Hi, few years ago when I was single I used to go to gym very often and be in shape but after got married I started to get a mammoth belly until got out of control from 170 pounds went to 251 and size 42 and stop thonging for me to wear a thong you need to have the body to. A thong is a very sexy underwear or swimwear and in my opinion you need a sexy or fit body to wear it at least in public.

Right now I got to 206 and size 36 so after dropping 45 pounds and still counting I have set goal to be 178 by early march I already ordered some Skinz swimsuits and reserved one week at south beach to celebrate my back in shape but I have the question if people thong in public places overweight or not? I dont do it.

I don't think I would thong in public if I was overweight, however I admire the courage of an overweight man or woman who wears a thong in public....
Although I admire their attitude, I also feel sorry for their health because of all the risks factors that come with being overweight.
But that's only me, I think that unfortunately most people would not share my admiration for an overweight man or woman wearing a thong on the beach;   that reinforces my respect for them.
I hope you can at least keep your size 36 and not give up on achieving your goal of 178;   exercise is the best metabolism booster, also small meals more frequently, rather than big meals infrequently,  have you noticed the sumo wrestlers?,  they eat a lot only once a day.
Not missing a workout is critical;  not as much because of the workout missed, but for the psychological side of slowly giving up.....  if you miss a workout you need to have a good reason to do so,   even just hitting the gym and use the bicycle for only 10 minutes will do for your mind to overcome the temptation of giving up in the future when the enthusiasm is not at its best.  Having a training partner is also a good idea,  your wife, girlfriend or partner, even walking the dog can help.
And yes, perhaps the best incentive of all is to keep the image on your mind of yourself looking your best and be able to pull off a thong in public

Erik3000.......... Congrats on your weight loss and change of life style, your doing really well, keep up the good work and I'm sure you will achieve your goal. 
2-3 lbs a week, that is the perfect rate, steady weight loss is the most healthy and you are less likely to put it back on again, crash "diets" don't work in my opinion. 


After my divorce I went off the rails a little and piled on the weight, I went from a 34 at 182 lbs to a 38 at 230 lbs. It didn't stop me wearing a thong but I only really wore them in the privacy of my own back garden, I'm like John Howard, I don't have a problem with larger guys or girls wearing a thong in public, I too admire their courage, I personally won't wear one myself if I'm carrying a little weight. 

It was a GF that set me on the right track, she LOVED my thong wearing but was not keen on my size,  She was a beautiful Brazilian girl into her thongs as well, there was nothing more I wanted to do than go thonging with her, she bought me a Joe Snyder Rio and said when I'd lost a few pounds we'd hit the park together, she bought one of those hoops that display underwear and hung it in the bedroom, a constant reminder of my goal....... It worked a treat, unfortunately that summer was rubbish weather and we had to wait till the following spring, by then I'd been hitting the gym HARD and was a 32 at 185 lbs needless to say she loved my JS look!!! 

So there you go, pin one of your new Skinz suits up have it as a reminded of your goal, I'm sure your wife won't mind, a leaner fitter you can only be a good thing, 
I can't tell you the confidence you will feel when you hit the beach a new lean you, if your anything like me, you will walk tall and be proud of what you are wearing and how you look. It has been my incentive to stay in shape ever since!! 

Good luck.

      Currently I'm in the overweight category and I still wear my thongs in public but I don't like the way I look.   Most people will say to me that my body can carry the extra pounds, but I know and feel the difference.  I stand at 6 ft. 5 in. and now tip the scales at 282 lbs.  I have been an athelete all of my life, so working out and stay in shape has always been part of my life until I turned 40.  Then life happened, like kids, job, old sports injuries and other distractions to make up excuses for not being able to find time to workout or at least do something exercise related during the day.    I currently made a pledge to my wife to get back into shape. Notice, I did not say New Years Resolution, they never work.  I know that I will never get back to my college football weight of 230 lbs but I think that I can reach a goal of 250 during  summer of 2013.  My waist is 42 in. and I'm shooting for getting down to 38 in.  I'm doing hot yoga 4 times a week and walking 2 miles with my german shepard on a daily basis.  I'm planning to join a cross fit gym in my neighborhood.  This is one of those gyms that incorporates crossing training techniques like lifting, cardio, and changing up exercise routines.  We I was young weight was never a problem, now that I'm 55 dropping extra weight is more work than I want to admit.  I also have to cut out the midnight snacks and cut down on my beer consumption.

 Not over weight so I can't honestly answer this question, but I have seen plenty of over weight people in thongs on beaches though

 Overweight or not. Thongs are undergarments for worn by whoever wants to wear them.  I can understand the issue of health.  Still, what we all must realize beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I am a 38 in the waist line with a gut.  As far as I am concern I look great in a thong or g-string and I wear them most of the time.  The beach is no exception.  Do you I always say.

Paul, thank you a lot. I can tell you that I feel a lot better. This month all my friends were telling me to give them the diet some girls even asked me to talk to their husband. My 36 jeans were so loose that I can pull it down without unzipping and that is giving me a lot of confidence I even tried some of my Skinz L size and they fit me I purchased 4 medium size and ordered 4 customs for vacations on march at south beach my goal is to fit in M by march.  Congrats also on your weight loss, Im jealous but dont worry, im going to make it.

John, Im swimming 4 times per week on my backyard and my 10 year old neighbor watches me every time as witness that im doing my workout the water is a little cold but I still work out and my diet is rigid no small meals just 2 shakes and a dinner. I cheat sometimes...

zaam and daddy I wish to have the guts of wearing a thong overweight, I admire your self stem but for me needs to be 32-34 to go to the beach and sport a thong.

 I think people need to do what is best for them. But for me being body conscious if I were overweight I might confirm my thronging to more private areas.  Since the idea is to get some sun you can accomplish that without being overly concerned without offending others sensibilities.
Now if a person is overweight with a side order of exhibitionism, that could be a problem.

 I am slightly over weight. I'm 6' 3" and I weight about 220 lbs. I wear thong underwear everyday and have for about 6 months now. I have never worn a thong to the beach or pool, and I am not extremely comfortable with someone seeing me in them. But, I love the way they fit and feel. Too me that is all that matters. as long as I am comfortable on a daily basis, that's what I shoot for.

Everybody who likes to wear thongs, should wear them in my opinion.
If a was overweighted I wouldn't wear thongs anymore. Thongs just don't look nice on overweighted people (males and females).
For me liking thongs is a drive to work out and try to stay in shape.
The moment I look in the mirror and think I look awfull in a thong I will quit thonging (I think....)

 Thong247 thanks that gives me strength to thong at south beach it is going to be on march and now 204 and 5"11. It is getting hard to keep loosing weight at the ratio that I had a few months back but I will try to get as close as 190.

sixfive agree with you If I can't make it may be haulover will be a good consolation prize...   Navy, that was exactly what happens to me and now im trying to get back in track.

You don't seem overweight, in general when men gain weight they gain more belly fat than general fat, most of the time you can pull off a belly fat and still rock a thong. The good thing is that you're trying to get back in shape and that's good cause it builds more confidence in you to keep on thonging. Keep on training that you can achieve your goal. You're still young and you must take advantage of your metabolism to get back in shape.Good luck my friend.

I have been slightly overweight (correcting that now) and have stil worn a thong or less. As I get older, my body is not quite the specimen that it once was. For me, being overweight is more of a health and self-image issue than a looks or not wear a thong issue.
I admire those that are overweight and still wear a thong, while at the same time i have negative thoughts regarding their impending medical problems and the resultant costs that we must all share.

I'm not overweight, but I also don't have anywhere near a perfect or ideal body. While seeing a fit and good looking individual in a thong is certainly more arousing, I have to say that I find it refreshing to see people who "shouldn't be wearing that suit" unabashedly rocking what they enjoy and feel comfortable in. It's a reminder that its just a garment, not an indication of one's sexual prowess or level of perceived hotness.

 Smxthonger... Contrary to what you may think you really have a very nice body for thongs or less.  You don't have to be so modest. Besides your pics look great and tell the story that you've got quite a thong worthy body.

I wear thongs and strings because they are comfortable. And I feel comfortable in it when I'm at the beach. I'm just inside the green bracket of the BMI-chart. With the amount of food I take in and with walking/biking I can keep my weight. And I don't keep my weight for estetics but for being able to put socks and shoes on without a belly in the way. And I feel better in my movements with a certain weight.If for some reason my weight will creep up I still will wear a thong to the beach.

Wear what you want, regardless of society's norms or ideals. You live this life for you first.

I recall being at Haulover and seeing 3 quite large women all in thongs. They were having a blast together enjoying the sun and surf and even though they were nor our culture's ideal of beauty, I thought they were totally awesome and beautiful in their joie de vivre and uninhibited display of confidence.

I'm 55 and over the last 10 years my waistline has has gone from a 32 at 170 lbs to a 36 at 200 lbs. So far is hasn't slowed me down at beaches where I go nude or thonging.  Would I like to back at a 32 or even 34 waist?  Hell yeah, I would but I'm not going to kill myself over it or stop nude/nearly recreation. 
Last year after getting back into running I was back to 180.  It felt good and I felt I was on the right track.... unfortunately at a Warrior Dash race I broke my leg and sprained an ankle.  Needless to say the weight returned. The ankle is still recovering and I'm back at 200 but it won't stop me from going nude or thonged when Patricia and I go to Jamacia in a few months. 
A little body acceptance goes a long way.

 I agree with thong_jock in principal. Everyone should wear whatever they want, no matter what anyone thinks.

However, I'm a bit overweight myself and I'm not confident enough to thong in public. I'd have no problems doing it, but I'm sure as heck not going to do it unless I feel comfortable. So I'm using that as a goal to work toward. But for now, it's the backyard or under pants lol.

I'm a bit overweight and I like to wear my thong, I'm 5'7" 185lbs with a 42" waist, mostly pretty muscular except for a bit of a pot belly. I think both the belly and the thong look good on me, I feel more confident and have a better body image now than when I was 10 or 20 pounds lighter. My wife seems to be ok with it, she didn't suggest to slow down or anything... lol

Yeah, I am overweight and I know that I have to lose weight. But at the same time, I'm not afraid to sport a thong in public. I'm 6'1" 240lbs now. I was 260lbs at the start of this year. I'm aiming for 200lbs. For the guys who are losing weight, I have a question for y'all. Are you able to keep your booty? I want to keep my booty, but it's shrinking.

Confidence is the key, you can look good or bad in a thong at any shape or size. Good to see that people that carry some weight still wear thongs.

At my height/weight nothing looks good, so I might as well be comfortable, and nothing is my preference. Skimpy where necessary, bored shorts at other times to keep the wife happy.

You should wear what you are comfortable with and that is acceptable at the particular venue you are at. This will vary significantly from location to location. Weight should not be a factor in the decision of what to wear. Being overweight should be treated as a health issue, not a sartorial issue.

Too bad more ladies don’t feel that way. From what I’ve seen and read about, lots of women gain a few pounds and think their days in a bikini are over. One of the sexiest women I saw this summer was a lady who was about 9 months pregnant rocking a very cheeky bikini. Some of the slightly more padded girls would have benefited from the more flattering cut of thongs and cheeky suits rather than the granny or even worse swim dress style suits they wore.

here's something to think about: who are you thonging for? yourself or the public? is it intended to be a fashion show or something you do because you enjoy it? i understand public scrutiny but people scrutinize everything. you may be scrutinized for a minute but they will move on.

I side with the folks that say we should wear what feels comfortable despite body shape and age.  I come from a nudist perspective though, where body acceptance is the norm;.  Nudists  come in all shapes and sizes.  I like to wear thong swimwear when I can't be nude, because it's way more comfortable when swimming and sunning.  I don't wear thong underwear, it just isn't that comfortable to me.  So I differ from some of the folks whose main goal in thonging is showing off their own bod, and they find offence in someone who doesn't please their eyes.  On nudist websites we frequently discuss nudism vs exhibitionism.  I think that the same dilemma applies to those who wear thongs and other minimalist gear.
