Two Salinas-area moms have found a fresh way to cover unsightly flesh exposed by low-rise jeans.
Combining the powers of innovative thinking and the Internet, best friends Christine Meeks and Kelley DeSerpa have launched the hip-T, an article of clothing designed to counteract rear-end exposure.
Akin to a tube top in design, the hip-T is available in black, white and pink lace; black, white, medium-gray and chocolate brown without lace, or two different prints through the Fresh for Fall line.
On Tuesday afternoon, Meeks, 40, and DeSerpa, 42, wore hip-Ts of white lace and one of the Fresh for Fall prints, respectively. They spoke with barely contained excitement about their pioneering endeavor at DeSerpa's home in Salinas.
"One hard thing is there's nothing else like this out there," said DeSerpa, who's known Meeks for the past 11 years. "It's not like you can Google a hip-T, so no one knows where to find us. We'd like to get the word out, because it's such a new concept."
