Walmart announced Friday it has acquired the online lingerie company Bare Necessities as part of its mission to become a bigger fashion destination.

Bare Necessites, founded in 1998, offers more than 100,000 lingerie items from more than 160 brands, including a wide assortment of bras, swimwear, shapewear, and sleepwear.

Here’s the thing: While Bare Necessities carries the predictable assortment of bras and briefs, BuzzFeed News also discovered after some intrepid sleuthing on the site that it touts crotchless underwear among its “Top Styles.”
