 Has any one bought thongs from a company called Jovana, selling on the  UK e-bay site, they look quite good but the sizeing seems a bit vauge, any feedback, most welcome

Sizing is very Euro, so they generally run quite a bit smaller than US sizes. US buyers should probably size up at least one size, or two.  Not a problem with the tie side thongs, just tie a bow on each side at the lenth you want.

Pouches on thongs tend to be on the cramped side. Probably a bit small for the average person's equipment.

Some of the fabrics are unusual and interesting, but quite a few of the fabrics are thin, transparent or mesh, so not suitable for public use.  Print colors are a bit strange but now and again they have a good one.

The ones with string waist bands often have simple bare elastic,  the ones with contrasting edging are defiantly edged in raw elastic. 
General impression is a lot of the suits are similar in construction to the stuff coming out of the far east: Trimmed by folding a bit of elastic over the edge, instead of wrapping the elastic in the edge of the fabric. Some of the ones described as swim thongs are quite a bit better. 

The better ones have propertly covered elastic, look for fabric colored side straps.

Shipping from the UK is quick.

Cost, relatively expensive, at least from the USA, by the time you add shipping costs and exchange charges from Paypal.  They may make more sense when paying in the UK with pounds.

General impression is a lot of the suits are similar in construction to the stuff coming out of the far east: Trimmed by folding a bit of elastic over the edge, instead of wrapping the elastic in the edge of the fabric. Some of the ones described as swim thongs are quite a bit better. 

Look for the 'ring thongs' or other 'swim thongs' with the small triangular rear.  He has the triangle in the rear down just right.  Stay clear of the thongs with a contrasting edging running around the suit becuase thoes ones are edged in raw elastic.

Hopefully they will inprove the color choices and print fabrics, and make more of the propper swim thongs.

I bought one of her swimstrings a year or two back and was delighted. Sizewise it was fine, small but not excessively 'micro'. It's unlined but not see-through and the triangle at the back fades into the gusset and waist strings perfectly. I've been wearing it to the beach here at Eastney by preference since, although that's not often with time and weather considerations. I haven't tried any of the underwear strings, but I might well go for one.

I have both underwear and swimwear from Jovana. Bright pink low, narrow thong and light blue K1 thong. Waistband is quite stretchy in both and the thong strap is just a fine string. K1 thong has a lot of room for the package, swim thong just barely covers it all and i have to struggle a bit to get everything in. I like the back triangle in K1, but in the swim thong i think it looks a bit silly because the small triangle rides too high. Material is very soft and nice.

 I purchased 8 thongs over the past 3 years.  Every one of them was made to perfection.  Nothing is of inferior quality. Most are daring, small, and provocative.  I would rate her quality products as a 10 on a scale of 10.  Reflecting back on posts from male members on this board that lamented that they wished WW make thongs/bikinis for men... Why not buy one off her eBay store?  She will customize it to your wished a little if no extra cost.  Her workmanship is exceptional.  I have a few 3D thongs that are a perfect fit. She will custom make anything you can provide photos of to guide her in her creations.  Gals too!  She is an expert tailor and can make a suit for much cheaper than WW can.  You need to instruct her and she will get it out to you and quickly.  Not enough good words for the top quality items she sells on her UK eBay store or what you special order from her.
The 4 thongs I quite recently purchased from her are the best items I have purchased from any swimwear manufacturer in a number of years.  She, Dore,and MuscleSkins are in the same league.
As for sizes:  I have a 31" waist (men's medium 'USA') and I order a medium fit and got that exact fit.  Not too small or undersized for the 'jewel bag.'  The cut and comfort are great.  I have had numerous Parr of Arizona (Nu-Parr) in past years but those were designed to "tuck a guy to the side or down."  Jovana's designs provide an adequate amount of room for 'all three players.'  I hope this info was helpful for those thinking of buying any of her creations.

 Jovana's Yellow Extremely Micro Mens String Medium was one of the hottest suits I have ever purchased.  Is provides great coverage yet makes a statement that even your parents would be proud of you wearing.  This style along with an assortment of Jovana 3D thongs will keep you up on top of your game.  Buy it, try it, great creative with/in it.  OS777

Jovana's swim thongs are excellent, she made me a one sided thong better than the sample I gave her (she even repaired the rather worn sample for me for free) needless to say 4 more followed!
They are called pau1 and in her ebay shop, she will make them in any fabric and colour. Watch out for the jp4d, my cross between the pau1 and her 4d thong. I have the first one and it is awesome. It got me 3 very positive comments in the park on Saturday (also now my avitar picture).  Never been one for a push out suit, but after trying her 3d + 4d thongs I'm converted!!! 
Her work is great, her prices are very good, her quality is excellent and she is very easy to deal with. I would recommend her to anyone take a look at the jp4d and pau1 in my profile.

 I'm a convert to Jovana's fine quality suits.  Well made, and as small as you dare to wear.  Quick to ship should you purchase one or more off of her eBay online store.  I can't say enough great things about her products and commitment to complete customer satisfaction.  She will modify the size of a suit should you alert her to iafter you win the eBay bid or make whatever you wish her to do.  Additionally she sends the finished order to you within a few days.  Not bad when you consider she makes them in London. She is the swimwear maker of present and future to keep your eyes on.  Maybe equal in quality to Tendenze?  That would put them at the top of my list (having purchased and or ordered suits for many years).

Hi folks,I have bought 3 right side`d slings from Jovana,and while they are impractical for swimming,great to pose on the beach.they do tend to ride off the right hip after about half hour though.I have alot of tattoo and the sling is great for showing them off.
     her products are fantastic and very good workmanship.

I have two (rarely worn) one sided suits, neither from Jovana.  One, from Muscleskins, has a protruding pouch and doesn't stay in place well at all.  The other, from Coachclass (who seems to have at least partly abandoned the business) is much better to wear on the beach.  The difference is that this one is NOT a protruding pouch, holding you, if not 12 o;clock, then maybe at 1:30.   Makes all the difference in the world keeping the suit in place.

I could not agree with you more OS777, I to am a total convert to her suits and work, the workwomanship is fantastic and her service second to none, so much so I now have 18 of her suits, (pau1's jp4d's 4d's and 3d's) every one is top quality and nothing is too much to ask. when I asked her to make what is now called the jp4d, a cross between her 4d and the one sided suit she made for me, it was ready the next day!! Jovana has also made my g/f Emma 4 slingshot suits, 2 single back string 2 double, 2 of which are covered elastic 2 just elastic (will try to get photos posted soon) and they also fit perfectlly and are top quality, again made within a few days of speaking to her and giving her an illustration, you don't find that with the bigger companies! Absolutely one to keep an eye on.
Gaysome, if you want to go swimming in a onesided suit try the jp4d, it works!
Leo40, pau1 is very similar to the coachclass, only far better quality, not a pouch style suit, just covers everything at the 10 o'clock position, great for tanning, the jp4d is a pouch suit, again great for tanning, you can however move around ALOT more in this one, even swim in it!

I would like to see someone make g-strings/thongs in fabrics that AREN'T floral, nor hologram, nor really bright "LOOK AT ME! LOOK AT ME!" colors.

-Who wants to wear ANYTHING floral? FLORAL? lol!!!

Also, i would like to see more g-strings with a front that adjusts (strap goes all the way through pouch, not sewn in). Back that adjusts is great too.

Superb fit?  As 'ball' suits, I suppose so, but the rest of you doesn't always fit in very well.  Interesting sets, glad you posted, will we see you on the beach?  Headed for the UK in June, though my thongs will be a bit more 'moderate'.

Yes they are a bit tiny and a bit difficult to keep modest in.   I thought after last years super slim PAU1 I couldn't get any smaller!! Then Jovana pulled the super micro thong out of the bag!!! WHAT A GREAT SUIT!!    I will be wearing them to tan in this summer, it could be the parks in London or the south coast,  it will only be if circumstances allow however. 
I look forward to a long hot sunny summer and some good company.

Just received a new item off this company called "Extreme Micro Narrow", they are not kiding on the description of this product as it is very skimpy !  But, it fits me perfectly.  Very well made indeed so it should last a number of years, the waistband is very narrow which will keep the tan lines down somewhat, but more importantly, I found it very comfortable to wear without the waistband being so tight it will irritate the wearer.  The pouch is very very slim and perhaps for a well endowed person, this maybe a problem, although I do know Jovana can customise products to the buyers specification, as I did ask a question about another product and they were only too willing to do this.  I will be ordering more items off this company as they have a vast arsenal of thongs, g-strings and slingshots etc to choose from, check them out on there new website (not the ebay site), I'm sure you will all find something that will inspire you to buy an item or two.

As you all probably know, to say I'm a HUGE Jovana fan would be and understatement!!!

She has made me MANY custom suits to my ideas and designs and every one of them has been great, some of my suits from her are now nearly 3 years old and fit perfectly!!! No mean feat for a tiny suit that is at full stretch for the entire time your wearing it. 

I've seen the new site but haven't ordered anything yet, but I will be very soon!!!!! Thanks for the heads up on that style, I'll give it a try!

Just received a Yellow Micro Brief, which has a narrow 4" back and a well shaped pouch. Sizing perfect at waist and pouch is small but stretches very well, so that you continually have that "trying to burst out" look. I asked Jovana if I could have the suit quickly as I was going on vacation and she came up trumps. Made and delivered in 3 days, now that is fantastic service! I will definitely purchase more suits from her as the styles are super and she deserves the business.

I can not sing Jovana's praises high enough. Her suits and service are first class.
I first ordered off her 2 years ago, It was a custom order, I asked her to make me a one sided suit, after a trial run, that came out perfectly, I ordered 4 more!  she now produces it as the PAU1  ( my profile picture) She gave me a 3D and a 4D suit to try, which was a wise move, coz I now have many of both of these styles as well. Really liking the 4D style pouch I asked her for another custom style, the 4D pouch but in a one sided style, again it came out perfectly, she now sells this also, as the JP4D.  The PAU1 is available in standard, slim and super slim,  and the  JP4D in standard and micro pouch sizesThe mini micro is another of her great suits, not to everyones tastes due to it's brevity, but a great show off suit.
I must have 40 odd of her suits, mainly in the one sided styles and wear little else these days. She also makes a lovely g-string for the girls. I don't know if she is still doing custom work but I had her make some wicked slingshot thongs for my ex GF. 
So yes I would highly recommend her and if your interested her suits, both mine and the ex's,  are in my photo-stream on flicker, same user name as here.

 I have ordered a number of Jovana 3D and 4D thongs and G-strings.  All at first quality and well fitting.  I have no complaints... absolutely no complaints about Jovanas handmade swimwear.  I will never say that about Joe Snyder!  For guys... The 3D is more of smaller packages.  I find the 4D better suited to myself.  I rate Jovana and Dore as equal in quality and are produced and sent to you as quickly is as possible.  No complaints ever about either Jovana or Dore!!!

 My report on jovana.  4D thong-excellent fit and looks great front or back.  Extra Micro Slide-pouch is too small.  Will wear it infrequntly.  Strapless Glove Cover-Mesh is a little tight and the solid samba yellow fits much better.  Will reserve these for the yard.  Over all I will buy more of the 4D in the future.  Look for fotos soon.
