What is a tanga bikini bottom?

A tanga bikini bottom is a type of swimsuit bottom that is similar to a bikini brief, but with a more minimal back coverage. Tanga bottoms are designed to sit low on the hips and have a narrow strip of fabric that extends from the front waistband to the back waistband, leaving the buttocks partially exposed. Tanga bottoms are often considered to be more revealing than traditional bikini briefs and are a popular choice for women who want to show off their curves. They are also sometimes called "cheeky" bikini bottoms because of their minimal coverage.
