Hairy Leg Stockings Are All the Rage in China

A new fashion statement is growing -- so to speak -- on Chinese social media, and we imagine its only a matter of time before you find it in your local Urban Outfitters.

Yesterday commenters expressed feelings of curiosity and disgust when user Happy张江 posted this picture to Sina Weibo, a Chinese micro-blogging service.

Hard to say whether these hairy legs are synthetic Sasquatch or authentically unshaven getaway sticks, but one thing's for sure: they're bound to repel your everyday predator -- which is exactly the user's goal.

Translation via chinaSMACK:

"Super sexy, summertime anti-pervert full-leg-of-hair stockings, essential for all young girls going out."

Of course, as fun as the idea for these hairy leg stockings may be, the cheaper alternative for most women is still the easiest of all -- just stop shaving. Think of it as beard nation for the female population.
