Shein mocked for bizarre leather thong shorts compared to a ‘loin cloth’
Social media in shock over Shein's raunchy 'SXY' swimsuit

Fast fashion giant, Shein has been mocked once again for its latest bizarre offering – a minuscule pair of leather thong shorts.

Priced at £12.99, the outrageous shorts appear to be little more than underwear, cropped at the top of the thigh and with a thong-style back.

The ‘shorts’ are available in sizes 6-16 and in black, silver, and tan for anyone daring enough to don them.

The ‘Apperloth A Pocket Patched PU Leather Shorts’ has garnered ridicule on social media with users comparing the strange design to that of a 'loin cloth'.

One 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 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.

But after the first set of stitching the shorts cut off leaving little to the imagination.

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?"
