Whaletail Bikini

Yes! The whaletail is now in bikini form! It's rather similar to the typical thong bikini, so let's clear things up, shall we? Generally speaking, the thong bikini offers modest coverage in the front and has thin straps as sides. The back is usually a thin wedge of fabric that connects to the side straps and nothing covers the cheeks. As long as the cheeks remain bare, it's a thong bikini. Caught up so far? Good.

Now then, what is this whaletail bikini version? Image the tail of a whale. On a whaletail bikini, the back has the same gradual taper from the center wedge of fabric to the sides as the shape of the tail of a whale. Aptly named, right? Sorry, no super cool distinction. There's no unique design feature to them or a reason to wear one style over the other - it's just about the aesthetics. If you really want to get down into the details, the whaletail thong uses a bit more fabric than the average thong in order to create the sleek telltale shape. Other than that, the two styles are identical and, depending on who you ask, some women may claim that the whaletail version has a much sexier look, overall. Again, it's all about aesthetic appeal. The whaletail, because the the gradual arched shape, tends to give the butt a rounder look, but then again, it's all in the eye of the beholder. So give them both a try and form your own opinion.
