String (linen room)
The string (in English thong or G-string , for cord or string) is a type of Sous-vêtement (or Bathing suit) intended to hide the Pubis but leaving the Fesse S entirely discovered. It is often tiny room to the strict minimum.
It is an undergarment made up of two parts of fabric, of Cuir, vinyl or latex. The first part is a triangle recovering the pubis and being prolonged in a fine band (often reduced to a string) passing between the Cuisse S and the buttocks. It is connected by its two ends to the second part, it also more or less fine, which surrounds the Hanche S.
Alternatives derived from the string
The string and its use as tool of Seduction.
When the string with the back is very fine, one speaks about string string , when it is a little broader and that it is decorated of a small additional part (in general a triangle) not recovering the buttock, one speaks about a string (or tanguita ). If this part has suddenly covered part of the buttock, one speaks about a tanga . The tanga is often confused with the Brazilian Slip, which offers as for him a symmetry between the parts before and back, so much and so that one has evil to distinguish the direction from threading. The Brazilian Slip recovers the buttocks more that a tanga, but less than a bikini or than a breeches. There exists also the string butterfly , whose part being used to hide the pubis resembles two wings of butterfly deployed.
According to the models, the string is more or less indented on the top of the thighs and the pubis, and bandages it ringing the hips can be of variable width. When the band is broad and goes down relatively low on the buttocks, one speaks about shorty string , the shorty being a kind of mini-shorts. In the same way, there exists the body-string , which is a body of which the part passing between the buttocks is made with the manner of a string.
Origins of the string
Enough paradoxically, the string probably existed before the breeches. Indeed, its origin, goes up very far in the history. Many primitive people carried (and for some still carry) during centuries what could be regarded as the ancestor of the string. This clothing was certainly of very rudimentary design: a simple fabric band in the crotch connected to a bond around the size. It is also reported that it was carried in versions more sophisticated a little by whole generations of Danseuse S exotics.
However, the string is its first modern successes only in the Années 1970, and mainly for esthetic reasons: to solve the problem of the mark of the visible breeches under the tight pants S that the Mannequin S at the time of the processions of mode presented, even if some bold women and other stripteaseuses did not hesitate to carry them and show them.
Very quickly, the women of South America, in particular the Brazil iennes (from where the “Brazilian Slipway”), will show a true passion for this undergarment, in particular as a Bathing suit (one speaks then about " bathing suit brésilien"). As of 1975, the string makes its first appearances in the collections of French Lingerie .
It is necessary to await the Années 1990 so that the string meets some Notoriété, and that it enters manners completely. Since the beginning of the Years 2000, it became an object of mode, so much so that it represents today largest of the volume of the sales of the female underclothing.
Carried mainly by the women, the string is today the female Sous-vêtement more sold. It only accounts for with him 60% of the sales of underclothing in France, where since 2000 the sales of strings fly away and are at the origin of an increase of 12% of the market of the underclothing.
There are also models for man, but which do not know the popularity of their female equivalents, because compared to the community Gay (even if the gays do not appreciate it inevitably, and in general prefer to him the boxer close to the body, or the Jockstrap, undergarment of sport considered to be more virile).
Certain sportsmen, in particular fights about it Gréco-Roman and in musculation, have recourse to this type of undergarment to the reason which it allows a greater ease of movement.
Today a great number of creators introduce the string man into their collections of underclothing. Even Body-string is present at the men.
In France, during the summer 2006, particularly heat, and parallel to the discussions on the port of the apparent religious signs (of which the veil) at the school, certain politicians, at which Eric Raoult and Ségolène Royal, was indignant that more and more of young girls, in the enclosure even of the schools, choose the look apparent navel and string, which is by no means prohibited by the French law, which however reprimand the attacks with decency. A request was thus formulated near the Minister for education so that it gives precise instructions with an aim of putting an end to these practices.
This request generated strong reactions on behalf of people estimating that it was a question of making take precedence the morals of some over the freedom of all. They estimate that standardization and the regulation by the State of the private sphere, or concerning the individual choices, can lead only to one company of Répression, of Exclusion, and at a totalitarian State. Other people, supporting the request, regard as for them these criticisms as caricatural by their extremism, a school being a public place and not a private sphere. However, although their motivations are the respect of the “moralities”, these people are regarded as making the play of confusion between the subjective moral and the right, which is décrié by their opponents.
In same time, the socialist mayor of Paris, Bertrand Delanoë, took a Local by-law concerning the edition 2006 of the demonstration Paris-Beach, prohibiting the behaviors known as indecent (including the strings) and making them liable to a fine of 38 euros. The town hall stressed that the goal of this text was “to conform to the moralities, peace, safety and the law and order”
This type of underclothing very often requires to proceed to a depilation adapted pubic fleece, the latter being in general reduced to a band or a triangle low-size, which one then calls a trim .
Always in a preoccupation with a reduction to bare essential, the minis-string or microphone-string appeared, which recovers only the Genital.
Hygiene and health
At the woman, the close contact of fabric of the string with the Muqueuse S can cause irritations, and in the event of insufficient hygiene, facilitate the infections, in particular the urinary infections.
