I have several...the biggest right now is back and bottom showing....I recently went to a football game and the guy in front of me was showing me at least 5 inches of butt!  I really don't ever want to see a "tramp stamp" or "whale tail" but I really really don't want to see your crack or cheeks.  That is what belts, underwear, and camisoles are for...pick one and roll with it!
