What is a tanga?

The tanga is a revealing underwear item which leaves little to the imagination. A small triangle of fabric in the front reveals the tummy and a strap that connects to the back exposes most of your buttocks and hips. This super sexy shape shows of your feminine curves.

The difference between a tanga and a thong is the sides. The sides of a thong can vary between 2 to 7 cm, whereas a tanga connects the front and back of the panties with thin strings. A tanga exposes more of your hips than a thong does. Discover all of our tangas at our online marlies dekkers shop and find the perfect panties.
