anti-rape panties*(Via iDateDaily) – A new company named AR Wear is taking on a very proactive, 21st Century approach to tackling the issue of rape.

The company is creating a line of apparel (e.g. panties, shorts, and workout clothing) that are cut and pull resistant.

The apparel, which is solely for women at this time, features an innovative skeletal structure, cut resistant straps and webbing that protect the thighs, waist, and central panel, and a unique locking device.

Last year, the company created a crowdfunding landing page in hopes of raising $50,000 to finalize prototypes that can be production ready and to gauge interest in the product. In just a little over a month, the company surpassed their goal and raised nearly $55,000.

The company’s goal is to design products that can be worn comfortably while still being able to frustrate an assault effectively. Citing statistics, the company’s crowdfunding landing page states that resistance increases the chance of avoiding a completed rαpe without making the victim more likely to be physically injured.
