Cuchini: the camel toe eraser

Cuchini-camel-toe

A new weapon has emerged in the fight against crimes of fashion. Its name: Cuchini. Its aim: to rid the world of camel toe, one crotch at a time.

Or, in other words, it's a pad you put into your bikini bottoms (or any other underwear, we suppose) to rid you of the dreaded camel toe. Yes.

Now, no one likes camel toe, least of all The Fashion Police. In fact, we rank it amongst the worst fashion crimes out there. The question is, though, how far would you be prepared to go to eliminate it? Would you buy a "Cuchuini"? If you would, they come in packs of two, and you can buy them here.

    At first I thought, ‘hell no, I wouldn’t buy one of those!’ but the song and the anthropomorphic camel on the product site are almost a selling point, in an incredibly creepy way.

    Hmm, I suppose a non-disposable panty-liner is quite “green”…

    Wow. So there was one more commercial possibility to get insecure women to use one more nonsensical product. What is next? The coconut swimming trunks, so that guys will never have to admit they have balls anymore?

    I’m with Astrid on this one, the product is kind of insulting. “Hide your ugly anatomy, woman!”

    I agree completely with Astrid. It is galling and depressing how far corporations/so-called fashion police will go to make women (and men) uncomfortable with their bodies. What’s next? “Ladies, of course big breasts are de riguer but do you have the right nipple? Don’t be caught on the wrong side of the areola! Remember: you have only one chance to make a first impression!”
    Create insecurity then exploit it and make a fortune. Does everyone follow the Pentagon’s business plan?
    Did the “sixties” ever really happen or was it all a sham? They did happen, and they were a sham.

    I don’t really get why people are making such a big deal about this, to be honest. Camel toe doesn’t look great, people might not want to have one. Doesn’t mean they’re ashamed of their anatomies, just means they don’t like camel toe. *Shrug*

    Agree with Emma. There’s a reason we don’t go about proudly nekkid. We are human and like to keep some things private, which is why it’s called your private area. And if you haven’t noticed, not to many people are huge fans of the speedo. Many men wear their swim trunks which are quite “roomy”…women for the most part don’t have that option, so this is…acceptable, to me.

    The camel toe or as we call it in Holland, lip reading. Is highly embarrasing of course, But do we have to buy this expensive item, for something that happens only once in a while?
    It’s just another thing to make woman and especially teenage girls insecure. And making a profit out of this new insecurity, they laid upon us.

    To those talking about insecurity and exploitation and the like: could it not just be, as Emma says, that not everyone wants to walk around with their intimate anatomy on show? Or do we have to look for sinister reasons behind every little thing now?

    I dunno, maybe I’m just less easily offended than most, but I don’t find these insulting either. Amusing and slightly ridiculous, sure, but a sign of greedy capuatalists trying to exploit my insecurities? Nah.

    Apart from any sociological implications: how practical is that thing if you actually go swimming? Will it soak itself full of water? Will it make a squishing sound if you sit down? Will everyone think you are wearing a diaper/sanitary napkin to the beach? I find it bad enough if a bikini top is padded and you end up wearing two wet sponges…

    A point of interest… I have NEVER heard of a man who didn’t like camel toe. Not that I go flaunting mine… but… just so you know.

    Women have vagina’s…they are surrounded by fleshy lips… Embrace it people!
    This product is stupid, btw…

    Theresa – no offence to men, but I don’t actually dress for them. If I did, I’d probably think it would be a good idea to walk around in nothing but a g-string. Sure, we all have vaginas, but that doesn’t mean we should get them out at every opportunity. Not every woman in the world dresses to please men all the time. Just so you know.

    Perhaps instead of buying this product, women could, well i dunno:
    1. Buy swimwear that is actually the correct size, to prevent the fit being so tight u end up with a camel toe.
    2. When u come out of the water, and your tight swimwear did create a vacuum, CHECK IF U DON’T HAVE A CAMELTOE
    Stupid product for people who are too stupid to check for a cameltoe themselves.

    I didn’t get quite offended by the fact that it’s making people ashamed of their bodies, but more by the fact that there WILL be people that will give that corporation their money because they think they need another useless product. You could essentially wear a pad that you would use on your period and it would do the same thing and end up soggy and looking kind of obvious (which I think it does in the ‘after’ picture). I agree with Volirus — buy a swim suit that fits and check when you get out if you have camel toe. At the beach or at a pool, I don’t think anyone will get offended if you adjust your suit bottoms. Hell, guys can adjust themselves all the time, and not many (not all, mind you) people do not care.

    Hiding a cameltoe? Why not using something to cover your hair? What’s next?
    Women bodies should NOT be hidden beynond reason. A camel toe is something really harmless (as pointy nipples and so on) and worrying about it is WRONG.

    Obviously all the men love to see camel toe and pointy nipples.Women on the other hand, do not wish to be viewed as sexual objects for men to fantasize about.
    Discretion and modesty never go out of fashion.
    Im sure if it was their elderly mother displaying these traits, they would object.
