I personally like to wear suspender thongs, even though they usually show quite a bit on women.  I also used to like seeing men in them.  There was something really cool about being nude from your toes to the tops of your shoulders.   But it seems that since the Borat movie came out, fewer people are wearing suspender thongs than before.  I now see only one or two suspender thongs on men each summer, while I used to see dozens.  Women seem a little less likely to be affected by whatever is causing the drop in suspender swimsuit sales and/or wearing.

Could that one movie ridicule suspender thongs so much that their popularity is only a fraction of what it was before?  If this was true, is there a way to exploit similar feeling to make thong swimwear more popular again?  On the other side of the coin, a guy at the beach in a suspender thong can almost always find women who want to have their picture taken with him.  They are also more popular for general conversations.  So I now don't know if a guy  embracing the suspender thong look is a good thing or a bad thing.

I believe yes, the Borat movie made suspender thongs less popular, I actually don't think they were ever popular at all.... but now they are more linked to pranks or dares, something outrageous and funny.
I would never wear a suspender thong.

 I agree with John feel they are a novelty item for men.  Since men do not need to wear a top suspenders just mess up a tan and I think they look silly.  I would not wear one.  However I hold a double standard here because I think women look really hot in a suspender or sling style, especially on beaches where thongs are fine but women need to cover their nipples.

 As a male thong we are I think Borat did much harm to the cause. On men they just look stupid in my opinion. the suspender   omen serve no purpose.

an alternative view is that the Borat movie allowed guys to wear thongs on the beach - sure just for a laugh, but many of them quite liked the attention and being able to get their buns out.  Aside from the Borat effect, I cant see they are a good thing on guys.  I dont think it affects the girls as they will try to get something fitting if they are that skimpy.

 Tiggerix -- Thank you for your comments.  I did not think about how the Borat movie created the "Borat Dare".  More than one guy I know has been coerced into putting on a Borat suit as part of a dare.  And as stated, at least one I know, loved the feel of not wearing much and has evolved to wearing thongs and other minimal swimwear.  

I do not agree that suspender thong are a dumb look for guys.  I think the Borat suit is not all that great, but other styles with thinner straps and other changes can be pretty hot.  I like a suspender thong on a guy for three reasons.  First, as originally stated, the guy is nude along his entire side from his toes to his shoulders.  There is no waist band, just skin.  This can be a very cool look.  Second, the pouch for his goodies tends to be pretty minimal (at least in width) and this is a hot look too.  Third is the fact that a guy who is comfortable in his suspender thong, and who has worn it a while will know how to sit or move in a way that lets him show off his family jewels to others.  I love going to the beach with one of my male friends and having them sit next to me, sort of hunched over a bit, and being able to look down the front of the pouch on the suit and see the hope diamond.  Few other swimwear designs for men can be worn in G, or R rated versions without even touching the suit materials with the hands, and transition from one to the other can be so casual that it does not draw attention to itself.  A confident man can show what he wants, when he wants, and for viewing by who he wants in a suspender suit.

 I had one years ago.  Must have worn it to the beach a couple of times.   Like Mary says if  you're sitting down everyone who looks down it will be able to see everything.   I thought I might get arrested if anyone complains.   Here is one from aliexpress that's relatively cheap.

Boring!  A great men's suspender thong is Joe Snyder's string G-string suspender thong which makes the Borat suspender look absolutely stupid.  If a guy would want to look like the rear end of a donkey, get and wear a neon green Borat suspender thong to be long remembered and teased about by friends.  Better yet send me the cash you will have wasted on that stupid purchase.  Wearing a Joe Snyder string suspender thong is an unmistakable fashion statement and affirmation that the wearer has the gonads to show the world that he is a brave and independent man's man.

I think suspender thongs were "less popular" long before the Borat movie!!

 The Borat suit is just so bulky - too much fabric. A better-fitted version can look okay, though. I saw a young man wearing one at the beach a couple of years ago, and it looked quite  good on him. He told me, though, that he viewed it as strictly a novelty, and was just wearing it on a lark.

 The one interesting thing about the Borat suspender thong is that you have nothing on the sides of your body. Having worn conventional thongs or g-strings many times, that was an unusual sensation when I wore a Borat thong to a costume party. 
As for making thongs more popular, I don't think that it did. There were more men wearing it as a joke, however.

Hay Mr. HBO,You might consider opening a Borat suspender thong car wash to practice building up enough courage prior to hitting the beach where you can wear it with pride!

I think that Borat did a lot to harm the mens' thonging movement. Instead of showing a good looking guy in a thong, they turned it into a joke.

to be honest. i think it may appear as though it made suspender thongs less popular on men but the reality is very different (at least around the world in less thong popular destinations). sure, the green mankini was popular among stag parties and fancy dress after movie release (often with guys wearing flesh coloured speedos underneath because they don't want to be seen as gay for wearing it against their bare skin!). but i think the actual problem is that any kind of skimpy swimsuit that men wear is always going to get laughs because of anything with a string up the backside is being in the extreme minority of swimwear choice for males. i don't think many males ever wore suspender thongs like this BEFORE the movie was released anyway!

suspender thongs have always looked fantastic on women, and always will. but i've never seen one at the beach, and only seen in photos online from pool parties (usually vegas or miami). seen quite a few with transparent plastic straps - so as to appear naked. seems like is is the 'extreme' version of a one piece suit, like some wicked weasels are extreme versions of two piece bikini's.

i think they just have not been that common on women (and men even less so), because they just don't cover much, at difficult to maintain while wearing (nipple coverage etc.) and perhaps aren't that comfortable when moving around.

i know i have an original dore made suspender suit that i have never worn outside, or to any beach. it looks amazing (thin straps, torpedo pouch) and i hope to wear it some day, but because of its rarity it's likely to attract a lot of unwanted attention (the picture taking isn't usually a compliment - they're making fun, they just don't make it obvious). i think suspender thongs have more of a female exclusivity for some reason, probably the reason behind the choice for the borat movie as well.


i also think women are less likely to wear one at the beach because of unwanted attention. i know i'd probably give a thumbs up and kudos to a female with the guts to wear one, and i'm sure i'd be one of a hundred. that's the problem.

i think the borat character was hilarious for people that actually have a sense of humour. borat himself was a joke and if you look at the context in which he wears it in the movie (by a dirty river) it's funny for that reason. the lime green and thick straps make it stand out even more for the added effect. it was comedy genius (as was the rest of the movie and the skits on the ali g show).

so Mary, if you've seen them on men (legitimately) and do wear them as well, damn, i'd love to live in your part of the world.

 They were never popular. Has nothing to do with a Borat.

My male friends have suspender thongs that I gave them.  They rarely wear them in busy public places, but will when there are only a few people around.  At these times, they get some chuckles from the crowd.  This is why I thought the style was made unpopular by the movie.  However, they report that there are two advantages to the suspender thongs.  First is the way they let ones whole side be exposed to sun -- and other sun worshipers.  They say the sensation of having one's side completely nude in public is similar to the rush they got when they first wore smaller and smaller swimwear.  The second thing they like is the fact that these suits are loose up front, and by bending into the right positions, they can get sun into laces that normally don't get any.  The same moves can expose their equipment if they find someone who appears like they might like to see it.

While I can understand the first point (no sides), since my three suspender thongs give me the same sensations, Women have a little difference in their ability to exposes themselves.   Bending over shows almost nothing -- except some pubic hair if you still have some.  But keeping the breasts fully covered seems almost impossible at virtually all times.  Standing, laying, bending, it makes no difference what you do -- if you move, it seems you tits want to pop our.  I have gotten to the point of mostly wearing my suspender thongs at places where it is legal to be topfree.  Then I simply don't worry too much if things pop out.  If I intend to stay someplace a while and don't intend to move, I will put the fabric back in place, since I agree that it can be a hot look on women.  I have three suspender thongs.  The first one I got is very similar to a Borat thong.  It has wide suspender straps.  My boyfriend thought it might be fun to both have this type suit and wear them places together.  We got mostly positive reviews.  This was before the movie came out.  My boobs die pop out occasionally, but the wider material seemed to help the suit keep this from happening as  easily.  We ordered a men's and a women's suit, but when they came we realized that they were made in a unisex style.  My second suit is a suspender suit made of open lace or fishnet with the holes between 1/4 and 1/2 inches (6 - 12 mm).  Nothing was lined, and everything showed.  I only wore this in private settings, or in places where nobody would care (nude beach).  It was a lot of fun to wear, was extremely sexy and looked like something from a Sports Illustrated layout, but was incredibly uncomfortable.  The fishnet would dig into my skin, the overall design was too risque for most places, and  so I would put in position #3 -- the worst one I own.  The third one is more of a G-string style suspender thong.  Shoulder and but straps are only about 1/2 inch (12 mm) wide.  There is no way this suit can consistently keep things covered in front.  It is sexy as hell -- I just wear it with the straps on either the outside or inside of both breats.  For me the outside method pushed my "C" cup boobs together, making them seem fuller by creating a better crevice between them.  Wearing the straps between the breasts presses them away from beach other.  In any event this would be my second most favorite suspender thong.   I can totally understand why some people would not like to wear one of these contraptions.  They are different and do take some getting used to.  Like thongs, they are an acquired look that some people will never like, some will embrace immediately, and some will try again and again at selected places before building the confidence to wear them on public beaches or at public pools.

For women there are really two types of suspender thong: Ones that attempt to cover the breasts and the g-string type that make no attempt to cover the top at all. The latter often being paired with a separate top. This helps keep everything in place. Here is an example: https://www.amazon.com/BODYZONE-Apparel-Womens-Suspender-Turquoise/dp/B01D92FAUA
