Girlfriend and I are going to be staying on South Beach in a few weeks. We hadn't really planned this trip and she hadn't ordered thongs/g-strings. Most online vendors have limited availability/options this late in the season. Suggestions on where to go to shop when we get there (she really isn't looking for tops/bottoms...just black thongs and strings...no top needed)? I don't want to spend a lot of time shopping. We are staying at Raleigh Hotel and will both be wearing thongs/g-strings. Will report back on the board after our return.

I got some 491s and some 456 (looks like they are discontinuing the 456). I have a few 457 left but I don't think I will be selling them, I only have a few others that I should sell soon, not sure if she'd be interested in those.

491.....isnt that a bit conservative for you?

Sorry to hear about the 456, those are michelles favorites.  They are skimpy enough to be hot, but still approriate enough to wear on any public beach.  She wears them at the New Jersey shore all the time.  Guess we may have to order some.

To get back to your original question, I don't know of any real good swimwear stores in South Beach. There used to be one in Bal Harbour, but it closed a few years ago. There are a few manufacturers outlets and a Ritchie swimwear, but they don't sell many, if any, of the type of thongs and g-string available from the likes of WW or Alphamoda. If you are concerned by the time for shipping from out of the country, try Skinz.

Have just returned from my holiday in Flroida - South Beach and Fantasy Fest. I only managed to get 3 days on South Beach, I planned to go again for 3 days at the end of my holiday but the weather was so poor the beach was unusable. Unfortunately I have to agree with the posts that g-string wearers are down in numbers. I only saw one this time - a very pretty young blond in a turquoise very small y-back, topless with bars through her nipples. I did however while I was admiring her get to see a woman wearing a purple very high cut thong back swimsuit, the first one I have seen on a beach in maybe 10 years and still one of only a handfull I have ever seen. I saw her the next day walking the shore with her husband. The bulk of the thongs I saw were on South  Americans and the cut they tend to favor where the triangle at the back is quite broad. Saw another white girl in a very small black elastic sided thong and a handful of others. I thought the number of topless women was about the same as last year I went. Me, I wore either my tie side G or my blue Skinz y-back and G'd at the bottom of South beach or towards the top where the hotels line the shore. I only saw two other male thongers. I didn't get any grief but had my photo taken once by a couple of girls when I was coming out the water. Good holiday all in all.

Has anyone been to this rooftop deck at the Delano?  is it private or open to all at the hotel?  Looks like one could enjoy a relaxed dress code up there.  you've got a shower, loungers and a good view.  Reminds me of one Nude sunbathing deck on one of the southbeach hotels.

Another beautiful day in paradise! Went out today with some literature that I needed to read in a small pablosan sling. Settled in about 14th and spent a while reading. I then walked down to about 2nd street and laid out again. There were a lot of topless women around and a number of thongs as well. On my way I noticed two other men in g-strings.
Three young ladies from Spain were lying out on chairs not far from me topless. I then noticed that two of them put their tops on and walked towards where I was lying with the chair attendant. They asked to take a picture with me and I agreed. Luckily, I had my camera with me and asked to have the pictures taken with my camera as well (posted one in my images section). They were vacationing from Spain and we spent a while having a great conversation.

I am not an expert on south beach,but my experience is that 5th st has the highest concentration of male and female thongers.  Other than that, you can wear one anywhere on south beach and be totally fine.

Stanpuppy is right. The entire beach area of Miami Beach and all the way north to Ft. Lauderdale.

There is a Brazilian presence in the SoFi area (south of fifth) so typically many females in thongs. The area from fifth to about ninth or tenth is relatively packed with young folks (including thongers) on weekends and tourists during the week. The area by 12th street is predominately gay. From about fifteenth street north to the W and Gaansvoort hotels  (24th) is an area that is mostly more mature and cosmopolitan tourists (many europeans). Further north the number of thongers tends to thin out, but there is no problem wearing thongs or g-strings.

I will be at South Beach in March.  I would love to find a shop where I can acually see and try on bikinis and thongs.  Shopping on the internet is OK but I would love to see and try on before buying something new.  Where would I go in the South Beach area to find such a store that has a good selection for men?

Several of the shops do in fact have thongs for men.  I was around 8'th and Collins a few months ago and did some evening shopping.  The stores are everywhere; the smaller specialty ones seemed to be better bets.  Don't remember any of the names specifically; I simply went in many of them and found that, oh maybe 1 in 3 actually sold thongs and would let you try them on before buying.  Brush up on your Spanish!

I haven't been down to SoBe in a while. It really depends on when your there?? Some times young punks hang out. 5th is right near the inlet, so you may be crowded, as there is a walkway to the beach I suggest more around 15 to 17th. I have thonged there in the past, more European atmosephere behind the Shelborne. Large German tourist hotel. Really if you want quiet, either Thong or Nude, Haulover is the best.

I think that tjmia is correct. The area from about 14th St to the Gansvoort (23rd St) or so is much more cosmopolitan.

All of the beach from Government Cut to Ft. Lauderdale and beyond is fine for thongs or topless.

The area south of fifth is changing as fancy new condos go up. I have found it to be younger but more European.

The area from 5th to 10th is easily accessible from many parking garages and attracts folks from other parts of Miami-Dade. It tends to be more crowded and there are sometimes rather obnoxious young males. The area around 12th st tends to be the gay hangout but is not at all uncomfortable for straight folk.

 I found the stretch of beach around 6th to 7th streets to be great for stringing.  We were there in early January enroute to Barbados.  Got a chaise from Maurice -- a benny of staying at Park Central Hotel on Ocean Drive -- and set up among the throngs at water's edge.  A few stares, of course, but no hassles.  Hit the water a few times.  One middle-aged woman next to me was topless, but we were the most extreme I saw that day.  I wore my boardies when hiking up and down the beach to check things out, though.  I don't put myself on display unnecessarily.  Very comfortable day.

Great news on the beach my wife and i cant wait, she loves to be in a thong and topless and i love wearing minimum swimwear. Anyone know about a spa or wash house that is coed. We like to mingle with other couples possiblie in the nude. We are not swingers just love the nude company. Will be in SOBE from 3 april to 10 april.

About the clothing optional places:  Try Nirvana Spa at Dezerland Hotel 87th and Collins, Try Victor Hotel on South Beach with  a clothing optional coed spa/Hammam, or try The Standard Hotel and Spa on western Miami Beach.  They have a clothing optional hammam for mud bathing/sun bathing, and if you stay there they have "wet" rooms with a bath tub out in front surrounded by semi transparent white curtains--seems like you could bath and sunbath nude --sounds like there's a lot of casual nudity there- heard of frisky couples during the day in their curtain enclosures, in the Hammam and at the pool at nite.  (if you go to the Standard report back several of us would like to know about it-- check out reviews on Tripadvisor.com).

Previous but not lately confirmed Southbeach nude sun decks include : Shelborne Hotel rooftop, Albion ?some suites, Sagamore ? above the pool, penthouse sundeck at the Raleigh Hotel

 Regarding South Beach sun decks, I used the rooftop one at Park Central in my g-string, but definitely not a place for nude use.  Pretty regular folks there who'd surely be offended.

 I was in SoBe by Lumonius Park(s) and saw women jumping out of cars in g-strings a block away from the park and walking there past cops with no hassles and barely (pun intended) any notice. If you have a hot body show it off with a g-string!

Finally warmed up enough this afternoon for me to take a break and hit the beach! The water was too cold for me to go in, however. I wore a tiger Banana Peelz with a piece of leather strap connected to a ring to make sure that I did not look nude.
The area south of fifteenth street was packed with spring breakers. I was somewhat disappointed to find that virtually all of the girls had full back bikinis on and the guys, of course, were wearing dork shorts. It was amazing how conservative everyone was.
Therefore, I headed north and settled in by Lincoln Road. There were a few topless ladies (not college girls) and a girl playing volleyball  in a thong. As I headed North to my favorite refreshment stand around 18th, I noticed four young women walking towards me topless as if it were perfectly natural (ah, life is still good in South Beach). As I passed, I noticed that they were speaking French. Then a couple girls came up to me and asked for a picture, which I happily agreed to. One of the girl's brother got in the picture too and it turned out that the photographer was the mother of two of the girls. She was very complimentary.
After getting my smoothie, I walked up to 25th street and then returned. As I walked south, I was asked to pose with someone (twice by individual girls and twice by a group). This set a record for me for the number of picture requests in a single day! Luckily I had my camera with me and asked them to take a picture with it as well. I will get around to posting one soon in the friends album (there is a severe limitation on the number of pictures that you can post, so I will have to delete one other one to make room).

We just got back from our trip to Miami, it was awesome pics will be up soon. We stayed around 17th and Collins, my wife had no problem going topless as there were many women topless there. The first day there i wore my Skinz fitted bikini and had a few spectators but nobody cared while my wife was topless and thonging the whole day. We did visit halover for one day it was awesome there was another young couple there we took lots of pics with. Cant wait to post them. Thanks everyone for the great info. Cant wait to go back.

Just returned from SouthBeach too.  Stayed at 11th and Ocean at The Str and Hotel again.  The rooftop pool is nice there during the day and heated at night.

On the beach in the four days was there I'd say the number of thongs was steady with last year, and the number of bare bottom type suits on girls was up a little- these include the almost rio and the wider bottom but up the crack style I've seen called "brazilian cut"  In total I'd say most often over 50% of women have almost half their asses tanning, and thongs/g strings are maybe 10-20% in many areas.  topless seems steady to down, and again most topless were in bikinis, and a majority of thong wearing women kept on their tops. I saw a few college age girls wearing pasties, star or flower shaped- I guess they wanted those tanlines?

On the beach I was near a group of four college girls and one was topless, talked two others to take off their tops which she gathered up and put in her beach bag. When she was asking them they didnt have much reason to keep them on- the one said "what we do in Miami stays in Miami". They were wearing brazilan back string bottoms.

On guys I only saw less than 20 guys in four days, only a few other Gstrings.   Saw one couple, he's in a thong bikini and she's in a V string with her top on.

Interestingly most of the girls in G strings and topless had the V string design back- I didn't know it was becoming popular- saw maybe 7 of them.

On the beach a guy wearing a thong or g string and walking around does attract a lot of attention.  Each day I walked nearly from 5th to 25th st..  I heard a few negative comments but most were surprise some delight and some very favorable.  At sometimes there were many people taking pictures.  I posed for pictures with a few women and a couple.  The most favorable was a girl about 22 in a string bikini- blonde and getting tanned- from Sweden, she was with a Miami couple  (she in a tiny bikini too) She was getting her picture taken by the other girl when she stopped me and said I looked "amazing" and kept going on in broken English superlatives.  She said "if I had a body like yours I'd wear a Gstring too". She was very good looking in her bikini I told her and told them they should get her a G string.  I didn't know of any stores around that had them other than Runway on Collins and Lincoln but told them about Dubiobikinis.com  While posing for pictures between the two girls with them feeling up my ass the guy said "make him hard girls" We all laughed when I told them I'd pop right out of my suit (Dore very low cut Gstring)

The hotel pool was nice at night.  I went for a dip a few times after midnight and there wasn't anyone up there. More than once I just slipped out of my transparent thong and skinny dipped.

One other swimwear fashion comment I forgot to make will be welcome to a lot of guys:  It looks like the full boyshort suit for girls is dead.  I think I saw one girl in a bikini top and those full bottom shorts popular a year or two ago.  Now all are in bikinis with full or less backs.  Boyshort thongs are still there- but they're so much smaller than the full boyshorts. 

Interestingly I was at work and talking to one of the recent hires in sales and she was going to Miami soon.  She was telling me that last year while at Southbeach she and her boyfriend were grabbing a burger at Johnny Rockets there on Ocean Drive  after about 6 pm when a group of girls in bikinis without coverups came inside the restaurant and were seated to eat. One of the girls had on a microthong from her description ( and she seems to know a thing or two about thongs it seems) and was seated in a chair on the aisle sitting bare assed on the chair attracting a lot of attention.  Some guys spotted her came in off the street and snapped her picture.  She said I guess everyone else was sort of used to that sort of thing even in a "family" type restaurant.

Today I had a large co-authored paper to review so I threw on a Dubio yellow sling and headed for the beach. I laid out near 16th St and found a good number of topless and thonged ladies around me. After getting through most of the paper, I was thirsty and hungry and decided to walk to my favorite vendor a few blocks north to get a smoothie. As I walked by a large group of women on a bachelorette trip, they called to me and asked me to come by. They told me that they loved my suit and me in it. They described my suit as "definitive South Beach". They wanted pictures and, of course, I obliged. Luckily, I had my camera with me and ask if they minded if we take a picture with mine as well.
Well, this scene repeated itself a few times going to and from the vendor to get my smoothie. As one group got up the nerve to ask, others then ran up to ask to take a picture as well. Seems as if this is bachelorette trip season or something.
When I got back to my spot, I noticed that two awesome looking girls (topless) had rented chairs near me. After I settled in, they came over and told me that they thought that my suit was awesome and would I pose with them. Naturally, I agreed. They were on vacation from Houston.  I finally finished reviewing the paper and (unfortunately) had to leave to input my edits and return the draft. 
What a wonderful working day on the beach! 
I will post some of the pictures on my Flickr site (bmicro2000) soon.

so yesterday we were in South Beach and I was walking my usual "route" after leaving the beach (we usually stay around 9th and when we leave we walk towards 5th on the top part of the beach where the sand is packed better and then walk up to the boardwalk by the road and walk back to our car from there, stopping in a few stores if we want to)
Well as we were going by 7th there was a cop on a ATV that came up to me and said I needed to put a top on, he said if I am laying down on the beach it's OK to be topless but the second I stand up to walk away I need to cover up ...

From what I understand, it's still illegal to be topless when you are not on the beach (i.e., along ocean drive or lincoln drive, etc).  I'm sure the boardwalk would be considered a "grey" area where the police officer's discretion is permitted.  Were you cordial to the officer?  Best thing to do would be to obey the officer, and move along to somewhere else.  If you were on the beach walking the shore, I think the officer would be incorrect.  But better to not argue and just get a warning then get a citation you have to fight in court.

There is a movement to allow full topless in all of Miami, but I'm not familiar with any laws currently being drafted addressing the issue.

http://blogs.miaminewtimes.com/riptide/2010/04/should_miami_beach_allow_ladie.php

Most important thing is to not push it too much - South Beach is by far the best bastion of thong/topless freedom in the US.  I'd be worried that if people started to wear too many exposure suits or push the topless thing into the streets that the Miami police/city council might start to restrict the freedoms we already have!

I was still technically on the beach, just along the part where vendors are and where all the trash cans are lined up, just the more packed sand area (makes it easier to push the stroller) I was not on the boardwalk. And yes I am sure he was a real police officer, he was with other officers and they were arresting/handcuffing someone (appeared to be very drunk) and he basically left the other officers and drove up to us and told me I had to cover up, which I did.

Sounds like a new officer who is a bit uptight. You did the right thing, and presumably took your top off again when you got back to your space on the beach.
I once had had an officer suggest I cover up, only to have another one come over a couple of minutes later and say the first one was wrong, and have a nice day.

actually we were leaving, we were walking on the beach heading towards 5th where we usually take the little pathway to go up to the boardwalk and street area, he stopped me a few streets away from 5th and asked me to cover up which I did (I usually put my top back on when I get to the showers after I wash the sand off of my body) so I just kept my top on from there since we were almost at 5th street anyway, I just thought it was weird. Also earlier the man that rents the umbrellas wouldn't let us stay at the umbrella we had picked because we didn't want to chairs, the umbrella he wanted us to take was much further down (we usually stay near the lifeguard tower) so we just didn't rent an umbrella, but that was weird too because they usually never have a problem renting us just the umbrella and moving the chairs ... oh well, his loss !

On the packed sand that's news to me. 

One interesting thing is since running over two sunbathers on the soft sand (and I think killing one) the cops are forbidden to drive anything onto the soft sand even in pursuit of a running robbery suspect....so with that said it looks like you came to them.  The lifeguards aren't supposed to go over walking speed on the ATVs on the sand either.  "the second you stand up"--what kind of discretionary rule is that??

these guys definitely drove onto the soft area of the sand as they were near a lifeguard station before he started driving to meet up with me. I don't mind I just think it was weird and a one time thing, next time I'm told to cover up I'll just go to other beaches closer to me !
here are two pics my husband took a few minutes before that cop asked me to put my top back on

I have heard it said that topless in Miami is not technically legal, it's just a law that's never been enforced.  I would contact the chief of police and ask if there has been some sort of change in policy.  If not, then I don't know what the problem is -- maybe the cop that told you not to be topless is new or transferred in from someplace else.

Also, the flickr pics are dead now.

JM has it right. Something must have been up with this cop as it is certainly not illegal to be topless on Miami Beach. I have seen too many cop cars drive by topless women on Ocean Drive or Collins Ave. for that to be true.
I don't know of any laws against toplessness in Miami (another jurisdiction). The only beach in Miami proper (Virginia Key) is certainly topless and g-string friendly and the rest is urban area which would be rather uncomfortable topless or in only a g-string.

Maybe it was an excuse for him to get a better look.

Eimeo were without a top in shorts when leaving?  Maybe he thought: shorts and no top=topless , thong and no top=topfree

I think getting a better look is an idea, as I said they can't go down on the soft sand beach anymore.
