Hanky Panky Lace Thong Knock Off

If you'd rather save some of your hard-earned cash for other necessities, try these Joe Boxer lace thongs, just $4.99 through 6/13 at These sassy underthings come highly recommended by reader Nikki (read her entertaining testimonial here). Thanks, Nikki!

Would you splurge on the designer brand or save with Kmart?

I get all my underwear at target. They have lace underwear that is just as pretty as Victoria Secret and is about 3 bucks a pair. You can get like 5 for 15 bucks! Their boyshorts are also really adorable and super comfortable, for about 4 bucks a pair.

good to know! i also find the old navy thongs to be just as nice as hanky panky and they're super comfortable (no cutting into your side fat!).

i dont know if I could wear anything other than hanky pankys, but I would definitely try to see if there are great ones for a better price than 18 bucks a pop

Vickie's definitely has a nice variety that are very similar to them.

I work at Victoria's Secret and they have a one-size fits all lace thong. I know it sounds crazy, but they are stretchy and ladies love them. They also come in a ton of fun colors and can be purchased for 3 for $30.

Surprised that this sexy red thong is from Joe Boxer. I have a pair of boxers from Joe Boxer and they have piggy faces and hearts all over it. :-P

I love love love hanky panky thongs, but if I cannot find any on sale I go for a very similar style at JCPenneys. They are really great, the quality of the lace isn't quite the same, but for half the price you won't notice.

Awww...I just got home from vaca and saw this.... :-) YAY! Glad you found my story amusing! ;-)

I saw the lacey ones at Old Navy and I wanted to try those...maybe I'll pick up a few pairs next time I'm in there...

did anybody who wears hanky pankys try these? I personally find the look of the hanky panky thongs fairly average but I've found I'll avoid wearing anything else at all costs because the fit is so much more comfortable -- I feel as if I'm wearing full underwear with them on. I'd love to hear if these compare because hanky panky is just so pricey.
