I'm seeking to conduct some (very) informal research on the topic and wonder what are some of the many reasons that women and girls wear thong underwear and/or swimwear.

I'm seeking serious answers from those with firsthand experience, not a "well they must be..." or "I would never..." or the like. To assist with demographic classification, also please include age or age range in answers.

Surveys consistently put the female thong-wearing population at 28%. This means that for every 100 female readers of this question, 28 are likely to be wearing thongs at the time. 2,800 women and girls for every 10,000 female readers. That said, this question should have garnered many answers.
