This Dress Is Actually a Changing Room
If you've ever tried to change your clothes in a parking lot, your car, or at the beach — and hey, it happens — then you know that getting naked in public is downright uncomfortable. Now, we're not saying we'd do it, but The Undress is a potential solution. Available in a variety of colourways and patterns and retailing at $75 (around £47), the design is equal parts fashion and function.
Slip it on over your outfit — whether you find yourself in a bathing suit after a day at the beach or need a quick change post-workout — and the different panels, side access openings, and straps will allow you to pull off the pieces you want to discard without showing any skin, leaving you in a fresh new look. If that sounds a little complicated, it is — but cofounders Dennis Caco and April Estrada have created plenty of diagrams and a video to show you the ins and outs.
Of course, if you like the style of the reversible two-toned dress, you can throw on a pair of sandals or sneakers to create a casual ensemble. If we were away on vacation and found ourselves accepting a spontaneous dinner date, we can imagine slipping on a pair of wedges with The Undress. And if we were enduring the chaos of a sample sale and found something to try on, it might also come in handy. Apparently, we're not the only ones who think so.
So far the project has roughly 7,300 backers on Kickstarter and $615,700 in pledges. Yes, apparently The Undress is what the world's been missing. Keep reading to get more details, then let us know if your wardrobe could use one of these stylish changing rooms.
