Chicago-based custom lingerie company, Evlove Intimates, has created the World’s Largest Thong in celebration of their company debut.
Designed to kick-off their first runway fashion show and expose their undies to the public, the mother of all thongs measures 20 feet tall and 17 feet wide. Sewn from 36 yards of black lace fabric, the garment took two seamstresses five days to complete. The gargantuan lingerie will be unveiled November 18 at the beginning of Evlove’s fashion show.
The black lace fabric was donated by Malibu Textiles of New York and was large enough to cover a third of a football field. The custom pattern was created and mapped by Margaret Taft of Design Works in Vermont which apparently makes ‘calf cozies’ — blankets for cows (and I am trying hard to refrain from any cattle references regarding the giant thong!) The sewing was coordinated by Noman Rao in Illinois. Submission to Guinness Book of World’s Records is pending.
Jenny Dombroski, founder and president revealed the thinking beneath the creation. “Nothing says custom lingerie like a 20-foot black lace thong. Just think what we can do for a g-string.”
Tickets are $20 and will benefit SafetyForHer and P.A.V.E. (Promoting Awareness, Victim Empowerment). To make reservations visit evloveintimates.com’s news & events area.
