UnderEase Anti-Flatulence Underwear — 'Wear them for the ones you love'


I knew I shouldn't have put up that brief safe.

Oh, well — I guess it's too late now.

All kinds of stuff is now being sent my way, much of it hilarious but completely unsuitable for this Disney-Approved/G-Rated site.

These underpants, though, do appear appropriate.

I guess it all depends on what you believe the meaning of "appropriate" is.

From the website:

    Revolutionary New Underwear For Offensive Gas

    "Over 10,000 Satisfied Customers"

    UnderEase are underwear for protection against bad human gas (malodorous flatus) and are made from a soft air-tight fabric (polyurethane-coated nylon). To maintain the air-tightness, elastic is sewn into the material around the waist and both legs.

    A triangular "exit hole" for the flatus to be expelled is cut from the back of the air-tight underwear, near the bottom. This "exit hole" is covered with a "pocket" made of ordinary porous fabric sewn over the "exit hole". This unique design forces all expelled gas (flatus) out through the "pocket".

    Inside the "pocket" is a high-functioning, replaceable filter — the core of the technology. This multi-layered filter is made in a sandwich-style, and begins with the two outer layers of wool felt. The second two layers are made of non-woven polypropylene and spun glass materials. In the center of the filter is a single layer of activated carbon.

    The filter is then covered with soft ordinary material to allow for easy replacement in or out of the pocket. The underwear are washable and will last approximately a year depending on the frequency of use and laundering. Each filter will last from several weeks to several months depending on the frequency of use and laundering.


Available in Male (above) and Female (below) styles: $24.95.


Plus sizes (Unisex; below):



But perhaps you're not ready to make that kind of financial commitment in order to explore this cutting-edge technology.

I hear you.

And so do the folks at UnderEase.

They've created a lower-priced line called Gas Eaters (below)


for those folks who want to test the water — to mix a metaphor in a most unfortunate fashion — before jumping in.

Unisex, with a non-replaceable filter: $9.95 a pair.

There is an even better product available to the masses. Does not require you to wear these hot plastic underwear. It is the Flatulence Deodorizer by Flat-D Innovations or www.flat-d.com It is and activated charcoal cloth pad that you place in your own underwear and it absorbs gas odor.

These seem perfect for detaining those escapee farts that sneak out at inopportune moments.

Disney approved and G rated? oh my. I am red faced now. I have actually cussed on some of my comments and for that I am truly sorry for.

I guess my ideas on this idea would be much like flautist and worry about the wool and glass in that very private area. Also we do want to know, as enquiring minds always do, have you and yes I mean you JOE have you actually tried these? Do they work?? Also why would anyone ever want to buy them?? I really didn't realize that there was a problem with flatulence? Butt and yes I do mean butt, I raised sons so I guess I am so used to hearing this and even being so grossed out by them that this does not cause a problem in our household anymore. I just tell them to remove themselves. Go to the bathroom dangit!

This would be CHEESE-cutting-edge technology, I suppose.

The idea of having wool felt and spun glass in close proximity to such tender apparatus seems like a recipe for discomfort of heretofore unknown proportions.
