G-String Bras Are the New Lingerie Trend Taking Hold

Step aside, string bikinis and thongs—bras want in on the dental floss action too. Lately, I’ve been noticing a ton of bras with ultra-thin bands and straps, which is why I’ve dubbed them G-string bras. I know not everyone will be a fan of this skimpy lingerie trend, as most styles only offer light coverage. However, if you are excited to try a barely-there bra, this look is super cute for showing off under semi-sheer or backless tops. Plus, it’s in line with some people’s summer philosophy of wearing as little as possible. 

At first, I was having trouble finding enough examples to compile a story, but then I kept coming across these G-string bras left and right, proving that it’s a major trend. Some of the most popular lingerie brands all have versions of the razor-thin trend, including Hanky Panky, Cosabella, Kiki de Montparnasse, and more. Scroll down to shop the 27 best G-string bras.
