These ruched thong panties also look like boyshorts on occasion, but that’s probably because Tommy Hilfiger knows what’s important is what’s in the rear of panties and what’s on the seam of the panties. What’s in the rear is a thong. What’s on the seams is ruching, a method of gathering fabric so it sort of looks as though your waistband is a set of nice curtains. That is not how Tommy Hilfiger would describe it (because they describe black and white polkadot panties as ‘Doo Wop Dop Twilight’.) They know no limits.
