A pair of butt-baring leggings from Rihanna's Savage X Fenty lingerie and loungewear line is making waves on social media and bringing the term "butt cleavage" to light. The Soft Mesh Open-Back Crotchless Legging may look like a typical pair of leggings from the front, but things get a little racier with a glimpse at the back. Retailing for $49.95, the leggings boast an open crisscross detail that exposes some skin on the rear.
The chatter surrounding the piece of clothing was sparked last week after a TikTok user going by the handle Father Marge humorously recounted her recent online shopping experience. The shopper explained that while visiting Fabletic's website "to see their monthly outfit because I had a credit to use," she came across the leggings in question. In the clip, the shopper quipped, "Umm... Can someone at Fabletics tell me what this is? Things are getting a little bit crazy."
The Soft Mesh Open-Back Crotchless Leggings come in black and purple lavender, and, according to the official listing, are perfect for "the cozy night in." The leggings boast sheer soft mesh fabric "that provides a comfortable fit" and also offers a "playful surprise" with the open strappy lace trim cutout in the back. That cutout plunges several inches, giving the leggings a unique butt-bearing feature.
After the TikTok went viral, social media users went crazy, with the leggings soon making their way across various platforms. The unique butt cleavage cutout has left many bewildered. Keep scrolling to see how people are reacting.
