A couple weeks ago, I bought a bright red lacy bra without giving it too much thought–it fit me and it was on sale, so why not? But I soon found out my impulse purchase comes with some delightful side effects: I feel like a total bombshell whenever I wear it, no matter what clothing I’m wearing or what I’m doing. It’s like a sexy little secret. It’s amazing. I think everyone should get to experience the Red Bra Effect, so I rounded up 10 fabulous red bras in sizes 28A to 46HH. Click through to check ‘em out!
According to the song from Annie, you’re never fully dressed without a smile. But I say, you’re never fully dressed until you’ve got something slinky and sexy on underneath. We recommend a lacy slip, bustier or bra-lette for letting your sensual side show (or not show, as it were). Check out our picks above!

I hate wearing bras. Ugh. My full C cup ta-tas require the utmost support. Whenever I start complaining about how girls have to wear uncomfortable underwear I just remember my foremothers who had to wear all that full-bodied corset BS that I am pretty sure was damn close to torture. In order to quell my undergarment woes I decided to do a bit of research into how women’s underwear has evolved throughout the past century. From corsets to the Wonder Bra, it’ll never be any surprise to me that when feminist decided to rebel against gender norms they burned their bras. Read more…
This photo is from the National Potato Chip Institute convention of 1948, an event which apparently involved fitting a model with a surprisingly lovely potato chip bra. I’m really not sure why this concept never caught on. I mean, a bra you can snack on while watching TV? Life dream status. [Buzzfeed]

Aarthi Ramamurthy and Michelle Lam, the founders of a new lingerie website called True & Co., worked at Microsoft before making the leap into the world of undergarments, which might explain their approach to identifying the perfect bra: they built an algorithm. Here’s how it works: True & Co. customers answer a series of questions about cup size, favorite brands, clothing fit, breast shape, and even weight loss patterns; based on this information, the website suggests a customized selection of bras. For a $45 deposit, you get five bras to try on at home, and if you don’t like any of them, you can send them back for free and get your deposit back. Sounds pretty sweet, huh? I just filled out the questionnaire, and while I was impressed with the thoroughness, I did notice that their size options were fairly limited, and to be honest, I’m not sure I’ll ever get on board with bra shopping online, even with a money back guarantee. So, what do you all think? Will you be giving True & Co. a try? [Gizmodo]
