The Japanese Have Invented Ice Bras To Keep Breasts Cool

Yes, there is more important news about President Barack Obama expressing his public support for marriage equality. But these are bras with ice in them.

Aerie Is Selling Bras As Shirts Now

I love a corset, personally. But when is a corset top not really a corset and actually just a bra? That's a delicate question the folks over at Aerie should be asking themselves, since they've launched a line of "Concert Bras," which they say are made to be worn under clothes or, you know, o…

8 Things You Should Never Do Braless

Recently, Miley Cyrus was caught doing a little braless car shopping. The no-bra thing wasn’t totally terrible on its own, but her ratty, old T-shirt sent things over the edge.

“What’s Your Nude?” Campaigns For More Brown Bras

If you head to the store looking for a nude bra, you'll see shades of cream, tan, and light pink: in other words, the "nude" options are tailored predominantly to Caucasian skin tones. Tara Raines thinks it's about time bra makers embraced a more diverse definition of nude, which is why she started the "What'…

Victoria’s Secret Launches High-End Collection

Victoria's Secret may be the biggest mass merchandiser of lingerie, but as anyone who has worn their bras can attest to, their offerings have a tendency to be shoddy at best. Sure, the deals they do on their underwear are nice (3 for $10 is pretty much unbeatable), but VS is undeniably on the lower…

Lady Gaga Gone Braless

Her vagina piercing was all covered up when she stepped out in London, but Lady Gaga's latest fashion masterpiece highlighted her other assets. I'm talking about her cheekbones, which were dusted in mint green rouge. Oh, and her girls were looking lovely as well underneath her see-through lace tunic, sans bra. She looks like a…

Lingerie For Little Girls? Yep, A French Company Went There

Forget about candy-colored bra and panty sets from Target; there's ickier underwear for little girls afoot. It's lingerie, to be exact, although the French line Jours Aprés Lunes calls it "loungerie," because it is for lounging around instead of, uh, looking sexy prior to f**king . Why, praytell, would girls ages four through 12 want…

Underwear is a funny little mystifying thing we all wear but hardly ever talk about. That was pretty true for me, too, until I had drinks (lots of drinks) with one of the panty geniuses over at Freshpair. The girl knows her thongs from her bikini briefs and she is sweet as pie. Brianna's going…

For one number, she donned this black latex bodysuit with flashing red lights around the boobs. This might have thrilled in the early 2000s, but with Lady Gaga's fireworks spewing bra

Does A Nine-Year-Old Need A Padded Bra?

Oh, Abercrombie and Fitch. We never took the preppy clothing company as the arbiter of good taste and class, but we think they've perhaps gone way over the line by producing a collection of girls' bathing suit tops--aimed at ages 8 to 14--with padded bras included. Just what, pray tell, does a little kid need…
