We show that a cosmic string associated with spontaneous $U(1)_R$ symmetry<br />
breaking gives a constraint for supersymmetric model building. In some models,<br />
the string can be viewed as a tube-like domain wall with a winding number<br />
interpolating a false vacuum and a true vacuum. Such string causes<br />
inhomogeneous decay of the false vacuum to the true vacuum via rapid expansion<br />
of the radius of the tube and hence its formation would be inconsistent with<br />
the present Universe. However, we demonstrate that there exist metastable<br />
solutions which do not expand rapidly. Furthermore, when the true vacua are<br />
degenerate, the structure inside the tube becomes involved. As an example, we<br />
show a &quot;bamboo&quot;-like solution, which suggests a possibility observing an<br />
information of true vacua from outside of the tube through the shape and the<br />
tension of the tube.
