Some women claim that men just need to be taught not to rape. They whine about the rape culture while redefining what rape is. Other women will take matters in to their own well-manicured hands by pumping their assailants full of lead. Fairytale endings. Then you have women who take self-defense to the runway, seeing a market opportunity. Like this lady who created a new bra that allows women to conceal a knife and pepper spray, among other things. Necessity is the mother of all badass lingerie. Put that under your t-shirt.
And of course the creator of this undergarment line is from Texas. What did you expect? Maine? LOL (no offense to anyone from Maine…)
I’ve never been more proud to be an American.
“It wasn’t done out of fear, to live in fear, it was done just to be prepared just in case,” she told WTVR.
Cutrona’s bra gives women a chance to store a special knife or pepper spray inside of a specially built pocket located on the front of the bra.
The ‘Booby Trap Bra’ is specifically designed for physical activity such as exercising or running.
‘Basically to look inside it, it would remind you of what you carry on your belt if you carry a knife,’ she told FOX 7.
‘There’s a magnet also attached in here so this doesn’t fall out. If you want to do 10 cartwheels, it’s nice and secure.’
This woman was attacked while running. Maybe that’s why feminists don’t run. But rather than letting a bad experience turn her into a victim, this woman came up with a brilliant idea. Bras, man. They help the ladies perk up the bewbs, now they hold weaponry. Seriously, can it get hotter? There have been bras for a while which are actually concealed carry holsters. Those are called “Flash Bang” bras. Yes, really.
Okay, that’s not what they really look like. But you were thinking it, so I included that gif for you. You’re welcome.
This is usually the part of the post where we say “This is why this story matters.” We’re going to do it here, because there is a double-D issue at hand. It’s the beautiful marriage of necessity meeting ingenuity, producing a product women can use. Why? Because weapons for women are the great equalizers. Say you’re not quite ready to pack heat with your ta-tas. Okay, that’s fair. Perhaps your .357 or .45 is too heavy for the bust. Well now you have style/weapon options for your brazier. Maybe a knife and pepper spray for the bra, and an IWB holster for your .45. See? Style options. The well-dressed/armed woman’s best friend.
Capitalism plus self-defense. Win.
