From super skimpy bikinis to festival outfits that are more skin than coverage, fashion has taken some unexpected turns this year, but a new look from bold online retailer Oh Polly may beat them all for sheer cheek - literally.
The popular clothing line has wowed shoppers with a new dress that comes with built in underwear - and if that sounds strange, hold your judgement because you’re going to need them.
The ‘sheer perfection sheer mesh underwired mini dress in white’ has more letters than material, but that didn’t stop the retailer’s fans from flocking to the unusual look.
Featuring the titular underwired top section in completely sheer white fabric, the potential wearer’s modesty is preserved by an in-built pair of high-waisted underwear that goes under a sheer, figure hugging mini skirt.
The dress is advertised as being 84 cm in length, with an invisible zipper and adjustable straps, and has sparked something of a frenzy online.
Posted to social media as part of a giveaway alongside a more opaque number, it was the ‘sheer perfection sheer mesh underwired mini dress in white’ that had fans going crazy.
“Can I just buy the one on the left or do I have to win it,” one keen shopper wanted to know.
“The one on the left!!” another gushed next to a love heart emoji.
“These dresses are so prettyyyyy,” another wrote.
The dress sparked such a passionate response that the black version has completely sold out, and the white is down to a few left in stock in a size four or 14.
No word yet on whether the number will make a comeback, but it’s not the first unusual outfit to be embraced with open arms online.
Earlier in the year, a topless jacket from Fashion Nova divided, but ultimately conquered online shoppers, though a pair of see-through pants from Pretty Little Thing didn’t fare so well with the cling-wrap-like look still more than available online.
