Re:Baggies - Stringless - strapless or C-string suits for males. (Suits with no side straps)

Date Posted:06/12/2008 12:03:26Copy HTML

I have a Dore stringless (aka baggie), and I like it very much.  This style doesn't appear in any of her Internet sites, but it is a standard item with her.  Mine is plain yellow lycra with an elastic opening --- no string tieup.  It stays on fine and is slightly see thru when wet.  Several years ago she charged $8.

Thanks for the info I will be getting in touch with Dore to place the order.  What size baggie did you get? I also prefer the elastic to the string tie.

Dore's s-m-l sizing doesn't apply directly to stringless baggies.  Laying flat on a table, mine measures 5 inches accross the top (elastic opening to tip end) and 4.5 inches from the top edge to the lowest edge.  Bye the way, I restrict my wearing of it to boats, canoes, and privately owned waterfront.

Do you think the reason why we don't see more guys wearing the baggies is due to following factors: appearing nude from the back, thaving to remove all your pubic hair, being so bare or a little of all these things.

I've worn a Koala Swimmers Pouch whilst sunbathing with only myself at he pool area, not many people come by at all, as the place where I stay on holiday (Formentera) is quite private, and people seem to be tolerant to thongs/g-strings, so no problem there.  But a Baggie I feel is as far as I can go before going nude, which I have never done before by the pool but, have done on the beach.  The thing is, I am reluctant to swim in my Koala suit, simply because I reckon it might slip off due to my sack retracting due to cold water, and consequently my suit sinking to the bottom of the pool, very embarassing, not only frantically searching for the tiny suit, but also emerging from the pool naked, particularly if people are about.  So, baggies great for sunbathing and showing off a bit, but a no no for swimming in.

I guess I haven't seen the need to go to that extreme.  As someone else pointed out, might as well just wear body paint or go nude at that point, there's not much difference.   I have a few small "bag" g-strings from tangaland which are just a little oval shaped pouch that just covers everything that needs to be covered and not a millimeter more (assuming you're shaved), and rather securely.  The straps are small...no real tan line worries if you shift them around and they are ok to swim in.   A baggie just doesn't seem practical to me in comparison, and I don't like the way they look to the extent that I wouldn't wear one.  But to each his own, I guess we all have our own boundaries and comfort levels.

Actually I'm a nudist and spend lots of time fully bare at my club.  I get a kick out of wearing super-scanty things like a stringless on non-public occasions, but public beaches are very anti-thong around here.   Some even have a definite anti-thong laws.  I've even gotten yelled at over a one inch Speedo.

I have a few of the suits you remember.  They were made by Ibiza Swimwear Co., sold for a time by Playboy Products, and subsequently made and sold by Sport Europa, no longer in business.  They had a technical problem in that the spring wire that held them up was spot welded during manufacture, leaving the wire very brittle.  I VERY laborously fitted two of them with new wire.  I did that only because I really liked the suits.  They were very comfortable and had no tendency to fall off.  The fronts were about the height of a jockstrap pouch and tight enough that they were best worn 12 o'clock, my only suits having that high a cut.  Those are not sold now, but www.thestringless.com has something very similar.  Theirs have a much lower and more protruding front as well as a scantier back.  They cost $50, high but about what the earlier ones cost, inflation adjusted.  I haven't bought the new thestringless, only beacuse I have lots of other thongs now.

I've just received my Baggie off Dore, and wow ! quite the best Baggie by far, as the item feels very secure on as it has a string pull at the top to enable you to have it as tight on as you wish.  I reckon you could swim with this on as it gives you the confidence to do so.  Mine measures four and a half inches long, which for me is a little too long, four inches would be better, however, Dore does do alterations, so consequently she will adjust it to the size I want.  I'm going to order some more, and she has a wealth of colours to choose from,  although plain colours in a Baggie seems the way to go as the item is small, and plain I feel shows off the item to its best.  Incrediblly she only charges $8 for a Baggie which I reckon is a real bargain.  This item will be perfect to wear for sunbathing, as it will show no lines at all and is very comfortable to wear.  All in all, a great purchase.

A variation on pube shaving seen at nudist clubs and also applicable to baggie suits is to shave cleanly around the package but leave a thin line accross the top of what was the triangle.  I wore mine that way for years.  A low g-string will cover the shaved part and show the line of hair, though.

I ordered the Leopard print.  The suit will fly on South Beach and Haulover, locally. However, considering my reaction to baggies (above) I added, on a different thread (Thonging 101) the phrase "that you can feel and act comfortably in". While I have worn only a baggie on South Beach, I feel much more comfortable with a tiny waist string so that I don't look nude from the back. It rarely comes close to the baggie in front, though, only when I pull it down and  behing the baggie as when I am standing in a refreshment line. Perhaps I  will be comfortable in only a baggie sometime.

I got one of these (Banana Peelz) in brown because I've been spending more weekends tanning au naturel in the back yard and want to avoid sunburn in a few tender places.  The size was ok and even stays on while swimming.  I can't say I like the look for the beach because it doesn't cover enough at the top, but I guess it's subjective and open to interpretation where the pen-- starts.  I'll stick to thongs or something with a strap for that.

Sorry I wasn't clear, it's a Banana Peelz in brown.

It's kind of amusing how these subjective "showing too much" can be.  I have some small Japanese speedo type suits that pretty much come right to the top of the shaft but without any hair to demarcate what's "naughty" and what's not, you really don't know.  With a baggie or even a minimal teardrop suit, it's a little more obvious what's being exposed and what isn't.

Sliding,   Just received the Banana Peelz. It seems to be the other extreme from the Testosterone in terms of size and fit. The Testotterone is very tight and the peelz is loose and baggy. Not a bad look, though, and it can be drawn together tight at the top.  Won't be able to try it out until some time next week. I am not sure that I will walk around without the string, though. Funny how we all have our different comfort levels.

Sliding,

Sounds like a great adventure!  BananaPeelz sent me a camoflage suit instead, so I can't tell you about the mesh.
I love it. It is not nearly as tight as the Testosterone, more space for the equipment!
I like my Testosterone, but it gets too tight after a little while, and takes forever to stuff everything in.

Sliding-I have more questions-
What are the measurements of the baggie that Dore sells online?
Is the orange material opaque or see thru? Is it mesh so you can pee in the ocean without taking it off?

I have a tight Dore baggie of traffic orange fishnet which I used to wear at DeSoto and really liked, now need better coverage, but I really like the color.

 OK, I would probably never wear a baggie at the beach but on a whim last week I discovered that BananaPeelz solved my long standing issue of what to wear under my biking shorts.  I know you're not supposed to wear anything under padded-seat biking shorts but I really need some support and a thong is usually pretty ok.  The Cocksox thongs tend to work good because they lift the goods up and away from the seat.  Downside is that the thong is visible thru the shorts a little (ok, maybe that's just fun and not a negative?).  It also collects sweat.

I've been cycling using a baggie underneath now (BananaPeelz) and what a joy...it makes enough of a pouch that the man-bits are out of the way and also protected from any friction.  It also hides a little detail so it's a little more modest than not wearing anything.  The fabric is really soft and everything is comfortable and rub-free. Really amazing...my wife said she'd sew me some more of these.     I've also noticed that  I can kind of let my package hang down my leg on one side and still not have any rubbing so it's very comfortable and a little exhibitionist at the same time (you guys are a bad influence!).

SlidingG you should try one of those split-saddles or one with a deep groove if you're having perineum issues.  I got one and also adjusted it so almost all the pressure is on my hip bones and it's worked really well.

I went for a long ride at lunchtime yesterday and I'm definitely addicted to the baggie-as-underwear concept now.  Very comfortable and I forgot how much I was "showing" unless the gaze of someone reminded me as I passed by.  I might have to try this with my lycra roller blading shorts now...

 If you are having saddle problms on a tri bike get profesional help with bike fit from a bike shop that specilzies in fitting people for tri-bikes.  (It's not the same fit as road bikes becuase the aro bars shift your weight foraward over the handlebars).  It has been my experence that a lot of people are riding a bike that is not correctly fitted and setup for them.  You need the right size, not just in seat post mesurement but top tube too.  The geomatry, seat post angle and bar setup are all part of the equasion.
One get's accustom to riding ones old jalopy and adapting to a new setup may at first feel funny, but getting the right fit and correct weight distribution will lead to both more comfort and faster times. Go find someone who is a true tri bike fit specialist. If only to confirm that what you are riding, setup the way you have it, is the best you can do.

To answer your questions SlidingG, by showing I mean my member was rather obviously going down my leg, although the baggie smoothed out the detail level a bit.    I usually ride a heavier off-road bike to increase the intensity of my exercise because many times I only have 30-45 minutes and want to get the most out of it...I'm not really tucked down into an aero position as much as I would be on a racing frame.

The baggie does sort of help it stay where I want either in the middle or off the side.  That's usually why I wear a thong for support because the natural shifting around that takes place is not comfortable and requires constant "maintenance".   I wish I could do the pointing up thing, but that has never worked for me.  I either have to worry about poking out the top or gravity kind of makes things flop southward quickly.

 I have just posted a series of pictures of the Koala Testosterone, Jock Sock, Banana Peelz, and Dore baggies on my gallery on usg-online.com. I was turned on to this site by a post by uncljohn2 in the Dore thread. Its a shame that it is exclusively male oriented, but is a way of sharing how these things look.
I prefer the Testosterone and then the Jock Sock. The Dore is nice but I think that I goofed in ordering it in Cire. The Banana Peelz is way too loose, swings too much and is poorly made. I have worn them all on South Beach but, most of the time, wear a small string around my waist so that I don't look completely nude.

 The best baggies are made to order for size- feel fantastic to wear if you fit them real tight-use a long shoestring (wrap several times)for a drawstring. Woven mesh is her best material for wearing though fishnet feels best. Makes a round ball which stands out forward and bobs as you walk.
Dore provides the best-- if you provide her a pattern, she will make them exact. My best fit is 5in wide and 3in deep when laid flat.
You might need to have several made to get the right fit for your anatomy.
Nice photos, but none are fitting good, most are too loose. The Koala is best.

I have several bananapeelz. Bought my first one for the WNBR-DC last year. The mesh is rather flimsy but, when someone called the police last summer it past the test. (they called it boarderline indecent) I was spaying weeds in my front yard and only seen from the back by someone driving past. The ladies made me a "sportweave" that has small holes in the fabric. It works great in my backyard pool. Up close there is a peakaboo effect but, not from any distance. Also, they will adjust the size for you.

My bananapeelz was too loose and floppy, so I sewed up my own from material in an old tan-thru racer I no longer wore, using the elastic string and cinching toggle from the bananapeelz.  Fits great, looks better than the bananapeelz and feels great, like I'm nude.  Not many places I dare wear it, but it keeps me just barely legal when clothing optional is not an option, which is most of the time.  Just a pleasant alternative from my customary tan-thru sliding g-strings when I'm in the mood for a bit of a rush.

I made my own baggie, from a sliding G-string.

First, I cut off the crack strap and removed the waist part. Then I sewed together the edges (the edges that run from the crack strap area to the sliding part), making sure I did it inside-out so that, when finished and turned rightside-out, the seam was on the inside and thus hidden. This is the pouch. Finally, I threaded a piece of elastic through the sliding part, and sewed it together. You'll have to experiment a bit to get just the right amount of tightness. Too tight and you'll either cut off the circulation to your parts or not be able to put the thing on; too loose and it'll come off too easily.

Maxtlatl, making a baggie from a sliding g-string required starting with a suit having a fairly wide top, didn't it?  I'll check some of my old ones, but I doubt they're wide enough to go around my equipment, and probably wouldn't result in enough volume to contain everything once sewn up.  What brand of suit was yours?  Kind of a neat idea.

I don't know what kind of suit it was, but it was just a standard sliding G. If you have doubts, just try using a string to measure your circumference (at the base), and compare it to the G. I think you'll find, modulo a bit of stretchiness, that the measurements are about the same.

A strapless pouch is available from Prevail Sport.  It's called a "Holster"..Dore also makes them, because I sent her one of mine so she could copy it.  There are several other places that offer them as underwear, but they're fine for sunning and swimming.

Had recent occasion to wear one of my Dore baggies on SouthBeach in the hotel pool at night.  I knew that there were usually few people around so I put it on wrapped in a towel and off to the rooftop, it's fairly dark there- with pool lights that strobe with the music. 

There was a couple there I'd met the day before wearing a sheer thong. She didn't see me get in the pool but we were both swimming laps and when she (in bare bottom bikini) would pass me going the opposite direction she would look down-thought I was nude for a while until I was doing a backstroke. Her husband didn't seem to care or notice. Some more people came up and sat around not paying attention. 

When I got out I just toweled off, turned around facing away and pulled it off and wrapped up- didn't want to drip water in the elevator.

They're good to swim in- and good when no one cares or can see.

Beachfolks,
The sportweave is bright orange. But, I may wear the green swimsuit lycra. While the sportweave has a slight peekaboo look, the lycra is more form fitting IF you can get the air out. Check out the photo of Roger last year on the wiki site. Link is on WBNR thread. I have NO idea where he got it.
