A woman was mind-blown when she found out the "secret power" of red underwear.
In case you're wondering, we're talking about a fashion hack.
Elizabeth Zemlyanoy has been avoiding wearing the bright-coloured lingerie under white clothing.

And it's not strange to think that the red colour will pop under the white garment.
Many people opt for seamless briefs or nude-coloured underwear to avoid a fashion disaster.
But the 20-year-old recently did a test and realised she has been wrong about red underwear.
"I was today years old when I found out you can wear red undies under white pants," she wrote on her now-viral TikTok video.
To prove that she is right about the theory, Liz wears a cherry red coloured shorts before putting on a white striaght-leg pants.
The fabric of her trousers is thin enough to show the pocket lining.
But surprisingly, her boxer goes undetectable under the trousers.
The incredible fashion hack is actually down to a simple optical illusion.
Colour expert and Fashion Institute of Technology professor Jada Schumacher, explained why red is better than nude or beige.
"Many of the nudes available are a sort of synthetic, light skin colour, which is too pasty for most people," she told Wirecutter.
"A light-coloured bra against darker skin will stand out under a shirt."
Red, however, is neither light nor dark and it suits a wide range of skin tones.
She continued: "It is in the middle of the colour value spectrum."
Prof Schumacher suggested people with darker skin tone could pick a burgundy or darker wine colour.
People who have medium-toned skin colour are best for true red colours; and people with fair-coloured skin will need a "less strong colour with more lightness in it".
So the next time when you wear a white dress or white trousers, you can consider the advice and try it out.
