Two Central Coast moms say they have come up with a solution to the old problem of "plumber's crack," the revealing and often embarrassing problem of exposed backsides resulting from poorly fitting pants.
Christine Meeks and Kelley DeSerpa have come up with the Hip-T an invention designed to keep your assets covered.
Meeks and DeSerpa, who have patented their idea, said they came up with the idea when one of their daughters complained about the problem.
About a year ago, Meeks and DeSerpa converted a bedroom into an office and business with about $15,000 saved between them.
Most sales take place through their Web site and they have already shipped their product to addresses in all 50 states. The hip-T runs $19.95.
