My brother sent me a picture message the other day from Wal-Mart. My brother is always finding the most ridiculous stuff but this new product that he pulled up takes the cake; Booty Pop. What Booty Pop is are these underwear with pads in them to make your butt appear curvier. Yes indeed, in the wake of an era of health nuts and green tea and environmentalism (in an age when even Jennifer Lopez is a demure wife of Marc Anthony) comes the Booty Pop. These As Seen on TV products are a crazy footnote to the last crazy several years or so, but what are the Booty Pop? How do they make your curves go bump in the night? Where can you get your Booty Pop?
Booty Pop: The Situation: While I wouldn’t be surprised to find Booty Pop wearing gals on the new season of The Jersey Shore, I don’t know how kindly The Situation would take to finding no ass in real hands while the guise of curves was there. still Booty Pop is probably something which should have come about when Mrs. Lopez-Anthony was still Jenny from the Block. Booty Pop does a fine job in legitimizing themselves by saying “think of how a padded bra enhances your bust line – Booty Pop naturally enhances your curves in the same way.” [sic]
Booty Pop: Aggrandized Booty: Booty Pop panties are said to be made from 95% cotton and 5% spandex to give the wearer “perfect comfort and fit.” The extra added bounce in the Booty Pop panties is actually a “lightweight, seamless foam fabric that is used to make your Booty Pop.” If you are trying to imagine how you could wear some foam in your butt and feel natural, fear not. Booty Pop panties “not only look natural they also FEEL natural,” according to research done on the Booty Pop website.
Booty Pop: Public Perception: While it is impossible to know who is who they say they are online, much of the public outcry over Booty Pop has been largely positive. Also, according to reports from Booty Pop, the Booty Pop panties were worn by Kelly Ripa, Sherri Shepherd from The View. Booty Pop panties were also featured on Martha Stewart, The Today Show, and The Tonight Show.
Booty Pop: Verdict: While I don’t know that I’d want my girl walking around in these things, I could understand why a single girl may feel more confident stepping out in some Booty Pop supported clothing. Eventually though we all need to get comfortable with who we are, Booty Pop or no pop.
