Internet Chafes at $315 Pair of Denim Panties

March 30, 2019

The Montreal e-tailer Ssense is selling a $315 pair of women's denim panties that can be worn as shorts or underwear. "Denim can be cheeky,” Ssense’s website claims. “These ‘brief-style shorts’ can be worn under or over pants, meaning they’re far more versatile than what you’d traditionally expect from a pair of briefs. Underwear that doesn’t need to stay ‘under there.’” The internet, uh, chafed at the really short shorts, with one Instagram commentator writing, "Two words: yeast infection," while a Twitter user wrote, "Jeans are already uncomfortable. Why on God's good earth would I go and buy underwear made out of denim?"
