Learn About Underwear.
Thong / 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.
