On the other hand, the side has a medium width and the back is larger, usually covering the entire buttock region. This is the type of knicker that offers more comfort.

This thong looks good with any style of clothing, however, it is necessary to be careful with the tightest clothes so that the thong do not leave marks on the clothes.

This knicker model is ideal for the "inverted triangle" type of body (i.e., for people who have wider shoulders than the hip) and for people who have less volume in the buttock area.

The silhouette body, X-shaped, with waist, hip and shoulders balanced can also take advantage of this model, even if they already have larger buttocks.
