Underwear 101 – What is a Tanga
If you’re new to the world of underwear and start surfing around sites. You’re bound to see the style “tanga” on sites. You may be asking “What the hell is a tanga?” In the US it’s not a term we use for underwear. However, it is becoming more and more common. I”m sure you have seen one but didn’t know it was a tanga.
A Tanga is a pair of underwear that has a fabric in the front and back, which is connected by strings or elastic. You could call it a string bikini. The key is that there is no fabric on the sides. The string can be a small string or an elastic waistband. The styles are usually skimpy and not large. So basically for a lack of better term, it’s a string bikini.
There are a ton of guys who’s favorite style is the tanga. One big reason is the, outside the fit is, the range of motion you get from the style. It’s perfect for an active guy. The high cut sides will let you stretch or move for working out and yoga. It’s a different option for guys.
