Tricky Bras For Tricky Dresses

I’ve always been a bit envious of friends who could go sans bra without feeling crazy self-conscious. That level of hippie-esque chest freedom, I figured, has to be awesome.

So, I tried it and going braless is definitively not awesome, if you ask me. That said, being married to a bra shouldn’t keep… More »


Women Who Rock: Ida Rosenthal

March is National Women’s History Month, and we’re celebrating by sharing a lady we admire each weekday.

IDA ROSENTHAL (1866-1973)

Ida Rosenthal has had an uplifting effect on virtually every woman in America, though her name may not be instantly recognizable. Rosenthal was the inventor of the modern bra. She was also the… More »


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, when… More »


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.

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… More »


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 by Roberta… More »


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… More »


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

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’s… More »

Crave: Treat Your Chest To The Best


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 been onto something by… More »

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… More »
