as I am sure you are aware, some patterns can appear to the naked eye as though they are moving. it would be simplicity itself to embroider or print patterns onto clothing.

fancy wiggling like Marilyn Monroe? just slap a target shape on your bottom or try two on your t-shirt to wobble those wobbly bits without even moving.

the lads could wear them on their chest to interest the girls with incredibly pulsating pectorals, bulging biceps or indeed flatten that beer gut.

       In all fairness, I think we already do. Why otherwise the prescriptions for wearing stripes, or not, and all those fabrics that change color depending on the angle?

       I'm after wobbles & pulsating rather than just thinning.

       While someone with normal vision observes an attractive wiggle, someone with astigmatism observes a seizure.
