When purchasing leggings, one must always check the level of transparency. You want support and cover, but comfort is key and exposure is often not the intention.
However, a pair of leggings from Rihanna’s Savage X Fenty range has left shoppers divided and confused because it seems, in this case, exposure is the purpose.
The leggings, which come in lilac, appear to be a standard design from the front but the back is a different story.
Otherwise known as the ‘soft mesh open-back crotchless leggings,’ the item features a strappy lace trim opening that will make top of your bum visible.
The leggings came under the spotlight following a viral TikTok that didn’t quite understand the point of the garment.
User @fathermarge shared her thoughts in a video that has now been viewed over 3.3 million times.
‘OK so I was on Fabletics to see this month’s outfits because I had a credit to use…ummm…can someone at Fabletics tell me what this is?’ she said. ‘Things are getting a little bit crazy.’
Those in the comments were equally confused.
‘That can’t be real,’ wrote one viewer.
‘How are these a thing,’ added another.
Nevertheless, some were impressed by the design.
‘It’s a vent. It’s called fashion sweeties. Look it up,’ replied one sassy follower.
‘No way. I need that,’ proclaimed another.
The original poster later confirmed that the original video was a joke and the reference to Fabletics was made in jest.
And as the leggings are from the Savage X Fenty range – which produces lingerie – it’s clear they are for at-home lounging purposes and not for gym or outdoor use.
The description says: ‘For the cozy night in. Our Soft Mesh Open-Back Crotchless Legging features sheer soft mesh fabric that provides a comfortable fit and an open strappy back for a playful surprise.’
The leggings now retail at $49.99 (£35) or $19.98 (£14) for VIP members and can be purchased here.
Savage X Fenty has been contacted for comment.
