The ‘Universally Flattering’ Gap Thongs Our Deals Writer Wears Are $5

“These thongs from Gap are what I believe to be peak underwear,” says our deals writer Leah Muncy, who is stocking up while they are currently on sale for just $5 apiece — almost two-thirds off — when you stack the codes CYBER and MORE at checkout. Reasons she swears by the thong include its “universally flattering V-waist,” high leg, dipped waistline, and organic-cotton material. At full price, she has been known to buy them in bulk — making the sale price a no-brainer for anyone looking to refresh their underwear drawer. (Gap charges a flat $5 shipping fee, which to us is another reason to add a couple to your cart.) Muncy suggests sizing up for an “extra-comfy (and high-rise) fit.” In addition to the blue shown, the thong is also on sale in black, white, gray, and pink. “I don’t think a better pair of underwear exists,” Muncy promises.
