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 name suggests, you can go dancing in this bra or wear it during your daily activities because the Bra-Cha-Cha has a one-inch thick No-Slip Strip that adheres to the back so the front stays up. Spanx also revolutionized the shape of the cups by turning them upside down, creating a secure fit. And yes, this strapless bra is available in sizes up to a 38D!
Clap on! Clap off! Clap on, clap off … your girl’s bra. Imagine I was singing that. The Clap-Off Bra is a brilliant gift idea for lazy men who don’t want to put in all that extra work to undo a bra. You can make one for the special lady in your life this Valentine’s Day
by following these ridiculously complicated instructions
. Oh, and you may want to consider ditching that giant red bow. Most women prefer for their boobs not to look like a Christmas gift. (FYI, the video is sort of NSFW.) [Instructables

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 seconds. Wait, what? At any rate, the Lingerie Dement line, which translates as “insane lingerie,” uses magnetic clasps for closure instead of traditional hooks. Matching panties even come with magnets at the hips, making it a snap to take them off. The company calls the line “romantic and naughty,” and says the magnets are “very strong.” Celebrity stylist Sam Saboura commented: “There’s kind of a fun quality to undressing someone in an intimate way, and this would give that tear-away effect.” This “fun quality” of undressing will set you back, though. The panties alone start at around $100 and the whole line is currently only available in France. [via DailyMail] Keep reading »
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, which is available for purchase for only $29.95. A small price to pay for the peace of mind that you and your man will be safe should we be hit by a nuclear warhead. That would be an interesting date. “She saved my life with her bra!” But we’re hoping that doesn’t happen, so I’m thinking … fun party trick. “Watch me deploy my bra!” [Newser] Keep reading »
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 souls without the special spectacles, the WonderBra ad is just a slightly blurry image of Brazilian model Sabraine Banando — not that anyone will complain.
Clever, yes, but we’re of the opinion that the less boob-age we see in any dimension in public, the more novel it is in private. [AdRants] Keep reading »
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 lengths to which women will go to in order to look attractive by society’s demanding standards.” Check out some of her other creations here.

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 La Perla. For the line, due out in November, Gaultier has resurrected the cone bra—something your lover probably hasn’t seen on you yet. (If he has: impressive.) Check out some more images after the jump.

Welcome to Would You Rather, a game in which we concoct hypothetical style dilemmas and ask you to choose which option’s worse.
Would you rather … never wear a bra again or never put on makeup for the rest of your life? The key question here is at which point does burden outweigh pleasure? Bras might not be a fun thing to wear most of the time, but they do hold your boobs in, and they can be fun to wear. Same goes for makeup (not the boob part)—cosmetics can make you look pretty and can be enjoyable, but are also a bit of a pain to apply everyday, and for a lot of us, clogs pores and makes our true skin worse. So … what would it be? Keep reading »
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 so much that we stuck them onto our bare chesticles in an overly optimistic attempt to eliminate the need for real bras. Oh silly us. Unsurprisingly, stickers still don’t make good bras. Keep reading »
They may take our boobs, but we’ll never take a Freedom Bra. [Refinery 29]
