It further reads, “When worn with Shreddies flatulence filtering underwear it offers a double layer of protection, giving increased confidence that all odours are filtered.”
However, buying these pair of jeans can be an expensive affair as one pair costs £100 (Rs 9,600) and it comes in seven different sizes. A single pair of normal jeans will cost you £19 (Rs 1,800).
The website also states, “Over-the-counter charcoal tablets can help greatly. These work by absorbing gas in the digestive system. Charcoal pads worn in your underwear are also available. These absorb the gas that is released during flatulence and mask the foul-smelling gas.”
Well, these jeans are worth to buy only if you can pay that hefty price.
