Difference Between Thong and G-string

Thong vs G-string

Thongs and G-strings are popular undergarments of women. The basic purpose of clothes is to cover our bodies but there are certain garments, or rather undergarments that we wear to cover our genitals that are made to make us look more attractive and sexy. Two such types of undergarments are thongs and G-strings. Though both look attractive and are worn mainly by women, there is clear distinction between the two that is visible to all.

Thong is a skimpy swim wear that women wear when out on the beaches. This is a piece of an undergarment which is used to cover the genitals. It has a wider back meant to cover the buttocks of a woman while a G-string is literally a string in T or Y shape that has nothing to cover the butts. G-string has just a triangular piece of cloth (normally an inch in size to cover the genital area in front while leaving entire buttocks open. On the other hand, a thong is made up of a sturdy piece of cloth and also has wider, stronger elastic bands.

It would be better to consider G-string as a type of thong with lesser cloth used to cover the genitals. While both a thong and a G-string look similar from front, it is their backs that reveal the difference. Whereas a thong has a patch of cloth at the back, a G-string has nothing to cover the butts. Apart from this difference, there is little to choose between the two.

As far as use is concerned, thongs are very popular beachwear and also used to support the genitals over your one piece suit in aerobics classes. G-strings, though more popular as nightwear to attract partner, is these days popular among women in the age group 20-40 as they like to feel good and sexy in their low waist jeans.
