The full rear looks great for public beaches, and gives the front a sexy super-low "slingshot" Y-front look with no gaps on the sides if you wear it as low in front as possible. Front lined for a strong, snug, smooth flat look. The fabric has enough stretch for all-day comfort without a bulge or sag. I wear it in the ocean surf as the full rear and drawstring easily keep it on me as the cold water makes me shrink to fit it in it even better. Same design as the Nu Yo, read those reviews for a description. Size 2XL fits my 39" hips and Italian-American goods perfectly for both suits. I posted pictures wearing these suits in the Private Gallery, I like them that much.
