Watch Guys Try — And Fail — To Guess The Price Of A Basic Black Bra

Guys Guess The Prices Of Bras
"You have to buy, like, two of these a month, right?"

What happens when you round up a bunch of guys and ask them to guess the prices of women’s products like herbal shampoo, tampons, and bras? Well, you find out that men are hilariously misinformed about how much we’ve been paying for these things ($10 for a bra? I wish!), not to mention how often we buy them. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to call my boyfriend and ask how much he thinks my bras cost, because I have a feeling his response will be LOL-worthy. [YouTube]

No Airbrushing At Aerie

I don’t know about you, but every year after I watch the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, I feel like shit about my body for at least a solid month.

My trigger happens to be the VS Fashion Show. So today, when I learned about American Eagle’s new #AerieREAL campaign, I was thrilled.

You might remember hearing about lingerie brand Wacoal’s novel bra vending machines, which debuted in Japan this past year, and thinking, No woman will ever want to buy a bra without trying it on. You were correct. Even though the machine features a bust-sizing chart and promises that the wireless bras are more comfortable, easier to fit and  more affordable at $30 than the wired, in-store bras, women just didn’t buy. The machine, which was being tested in Osaka for the past few weeks, only sold seven bras from November to December 20th. A spokesperson for the company said that although the machine was a bust, many women noticed it and peeked in.

“It must be something that takes time to get used to, but I would like women to see how it feels to buy a bra from a vending machine,” the spokesperson said.

Yeah, a bra is just one of those things that you have to try on. I think they should just fill that sucker with artisan chocolate snacks and call it a day. [AJW]

In case your underwear wasn’t imposing enough already, Microsoft is now working on a “smart bra” that can monitor your heart and skin to prevent overeating. Prototypes of the bras are embedded with sensors that seek out changes in the body’s stress levels and inform the bra’s wearer (How does it inform them exactly? Flashing lights? A robot voice telling them to put that donut down?). Since high stress can trigger emotional eating, its goal is to get women to stop and think before chowing.

According to a paper explaining the results of a project in which four women wore the prototype bras, the stress-level warnings “served as a health intervention to encourage the person to be more active or consume less food.” Slightly creepy, but okay. Keep reading »

chinese high school bans colorful bra and panties
  • A Chinese high school has banned girls from wearing “anything but flesh-colored bras and underwear” because colorful delicates are showing through the school’s uniform. Solid-colored bras will evoke one punishment and for patterned bras the punishment will be even higher. Boys, it seems, are still allowed to wear boxer briefs from every color of the rainbow.  Here’s an idea, chuckleheads: maybe get thicker school uniforms?! [Shanghaiist via The Gloss]
  • Following an incident where a Black-skinned pageant winner was de-crowned because her Latina heritage could not be confirmed [fourth item], the Little Miss Hispanic Delaware pageant will require contestants to show papers proving they are Latina. This, of course, is problematic because Latinas can also be Black, white, redheaded, etc. and Latina heritage isn’t always something that is documented. [Feministing] Keep reading »
