Women’s water polo is a sport that has existed since the late 1800s. Since its inception, there have been numerous changes to the sport. Players used to use a wooden ball before switching to a plastic one in 1935. There have also been some changes to uniforms, like the introduction of tube suits in 1965. However, one common element of the sport remains: players must wear thongs on their suits. While players may not like it, outfits for the most part have stayed the same over time because there is no need for change or improvement. And as so it seems with thongs as well, as they haven’t changed much since their creation either. So why are women’s water polo suits thongs?
The Brief History of The Women’s Water Polo Thong
The world of women’s water polo is a relatively small one, but it has not always been this way. In fact, it was only in the 1990s that women were allowed to compete in the Olympics as equals with men, and even then, it was only because of Title IX and the US government’s desire to promote gender equality in sports. But before this time, women weren’t even allowed to play water polo at all.
It wasn’t until the mid-1980s that women’s water polo began to take off as a sport. The first international competition for women’s water polo was held in 1982 in Guayaquil, Ecuador. That same year also saw the formation of FINA’s Women’s Water Polo Committee. At first, there were only two teams competing – Italy and the United States – but by 1985 there were 10 teams participating. By 1987 there were 24 teams participating and this number continued to grow throughout the 1990s as more countries began to recognize how popular water polo was becoming among female athletes.
The first thong was designed in 1946 by engineer and inventor Bruce J. Sanders, who believed the design would be more comfortable than regular underwear. It wasn’t until 1955 that the thong was officially introduced to the world, when Hollywood star Jayne Mansfield wore one during a photoshoot.
The Thong Is Not Popular Among Everyone in The Sport
Water polo is a team sport played in the water. It’s a fast-paced, rough and tumble game. Water polo suits are made to help players perform at their peak while keeping them safe from injury or discomfort. The suit is tight-fitting and covers only the shoulders, arms and legs. Water polo suits are traditionally made from neoprene, a material that provides warmth and flexibility. However, some players prefer thong-style suits because they feel more comfortable when swimming.
- The Thong Is Not Popular Among Everyone in The Sport
The thong style has its fans but there are also those who dislike it for many reasons. Some people find it too revealing so they prefer to wear traditional suits with shorts underneath them instead of wearing just briefs as is required by most competitions’ rules. Other people say that a thong feels more comfortable than other styles because it doesn’t constrict movement when you’re playing in cold water outdoors during winter months when temperatures can drop below freezing point or after playing in hot gyms during summer months when temperatures soar over 100 degrees Fahrenheit (38°C).
Thongs are a lot more comfortable than many think.
The main reason women wear thongs is because they are more comfortable and thus, they can wear them all day long without feeling as though they have to constantly adjust them. Thongs also do not have an elastic band that can chafe or dig into the skin after extended periods of wear.
Thong swimsuits are great for those who participate in water sports, such as water polo. The suits allow for freedom of movement and the ability to dive headfirst into the water without losing your suit during play. Thong swimsuits also prevent chafing on sensitive areas like the inner thighs and buttocks areas, which is ideal for those who spend a lot of time in the water playing their favorite sport or simply relaxing on vacation at the beach.
You’re better off without them, regardless of what you think.
If you’re a woman who plays water polo, or any other sport that requires a swimsuit, you might have noticed that there are two types of suits: the one-piece and the thong.
The one-piece is pretty self-explanatory — it goes from your neck to your ankles with no breaks in between. The thong is similar but has a hole down the middle of the back so that your butt cheeks can hang out as much as they want. It’s a little less modest than the one-piece option, which may be why most people prefer it.
But there are some serious problems with wearing thongs for sports like water polo. For one thing, they’re more likely to get damaged during gameplay and will need replacing sooner than their two-piece counterparts (which will also cost more money). They also tend to get very dirty very quickly if they’re not properly cared for between games — and this kind of dirtiness can lead to yeast infections if it’s left unchecked (not pleasant).
If You Do Want To Wear A Thong, You Better Be Ready To Talk About It
If you’re an athlete, you know that a sports bra is an essential part of your wardrobe. But if you’re a woman, there’s another piece of equipment that can make all the difference: water polo suits (or wetsuits).
There are many different types of wetsuits, but most have the same purpose: to keep swimmers warm and comfortable while they’re in the water. But some women prefer thongs over traditional full-coverage suits.
Thongs and G-strings are commonly worn by female water polo players. From a performance aspect, they can be more advantageous because they reduce drag and create more power in the pool. They have also been known to minimize bruises and scrapes on the thighs, which is why most women, who like their asses to be bruised and scraped, dislike them (from a performance standpoint).
