This Swimsuit Style Lets You Get Cheeky at the Beach

Swimsuits come in all shapes and designs that sometimes it gets overwhelming to choose just one. But if you’re looking to update your regular bikinis and one-pieces, one option is the thong style.

Thong swimsuits aren’t always made with close-to-nothing G-string bottoms. Many still give ample coverage while adding sexiness to the wearer because it shows off the butt cheeks. It’s also one reason why butt masks and scrubs exist.

Recently, Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner shared throwback photos where they were frolicking at the beach while topless.
