Hello Panty Lovers! Today's panty is a Private Luxuries brand (Mervyn's store brand) thong in off white/bone color, model number RN 79700. They are made of 100 percent polyester and are very silky and well made. These panties are a copy of a Frederick's of Hollywood panty (of which I also own a pair). Strangely, these copies are actually better made and have a silkier and softer fabric than the real ones. I'm not sure, perhaps someone else out there knows if they are both a copy of a Victoria's Secret panty? At any rate, these feature a very nice lace pattern framing the leg openings. I guess these fall under the flutter category although they are a little less fluttery than the usual panty of that style in that they seem to fit a bit tighter. They feature a cute little bow at the front of the waistband. These were some of my favorites back when they were new and I still like them a lot. These were bought way back in the mid or late 90's and are no longer available. The construction of them seems to be very good and the elastic is still in great condition.
After reading Panty Fiend's comment of the poor quality of FoH panties, I got to thinking about quality of various brands I have in my own collection. I have bought panties from the same company, which have vastly different quality in material and construction. I suspect that panty makers offer products to other companies or stores, who then just apply their names to those panties. I will say that I do own lots of Frederick's of Hollywood panties and many are of good quality. I really loved their satin string bikinis that they used to carry. I would have thought those would be a staple item as they seemed to be classic panties in a sexy material and cut. I for one would still be getting more of them if they still carried them. One company that I feel has a consistently high quality to their products is Victoria's Secret. They seem to have a great bunch of designers over there who are ahead of the curve and who pick wonderful colors and materials. The quality of the fabric always feels above average. They can be a bit pricey, but I think it's justified given the build quality.
