Micro Thong Bikini

A micro thong bikini is the tiniest of all bikini cuts, and it is definitely not for the bashful.  Aptly named for its size, the micro thong is cut like a g-string or a t-back, with a super low rise front, thin string sides and a single string down the center of the back.  Some designers will also make the front very narrow in addition to being low rise, so this style offers minimal coverage all the way around.  It is the perfect style for avoiding tan lines left behind by fuller cuts.

Micro Thong Bikini

The key to wearing a micro thong bikini well is to make sure you have the right fit.  With a bottom this sexy, the last thing you want is to have the strings digging into your skin.  The strings should lie against your skin without binding so the bottom stays where it should be, and you don’t have to worry about ugly bulges around the strings.  Another important factor is pairing up the minimal style with the right top.  Since the bottom piece is so small, you will want a smaller top, too.  A triangle top is a versatile solution that will give you plenty of options from which to choose in terms of colors, prints and accessories.  A butterfly top is also a great choice because it can be worn both tied and strapless.  A micro thong bikini bottom and a delicate strapless top would create a gorgeous swimwear look that is just screaming to go on a vacation somewhere sexy and tropical.

Although a micro thong bikini is tempting to wear to every pool and beach within driving distance, it is a good idea to check local laws before you head out in your skimpy new swimsuit.  Some beaches are deemed “family friendly” and frown upon thong bikinis while other towns and counties may have a specific law against them or restrict where you can wear one.  It is always better to know before you go so you don’t potentially have your good time ruined by those pesky rule enforcers.
