The Thong – The Only Thing That Touches Your Beach Body

The thong is one of the hottest articles of clothing that you can wear on a beach or anywhere else imaginable. Weaving a thong most likely means that the wearer is not only physically beautiful and also very confident with his or her body. Both men and women nowdays wear thongs although traditionally the thong is used by women to flaunt their forms.

These slim and sexy pieces of clothing are descended from one of the earliest forms of human clothing-the loincloth. And there are in fact many varieties of this wonder-wear around:

Traditional Thong- This kind of thong is certainly the most common and consist of a strip of fabric in varying widths on the rear of the garment connecting the front pouch to the waistband.

G-string-This style is made up of a string of fabric connecting the pouch and the waistband in the rear. It is also called the Rio thong.

V-string- This style is very similar to the g-string, it connects with a single string along the rear that separates into two strings just at or before the waistband or into a small triangle of fabric just above the buttocks.

Dance Belt- This is the thong that's used as an equivalent to the supporter for male athletes, most specifically in ballet. It's job is to protect and support the man in athletic activities without being seen through clothing like leotards.

Cheeky- This style covers a little more area but exposes the bottom part of the buttocks. Some function as bikini bottoms while the others use them as underwear.

It's clear that the thong has reached such meteoric proportions in popular culture. In almost every beach that you go to there are bound to be people in thongs. Getting one can really make you look sexy.
