Heidi Klum doesn't have huge disgusting lumps of fat hanging down her chest last time i saw her. Then again...i was kinda hypnotised by her long legs, so i guess i wouldn't know.

what the heck is "biomechanical gauging"?
*sighs* you know what would really be nice? a freckle-sized anti-grav device that negates ever having to wear a bra again. i'm thinking playtex would prolly buy up the patent and then squash it, tho.

my best friend is a junkie.
what does your best friend do?

I believe its called a hand, though 2 work better. For best results, let someone else do it, so YOUR hands are free to go about their daily business. I'd recommend Robo Sapien for it. His hands are uber.

Question Mark

Surely they could design something that is comfortable yet supportive and not have to rely on "top down" support such as straps. Why not some of that "memory foam" like they use for mattresses with some thin strips of soft yet stiff plastic to support from below? The foam provides the comfort while the plastic strips would provide support and there would be no straps going over the shoulder.

Now I suppose I'll have to sketch some design concepts. [img]graemlins/beigesmilewinkgrin.gif[/img]
Everything may be explained by a conspiracy theory. All conspiracy theories are true.

No matter how thinly you slice it, it's still bologna.

I still think having a robot to hold your breasts is the best solution.

It's all in the laws of physics and the center of gravity. Without the top strap, the basic supporting shape would be an upside-down capital L, and things would just fall over. You'd need either some support underneath and away from the body (to shift the center of gravity under the... objects ) or you'd need a very sturdy side support to prevent it from falling over at all... which may or may not be comfortable, depending on who the maker of the strapless bra in question is.

Ermmm.... what were we discussing again?

(suppliers to Victoria's Secret, Playtex and Maidenform) and by biomechanist Deirdre McGhee at the University of Wollongong in Australia. A British professor, David Morris, teaches "bra studies" at De Montfort University in Leicester, and Hong Kong's Polytechnic University recently created a degree program in bra studies.

Anyone else think this post reads like a book report? Giving sources and all - I was looking for the bibliography...mostly looking for examples... [img]smile.gif[/img]
