*Let's Talk Bras

The biggest scam in the history of the world is the bra.

Slideshow attention to the prices, if you will.

The most expensive bras generally offer the least support for those of us larger than, say, an A cup. So on the plus side, I will never ever be tempted to buy a $215 bra.

Even so, what could possibly cause a bra to cost that much? Material? Doubtful.

Here is my theory: the lingerie industry is preying on the insecurities of small-breasted women. The fancy bras are just fancy packaging.

So the question is: do you guys care about the packaging?

Yes, but I can't throw "And, no, WR, I don't have pictures." into every post.

I don't care about the packaging. And small breasted girls, whom I do not descriminate against, should simply go braless.

It's a very sexy look for small to medium breasted girl.

I'm more of an assman myself, and I might add that pantylines are perfectly acceptable if not preffered.

Most of us are too busy trying to get the bras' off to notice the color. We're just concerned with where the latches/hooks are located and the combination... ;)

As long as it doesn't look like something my granny would wear, I could care less. And I agree with Paul. Small breasted girls should go bra-less. I absolutely LOVE that look (as long as it's not trashy)...

Let me offer an opinion from those of us married for 10 years or so: packaging matters a lot. If you are used to seeing the same thing every day, seeing it with a new wrapping is as close as you get to new thing itself, especially if, like me, you take the vows seriously. So, it's a way to inject some excitement into a marriage. Plus, if my wife is wearing anything like what you linked to here, I know she's in a, well, a particular mood. So, it sends a message. I'm all for the packaging!

Packaging doesn't matter--it's just a cover.

eh, some guys like it when women wear something sexy.. but it doesnt matter where it came from.. im sure a $200 dollar bra looks just as good on the floor as a walmart bra...

Being a little dressed is sexier than completely naked. The packaging matters, but a lot of guys don't bother to notice. Their loss.

I've always thought bra's were a scam too. I rarely wear bra's because I can't afford them. LOL

Random - that was good! Being married ten years also I feel ya.

Okay as I watched the slideshow the comment nipple coverage caught my eye. AMEN! I can't stand to see a picture of someone and the first thing you notice are the pencil erasers poking out of her shirt!!
