NextImg:Shein mocked for bizarre leather thong shorts: ‘Buttcheek loin cloth’

It’s become the butt of jokes.

Shein’s Apperloth A Pocket Patched PU Leather Shorts are attracting ridicule on social media, with users comparing the strange design to a “loin cloth.”

Retailing for $13.49, the barely-there bottoms appear to be little more than underwear, cropped at the top of the thigh, boasting a thong-style back and some strategically-placed rear pockets.

They come in three colors: Black, silver, and rust brown, and in sizes 2-12 for those bold enough to try them out.

The Post reached out to the fast fashion brand for comment.

One social media user joked: “There’s pockets for your yeast infection cream! Hell yes!”

“I don’t want to look too closely but I think there’s a situation happening in the front of those shorts…honey I don’t think there’s enough breathable fabric to be that far inside you,” another viewer commented.

Someone else added: “When women ask for pockets, WE DONT MEAN THIS ONES!” [sic]

“The fact that the pockets are real…” another user commented.

Another person quipped: “Somewhere, a camel is missing a toe. Miss Trunchbull vibes, haha.”

“Is it giving buttcheek loin cloth?” someone else wondered.

Earlier this year, Shein made headlines for its Low Rise Booty Denim Shorts, which are really nothing more than a denim thong.

The unusual item has a top metal button, zipper, and belt strap similar to a full pair of jeans.

Concerned shoppers asked, “How do you fit anything in there?!” and “Where does everything else go?”

“This picture is chafing me,” one Twitter user declared.

“My crotch would never recover,” another person tweeted.

“That’s not enough fabric to cover the goods. I doubt those shorts would pass a public decency test,” wrote yet another.

The Chinese retailer, popular among Gen Zers, is notorious for selling outrageous and cheap clothing items. In August, shoppers asked “why bother?” about an itsy bitsy plaid bikini that could never be worn in public.

Shein even offered a raunchy rhinestone-studded one-piece bathing suit that the internet called “a wedgie you pay for.”
