A blanket you wear
Kimberly Swygert got one of these as a gift, and she says it's "the least erotic item of women's clothing that I've ever seen."
I dunno. I'm pretty sure it's at least a couple of head-turns more interesting than the traditional burqa, especially if it's draped over a Major Babe like Dr. Swygert.
But even clothing at the other extreme has its limitations, as James Lileks once noted:
Let us be frank about the purpose of lingerie.... It is not normal clothing. It exists for one purpose: to be, eventually, visible for a very short time. If it is visible for a very long time and I am trying to be delicate about this then it is not doing its job.
Beyond this, deponent saith not.
