Remember when I bought a pack of Freedom Bras last year and gave them a hesitantly positive review? That was before I tried the Genie Bra, which led me to throw out all my Freedom Bras and rescind my hesitantly positive review.
Freedom Bras were like the guy who isn’t great but isn’t horrible, so you casually date him for like 3 years but secretly wish he’d give you more support and also you’re a little nervous to be seen in public with him. Genie Bras are like that amazing relationship you thought only existed in fairytales, where the guy fits you perfectly, gives you constant support, and even sufficiently covers your nipples for trips to the grocery store. Sorry, I got confused by my own analogy, but what I’m trying to say is, the Genie Bra is the real deal. Keep reading »
If you have smaller breasts, it can be hard to find bras made for your body that aren’t made for preteens, because for some reason the lingerie industry has yet to discover that women’s breasts and bodies come in all sizes. After finding a slew of bras that are available in larger sizes, I got a few emails requesting bras for smaller breasts. I found 20 sexy, grown up bras that are either explicitly made for smaller breasts in the AAA-A range, or are at least available in smaller sizes. See all 20 sexy bras on The Gloss…
If your tits could tweet, what would they say? Well, now you can kind of, sort of, find out – OgilvyOne Athens has created a bra that tweets every time it’s unclasped, giving your special list of followers a heads up that you’re free-boobin’ it. The thing is, 99 percent of the time that I take my bra off, it’s to do something boring, like pass out topless in bed, alone, while eating a Talenti ice cream bar. Anyway, the truth is, the tweeting bra isn’t available to the public, but it is being used by a Greek actress for the next few weeks, and her tits tweet a link to the Nestlé Fitness website, which offers tips on how to do a breast self-exam. Definitely a more worthwhile message than “Right now, Amelia is cupping her bare right boob while watching ‘Scandal.’” [Ad Week]
All those badass Rosie the Riveters who took over traditionally male jobs during WWII were hiding a secret under their clothes: They were wearing plastic bras! Yup, apparently the “Saf-T-Bra” (as it was dubbed) was a garment for women working in factories during the 1940s. Read more at The Gloss…
Many items come out of vending machines that are essential to my everyday life, like tampons and peanut M&Ms. If a new vending machine out of Japan takes hold, we’ll be able to get our brassieres on the quick, too. Lingerie brand Wacoal debuted their bra vending machine, which features a bust-sizing chart, at a store in the city of Shibuya, Japan. After you dispense your $30 into the machine and punch in your item choice on a keypad, your wireless bra is dispensed in clear baggies. Sure it’s a quirky idea, but bras are really something you want to make sure fit properly before you buy them. I’ll stick to M&Ms, thanks. [PSFK; Kotaku]
Welcome to another edition of Totally Coveted, our new whenever series documenting all the super ridiculous crap we want but (probably, most certainly) are too sensible to buy. Hey, a girl can dream — about $1,200 shoes — can’t she? Take a peek at what we’re coveting, and then tell us what you’re lusting after in the comments! Keep reading »
A standard traffic stop over a broken headlight turned into sexual abuse in Florida when a Lakeland police officer asked Zoe Brugger to lift up her shirt, pull her bra away from her chest, and shake it. He then decided that the first time had not been sufficient, so she was made to do it again. The best part?
He had literally no reason to have her do this. Keep reading »
A lingerie shop in Sundsvall, Sweden, is in trouble for requiring that employees wear placards revealing their boob size. A Swedish employment tribunal (which sounds more smiley and blond than frightening) found the company guilty of gender discrimination, and awarded employees financial compensation for the gaffe.

French lingerie line Valega made some weird boob cartoons to promote their Finally Together push up bra. The ads feature animated breasts (with arms and legs) joyfully reuniting. In this commercial, right and left breasts meet at the airport and engage in a highly disturbing nipple bumping squishfest. The other spots take place respectively at a ship dock and on the set of a TV game show. I’ve included them after the jump for your viewing pleasure (maybe pleasure isn’t the right word). Breast anthropomorphism frightens me. [Ad Week] Keep reading »
