According to some fashion historians, the first public appearance of the thong in the United States was at the 1939 New York World's Fair. This resulted from Fiorello LaGuardia, the Mayor of New York City, ordering the city's nude dancers to cover themselves.[9] Jacques Heim's and Louis Réard's original bikini from 1946 (that introduced the term bikini) had a culotte with a thong back.

Attitudes toward the wearing of g-strings vary geographically and across societies, as is usual with highly revealing clothing. Prior to its entrance into mainstream fashion, g-strings were primarily worn by exotic dancers. In the modern Western world, g-strings are more commonly marketed towards females but are worn by both sexes. During the 1980s, thongs were worn on stage by pop stars such as Cher and Madonna.[14] By the late-1980s, the style (for females) had made its way into most of the Western world; thong underwear became more popular through the 1990s due to TV shows such as: Baywatch, where numerous females were recorded wearing thong swimsuits.

Of particular controversy is the retail by several outlets, including Abercrombie & Fitch, Argos and Etam, of thongs for children as young as seven, due to their previous association with nude or erotic dancers. This controversy spawned a great deal of attention for Abercrombie, including a chain letter that received wide circulation.[39] Media attention was drawn to the phenomenon when a British primary head teacher voiced concerns that pupils as young as 10 were wearing thong underwear to school.[40]
Laura Schubert, co-founder of pubic-hair-oil company Fur, says ODDOBODY’s underwear is “perfect” — especially the brief. “It’s a classic,” she says. “I love a classic brief because they are comfortable and easy to wear. The stitching and fabric ensures that they don’t bunch or have weird lines.” Schubert also likes that the brand’s pieces are made of 100 percent cotton, and that ODDOBODY “promotes speaking comfortably about bodies, health, and identity.”
There is no shortage of underwear options, either. There is a fit for every need and mood. If you require a thong for an unforgiving skirt, boyshorts for lounging around at home or cheeky panties for your jeans, they are all available. Like bras, panties are sold in solid colors. They are also sold with lace, floral patterns and strappy details. Sometimes a plain pair of panties is best. Other times, you may want to be adventurous, cute or sexy. The good news is that there are panties for all occasions.

“I love a good high-waist; they bring me back to Christy Turlington days,” says Christina Viviani, cofounder of the Great Eros. Viviani notes that despite its comfort factor, sometimes high-waisted underwear can be unflattering. Marieyat’s thongs are no such thing, though: “The aesthetic is beautiful, and the cuts are really flattering and unconventional,” Viviani says of the brand. “In my store in Williamsburg, we also sell a style called the Canova ’90s Overt cut like a ’90s bikini with an overt, in a fine Italian sporty mesh, that makes a woman look long.”

Market research in 2011 placed the number of French women who wear thongs as their preferred underwear style at 25%, down by 5% from 2008.[17][18] By 2016, sales of thongs in the UK were on the decline with Marks & Spencer, a major UK lingerie retailer, reporting that they made up fewer than 10% of knickers sold.[14] Many reasons exist as to why people may choose to wear thong underwear or swimwear, such as prevention of visible panty lines,[19] prevention of underwear "riding up" so one need not pull at one's underwear in public, comfort, fashion consciousness including the feeling of being more adult,[14] and minimization of tan lines.[20]

Thong: Giving you the least amount of coverage, a thong has just a strip of fabric in the back to prevent panty lines from showing through clothes. According to Dr. Dweck, they're totally safe as long as they're not too tight. "The right thong with a cotton crotch and non-chafing 'G-string' that fits well is not a problem for those who prefer them," she advises.
