Thongs have come a long way. What started out as a loincloth for protecting tribal men’s bits has now developed into one of the most talked-about items of clothing today. Taking that conversation a new level is the diamante thong, putting bling in places it’s never been before.
A thong is already racy enough, so you may be wondering why we should put sparkly bits on it to make it stand out even more. Why not, we say! The trend for thong ornamentation actually started in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s, when people started deliberately exposing their thongs over the top of their trousers. Given our current culture of bling, the diamante thong is simply the natural evolution of this popular fashion item.
Diamantes can accentuate a traditional thong in a number of different ways. They can be placed at the rear of the thong at the connecting point of the pouch and the waistband, drawing attention to the delicate area at the top of the buttocks. Or, they can be placed all the way along the waistband, creating a sparkly accent when worn alone or when peeking out over a sexy skirt or trousers. Be sure to avoid any ornamental designs that place the diamantes too close to any sensitive areas, such as along the fabric that sits between the buttocks.
The diamante thong is the next level of sexy for a garment that already turns heads. Adding a bit of sparkle to a thong can bring a bit of fun and excitement to your outfit whether it’s on display or cheekily hidden under other clothing. Want to see for yourself?
