Underbutt is the new underboob.

 

 

Dear Nicky, where can I buy denim shorts that won’t show off my bum cheeks? Thanks, Melissa.

Ah Melissa, you’ve nailed the number one issue facing women over the age of 25 today. Well, you know, aside from body image, politics, housing affordability, catfishing, avoiding dates like this and THISthe cost of living, and the holy grail of beauty: flawless skin (you guys? Stop looking, it’s here).

But seriously, what’s with all the short-shorts? When did denim cutoffs begin to resemble underwear? Where is all the fabric hiding out? When did it become acceptable to show one’s bum cheeks in public? And how old do I feel right now?
