Just in time for beach season, the C-string has arrived. Less bulky (less everything, actually) than the classic thong, this little number aims to solve the problem of covering your netherparts when you're just not in the mood to deal with a waistband.
Though we couldn't find any information on the C-string website about just how this miracle product stays in place, according to the testimonials, it really does work. Allow this anecdote to explain:
I admit at first I was dreadfully insecure at the thought of it falling off while walking around without me noticing and leaving me totally nude... But it didn't and provided me with some necessary modesty down there.
There you have it. Happy swimming!
