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…

Finally, A Stay-Put Strapless Bra

If you’ve worn a strapless bra at least once in your life, then you’re familiar with the “jug tug,” the act of constantly repositioning your breasts in a strapless bra. This spring and summer, though, you’ll be able to keep your breasts, bra, and hands where they belong with Spanx’s Bra-Cha-Cha Strapless Bra. As the…

8 Famous Women & Their Most Nipple-y Moments

It’s frightfully cold outside–and you know what happens when it’s cold: nipples come popping out. Sweater weather often brings on the arrival of perky, pointy nipples, and many famous celebrity women find their nipples standing at attention. After the jump, frisky celeb ladies caught with hard nips.

Magnetic Lingerie Makes Undressing A Snap

Usually before they graduate from high school — or at least college — most people have figured out how to unhook a bra without too much hassle. But for the finger fumblers out there, a French lingerie company has designed some bras that even a toddler could tear off a woman in a matter of…

This Bra Will Save Your Life

In this day and age, you never know what kind of disaster you may encounter, so better to be safe than sorry with the “Emergency Bra.” Dr. Elena Bodnar invented a bra that can be converted into a pair of gas masks. She even won an “Ig Nobel” prize for her little invention,…

You’ll Need 3-DD Glasses For Wonderbra’s New 3D Boobs Billboard

Boobies in 3D. How could bra manufacturers have not thought of this earlier? It seems unreal, but Wonderbra just introduced their first 3D breasts billboard in London. Onlookers require 3DD (get it?) glasses to fully enjoy the Full Effect Wonderbra, which claims to boost your girls up another two cup sizes. For us poor soul…

Ouch! This Bra Pinches!

If you thought wearing a bra was uncomfortable before, imagine strapping on artist Laura Ann Jacobs clawed brassiere! It would, ahem, make you pretty crabby, no? According to AOL’s Weird News, “Her body of work includes more than 100 unusual, ornate sculptures of bras and corsets that are meant to poke fun at the extreme…

Would You Wear Gaultier’s Pointy-Boobed Design For La Perla?

The problem with deciding to “spice things up in the bedroom” is that once you start adding new props and costumes, you quickly run through a hackneyed repertoire—doctor, nurse, crotchless panties, crotchless pantyhose, nipple claps, etc. Maybe that’s what Jean Paul Gaultier was thinking when he signed up to design a collection for lingerie giant…

Beauty Test Drive: Bare Lifts Braless Bra

One of these days we’re going to wise up and give up on the whole braless bra concept. But apparently that day hasn’t arrived yet, because we got super excited when Bare Lifts came in the mail. The adhesives promised to be an “Instant Breast Lift” and we trusted them. In fact, we trusted them…

Watch Out For Lady Gaga’s Assault Weapon Bra

Another day, another Lady Gaga-doing-something-outrageous moment. Now, she’s wearing a bra outfitted with guns on the cover of Rolling Stone. Must be the same number she wore in “Alejandro.” Between this and Katy Perry’s whipcream bra, ladies’ boobs are getting pretty dangerous these days. [ONTD]…

BareLifts: Solution For Swimsuit Cleavage Dilemmas

A few days ago, I posted a “Worth The Splurge” suggestion of a Zimmerman corset swimsuit that I had fallen in love with. Readers, I should have listened to you when you told me, “All I can think of when I look at this suit is how quickly a nip slip is going to happen.

The Little Bra Company Focuses On Your Little Ladies

I found the prettiest bra while trolling for lacy lingerie the other day. It was delicate but sturdy, lacy but not cheap-looking, and I wanted it. Unfortunately, it’s made by The Little Bra Company, which a saleswoman told me focuses exclusively on A and B cup bras. My loss, your gain, Itty Bitty Titty Committee.

Built-In Placket Bras Solve Boob Issues

About a year ago, I wore a black wrap dress to a job interview. As I prepared to leave the house, I silently congratulated myself on the appropriateness of the outfit, noting the mid-knee length and the tailored but not too tight skirt. So when I looked down an hour later, midway through a sentence…

Would You Grow Rice In Your Bra?

Sometimes there are actually no words for the creations people dream up. Lingerie maker and retailer Triumph International Japan just designed a bra that also doubles as a planter, so you can grow rice right from your bosom.
