ASOS baffles shoppers by selling crotch-flashing shorts

ASOS has sold some barmy clothing items over the years.

Toeless socks and latex lingerie are among the items to feature on the website in recent months.

But these releases look tame compared to the latest bizarre garment.

Currently, the store is flogging a barmy crotch-flashing harness.

So would you be brave enough to wear it?

ASOS is selling the Truly High Waist Leg Cut Out Leg Harness for £14.

The unique item looks like the cross between cycle shorts and saucy suspenders.

It features a large cut-out at the front and rear, which would expose the wearer’s intimate areas.

Thankfully, the model on the website was styled with black knickers to prevent any X-rated reveals.

In the product description, the retailer failed to mention how the garment can be worn.

For this reason, shoppers have been left feeling rather baffled by the shorts.

A picture of the product have racked up 920 likes on the Asbos_sos Instagram page, where it’s been ridiculed.

One fashion fan described the harness as “horrific”, while another branded it “horrendous”.

A third added: “I don’t see a circumstance that would require wearing these.”

Another asked: “What in God’s name? What purpose do they serve?”
