Girl Talk: Why I Had Breast Reduction Surgery

My birth control is ruining my figure. It’s not so much the extra pounds the Pill has added to my frame -- seven pounds, if we’re counting -- it’s the extra cleavage that I can’t stand. I know most women would kill for overflowing bra cups. If you’d talked to me twenty years ago, whe…

Last 31 Days Of 2008: Get A Bra Fitting

We already suggested that you should get rid of your gross underwear, but we also think it's time to get some new bras. You may not know this, but you, like most women, are probably wearing the wrong size. A bra fitting at a reputable lingerie shop (the H&M underwear section doesn't count)…

Bras For Men…Feel Tight & Good

First we heard about mantyhose, then about spanx-like six-pack undershirts, and now...bras for men? A Japanese online shop called Wishroom sold over 300 men’s bras in its first two weeks after launching last month. Like mantyhose and the 6-pack undershirt, these bras seem to be marketed not at cross-dressers or gay men, but…

Victoria’s Secret: She’s Giving You A Rash!

Victoria’s got a secret. Formaldehyde, the same stuff that preserves corpses, may be giving your boobs a lift, a rash, and even permanent scars. A few women are claiming they developed medical issues from wearing the “Angel’s Secret Embrace” and “Very Sexy Extreme Push Up" bras, and want Vicky to compensate them. Lead…

Fashion Slideshow: Quirky Lingerie

I'm not one to transform into a sex vixen when she dons some Victoria's Secret bustier. And my last striptease? Like Flashdance on rewind. Give me some granny panties and a sports bra, however, and I'm a star. Here, some picks for ladies who prefer less traditional underthings to the super-sexy stuff. So, throw one…

The Daily Squeeze: Special Police Bras, Circumcision And AIDS, And Smart Spiders

Thousands of German policewomen have received "bulletproof bras." Basically, they're just bras that say "Polizei" (police) and don't have metal parts, which could impale the wearer if hit by a bullet. [Reuters]…

Bras And Bull Semen Are Being Exported To Iran

Did you know the U.S. exports stuff to Iran? Lots and lots of stuff, in fact. During the time that President Bush has been in office, at least $158 million worth of cigarettes alone were sent there. "Our sanctions are targeted against the regime, not the people," said Adam Szubin, director of the Treasury Department'…

Wonderbra Plans The Largest Lingerie Shoot Ever

Wonderbra is trying to organize the world's biggest underwear shoot ever, and let me tell you, there is a lot of competition in this category. They're looking for 1,000 women in London to photograph in their new line of bras. We smell a bigger version of Dove's Campaign for Real Beauty. At least with so…

Cheaper Can Be Better

We didn't know anything about bras until we got properly fitted. Before that, we had really only ever bought them from places like Kmart, Target, and Filene's Basement, where no one cares whether you buy the wrong size. And even though we love the lacy bras we bought, we may have…

National Geographic takes us back through the history of bras. Did you know that by forgoing wearing corsets during World War I, women freed up enough steel to build two battleships?

Crave: Doo-Dads For Your Brassiere

I have this dress that I love that I can only wear a nude bra with because it's made of a light, thin jersey fabric. But I can't really wear this dress because the top of my nude bra always peeks through. Very irritating. Luckily, I'm not the only woman who's had this problem, because…

Crave: Bare Back

Did you watch American Inventor? I didn't. But apparently there was this genius invention on the show -- a completely backless bra. The design is so simple, it's pretty crazy nobody had thought of it before. But hooray for Elaine Cato, the inventor, because Maidenform thought it was pretty great and they started selling her…

The Daily Squeeze: Circumcision, Crazy Bras, And Producing Heirs

The rate of infant male circumcision has decreased significantly since the 1930s and 1940s, at least in the U.K. Some people see circumcision as a form of genital mutilation, and there are even operations that reverse the procedure. Sounds like fun, doesn't it? [The Times, U.K.] Soroptimist, a volunteer organization, held its annual…
