It just keeps getting more and more terrifying to behold. The off-shoots of the jeggings trend that have turned the denim industry into a prime target for mockery. At least, we hope this is mockery, and not to be taken seriously. Junderpants were discovered by the staff of Jezebel and so taken were they, they had to try them on for a little
horror show photo shoot. They’re the tiniest booty-shorts we’ve ever seen, complete with realistic denim texture.

Faux-jeans are all the rage right now, from the Jeanpants Underwear to the tirelss debate as to whether jeggings should be outlawed. But it’s not exactly a new craze. A scan from an old issue of NYLON magazine reminds us that jeggings were raising eyebrows years before Conan O’Brien pulled on a pair and made his studio audience scream.

Covered in faux-zippers, pockets, stitching and cuffs, the convincing facade brought some colorful rock’n'roll kick to the playing field. The brand’s current collection is comprised mostly of colorful, free-spirited sportswear that leans towards resort. But we can’t say we’d mind if they slipped back into faux-jeans territory again…
