Ah I didn't realize, bad news! I guess I'll have to pick up the expensive ones off eBay.

I bought a package right before they stopped selling them at Walmart... probably 18 months ago. They are ok. I have some older jockey string bikinis that are amazing, and some Joe boxer string bikinis that are awful. The fit of the life string bikini is good enough to make me curious if anyone makes a swimsuit with a similar cut. But If I was in your shoes, spend your money on one good pair instead of a pack of mediocre.

I've bought many of them before. The quality isn't amazing, but for the price I like them a lot. They are ideal for sports or running and the cut is very sexy.

I actually noticed that Aussiebum is carrying a new string bikini suit (Tanga - see here). I plan on trying one out sometime. Another one that looks hot is from Prevail Sport, but not sure what the quality is like.

Kiniki also makes a tanga (string bikini) swimsuit. It has about a 3/4 back though, if not having full rear coverage is an issue. I have one of the Cuba style in red. Link included: https://kiniki-usa.com/collections/m...nt=40849509129

That Aussiebum looks great, the kiniki good too. From a quick look at the kiniki would it be better if it had a smaller pouch and bigger rear?

Does the kiniki fit well, or is it constant wedgie pulling?

I noticed that Kiniki does make half back tangas in other colors if you want something briefer.
I don't have a Kiniki tanga, but I did by a tan through micro from them. It didn't cover the top of my bush or crack, so that was too micro for my taste.
Similarly, I bought a half back string side rio from Skinzwear a while ago. The width of the back was 4" at the waist. That's a lot less than most men's rears. Beside, it was so narrow that it essentially turned itself into a thong when I was moving.
I got rid of it after a little while.

Hey Freestyle - I just looked at the Jockey web site - they did not list the Life string bikini (I think that was specially made for Walmart?), but they do have a couple other string bikini briefs - see https://www.jockey.com/catalog?depar...derwear&page=4

Hey thanks! They look nice but I was hoping to find the ones with the narrow band as I find they are better for being active.

Kiniki sells string bikini (tanga) underwear with a choice of wide or narrow waist bands.
