Consider the advantages of wearing a thong as opposed to more traditional styles of male underwear. They don't leave visible underwear lines, don't "ride up" and don't take up much space when you have to travel.
Go with a name you trust. Well-known designers like Calvin Klein and Greg Parry now make thongs for men, from a variety of both natural and synthetic materials. For the beach, you should also remember that thong style swimsuits for men are also becoming more popular.
Spend some time investigating the various thong styles for men. O-ring, C-ring, G-string, ring thongs and zipper thongs are among the common designs. They feature various waistband thickness, skin coverage and cup styles.
Shop online. Via the Internet, you can access a world of options in thong prints, designs and fabrics with the added advantage of complete discretion and anonymity. However, it is highly recommended that you know your size rather than just take a guess when buying online--most men find they need a thong that's slightly bigger than regular underwear.
Get specialized attention by visiting a store that specializes in sexy underwear for both men and women. While it's generally true that thongs are more accessible to women, an increasing number of stores that feature racy items for both sexes are stocking a selection of thongs for men. Because male style thongs are a specialty item generally only available at select retailers, the in-store staff will have more precise knowledge as to what size thong you'll need to get.
Tips and warnings
- If you take your sun tanning seriously, a thong bathing suit is an excellent way to minimize visible tan lines.
- Start with one pair of thong underwear, rather than buying a bunch right off the bat. Stores don't generally allow customers to return or exchange undergarments, and you don't want to be stuck with a bunch of thongs that don't fit.
- Always run your new thong underwear though the wash before you wear it. Other men may have tried it on while it was sitting on the shelf in the store where you bought it.
