Why???

Apparently these are THE thing in Japan at the moment. Nope, the skirts are not see-through... the image is printed onto the fabric to look like they are!


Why?....why would you want to walk around pretending your bum is on display? (God, I hope they don't catch on over here!! *shudders*)

So you know what I think but what about you? Will you be rushing out to buy one?

I love this, made me laugh out loud. I would soooo like to see someone at the local market in this................

Janice said...

Okay - so here's what I'm wondering, in larger sizes, the bums would have to get proportionately larger... wouldn't they? So do the bigger ones come complete with dimples and cellulite...? It just doesn't bear thinking about!

ladyfi said...

Ha ha! I remember posting about this back in 2008. According to Snopes, this is NOT really a new fashion trend, but a fake kind of picture that you can mainly find in Japanese porn magazines!

Sorry - it's back to the treadmill for us... ;-)

Boonsong said...

I won't be rushing out to buy one. No. But after the operation, who knows.....?....

Have a nice day, from Boonsong (Mr - until further notice)

An easy way of getting the slimming effects liposuction, without the sludge?

Can't see it taking off in Lymington, although who knows....

Carol said...

Rosie - I think I would be traumatised if I saw someone wearing on of these in the supermarket!! Glad I made you laugh though :-)

Janice - LOL!! That's exactly what popped into my head when I saw the pictures...closley followed by the question 'how would you deal with fake tan?' would there be a range from normal colour to satsuma *snigger*

LadyFi - LOL...and here was me thinking I was bang on the trend :-). I was rather relieved to read your comment....

Boonsong - That comment was hillarious...you had better warn Mrs Boonsong!!

Carol said...

JJ - You managed to sneak in there!

You are totally right, it would definitely be better than liposuction but I can't help but feel it would be a bit like the wonder bra...take off the bra and your partner wonders where your boobs went...take of your skirt and they would wonder where the pert bottom went!

one might equally ask why the Japanese like mayonnaise milkshakes...

Queenie said...

I would not be rushing out to buy one of these, myself. But I would be unable to stop staring if I saw someone wearing one. What do the fronts look like???

TALON said...

Okay, I'm speechless. No thank you! This takes perversion to a whole new level.

Queenie's comment is cracking me up (no pun intended)!

Ayak said...

Nooooooooooooooo!!

Paula said...

Oh Carol, these shirts really make my day. Finally I have a really good laugh. They are hilarious.
Thanks for the kind comments on the pictures I publish at Beautiful World. I grinned at your commentthat you would love to know what is behind this door...
AN ENTIRE CASTLE
It is the servants entrance at a former royal castle in Bavaria.

trousers said...

I actually love the idea...not so sure I would like to keep seeing it though.

Are you sure, however, that by the act of blogging it, you're not making it more likely to catch on here than before?

Carol said...

Nicky - mayonnaise milkshake? Eeeeewwwww that sounds absolutely revolting!!

Queenie - I nearly spat Tea all over my laptop!! That made me roar with laughter...I had not even thought of that!! (I know what you mean about the not being able to stop staring...I don't think I would be able to either!)

Talon - OMG! I had just recovered from reading Queenie's comment when I got to yours which set me off again.(husband is now looking at me very suspiciously!)

Ayak - I am totally with you there!!

Paula - Welcome and thank you for leaving a comment :-). Hehehe, they made me laugh too...in a slightly horrified manner!

Ha, an entire castle...well, I guess to have doors like that there has to be something pretty impressive behind them :-)

Trousers - Ok, I am now officially worried about you :-)

Aaaaarrrggg, I'd not thought about that!

Blu said...

That is hilarious, I wonder what is on the other side?!!!!...no do not answer that LOL

Best wishes Blu x

cheshire wife said...

Some people will wear anything that they think is fashionable! Even such a crazy idea as this.

Mel said...

<-- requires a warning before posts like this or choking on coffee happens! LOL

The good news is they're not really a fashion trend.
The bad news--Trousers is now depressed and in need of medications. LOLOL

notesfromnadir said...

Thanks for the laugh, but, no, I'll refrain from buying one! :)

Fire Byrd said...

Yuck, nasty!
That almorst left me speechless, and now I am with the thought of mayonaise milkshakes.. eeeeuuuuoooo

Carol said...

Blu - I'm so hoping nothing but a plain skirt...OMG could you imagine *shudders*

Cheshire Wife - Never a truer word was spoken! I have seen plenty of people wearing things that are truely hideous just because they are in 'fashion'. I am happy to say that I have never been one of those people....I know I do not suit lime green or boob tubes!!

Mel - Sorry about that...will make sure I include warnings in future :-)

LOL at your comment about Trousers

Notes from Nadir - Welcome and thank you for leaving a comment :-). Hehehe, they are pretty awful arent they...

Fire Byrd - Yup, nasty is a very good word for them and I know exactly what you mean about the mayo milkshakes...I really can't imagine drinking anything much worse!!

Talli Roland said...

Oh dear Lord! This is craaaazeeee. Why would you walk around like that? On purpose?

Carol said...

Talli - I definitely wouldn't walk around like that!! Never ever ever ever!!

Jennifer said...

LOL Oh my word. What next? Jellybeans that make your farts smell nice? (Oh wait, they came out last month.)

Actually, I wouldn't mind people thinking my bum looks like that...

Carol said...

Jennifer - OMG please tell me that was a joke (about the farts and the Jellybeans)...it's so out there that it's only too possible that someone has gone and done it!!

LOL, I can see where your coming from there :-)

Debs said...

I can't imagine ever wanting to wear something like that on purpose, especially the skirt where it looks like her pants have fallen down!

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

Gosh, I think they would be potential car accidents in the works...I know they might cause one if my hubby saw one. :)

Marilyn said...

Oh this is laugh out loud funny Carol! I can just see someone wearing one of these skirts to church ...I would love to be there to see/hear the reaction ;-)

DJ Kirkby said...

Erm...I don;t think they'd sell them in my size. There is a god after all....

Carol said...

Debs - I know...I could just about cope with the other ones but that one left my mouth hanging open!!

Sharon - Hahaha, I had not even thought of that but you are absolutely right!! I expect Chris wouldn't be able to keep his eyes on the road either if he saw someone walking down the street wearing one!

Marilyn - I'm loving the way your mind works...the thought of someone wearing one to Church actually made me short with laughter!!

DJ - You have a lovely figure my dear so I think they would look fine in your size :-)

LilyS said...

LOL I would love to wear one to the office just for a reaction!! But no I wont be gracing the streets of London in one of these.

Brown Dog said...

Hmmm - I can't really see that catching on in Malmesbury, can you? Well, actually, now I come to think of it, perhaps I can - Abbey House Gardens anyone? Might be a gap in the market.

Carol said...

Lily - That's a wonderful idea...hehehe, it would be very funny to see the reaction it caused!

Brown Dog - LOL...why would they bother with a skirt that looks like that when they happily wonder about in the buff! Can't see anyone else in Malmesbury wondering about in one of them :-)

Lane said...

Eurgh!! That is just ... well... I think it's all been said. And I love Queenie's comment!

HelenMHunt said...

Seriously, seriously not!

Jen said...

Today is a day for laughs! This made my day... I realize how disturbing that is, but I love to see how ridiculously comfortable some people are with showing their butts!!

Jennifer said...

Sorry pal - not joking about the jellybean farts. I blogged about it a month or two ago.

Carol said...

Lane - Hehehe, I loved her comment too!!

Helen - Yup, that was my reaction when I saw them too!!

Jen - *sniggers* I am now officially disturbed. Glad it made you laugh :-)

Jennifer - OMG, I've just been over and read your post....I am utterly speechless!!

Paula said...

Had to return for another good morning grin... GIGGLE

Georgina Dollface said...

Do they make them for men? LOL! Those skirts fooled me into thinking they were real and I thought "Oh no they didn't!" because that would just be so wrong. But now that I know they are just printed on, I think it is hilarious.

Recently some dudes from Vancouver were selling luggage stickers that made it look like your bags had been ripped open, revealing stashed money and drugs. Canadian Border Services was not impressed and the company pulled the stickers off the market. I don't know what kind of idiot would put them on their luggage, because they might as well also wear a sign around their neck that says, "Pick me for a cavity search!" - G
PS. Came over from Boonsong's place. I think I'll stick around. :)

Carol said...

Paula - I know...the photo's make me smile everytime I come here to respond to comments :-)

Georgina Dollface - Welcome and thank you for leaving such a great comment on my blog :-).

Ha, it would be so funny if they made them for men too wouldn't it!! I have to admit that it took me a minute to work out that they were printed and not the...erm...real thing!

OMG re the luggage labels..that was not the brightest thing to do!! Your comment about cavity search really made me laugh..your spot on with it!!

Right, I'm now off to visit you

Previously (Very) Lost in France said...

I saw someone wearing one of these in town today. No, hang on, it really was her knickers showing! A seriously bad look, mind you, if I could have a nicer bum than the one I have now, well, who knows......

Carol said...

Previously Very Lost in France - LOL...for a moment I actually believed you :-).

Oh it's awful when that happens isn't it!! It's only ever happened to me once but I still remember the embarassment!

Casdok said...

Like you....why?!!

Carol said...

Casdok - *Grins* I have no idea!

Innocent said...

Love it. Bring it on.

Anonymous said...

You do know this is a hoax, yes?

Anyway, I love the comment about a "gap in the market". Get it?

Carol said...

Innocent - :-D

Anonymous - Yeah I know it's a hoax! Didn't when I first blogged about it but one of my commentators told me. It's still funny though

LOL, yep, I get it!

Claire said...

Only in Japan! I lived there for three years and it doesn't surprise me at all! In fact I quite fancy a skirt like that - much nicer than my real arse!

Claire (Molly Potter's sister)
P.S. LOVED the picture of the house you sent her. And the other art I've seen in your blog.
P.P.S. Only been to Thailand for a holiday (Bangkok and Chiang Mai) but it is my favourite country so far. Plan to spend winters there when I'm old (I mean even older).
