“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 said.
Shein made headlines last month for an equally controversial pair of shorts – a rather impractical pair of denim thong shorts.
The ‘Low Rise Booty Denim Shorts’ cost £11.99 and have a top metal button, zipper, and belt strap – characteristic of most pairs of jeans.

Shopper, Sue Lascelles said: "Just don't go for a bike ride in them. You may never walk again."
Fiona Hanks said: "I wouldn't feel comfortable putting them in my pants drawer."
Shakura Santana said: "That’s a jean thong."
Simone Kneen joked: "Where do you put your loose change?"
