It might seem like the androgynous fashion trend taken too far, but a Chinese company’s new ‘hairy leg’ hosiery hopes to help women ward off unwanted male attention.
A photograph posted to the Shanghai-based website ChinaSMACK shows a model from the waist down wearing the on-trend stockings.
A caption below touts them as the perfect 'summertime anti-pervert' device and 'essential for young girls going out’.
It does not state where shoppers can find the garment and internet searches prove fruitless.
The image of the tights has triggered hundreds of responses from amused and horrified viewers.
‘Damn, so disgusting!’ commented one.
