When I finally received the item it either bent from shipping or bent from just being poor quality. It is very uncomfortable. The fabric is like almost like swimsuit material, very weird. It doesn't stay in place. Can't see wearing this for more than 2 minutes. Don't waste your money... this product is pointless.

This is a great product! This is especially helpful on those big drinking weekends! When I go out on Friday nights I put it in as a headband. That way, when I realize I lost my pants I can just whip it around!

Let me start by saying that I am a man and, as such, the contents of my undergarments are different than those for whom this product was designed. Sadly, I did not discover this until after purchasing and trying the C-String.
My wife and I were celebrating our 5th anniversary and I wanted to do something special to surprise her after dinner. I figured that we would have plenty of time that evening as my custom is to spend $1 per year that we've been together on each of our meals and that price point doesn't lend itself to multiple courses.
I quickly discovered the C-String while doing alphabetical research on "exciting underwear" and I immediately ordered one. Between its exciting novelty and presumed ease of removal (more on this later), I was sure that my wife would feel like the luckiest girl in the world and that this would translate to an exciting evening.
3-5 business days later, on our anniversary, I received a discrete brown box with a smile on the outside and giddily ran it upstairs to the bathroom where I could lock the door and be alone. Immediately, I wished that I had brought my computer with me as the product came without instructions and "installation" was not turning out to be intuitive. Without an online resource to guide me, I was forced to experiment.
As it happens, and completely by accident, my first attempt ended up being correct (in terms of orientation), but I didn't realize it because of the awkward result that the C-String had in parting the company of certain anatomical neighbors for which distance is a source of pain. Plus, the C-String kept slipping down in a way that, from the back, probably resembled a video tape being ejected from a VCR.
I tried reversing the garment. This solved the problem of parted anatomy in the front, but created a similar (and similarly painful) issue in the back. I found that squatting and bending forward alleviated some of the pain, but decided that maintaining this position for the entirety of our anniversary celebration, might clue my wife into the the surprise that lay in store for her, thus threatening the full force of its impact and the excitement that would be derived therefrom.
Next, I tried wearing donning the C-String in a horizontal, rather than vertical configuration - with the band going around my hip. Initially, I found no discomfort, but as I stood there admiring my ingenuity in the mirror, I realized that something wasn't right. Imagine a pirate with his eyepatch covering his ear instead of his eye and you'll have a pretty good idea of what was going wrong for me.
Again, my thoughts wandered to my computer but I could hear movement outside the door and knew that unless I wanted to risk discovery, I was on my own. I studied the C-String intently for a while and decided that the skinny end must go in back. The pain, I decided, I could handle, but how could I prevent it from slipping down? Then it hit me: Maybe the skinny bit at the back wasn't supposed to remain external (if you know what I mean).
What happened next is something that I won't share, but it involved deep questions about my level of love and commitment to my wife, a small container of Vaseline, some blood, and some tears. I decided to hide the C-String and come back to it after I had found a computer and an ice pack.
Sadly, I did not have time to consult my computer or experiment any further before the time came to depart for the restaurant. Not wanting to waste the C-String, I adjusted the frame ever-so-slightly and told my wife that it was a Google Glass that I was going to use to record our date. Happily, she believed me and was thrilled at the idea. Sadly, she shared my plans with the woman who took our order at the restaurant and we were immediately asked to leave.
On the plus side, I didn't have to explain why I didn't have any video of our evening. 2 Stars.

I tried it, thought it would be neat, but think it through, every time you have to do anything in the bathroom, you have to take it completely off and hold it in your hand or put in on the counter. That and I also think the wire is to bulky, I feel like everyone else can see the outline under my clothes.
