As any of us who have tried on clothing in a dressing room can attest, if there's only one mirror instead of a three-way, vital ass-related insight can be lost. But not everyone is sitting back and passively accepting this as fact. To combat the problem, the American Rag store in Hollywood installed an Ass Cam that allows shoppers to catch a glimpse of their own scenery from behind, reports the blog mondette. The camera projects an image onto a screen embedded in the mirror, so no more twisting around in order to scope the goods.

The only downside can be that sometimes, ignorance is bliss. KTLA reports:

"I haven't seen anyone come out sobbing, but some were definitely devastated, because some jeans don't look great on some butts," American Rag buyer Jennifer Althouse told KTLA.

Would you want an Ass Cam in the dressing room while trying on jeans?
