Scrunch bum gym shorts aren’t a new thing but now the popular look is causing even more of a stir online with nude colour versions sometimes making it look like the person isn’t wearing anything at all.
The leggings, available from Aussie activewear brand ECHT, come in a range of colour tones that can sometimes match the colour of a person’s skin - and it will definitely make you do a double-take.
According to the website, the design is give the wearer a “stylish silhouette”, and plenty of people are sharing their love for the shorts online.
To say there are a few peach emojis being used here or there would be an understatement.
But there were also a few people that commented on some of the posts admitting they thought the look was a little risque.
“I had to take a second glance,” was one comment, while another wrote: “Honestly thought you were naked for a second.”
And it even seems they have that affect in the real world and not just in photos online with another person writing: “My trainer wears these and when she got out of her car once I swear I had to blink for a minute.”
The scrunch bum shorts had already made headlines last month, after Sydney woman Gabi Watson was asked to leave her gym because people thought she was wearing a G-String.
The 27-year-old quickly took to social media to share her experience, and later revealed it was a staff member from the gym who thought her outfit was “inappropriate”.
“Ultimately, the experience was a lesson that not every situation is as it seems,” Gabi wrote in the article for Mamamia.
“It was also a lesson in internalised misogyny. Women often police each other, because we've adopted the views of the patriarchy that our bodies and what we dress them in are public.”
