VPL or visible panty line for any men that might be reading this article, can be one of the smaller but none-the-less irritating problematic situations of wearing women’s underwear. The VPL dilemma causes women to choose between the beautiful decorated lace and silk pants of our dreams, or plain and boring seamless granny pants which usually some in black, white, or skintone. Not exactly the most exciting choice in the world on the VPL front.
With some beautiful lingerie available on the market, with reduced thickness fabric in order to lessen the pany line, those are not invisible. And maybe this doesn’t seem like a big problem to people who haven’t experienced it – but if you are lucky enough to not be tempted to wear leggings to university, I salute you. There is nothing more uncomfortable than knowing as you sit cross legged laughing with your friends on campus at a bench, that the guy stood smoking with his friends down the way is looking at you because the perfect outline of your booty is staring him in the face. Nothing.
But now ladies their may be a solution to this real life irritation on the horizon. Nottingham Trent University undergrad Jess Haughton (23) has developed a totally unique way of completely extinguishing VPL. The underwear is designed and then a 3D printer unveils the underwear made of super thin silicone allowing for a skin-like layer of fabric that is barely noticeable on the skin. The idea, as well as being practical for ridding us of VPL also means that every pair is entirely customisable. This means that as well as being able to have a completely unique one-off pair which will fit perfectly to your skin, you can change the colours and patterns on the underwear to create a pair to be proud of.
