G String Bikini

G String Bikini

Most true thong lovers consider a g string bikini, or the closely related and equally revealing t-back style, to be the only way to go when it comes to sporting their favorite swimwear cut.  Thongs date back to ancient times when they had a more practical role in society in the form of loincloths to cover and protect the male genitalia.  Those crude first-versions of the thong obviously don’t fit with today’s modern thong image.  The modern thong has been around for a few decades now with the first ones started appearing on beaches around the world in the mid-1970s.  The style took a while to find its way to the United States and finally blazed onto the swimwear fashion scene in the 1990s.

A g string bikini is one of the smallest thong styles, along with the t-back variety seen pictured here.  Both are similar in design with only subtle difference between the two.  The t-back style refers to a thong with strings meeting in a “T” formation at the top of the backside.  A g string style thong is a small, triangular patch of fabric where the strings join in the back.  Both styles have low-rise fronts with skinny string sides that allow you to show off as much skin as possible while only covering what is necessary.  Both g string and t-back thongs look great with any style top, so find one that looks and feels good and you will be set up with the perfect thong bikini.

If you decide to take your g string bikini with you on vacation, be sure to check the local beach ordinances for thongs.  While thongs are widely accepted on beaches both worldwide and in the U.S., there are a few sprinkled in here and there that do not allow thongs.  Know before you go, and you can avoid any snafus that might otherwise ruin a perfectly good beach vacation.
