Having an hourglass shape and a well-endowed body are the two most wished body goals for women. This is why the use of padded underwear have risen tremendously in recent years.
Some men in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) are not cool with this trend as they speak out on Thursday, 8th December, saying women deceive them with the use of padded underwear, which includes padded braziers, butt/hip enhancer, waist cincher and others.
According to a report by the News Agency of Nigeria, some of the men said they found the trend repulsive and unappealing as the body enhancers give a wrong impression about the reality of the user’s physique.
Timothy Danladi, condemned the use of body enhancers, describing it as artificial and falsifying.
“I find the use of artificial buttocks by some women to add more to their God’s given physique unattractive. This is because it gives a wrong impression about their stature that will definitely be revealed to their partners when they get married,’’ he said.
Another Abuja residence, Emmanuel Alabi said body enhancers could cause problems in the home since most men are moved by sight and facial beauty. He also added that if a woman uses artificial things to entice a man into marrying her, nemesis is likely to catch up with her because when he later finds out she was fake, he could end the union.
Similarly, Shuaibu Sabo said that body enhancers only created an illusion that is far from reality, advising women to stay natural and be content with their God-given body.
However, a few others said the use of body enhancers, particularly padded braziers, brings out the sexual appeal of the wearer, making her more attractive and confident.
Sani Isuwa, said he found the use of body enhancers attractive, especially for women whose body were not proportionate to other parts.
Isuwa also said he did not have any problem or reservation about a woman who uses enhancers which is better than undergoing a surgery as is practiced in western countries.
Another man says some women actually need body enhancers to make them more appealing and attractive to the opposite sex. According to him, he encourages his wife to use padded bra because nursing five children has changed the shape and size of her breast.
