Addicted to novelty since 2001

Backless Lingerie

Because, frankly, there hasn’t been enough talk of underwear on this site.

Podgadget features the latest in a series of alternative undergarments (NuBra, some Japanese butt bra, etc):

Fashionistas from Vogue to Cosmo agree–visible thongs, once popular thanks to Christina Aguilera and Pink, are a thing of the past. Though the jeans keep getting lower, it’s no longer cool to flaunt those g-strings. What’s next?

I’m a kind of anti-fasionista myself, but I never thought it was cool to, uh, flaunt those g-strings. Hence, perjorative (thought evocative) terms like ‘whale tail’. Was there a short period of visible-thong-equals-coolness that I missed?

    Sure. Right after it was “cool” (for varying definitions of cool) for boys to have their underwear hanging out of their pants.

    Hence the rise of low rise jeans. I mean, uh, the popularity.

    I think people are confusing “coolness” with just plain sexy.

    I’m sure something could be written here about the visible thong being a reaction to the increasingly oppressive New Moral Guard…

    Of course, when looking at the picture of these, the irony strikes me that the whole reason most women give for wearing a thong in the first place is to prevent panty lines around the upper thighs. . . . Um, oops. What’s next, solving the lack-of-acceleration problem in environmentally friendly electric cars by making them gas-powered?
