What is a butterfly thong?

A butterfly thong leaves most of your buttocks exposed, while your groin area is completely covered. This cheeky butterfly shape is super flattering and creates a perky bum effect.

A butterfly thong is perfect for drawing all attention to your gorgeous curves. Your buttocks become the eye-catcher in this thong shape. The name butterfly comes from the shape of the back, which looks like butterfly wings. If you are looking for a little less revealing shape, try the butterfly briefs. This shape of the back is similar, but the butterfly briefs cover a bit more of your buttocks. Discover all of our butterfly thongs at our online marlies dekkers shop and find the perfect panties.
