|Many of you are already painfully aware of my semi-obsession with female
butts. Although there's nothing better than that perfectly shaped butt that's
butt nekkid in front of your face, there is also something to be said about
what you don't see. Leaving a little to the imagination can sometimes be
sexier. An otherwise average butt can be made to look much better if covered
by the correct type of bikini bottom.
There seems to be some confusion (even among some dancers) regarding the
actual names of the different types of bikini bottoms that are available.
If we are to be able to talk and write about this subject matter consistently,
we must be sure that we are talking about the same thing. Aside from the
fact that I like talking about and looking at butts, the following is presented
here as a study in bikini bottoms for the purposes of understanding and
recognizing the styles available.
Thanks to Wild and Free Online Catalog
for allowing us to use the pictures of the bikini bottoms. All of the bikini
bottoms shown here are available from their web site by simply

Lets start with the traditional T-Back.
Although I don't know the actual history of the name, I assume that the name
came from the fact the the back of the bikini looks like a "T". Notice that
most of the butt is showing but not much of the front shows with this style.
In Los Angeles, many topless clubs allow T-Backs to be worn.
Some of the pickier topless clubs
force their dancers to wear this style of bikini bottom known as the 1/4
Back. This style is similar to the traditional T-Back except a little
more of the butt is hidden. Notice how there is a crease created in the back
lower portion of the bikini. In some ways, this is sexier than the more skimpy
T-Back style. In any case, enough butt is shown that if I was the quarter
back, I'd sure want my center to wear one.
In Los Angeles, clubs that are bikini only
are supposed to have their dancers wear full bottoms. However, most of them
allow them to wear the style shown here known as 1/2 Backs. I assume
the name implies that half their butts are covered. Quite often, the dancer
will pull the sides up to reveal more of their butts.
In nude clubs, it is often cumbersome for the dancer to get out of her bikini
bottoms if she must do this standing up. In order to accommodate this need,
the bikini bottom industry has come up with styles that allow the bottoms
to come off very easily.
Shown here is a style called Rip-Off
bottoms. As the name implies, there is a small hook on the side that allows
the dancer to unhook the sides and take the bottom off without having to
slide it down her legs. There's always somebody coming up with a better bikini
snap. Personally, if the dancer knows how to tease really good, this type
of bikini bottom can be very sexy. She can prolong the tease by holding onto
the unhooked portion but not revealing the prize too fast.
For those of you who are now thinking
that these T-Back style bottoms have too much hidden in the waist area, just
take a look at this next style known as the SJ T-Back. As you can
see, the general shape of the T-Back is still there but the side waist material
is as thin as dental floss. Nevertheless, this still qualifies as a T-Back
and that small triangular material makes it all good.
Now you're saying to yourself,
how about making this thin waist version come right off like the Rip-Off
version, right? Say no more. The String SJ Tie bottom meets this criteria
down to the crotch. All the dancer has to do is pull on the ripcord and shwing!
I know some nude dancers who now work topless who have to double tie their
bottoms so they don't take their bottom off on stage. I guess old habits
are hard to break. Hmmm. How about going to the pool?
Just when you thought that all possible shapes and styles of T-Backs have
been invented, some designer has to come up with yet more styles with fancy
names. How many more styles can there be? Well, I guess there could be as
many different styles as there are bikini designers.
One of these fancy styles is called
the Diamond Cut bottom (shown here). This T-Back style was probably
given this name because of the diamond "V" shape cut on the back and front
top areas. This allows for just a wee more to show in the back but fancy
doesn't always mean sexier.
As a perfect example of fancier doesn't equal
sexier, take a look at this next style called the Nova bottom. Instead
of it being a "star", it looks more like a sumo wrestler's jock strap. The
wide and horizontal waist is definitely a turn off for me.
There are other fancy looking T-Back styles but you get the general idea
of the available types.
Your next cry is, "Enough T-Backs for topless clubs! Where's the G-Strings?!"
Your wish has been answered. All nude clubs basically allow the dancer to
wear just about anything. Since they are going to take it all off anyway,
it really doesn't matter what they wear. And so they do wear some skimpy
Here we see your average G-String. The
main difference between the G-String and the T-Back is the back. As you can
see, the triangular piece of cloth in the back is missing. All you see is
some floss holding the tiny thing together. However, the front area covers
just about the same amount of real estate as the T-Back. If you like butts
like I do, the more butt area you can see, the better.
Now for those of you who don't care to leave
much to the imagination, take a look at this Micro bottom. As you can plainly
see, this is the extreme in G-Strings. With this style, even the front is
lowered and the covered area is even smaller. If this got any smaller, they
could make this out of thread instead of using fabric.
All in all, I hope you enjoyed this mini bikini bottom tour. Hopefully, this
has made you more aware of the different types of butts, I mean, bikini bottoms
that are available. The next time you are talking to someone about this topic,
you can feel more confident in dropping bikini bottom technical terms like
