Mensagem: 

For tanga, I have heard tanga and thong.

 

For fio dental, I have heard dental floss.

 

For sunga, I have heard speedo.  Speedo is a brandname of minimal swimming trunks for male competitive swimmers.  Are they they same as sungas?  Probably not, but they are close. 

 

A g-string is not generally associated with swimwear.  It is usually associated with stripteasers, strippers, etc.  The fact that they are often made from leather indicates they are not meant to wear in the water.
