I was at my pilates class yesterday and while doing some heel lifts on the reformer, something was distracting me. I tried my best to look away from my trainer, but the ‘womanly shape’ (aka camel toe) in her tight pants was just too hard to miss. I couldn't help but think that it really stood out in hot pink and surely it must be uncomfortable..? Thinking beyond her situation, it made my look down to make sure I wasn't a victim myself!
Ah, the woes of being a woman. Not only do we have to wear clothes that flatter our body shape but we have to contend with ‘fixing’ imperfections deemed a big deal in our mind, though ridiculously unimportant in the real world.
Being a woman is tough but thankfully, a few geniuses around the world have answered our prayers with their wonderful (life-changing) inventions. Call these what you will, these 11 products can literally save any tight, loose and embarrassing situation.
Camel Toe Covered
Let’s address The camel-toe. Apparently guys don't mind it, it sends their imaginations wild similar to the elusive side boob but for women seeing it, you may get some awkward glares. Maybe you're into that, but hear me ladies, a genius in the US has come up with a winning product. The Camel-No has an in-built silicone panel that learns about your lower ‘curves’ and moulds accordingly making the dreaded ‘W’ a thing of the past. Apparently in the first day of sales, 30,000 women jumped to buy a pair. Camel-Toe-no-more!
