G-strings also popular as gee-strings, refers to a small piece of clothing that covers or holds the crotch area and passes between the buttocks and are attached with the help of a thin band around the hips. They are made of a variety of materials ranging from leather, plastic, cotton, nylon, satin and silk. They are mostly used as a swimwear or underwear by both men and women. This particular piece of clothing is chiefly worn by foreign dancers.
People often use G-string synonymously for the thong, however, there is a technical difference between the two, both being diverse pieces of clothing. Some people believe the letter ‘g’ in G-string stands for groin. However, the actual origin of this term is still obscure. In earlier times, gee string was a particular string that was capable of holding the loincloth of Native Americans.
Wearing a G-string eliminates the need of wearing a panty and also imparts a no-line look. They are made with extreme concern about the material’s durability and quality. They are often paired up with garters and bustier. In the present market, G-strings are in heavy demand and are considered as one of the most preferred intimate apparel.
