Searching for "lost" knicker style... do you have any suggestions?

I have been looking around High Street clothing stores for months, searching for a style of knickers called Tanga or Bikini (I think?). This style must have thin bands of elastic, across the thigh (not thick bands), which is the main difference to the usual design stocked everywhere it seems (sigh). The thin elastic is kinda cute & I would really like to find a retailer that stocks the style again. I prefer plain designs to prints, but that is less important...

If anyone knows the name of a store or retailer where I can get these, please let me know. Thanks :-)

Like these?

Thanks very much for the link. Those knickers are very close to my ideal, but the elastic bands still look a little wide, judging by the photographs.

If I can't find any different pairs with thinner bands, then yea I'll probably try the Freeman's multi pack, they aren't expensive & are plain white :-)

I will keep searching in the mean time... thanks again. Lorna

I wear these - from M and S. Will try and find them.

Ooh I used to love a tanga! Then I had children and got love handles.

The ones in the link are how I remember them!

I've looked through all their pants online and can't find them. So annoying - I only bought mine a few years ago. Thin elastic at the sides is no more than 3mm.

Yes, there is something a little "cute" about Tanga style... Kinda wonder why they are so difficult to find now??

Thanks for taking the time to search the M&S site.. I've been in the stores more than once looking too. I did read that M&S used to stock really nice Tanga style knickers. I've never actually seen them in store myself, but they do have a lot of other styles... thank you again. Lorna :-)

Bonprix have these

Thank you for the link. The knickers at Bonprix are very similar, but have two elastic side bands!! It is almost funny, how rare this style is!

I've never seen the Bonprix store before, so thanks for the information, I will look into it more... Lorna.

Opps, do they sell brain cells too?

Thank you very much for the link. Yes it seems Amazon do sell everything...maybe even brain cells? Lorna :-)
