It feels so good that I wear it as underwear, in addition to when I am sunning myself. It barely covers the shaft and shows plenty of ass, really sexy. This was my first Mate purchase. It got me so excited in every sense of the word that I immediately ordered a Mi Jung Xtra low super bikini. This sits a little higher at the rear (but still reveals part of the crack) and can be worn comfortably on almost any European public beach. I love it too.
