Also, many thong styles from Europe aren't available in the US - the same is true the other way around.
Thongs are light and easily delivered - most of the merchants on this site deliver internationally to your door.

When you are buying thongs online from Europe or the UK - you'll see that the quoted price is actually more than you get charged. This is because of the sales tax that is often included in the price (which you need to check) - but is deducted if the item is exported.
For instance, UK sales tax is 17.5% - so if you are in the US and buy from a UK store, they will deduct 17.5% of the price.
European taxes are generally 13%.
Be aware though that your purchase may incur duty when it is landed in your country - this will be invoiced to you - but it certainly won't be very much.
Firstly, all of the merchants who sell thongs, that we recommend either use SSL encryption, or their transactions are carried out by a third party service provider. What encryption basically means is that your details become unreadable over the internet to anyone but the merchant. So you needn't worry about your details being intercepted and used.
Secondly, if there is a problem of any sort involving a card, then you just refer to your card company who will request the merchant to provide proof (i.e. a signature) that you authorized use of the card, or took delivery of goods. If they can't provide that proof, then your card will be credited and it will be charged back from the merchant.
So, as you can see there is very little risk involved.
