The contrasting colors make a statement and draw attention to what's hiding underneath.
The outragious abbreviated mini short is my favorite Mategear garment. The features which are outstanding to me on the 2XL size are a low rise front of 5 3/4 inches from crotch to the waistband, an inseam of 1 1/2 inches in the crotch, and a full side split that is 3 3/4 inches long from bottom of leg opening to top of waist. (The split is perpendicular but when wearing the split will open and look similar to an upside down "V".) These style features provide ample exposure of the abdomen, legs, and rear cheeks. The particular variation on this specific short includes black translucent fabric for the side panels next to the side split. The light grey front and rear panels of thin nylon are become opaque when wet. I look forward to more mini shorts with the straight full side split feature and hope solid black translucent and sports mesh fabric are in the near future. The outrageous sexy mini short is a real winner!
