A Zara customer was left mortified after wearing a pair of the brand's faux leather trousers to dinner and discovering a very awkward design flaw.

Julia Leonard shared the embarrassing experience on TikTok and the hilarious video clip went viral, racking up nearly four million views.

She described how she visited a restaurant with her family and was given a surprise went she bent over to pick up her sister's phone, reports the Mirror.

In the clip on TikTok, she said: "Please just keep watching if you shop at Zara. So I bought these really cute, flarey-type leather pants, and I went out to eat with my family.

"And thank god it was just my family. On our way out, my sister drops her phone, so I go down to pick it up and this happens…"

Julia then stands back and demonstrates bending down, at which point the trousers let out a noise comparable to loudly breaking wind – before squatting down twice more to prove it was not an unfortunate isolated incident.
