Plastic underwear

Sounds uncomfortable?  But apparently it is the latest fashion in ski-wear.  The Independent reports:
The deeply competitive world of downhill skiing is being rocked by a heated dispute about plastic underwear and whether wearing such garments on the slopes gives racers an unfair aerodynamic advantage over their rivals.
The row erupted last week when the Slovenian skier Tina Maze finished second at a major Austrian event only to be accused afterwards of wearing banned plastic undergarments which might have given her an edge over her competitors.
I wonder how you iron it?

And, no, I'm sorry but I couldn't find a picture ...
