Farmer Fashion is once again breaking new ground in the rag trade by the unveiling of hidden helix garments. Instead of hanging from straps, belts or elastic, the clothing is held up from below, by a spiral sewn into the cloth.
Use of a thin, lightweight spring of steel or plastic, means for example
