Created by Dutch designer Daan Roosegaarde, the futuristic garment is made of smart fabrics which are usually opaque but become see-through once the wearer's heartbeat quickens.
The dress, named Intimacy 2.0, has already won the Dutch Design Award and China's Most Successful Design Award – and now it could be heading to the high street.
While a dress which illustrates when the wearer is aroused could be a useful dating tool, it seems other emotions could be revealed by the fashion version of the garment.
Roosegaarde is currently in talks to produce a version which responds whenever the wearer gets excited or embarrassed, although there's no word as to when the dress will be hitting the shops.
Daan – who describes his style of fashion as 'techno-poetry' – said of the fashion-forward item: 'Intimacy 2.0 is a fashion project exploring the relation between intimacy and technology.
'Technology is used here not merely functional but also as a tool to create intimacy as well as privacy on a direct, personal level which in our contemporary tech society is becoming increasingly important.'
