort.
if you feel comfortable wearing them... then i dont see why you shouldn't wear them.
but also keep in mind... about your period.
if you only wear thongs.. you cant wear pads.. so you'll have to wear tampons...

Re: Thongs? - July 28th 2010, 01:56 PM

It's OK for you to wear 'em, but like everyone said...it's what you are comfortable in. I was put off by the fact that a lot of my jeans are low rise and hang on my hips, and sitting/bending down meant my thong was very much visible :/
And where I'm from, people associated thongs with being a bit of a bicycle

I don't like wearing them myself, for the above reason and the fact that they're so uncomfy! But my boyfriend loves them and buys me them so...I end up wearing them :/
