Feel how comfortable sexy can be with intimate apparel from Hanky Panky. This USA company is known for sensuous bras, panties and camisoles. The Hanky Panky thongs - the 4811 and the 4911 styles - are the collection's most popular item, constructed in Hanky Panky's signature stretch lace, and in a wide range of beautiful colors. Hanky Panky has an enormous celebrity following who like the comfort and sexy look of the line, and they purchase the thongs and G-strings in several colors, coordinated with bras and camisoles.
The original thong was designed back in 1986 by Gale Epstein, a co-owner and Hanky Panky's Creative Director. This thong had a cult-like following in New York City, where it was designed. But, then a big break came to the company in June of 2006 when the Wall Street Journal did a front-page story on their thong--anointing it the most comfortable thong on the market. This article catapulted this boutique manufacturer into the mainstream of lingerie companies. The company has seen cataclysmic growth and continues to expand its offering to keep up with demand.
Some of the new looks at Hanky Panky include color play where the trim is in a contrasting color from the body of the garment. And, Hanky Panky has now moved into prints, from the wild to the demure. In 2010 Hanky Panky launched a line called Hanky Panky After Midnight. This Hanky Panky sexy lingerie has more of an erotic edge with crotchless thongs, cheeky hipsters, fishnet nightwear and open cup bralettes. And all are made with the same quality that Hanky Panky is famous for.
Unique to the Hanky Panky brand is the fact that all their products are made in the USA. It would be so easy to take their manufacturing off-shore, but Hanky Panky's co-owners, Lida Orzeck and Gale Epstein are committed to the craftsmanship found in the USA. All Hanky Panky panties and thongs are constructed using the best construction methods available. Believe it or not, each thong consumes over 30 yards of thread. And, more thread means more stitches, and more stitches means the product is more durable and of higher quality. Additionally, being made in the USA saves time, reduces shipping costs, and thus fuel usage.
Sustainability is another theme with the Hanky Panky brand. They try to be as environmentally responsible as possible. To that end, their offices use 100% recycled paper for all their copiers and printers, their packaging is executed with 100% recycled board and paper, and the left-over fabric is all donated to arts and crafts groups.
