Cameltoe is a slang term that refers to the outline of the labia majora seen through tight clothes.[1][2] Male organs showing through clothes at the crotch may be called moose knuckle.[3] This slang was depicted in the film The Weather Man.

Common circumstancesEdit

The causes of cameltoe are not always obvious.Camel Toes are like a front wedgey's, it doesn't look very pretty and is very weird![4][5] Cameltoe commonly occurs as a result of wearing tight fitting clothes, such as jeans, shorts, hotpants, or swimwear.[5] Due to a combination of anatomical factors, the snugness of the fabric in the region surrounding the cleft of venus may result in the area of the crotch taking on the appearance of the forefoot of a camel or other even-toed ungulate.

However, some fashion analysts have also identified clothing design as a cause, rather than its size. Cameltoe may thus be exacerbated by jeans or other garments with a tight central seam that serves to divide the labia majora.[6][7]

Cameltoe vs. bulgeEdit

Uncleft "bulges" are more often visible. The degree to which a woman's mons pubis protrudes depends on a number of factors, including weight and anatomical variation.[8]

Most of the time, camel toe is caused by wearing pants that are too big -in one specific area- making a reciprocal area too small. It's an engineering problem, not a weight problem. In fact, here's a skinny mannequin. If she's got a camel toe, everyone else will too." Fashion Incubator, April 21, 2006.
