10 Alternative Uses for a Bra

We girls all know that the best feeling in the world is taking off our bra after a long day at school or work. Freedom! Well what if you took off your bra and then used it as a gas mask? In 2009, The Emergency Bra was awarded the Ig Nobel Public Health Prize. This amazing bra goes from holding up your lady bits to saving your life with just a few quick maneuvers. It works as bra that transforms into a gas mask in case of an air-contaminating emergency. I thought that was a brilliant idea.  So while on the subject of alternative uses for brassieres, I thought I would come up with a list of nifty ways that bras can serve other purposes.

You actually realize how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More people must read this and understand this side of your story. It's surprising you aren't more popular because you most certainly have the gift.

      Hello, I believe your website could possibly be having internet browser compatibility issues. Whenever I look at your site in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping issues. I merely wanted to give you a quick heads up! Besides that, wonderful blog!

    21. sütyen says:

      I’m amazed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and interesting, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is something too few folks are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy I came across this in my search for something concerning this.

      Unlike irritating wire ahh bra, when using The ahh bra golden brand sütyen, at the end of the day there will be no marks on the skin. The material of this sütyen – nylon and spandex – also makes it the most convenient sütyen for women because it feels soft and velvety for the skin. The four way stretch layout, knit on a hosiery machine with the best yarns, highly contributes to the comfort and ease.
