Shein G-string skinny jeans are causing a stir online

These $30 Skinny Jeans Look Like Others From The Front — But They Take A VERY Spicy Turn When You Spin

  • Jeans from ultra-fast fashion website Shein raise eyebrows online
  • The $28.95 (AUD) high-waisted pants look standard enough from the front
  • But the rear view tells a completely different story that is not for the faint of heart

A tantalizing pair of jeans from an ultra-fast fashion website raises eyebrows online.

Shein’s $28.95 (AUD) ‘Sexy Plus Cut Out Waist Skinny Jeans’ looks just like any other style from the front, but the back tells a whole different story that’s not for the faint of heart.

Rather than covering the lower back like the traditional high-waisted silhouette, the fabric is cut into a triangular shape that looks like a denim G-string sewn into the pants.

Would you wear the G-string jeans?

The sassy design that accentuates the wearer’s rear imitates a controversial style from Gucci’s Spring 1998 collection, where models walked the catwalk in satin trousers with leather waistbands that protruded above the waistband.

It’s a style conservative dressers are sure to avoid, but the single review on Shein’s website proves the jeans struck the right chord with at least one customer.

‘Omg so cute, I love it!’ she wrote.

While it has a loyal community of Gen Z fans and a whopping 21.4 million followers on Instagram, Shein has been making headlines recently for all the wrong reasons.

The Chinese retailer known for its ultra-cheap cycling shorts, crop tops and bikinis has come under fire for copying styles from emerging designers.

On Aug. 12, whistleblower’s Instagram account Diet Prada highlighted allegations by designer Bailey Prado that Shein copied more than 45 of her designs with a series of side-by-side shots showing the company’s nearly identical knock-offs.

The website, reportedly worth a staggering $20 billion 13 years after its launch in 2008, has also been hit by allegations of unsustainable and environmentally damaging practices and unethical working conditions.

However, fans have defended the retailer, arguing that the ‘Curve’ category is one of the most affordable size-inclusive ranges available to shoppers.

Unlike most other brands that stop at size XL, Shein’s plus-size collection goes all the way up to 5XL.
