Labia in tight pants resemble a camel's toe

Camel toe or cameltoe is a slang term that refers to the outline of a woman's labia majora, as seen through tightly fitting clothes.[1][2] Due to a combination of anatomical factors and the tightness of the fabric covering it, the crotch and mons pubis may take on a resemblance to the forefoot of a camel. Camel toe commonly occurs as a result of wearing tight fitting clothes, such as shorts, hotpants or swimwear.[3]

In men, the equivalent to "camel toe" is male organs showing through clothes at the crotch, which has been referred to as a "moose knuckle".[4]
