Rihanna’s butt-baring Savage X Fenty leggings — which also happen to be crotchless — are taking TikTok by storm.

These cheeky crotchless tights are Rihanna’s wildest design yet — no ifs, ands or butts about it.
Meet the Soft Mesh Open-Back Crotchless Legging ($49.95) from Savage X Fenty, the pop superstar’s lingerie and loungewear line. From the front, the style looks more or less like any other pair of semi-sheer, high-waisted leggings on the market.
But in addition to the titular crotch cutout, the tights have a plunging back that exposes most of the wearer’s derrière, with strappy lace trim crisscrossing over the butt crack for a “playful surprise,” per the product description.
Last week, TikTok user @fathermarge understandably questioned the peekaboo pants’ wearability, jokingly referencing Kate Hudson’s activewear brand and asking, “Can someone at Fabletics tell me what this is?”
Her perplexed reaction swiftly went viral on the platform, with one commenter calling the leggings “definitely not squat-proof” and another wondering, “How did that get approved?”
“Every day we get further and further from the Lord,” a third quipped.
But not everyone took issue with the head-scratching style. “It’s a vent. It’s called fashion sweeties. Look it up,” one person wrote.
“Can we normalize butt cleavage?” another fellow TikTok user wondered, adding, “Butt cleav is sexy, butt cleav is amazing. Let’s normalize that.”
And while obviously not intended for public workouts, the Savage X Fenty leggings have racked up plenty of positive reviews on the brand’s website.
“It is pretty clear these aren’t the type of leggings you are going to wear to the grocery store, but as something sexy and different for around the house or to sleep in? These are unique, flattering, and really pretty!” one review reads.
“These are the HOTTEST leggings,” another shopper gushed. “I mean, the backless part is enough… but crotchless, too? They’re really comfortable to wear around the house, but usually I just wear them to get my husband’s attention when he’s playing video games :)”
Savage X Fenty also sells a slightly less revealing version of the style ($44.95) with a narrower lace-up detail in the back, as well as “bohemian paisley” tights ($49.95) with an even more risqué circular butt cutout — the latter labeled as “Rihanna’s pick,” naturally.
