We set up near and parallel to Lifeguard stand 8. I wore a super cheeky bikini and went topless, and my husband wore a tiny thong. Some people would describe our swimsuits as g-strings. The air temp was around 90, and the water temp was 58 according to the lifeguard. During the course of the day, we walked all the way south to the river and all the way north to the jetty.
Nomenclature[ edit ] The origin of the word thong in the English language is from Old English thwong, a flexible leather cord. Another common name is tanga or sometimes string tanga , especially in the German Tanga. A frequent metaphor, especially in Brazil, is dental floss; in Brazil a thong is called fio dental Portuguese for dental floss ; in English, the term "Butt floss" is sometimes used. Shorts means "briefs" and "bandi" means "with a string".
Men's Underwear For some reason wearing a thong created somewhat of an exhibitionist of me. I envied that courage. I put on my blue Joe Snyder thong, one that doubles as both underwear and swimwear. Over that I put on a pair of gym shorts, which felt rather fantastic to wear over a thong might I add, and a light colored summery tank top.
I wore a g-string swimsuit, and my husband wore a thong swimsuit. I had verified with the police chief ahead of time that thongs and topless are legal. However, we saw only three other topless women and only a few people wearing thong swimsuits. We walked almost the entire length of the beach, observing probably a thousand people each day roughly half female. On the first day we saw one topless woman a nanny taking care of two little kids ; on the second day we saw two topless women, actually teenage girls, with their boyfriends.
