Boyshort or Thong? The Tale of Two Fashion Trends

Saturday, January 18th, 2014

In 2010, one of the most widely read women’s magazines, Cosmopolitan, pronounced that the “Thong” having been overtaken by the flirty “Boyshort”, was pretty much on its fashion deathbed.  Less than three years later, apparently recognizing actress/model Sofia Vergara’s swimsuit preferences,  that very same publication jubilantly announced that the “Thong is Totally Back!”

That, in a nutshell, is the crazy world of fashion trends.  Often driven by the fashion penchants of “A-List” celebrities and high-profile super models, it can be hard to keep up!

We know that our brides, and their grooms, love both looks.  The “Thong” is clearly that sexy panty that would make your great, great-grandmother faint but leaves your guy swooning at your feet!    The “Boyshort” is the newer, flirtier look that hugs your curves in all the right ways and temptingly leaves a bit more to the imagination!

Have a look at just a few of our top selling panties from our lingerie collection!  and…Tweet your vote!   “Boyshort or Thong?”

Evie Elliot lace ballet flats are soft, luxurious and embellished with a lace bow and rhinestone accent. The insoles are 100% leather and the shoes come in medium width with a vamp that hides “toe cleavage.” House of Elliot dedicates itself to finding the highest quality lace and products for their handmade wedding shoes. When you open the handmade keepsake box with your one-of-a-kind lace wedding shoes, you’ll be overjoyed with the exceptional quality and passion that goes into each pair.
