From the iconic whale tail Degrassi episode to Cisco’s classic anthem, thongs have long reigned supreme in fashion and pop culture. So what better way to end the summer than with an all out thong-a-thon? This long weekend, ELLE celebrates the best, the worst and the most memorable thongs—on the red carpet, on the beach, and beyond.

“Comfortable thong” may seem like an oxymoron, but the editors at ELLE.com swear by these six picks. Shop our favorites that are so comfy you’ll forget you’re wearing them, ahead.

1

Victoria’s Secret No Show High-waist Thong

“Business in the front and a party in the back, this thong combines everything I want from my under, a high rise waist that sucks me in and a no show back. Bonus points for the seamless fit which means no visible panty lines.”—Nikki Ogunnaike, Style Director

Commando Classic Thong

“This thong is in the kit of every working stylist (brand-new pairs, of course) and therefore used in photo shoots nationwide. If it’s good enough for supermodels, then I suppose it’s good enough for me. You can wear it with the sheerest of white cotton dresses without that ominous underwear shadow, hiding any and all panty lines (which, now that I think about it, is kind of weird to shame). It makes you feel like you’re free as a bird down there, but without the very real discomfort of—cue genius marketing—actually going commando.” —Justine Carreon, Associate Market Editor

Gap Stretch Cotton Thong

“I don’t like to think too hard when I’m getting dressed, and these basic thongs from GapBody make my life so simple. They’re comfortable, easy to wash, and I can wear them for every occasion, whether it’s under yoga pants for a workout class or with a body-con dress. I’m also a fan of the lace variety for those days when I want something a little extra.” —Madison Feller, Staff Writer

Cosabella Never Say Never Cutie

“I’ve been swearing by these thongs since college. And while simpler cotton, non-lacy styles feel cooler today (see: the resurgence of the CK branded cotton undies), these are just too comfortable to let go of.” —Leah Chernikoff, Editorial Director

On Gossamer Cotton Mesh Hip-G Thong

“These guys are made of the lightest, softest mesh and don’t feel fussy or overly girly. They never roll or bunch the way thicker, lace band styles do, meaning they work under anything.” —Leah Melby, Senior Branded Content Editor

Hanky Panky Low Rise Thong

“If I try to buy cheap lace thongs they get holes in them within one or two washes. Hanky Panky’s hold up for months, plus hit at the exact spot to snugly hold in any love handles I may or may not be developing.” — Jessica Roy, Deputy Editor
