Long gone are the days when society would expect women to cover up with ankle-length skirts – now it seems it’s all about getting them to bare as much flesh as possible.
We’ve already had C-strings and Shibues in the bizarre quest to make women’s underwear smaller and smaller.
Now lingerie doesn’t even look like lingerie anymore with the invention of this ‘Unwrap Me’ body bow.
It’s basically just a large ribbon women can wrap around themselves in a feeble attempt to cover up.
The idea is that their partner can then ‘unwrap’ them, but it doesn’t exactly look the most comfortable.
Can’t we all just wear onesies to bed?
The bright side is it’s made from ‘silky, satin fabric’ so will feel good against your skin – and you can wrap it in a variety of ways to mix things up a bit.
If you do fancy wrapping yourself in a body bow, they’re available on the ASOS website at a cost of 35 Australian Dollars (that’s about £20.40).
Or you could just get a ribbon and do it yourself.
Earlier this year ‘Shibue’ underwear went viral for its minimalistic design.
What is it? A strapless undergarment held in place with adhesive gel.
It’s the gel which apparently makes the Shibue a comfier alternative to the C-string, which uses a wire which nestles between your bumcheeks to keep it in place.
Although they still don’t look like the sort of thing you’d want to spend a lazy Sunday slobbing on the couch in.
Who’s using it, and why should I wear one?
According to the Shibue website – plenty of people are sporting the diminutive garment.
“Shibues are being worn in the movies, TV, red carpet and even on the runway, and now they’re available for everyday!”
And as for why you ditch your granny-pants in favour of these, they leave, “nothing but a smooth, clean silhouette on your sides.”
How much will one set me back?
The Shibue is not cheap. One will set you back £13. But they can be packed away and saved for you next red-carpet venture.
“When you are not wearing your Shibues, a storage liner is supplied to protect the adhesive the panty.”
