The unusual style is very popular in Japan...

Camel toes aren’t usually considered attractive, more of a wardrobe gaffe in fact, but now Amazon UK is selling underwear to give ladies this unusual effect.

‘Camel toe’ knickers have previously been very popular in Asian markets but have recently made their way to Britain.

So why are more and more people buying into the weird trend? Well, the demand for these unique undergarments could come from the growing popularity of ‘vaginal procedures’.

The appeal of such surgeries have increased a great deal according to NHS data, with around 10,000 women having it done last year.

The aim of such surgeries is too smooth and rejuvenate down below. However, the ‘camel toe’ underwear hopes to give the appearance of a perfect situation without medical intervention.

Apparently, the pants have been wildly popular in Japan for over a decade, and according to the description on Amazon, they are basically meant to be a push-up bra for a ladies area. ‘Similar to a good bra, these quirky panties promise to “lift and separate,” they say.

It’s still pretty baffling to us though. Surely, you’d want to avoid a camel toe if the aim is attractiveness?

How do lads feel about it? Well, the camel toe is a polarising topic; some like it while others don’t. Women generally despise it though…

One Reddit user R_A_H shared their view eloquently, writing: “Yeah, this depends on a variety of factors on a case-by-case basis.

“The setting in which it’s seen, what it’s seen through (panties or yoga pants or sweatpants lol,) the physique of the lady, the general appearance of the lady. But if she’s dressed casual (and it’s accidental) then it can be sexy.”

Perhaps this new trend will spark a change in taste or (hopefully) die a quick death. If you’re hankering for a pair, they are selling online now for a whopping £16.99.
