Flirty underwear for disabled women designed in Singapore

Singapore - Underwear for disabled women that is easy to put on and 'flirty' has been designed in Singapore, the team said on Friday.
The panty dubbed 'Wunder' does not require the wearer to bend over to put on or remove - a challenge for the wheelchair-bound or those with other injuries.
Underwear now available to special-needs women is 'ugly, diaper-like and unisex,' The Straits Times quoted wheelchair-bound Suveida Mydin as saying.
The 46-year-old private tutor was on the 10-member team that came up with the innovation answering the mobility problems of putting on a panty by having velcro fasteners, on one side and at the crotch.
Wunder is 'easy to put on, flirty and always feminine,' Mydin said.© 2007 dpa - Deutsche Presse-Agentur
