Ladies, did you know there are special bras designed to keep you cool during hot summer days or those that will help you quit smoking? Keep reading to find out more unusual bras.
Triumph, the company behind a number of strangely innovative brassiere designs, just came out with a new undergarment to keep women cool during a hot summer day. The âSuper Cool Braâ features built-in gel icepacks in each cup that remain soft while frozen, giving the wearer a âsuper cool feeling,â according to the Japanese manufacturer. And for whatever reason, the bra is designed to look like a fishbowl. What other bras have alternative purposes? From a bra with hidden pockets to one that double as a gas mask, we run down the most multifunctional underwear.
The Joey Bra, a creation inspired by Facebook posts about women losing their phones at bars and parties the night before, is a bra that features a side strap pocket to keep a âcellphone, ID, and key on the side of your bra with easy access,â according to the companyâs website. It does not, however, address the issue of having a rectangular lump sticking out from the wearerâs side when fully dressed. Nor does it accommodate the vast spectrum of sizes in the bra-wearing world: the Joey Bra comes in small, medium, and large, instead of traditional bra sizes.
This bra, which we have nicknamed the âAnti-Feminism Bra,â is another creation from Triumph, which came up with the undergarment as a solution to Japanâs falling birthrate. The âKonkatsu Braââtranslation: âMarriage Hunting braââfeatures a timer showing how many days are left for the wearer to get married, and yes, the countdown timer can be set by the woman, not the company. Once the bra is âset off,â the only way it can be stopped is by inserting an engagement or wedding ring between the cups. There isnât enough space in this space even to get started on our rant against the âHusband Hunter,â so weâll remain silentâthat is, until the wedding march sounds (no really, the bra actually plays music once a wedding band is inserted).
Coated in liquid titanium (no joke), this bra releases the scent of lavender to soothe its wearerâs cigarette-smoking urges. It also contains jasmine, which alters the taste of cigarette smoke. And the titanium? âTo break down cigarette smoke,â according to the company that released it.
Probably the most practical bra on the list, the breast cancer-detecting bra is able to discover cancer before a tumor begins growing and also evaluates the effectiveness of treatment, according to developers at the United Kingdomâs University of Bolton. The technology, which relies on a microwave antenna woven into the fabric, can sense any abnormal temperature changes in breast tissue.
A bra that transforms into two gas masks? The inventors of this seemingly impossible gas mask bra won the Ig Nobel Public Health Prize in 2009 for their invention of a brassiere that could double as two gas masks. âYou have to be prepared all the time, at any place, at any moment, and practically every woman wears a bra,â said the Ukrainian inventor, who studied the effects of the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear disaster for years. She noted that the bra would be useful in many instances, including a riot, freak dust storm, or nuclear disaster.
Some women really, really love to golf. Some women love to golf so much they keep a miniature putting green next to their heart, and their breasts. The âNice Cup in Braâ, a corset that when removed, serves as a 1.5-meter putting mat. If youâre ever feeling desperate to swing some clubs, and also to get spontaneously topless, remove the bra, unroll the âgreen,â and simply aim for either one of two cups at the end of it.
While not technically a bra, as it doesnât have any cups, this âanti-braâ is to be worn at night to ward off cleavage wrinkles. What are cleavage wrinkles? Theyâre formed between the breasts from old age and sleeping on oneâs side. Designed by a Dutch woman who noticed this phenomenon, âLa Decolletteâ is a harness-type top that features two cutouts and a wide strap in the front to keep the area between the ladies wrinkle free.
While using similar technology to the breast cancer-detection bra, the âSmart Memory Braâ detects a womanâs arousal by monitoring breast temperature. When breasts get to a certain âarousedâ temperatureâwhatever that meansâthe reactive expanding foam cups squeeze the breasts together, creating more cleavage. (Weâre continuing to fight back a rant against said âsmartâ brasâ¦)
Yet another Triumph creation, this undergarment has a solar panel attached to it, so you can charge your cellphone, computer, iPhone, etc., as youâre running errands or going for a jog. It also comes with refillable water-filled pouches to drink from, so your bra keeps you hydrated all day long. This sounds like a particularly heavy and dangerousâif, say, the charger and water come in contact with each otherâ¦and your breastsâbrassiere, but at least itâs made from top-quality organic cotton! source
