Thongs and G Strings-Ultimate Impact
There's a reason that sexy thongs get more popular by the day. Thongs are revered for their ability to eliminate the "VPL," or visible panty line.
Would you believe that sexy thongs actually have their roots in tribal clothing worn by the people of South Africa more than 75,000 years ago? It's true! The sexy thong is a relatively recent trend in lingerie, but it is, in fact, considered one of the oldest types of clothing created by humankind! Want another interesting tidbit? Our much-loved womens thong was, at that time, made for men.
Thongs and g-strings aren't just a style of panties. They're also two types of swimsuits. The thong and g-string bikini owe their popularity, in part, to the string bikini. The string bikini paved the way for the super sexy bikinis.
That were later to come. String bikinis are a skimpier, more revealing version of traditional bikinis. The thong bikini then came along and combined a string bikini top with a thong bottom. Swimsuits haven't been the same since!
Thongs and g-strings actually aren't one and the same. A g-string is a more risqué version of the womens thong. A g-string has considerably less material in the back. As the name suggests, it resembles a string. There are two variations of both the thong and the g-string: the T-string and the V-string. It just depends on which letter the piece of fabric in the back most looks like.
When it comes to sexy panties, does it really get any sexier than the thong? Many women, and many men, would say thongs and g-strings are tops in the world of sexy panties. They're a bit of a tease because they reveal a lot, but still leave quite a bit to the imagination.
Thongs and g-strings look great when paired with virtually every type of lingerie. Bustiers, chemises, camisoles, babydolls - they almost always come with a matching thong or g-string.
As we mentioned earlier, a sexy thong is also a functional undergarment. The dreaded VPL rears its ugly head when you wear briefs with a tight pair of pants or a snug-fitting skirt. Even if you prefer briefs for daily wear, no woman should be without a stockpile of thongs. Next to going panty-free, thongs are our only line of defense against the VPL enemy.
Also a lot of thongs are low-rise. Low-rise jeans continue to be all the rage. And they call for equally low-rise panties unless you want passers-by to chant, "I see London, I see France..."
Sexy thongs are very affordable. They can fit into any woman's lingerie budget. You can get a beautiful thong for around $5. There are also more high-end thongs, made from rich fabrics with intricate details. It's easy to find a thong or g-string that really suits your fancy. You can buy them in silk, satin, or even see-through fabrics. A popular style is the womens thong that resembles a lacy butterfly in the front.
Your lingerie collection isn't complete with a thong, actually, without several thongs. Buy some that are sizzling sexy and some that are cotton and comfy.
