Every week, I get an email from Groupon Goods offering me a selection of deeply discounted products like earbuds and yoga mats and wine stoppers. I really need to unsubscribe from this email, because it’s turning me into one of those tragic women who goes into massive debt buying crap from the Home Shopping Network and is eventually buried in an avalanche of collectible teddy bears, but whatever. A few weeks ago my Groupon Goods email included a 3-pack of “Freedom Bras,” and I was instantly intrigued… Keep reading »
I don’t know about you all, but my lingerie budget is really cramping my everything-else budget. So I’m always thrilled to find a new outlet for my lingerie fetish and I am obsessed with Lace, the new lingerie line at ShoeDazzle. Yup, ShoeDazzle, the shoe-of-the-month club that you’ve probably seen Kim Kardashian promoting, sells sexy underthings. Nightgowns, bustiers, chemises and matching bra-and-panties sets can be bought (in sets only) for around $32 each. I’m loving the lacy, ultra-feminine looks, but you might fancy the seductive satin ones — and don’t even get me started on all the bustiers with straps for thigh-high stockings. Boo hoo for my single status … it’s your loss, boys! Now pardon me while I go stock my lingerie war chest. [ShoeDazzle.com Lace] Keep reading »
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. They are from Japan, and they were created in response to the shutdown of the country’s nuclear reactors following the Fukushima catastrophe. This means that Japanese citizens are encouraged to avoid using air conditioners. Finally — women will have a way to keep their breasts cool and nipples erect for days on end. Gentlemen, consider this a consolation prize while you sweat your balls off, because there is no such contraption for you … yet. Read more …
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, on their own.
Each of the 20 or so bras comes with the exact same descriptor: “Made to be seen. Made to dance. Layer under a tank or wear it on its own…” Looking at the three bras featured on the “Concert Bra” section of the site, I could see reasonably wearing the two on the right without a top over them. But the one on the left? It seems a tad revealing to be worn out in public to a non-beach-going area. But okay, let’s say you’re comfortable in that bra, would you wear one of the following, sans shirt, outside of your house?

This weekend, I was taking a cooking class with a friend when I was overcome with annoyance that my lips were chapped and my lip balm was tucked inside my purse all the way across the room. “Grr, I need lipbalm!” I whispered. “No problem!” my friend replied, reaching down the front her shirt and whipping out a tube of Chapstick.
We’re good enough friends that I don’t have any qualms with using Chapstick that was nestled between her bosoms (she later explained that the bra she was wearing is so roomy that she can store stuff inside the cups); but for those ladies who would prefer to store their miscellaneous crap alongside their own titties, there’s this miraculous invention: the Joey Bra! The Joey Bra has build-in pockets for stowing away everything from your credit cards to your iPhone, with no one the wiser. Why didn’t anyone think of this before? Genius! I’ll have to tell my friend to get one — as soon as she gets properly sized, that is. [$19.99, Joey Bra]
All bras are not created equal! Let’s take a look at some other over-the-shoulder boulder holders than dare to be different.
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. But hey, apparently she got a good deal on the car, so maybe her braless look was a carefully executed strategy.
Ladies, with certain articles of clothing, going braless can be totally appropriate. But there are some things you really shouldn’t do without a bra on. Check out our list so you can avoid Miley’s mistake. Read more …
