There are certain brands (Joe Snynder is one of them) that either fulfil or exceed my expectations. Pikante is not typically a brand that I buy, since their designs (at least the ones that I have seen -- feel free to enlighten me) are not very minimal. The pouches are usually much bigger than I would prefer, and the thong back is usually more "generous" (i.e., has more material). However, I knew that before I bought the PIK 8062, so it wouldn't be fair of me to rate it solely on that basis. So for variety's sake, I decided to stray from the norm of minimality, and try something a little different. To be honest, the color scheme is really what drew my attention to this thong. It indeed is unique the way the colors appeal vibrantly to the eye. Upon actually wearing it, I found that I probably could have sized down to a small (I bought the medium). It is comfortable, the material feels great, and the pouch feels and fits better than I expected. The thong back is indeed generous, but still has a sexy look to it. I will probably order this thong again in small in the near future. Five stars for eye-popping colors and a comfortable fit!
