- Bizarre jeans from fashion site Shein raise eyebrows on Facebook

- Low waistband sits on the hips which are notorious for causing ‘muffin tops’
Bizarre skinny jeans from an ultra-fast fashion brand have raised eyebrows on social media, with many labeling them as a “muffin top nightmare.”
Shein’s $27.95 (AUD) medium wash cut-out skinny jeans with side tie is arguably the website’s most unflattering style yet.
Instead of shaping the tummy like traditional high-waisted trousers, the jeans have large panels cut across the front in the form of a G-string, and a second low-rise waistband that sits on the part of the hips where women most wear. weight.
The impractical cut soon caught the attention of Australian parenting blogger Stay At Home Mum, who uploaded a photo to her popular Facebook page.
Would you dare to expose? Instead of shaping the tummy like traditional high-waisted trousers, the jeans have large panels cut in the front in the shape of a G-string
What is this in the ever-loving muffin top universe? This just popped up in my Shein news feed. I do not get it…. Why?’ she wrote, alongside hashtags like “am I old now” and “would you like to wear this.”
A photo of the mind-boggling pants, which has racked up 3,200 ‘likes’ and hundreds of shares since it was shared online on Sunday, sparked thousands of comments.
‘Who designs these?’ a woman replied.
“What the hell are those,” said a second, while a third added, “Looks like we ran out of stuff.”
Dozens tagged their friends, with one woman writing, “Can you imagine us waddling around in there.”
Many criticized Shein for making clothes impractical for anyone taller than a size eight, while others criticized the website for copying independent designers’ controversial style.
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.
