    I know there were popular in the 70s, but wasn't that to loosen the fitting around the area to make it roomy or something? I know those were very popular to all age groups when we were growing up and that kind of did went into effect in the 80s-90s, but that was like a belt around the crotch region, correct? Curious to know.....for those that remembered these things. I am sure we had grandpa and grandma telling us "Well, back in my days....we worn things that didn't look like the ones you are wearing now!" But, anyway....just wondering about that.

    it was a tie like sweat have to make the waist snug...the elastic/lycras have evolved so i don't think they have it any more on most bikini styles
