Revijour True Love Tester Bra: If It Ain’t True Love, It Ain’t Unhooking

True Love Tester Bra

Japanese lingerie company Ravijour has come up with a revolutionary albeit unusual piece of lingerie dubbed as the “True Love Tester Bra.” As its name implies, the brassiere comes with built-in sensors that monitors its wearer’s heart rate and vital stats. The sensors also keep track of the secretion of a certain hormone called Catecholamine, which apparently is secreted only when a women is truly in love.

Data on these stats are sent via Bluetooth to a smartphone that’s running the bra’s companion app, which measures heart rate elevation, to determine whether it’s the real deal or just a fling. When it’s deemed to be the former, the app will wirelessly unhook the bra.

Pokeball Bra: Gotta Keep ‘Em All In

Pokemon Bra

I don’t think you’ll be catching much of anything with these Pokeball bras unless you’re planning to wear just the bra (and nothing more) out in public. Of course, you’ll be getting a lot of attention and catching the eye of many, but it’ll probably be from the type of people you wouldn’t want it from.

These bras are crafted by Etsy seller Neon Wonderland and are geared for the true-blue Poke-fan. It won’t matter if you’re gifted or not in the chest area, because you can specify the padding level you want the brassiere to have when you place your order. Each Pokeball bra is encrusted in hundreds of rhinestones that will sparkle and shine with every move that you make.

They’re priced at $70 each.

World’s Biggest Bra is Up for Auction on eBay for a Good Cause

World's Biggest Bra

Ladies and gents, feast your eyes on the World’s Largest Bra, which is a mega-sized 1222B! But before we talk about this ginormous piece of lingerie, let’s talk about the events that made it happen.

Bigger isn’t always better except when it has something to do with a certain part of your body–and by that, I mean your heart. (Just in case you were thinking of something else, which I totally had no intention of making you do. Snicker.)

In all seriousness, having a figuratively bigger heart opens your eyes to the plights of others and the realities of the world. Cancer takes away so many precious lives every year, especially breast cancer, and the sad thing is that some of these lives could have been saved by treatment, had they made the discovery sooner. One way to do that is by getting regular check-ups. And one way to remind men and women to do that is through an awareness campaign, like the ones that the Breast Cancer Campaign is doing.

Some people decided to help out the BCA this year and they did so with extremely huge efforts: by making the 97-foot long brassiere you see above (and after the jump!)

Smart Bra Monitors Your Mammaries for Signs of the Big C

Smart Bra

The earlier you catch it, the better your chances of treating it and living a longer life. I’m talking about the Big C. Every year, over 50,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer–and a number of them will end up succumbing to the disease, depending on what stage their cancer is and on their overall health.

This is why I think the Breast Tissue Screening Bra is such a wonderful project! It’s a smart bra that’s equipped with sensors that can measure small temperature changes as they occur. The temperature spikes could mean nothing, but they could be caused by the growth of blood vessels which signal the growth of tumors. The sensors will take note of the chronology of cell cycles and use a pattern recognition system combined with statistical analysis software to pinpoint tumors even before mammograms can detect them.
