Welcome to the Thongs section of the Underwear
Glossary. In this section, you can learn more about underwear.
Thongs : Viewed from the front, the thong typically resembles a
bikini bottom, but at the back the material is reduced to a minimum. The
back of the garment typically consists of a thin waistband and a thin
strip of material, designed to be worn between the buttocks, which
connects the middle of the waistband with the bottom front of the
garment. A thong is occasionally referenced as a T-back. Some people
will also use the term thong and g-string interchangeably. However, they
are actually two different styles of garment. For your reference, the
g-string typically has less fabric in the back. In summary, thongs
essentially look like most other panties from the front but have a thin
piece of fabric at the back that lies between the cheeks. In addition to
sex appeal, thong underwear also helps prevent panty lines.
