Summer may be drawing to a close and fall may be creeping ever closer, but it sure hasn’t felt that way here in Seattle recently. We have been having some great bikini weather and this scrunch back bottom has been one of our hottest selling styles this summer and comes in 12 different colors (also comes in tie-side).
The term thong refers to the amount of rear coverage offered by the swimsuit bottom, teddy, panty, etc. A Thong Back bikini has a coverage area more than a T-Back bottom, but less than a Brazil bottom.
The Thong is a garment generally worn as either underwear or as a swimsuit in many industrialized societies around the world. It may also be worn for traditional ceremonies or competitions such as sumo wrestling. The thong continues to be worn as everyday wear, as it has for often hundreds or thousands of years, mostly by men, in many indigenous societies, particularly in Africa, South America, and Asia.
Viewed from the front, the thong typically resembles a bikini bottom, but at the back the material is reduced to a minimum. Thongs are almost always designed to cover the genitals, pubic hair, anus, and perineum, and leave part or most of the buttocks uncovered. The back of the garment typically consists of a thin waistband and a thin strip of material, designed to be worn between the buttocks, that connects the middle of the waistband with the bottom front of the garment. It is also used as a descriptive term in other types of garment, such as a bodysuit, bodystocking, leotard or onepiece swimsuit in the context, “thong backed.”
One type of thong is the G-string, the back of which consists only of a fabric string. This type of thong bikini bottom is also called a T-back because of the way the strings intersect in back to form a “T”. The 2-piece bikini set in this format is sometimes referred to as a string bikini. The two terms G-string and thong are often used interchangeably; however, they can refer to distinct pieces of clothing. Thongs come in a variety of styles depending on the thickness, material, or type of the rear portion of fabric and are available for both men and women throughout most of the world.

FantasiaWear has a wonderful assortment of Stars and Strips bikini, 4th of July costumes, USA swimwear and American flag bikinis. But how did the United States of America come to have the current configuration of stars and bars that we now call “Old Glory”?
At the time of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776, the United States had no official national flag. The Grand Union Flag has historically been referred to as the “First National Flag”; although it has never had any official status, it was used early in the American Revolutionary War by George Washington and formed the basis for the design of the first official U.S. flag. It closely resembles the British East India Company flag of the same era that was used from 1707, and an argument dating to Sir Charles Fawcett in 1937 holds that the Company flag indeed inspired the design, in addition to Buckminster Fuller’s mention of it in his book, Critical Path. However, the Company flag could have from 9 to 13 stripes, and was not allowed to be flown outside the Indian Ocean. Both flags could have been easily constructed by adding white stripes to a British Red Ensign, a common flag throughout Britain and its colonies.
In 1795, the number of stars and stripes was increased from 13 to 15 (to reflect the entry of Vermont and Kentucky as states of the union). For a time the flag was not changed when subsequent states were admitted, probably because it was thought that this would cause too much clutter. It was the 15-star, 15-stripe flag that inspired Francis Scott Key to write “The Star-Spangled Banner”, now the national anthem. On April 4, 1818, a plan was passed by Congress at the suggestion of U.S. Naval Captain Samuel C. Reid in which the flag was changed to have 20 stars, with a new star to be added when each new state was admitted, but the number of stripes would be reduced to 13 so as to honor the original colonies. The act specified that new flag designs should become official on the first July 4 (Independence Day) following admission of one or more new states. The most recent change, from 49 stars to 50, occurred in 1960 when the present design was chosen, after Hawaii gained statehood in August 1959. Before that, the admission of Alaska in January 1959 prompted the debut of a short-lived 49-star flag. -Wikipeadia-
