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.

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 »
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] Keep reading »
Working out is a necessary part of life, and whether you’re a marathon runner or an elliptical pro, one fact remains the same: You can’t exercise in the nude. We’re always interested in cute, affordable workout clothes because, though we don’t want to spend money on stuff we’re just going to sweat in, it’s important to be happy with what we’re wearing. Now, thanks to Forever 21′s new line of workout paraphernalia, we can stock up on everything from socks to cute sports bras and spend the money we save on regular clothes that show off our hard work.
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 second you get in the water, that suit is going down.” My suit came today, and I should have known to order a size up because of my extra large boobs. The cups fit OK, but they’re not really holding up my breasts. This, however, is a problem I (and other D-cup ladies) have with a lot of swimsuits. So, before I give up, there’s one last thing to try: BareLifts. There are several of bra-less sticker products out there; however, the adhesives on BareLifts are waterproof, so you can wear them under a bikini or one-piece. For those of you out there with larger breasts who have never been able to pull off a string triangle top, you might want to give these doo-dads a try. [$10, BareLifts]

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. The ever-helpful (and largely small-chested) sales staff at Journelle, my new favorite lingerie spot, raved about the fit, making me all the more jealous of those of you who’ve got the appropriate amount of lady lumps to indulge.
