A bizarre pair of 'open bum' leggings from singer Rihanna's clothing line have left TikTok users in disbelief, with many wondering if they even exist.

Leggings turn heads

The Savage x Fenty leggings appear just like a traditional pair you might see worn at the gym — except, the seat of the garment is almost entirely missing, save for a criss-cross design.

An image of the leggings was uploaded in a video by a user called @fathermarge, who was completely flabbergasted by the revealing style.

On the brand's website, the 'Soft Mesh Open-Back Crotchless Legging' ($68.50) is described as offering a 'comfortable fit' with an 'open strappy back for a playful surprise'.

Elsewhere on the site are some leggings that are arguably even more risqué. The 'Bohemian Paisley Open-Back Legging' ($68.50) is not only sheer but the derrière is completely open to the elements.

No straps. Just bare cheeks and the fresh breeze.

'Not squat-proof'

The reaction from fellow TikTok users was mixed, with some on board with the peek-a-boo pants while others wondered how the concept was given the green light.

"I see no issue," commented a user.

"Can't wait to start seeing these in the gym," added another.

"Definitely not squat-proof," quipped one, while another wondered, "How did that get approved?"

"Literally looks like someone edited this," said a skeptic.

If you're looking for a tad more coverage then you might consider the 'Forever Savage Jersey Legging' ($68.50) which features a fully covered rear.
