The undergarments or bathing suits worn by women in thongs most often serve multiple purposes. There is quite a variety for women to choose from, based upon what she may wish to accomplish. All options, with the exception of thongs, provide at least some amount of coverage of a woman’s backside. Bikinis, briefs, boyshorts, hipsters and other types of panties all provide some type of coverage of the behind, as opposed to thongs. Thongs are set apart by the fact that they provide no coverage whatsoever of this kind. The absence of this coverage is what defines a thong by nature. While they may be worn for several reasons, they are most often chosen for sex appeal or in the case of undergarments, the desire to eliminate panty lines, as opposed to simple functionality-related purposes, as found in other types of underwear.
When worn for sex appeal, thongs are generally considered highly sexy, especially when worn by attractive women. There is little to be left to the imagination, but just enough for a tease, since a thong, by definition, provides zero coverage of a woman’s behind. Those attracted to the female form tend to appreciate seeing a woman in a thong, as it exposes so much more than any other alternative, similar clothing options. Woman in thongs are highly desired in general by most societies. A woman may choose from a wide variety of fabrics, such as cotton or lace, all color varieties, and many different patterns. The options are generally endless, and although thongs are quite small, there are different styles that some women look sexier in than others. Some women prefer thongs that reach high on the waist, while others look best in thongs that rest at, or under the hips. Some people prefer to see a woman in thongs, while some women feel sexiest in a see-through thong. Personal preference to both the wearer and the observer is where relevance lies, as sexual attraction toward a woman in a thong is mostly subjective.
The elimination of panty lines is another benefit that women derive from wearing thong underwear. When wearing tight pants, shorts, skirts and dresses, some women prefer to have no panty lines showing, and therefore select a thong as their underwear of choice, as it provides the necessary functionality to be expected from undergarments, while still accomplishing discreteness when it pertains to a desired, or undesired look. This also relates back to sex appeal, as some people find panty lines to be very sexually attractive, while others find the absentness of panty lines to be just as much of a turn on. It often raises the question as to whether the woman is wearing any underwear at all. This illusion is also desirable to some women who find it an enjoyable and desirable type of tease. Many women look fantastic in thongs whether clothed or barely dressed, and the women that wear thongs usually feel sexier, and therefore act sexier, and more confident.
