As underwear goes, the bikini is world-famous. Seen on every beach in the world, the bikini is a type of underwear you're not ashamed to be seen in. Bikinis normally have their waistband between the hip and the bellybutton. The bottom of this underwear type has a medium cut leg with reasonable coverage for the butt. Despite their reputation, bikinis are moderate in underwear terms with far more scandalous outfits available.
String bikinis for example, are a form of underwear that border on illegal in certain cases. You should be aware that certain countries have laws about what one can wear. If you are wearing underwear such as a string bikini deemed too flimsy to be worn in public, you could find yourself being fined. The string bikini's sides are made of a little piece of string which leaves little to the imagination. These should not be worn by women who are conscious of their figure. String bikinis made from microfiber can be worn underneath medium strength fabrics and remain invisible.
The thong is the piece of underwear that has really captured the imagination. The front of this underwear is triangle-shaped and offers little in the way of coverage. The rear of this underwear is little better with a T' or Y' shape revealing the majority of a woman's butt. The thongboy is an improvement in terms of coverage as it combines boy shorts with a thong for a comfortable yet sexy look. It is possible to get underwear of this nature in lace which should not be worn at the beach!
Hipsters are underwear that resembles a mesh of briefs and a bikini. These are low-rise and show the hips hence the name. These are a good choice for women who feel that boy shorts are too thick. Boy shorts are underwear that are something like hotpants. These are sexy but revealing at the same time. Lycra or any other material that stretches are the best fabrics for boy shorts underwear.
Low rise underwear are a particularly daring form of underwear. They come in different sizes which are measured from the horizontal seam on the underwear to the waistband. Underwear which measures less than 4.5 inches from these two points is considered extremely naughty with 9 inches more common.
