Why Underbutt is the Worst Trend of the Summer

We fashion writers can be a slave to trends…and I’ll admit, I am one of them. Harem pants, crop tops, sneaker wedges…you name it, and I’ve probably worn it at least once or twice. But there is one trend sweeping our nation this summer that I absolutely CANNOT stand: the underbutt.

Underbutt (or butt cleavage) is the worst trend of the summer. It’s an epidemic. It’s everywhere. And unfortunately, I don’t think it will be going away anytime soon.

The fact that some people think wearing shorts so tiny that their butt cheeks literally seep out from underneath is appropriate appalls me. Those of you who proudly show off your cheeks may think I’m being a prude, but I say you’re assaulting my eyes. It makes me uncomfortable to see your buttocks on the street. It makes me even more uncomfortable to think that I could be sitting on a subway seat that had your bare ass on it. It is especially disturbing to see tweeners showing off their derrieres to the world, while older men gawk in a perverse way.

I blame Miley Cyrus and Rihanna for the underbutt epidemic. RiRi took the look to a whole new level by Instagramming a picture of herself in what was basically a denim thong. But of course, the Smilers and the Rihanna navy had to follow suit in the hopes of being just like their fave celebs.

It’s pretty much expected to see celebs show some skin…especially when it comes to those two. So perhaps I’m against underbutt in real life because it’s unexpected, especially when you’re going about your day-to-day activities. Sure, when you’re on a beach or at the pool, you’ll expect to see some ass here and there. But when you’re walking down the street on your way to work? No. At the mall? No, no no. At the local fro-yo shoppe where there are CHILDREN and families?! Unacceptable. (See photo below for proof).

And the truth is, no matter what your body type, “cheeky” shorts are just unflattering. It doesn’t enhance a nice buttocks – it makes it look saggy. And while I admire bigger women who are proud to show off their curves, this is not the way to do it.

I also imagine that these tiny shorts can’t be comfortable. You may think you're airing it out by letting it hang out…I say, nothing like a denim wedgie on a sweltering hot day!

So underbutt, please go away. You're not doing anyone any favours, and you just need to get lost already. 

 

Sincerely, 

A girl with a fully-covered backside.

    Many arguments here are very strange. Hi would like to come back on a few paragraph I read in this article that are way more shocking/concerning than the subject…

    “Those of you who proudly show off your cheeks may think I’m being a prude, but I say you’re assaulting my eyes. It makes me uncomfortable to see your buttocks on the street.”

    This type of comment, “assaulting my eyes”, can be used because someone is too fat, don’t have a pretty face, should not smile because the teeth are not looking good… You see where I go?

    Like everything else, you look what you like, what’s interesting. You don’t waste your time on what you don’t like.

    It’s not your standard, ok. But it does not hurt anyone. He/she can wear anything they like. I have no issue with it…

    Also, the picture of Miley Cyrus, c’mon, it’s barely visible. Not like waking in a string. Also, as long as it follows it no coal ordinance, I don’t see an issue.

    You may see it as ridiculous, and so what? Something ridiculous do not harm. The worst it will put a smile on someone’s face.

    “It makes me even more uncomfortable to think that I could be sitting on a subway seat that had your bare ass on it.”

    The butt cheeks, why would it be disgusting? I would be more disgusted by touching a surface someone touched, knowing he/she didn’t wash hands after going to the restroom. It’s not like a dirty butt hole was rubbing on that surface. It’s only skin.

    “Sure, when you’re on a beach or at the pool, you’ll expect to see some ass here and there. But when you’re walking down the street on your way to work? No. At the mall? No, no no. At the local fro-yo shoppe where there are CHILDREN and families?! Unacceptable.”

    On a beach families and children are there.
    Why would it be bad for children to see such attire? Because the society taught people it’s bad?
    Children are innocent, sexuality is taught. I grew up in a family where nudity was not a taboo, but no one were flaunting their assets. I’m not a naturist, but seriously, people should grow a little and start thinking a little first. There is nothing sexual seeing butt cheeks. You are not looking at genitalia. And children are present on naturist beaches as well, and there is no issues for them.

    Conclusion, underbutt is exactly similar to being dressed sexy. Just because some of the novent butt chicks bottoms are seen doesn’t make any different.

    People are too entitled to their own way of thinking. I hate something, then it’s wrong for everyone.

    Hi. I do respect you don’t like the underbutt. I actually have no issue. Everyone can be as he/she likes. The society we are living in made pieces of skin uncovered a bad thing.

    You say it is assaulting your eyes. It makes you uncomfortable. Well, someone smoking in the street is assaulting my lungs, and it makes me uncomfortable too.

    A seat where someone placed their bare butt cheeks ? The ass wasn’t bare. People are walking on street with shoes, stepping in pee, jumping on seats with their shoes. I really prefer a piece of skin rather than these shoes.

    Why would it be ok to see some butt cheeks on a beach, but not on the street ?

    And why if there is children ?
    It’s not ok for a children to see because we taught him/her it wasn’t. Nothing wrong. Everyone is born naked. I’ve never see anyone coming into this world with clothes on.

    I do believe for you families going to naturist clubs (not swingers) with children are exposing them to something very bad ?
    No, it’s totally fine.

    I guess America should definitely wake up. Maybe there is so many pervert in America because it’s so prude. Who knows ?

    I’ve been in European Nordic countries, such as Finland. And saunas there is only naked. Nudity is accepted, is normal, and people are not pervert.

    When it’s hot, if it’s comfortable, wear it.

    Not everyone looks good to our eyes, it doesn’t mean they don’t have the right to be outside. They do have the right. Well, the same here.

    The arguments here are pretty in relevant. Sorry to say that. Seems like argument to comfort a position.
