In many ways, the boythong is sexier than a regular thong. The look, the fit, the appearance of full cut boyshorts, but with the tong back. And it's actually a godsend for someone who wants a little more coverage, but all the benefits of a thong (i.e. no pantylines). Eberjey's boythong is made of super comfortable stretch nylon, to hug your every curve without digging into your thighs, hips or having uncomfortable seams. The thong is wide enough to fit nicely without being bothersome.
