Study Confirms Brava System's Non-Surgical Breast Enhancement Effectiveness

Non-Surgical Breast Enhancement

A major study published in the November 2007 edition of the Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, reports that the majority of women who completed a study using the Brava System increased their breast size by 150cc, or well over one full breast size. This key finding was based on a medical study, which took place in Europe, conducted by Ingrid Schlenz, M.D. and Alexandra Kaider, M. Sc. The study is titled, The Brava External Tissue Expander: Is Breast Enlargement without Surgery a Reality, and reports that long-term breast enlargement is possible with the use of an external tissue expander such as the Brava System.

Of the 40 women (age 17-53 years old) who completed the study, the average participant used the system 11 hours per day for 18-1/2 weeks resulting in a median breast volume increase of 155cc. Each woman was informed of the necessary wear time needed to successfully complete the study and were extensively surveyed on various aspects of using the system. Overall, 75% were either "satisfied" or "very satisfied" with their results. They felt that their breasts were fuller and firmer. Over 85% stated that they would "recommend it to a friend". All of the surveyed participants indicated that "the treatment was painless."

All 40 women were closely monitored after post-treatment averaging 10-months (range, 7 to 20 months). It was shown that not only did they maintain their breast volume growth, but sustained it long after the stabilization phase.

This is a significant clinical result since previous published medical studies on the Brava System had demonstrated an average breast size of 100cc, or one-cup size, when wearing the Brava System for 10 weeks.

Brava was developed specifically in mind for those women who wish to have a non-surgical alternative to breast augmentation that is not only safe, but provides long-lasting healthy results. Tens of thousands of women worldwide have used the Brava System.

2008 Year in Review: Music

2008 Year in Review: Music

2008 saw even more lesbian and bisexual women making a splash in the music world then ever before – and more straight women trying to capitalize on the media's obsession with bisexuality.

Several bisexual and lesbian musicians released new music this year, and increasingly utilized digital resources to promote their work. Whether it's recording their own video blogs, or blogging on their MySpace pages, artists are clearly getting the hang of the internet marketing revolution, bringing them closer to their fans, and helping them reach new ones.

Here's an overview of some of the year's most notable releases, trends, music and moments related to lesbian/bi musicians.

The Katy Perry Syndrome

Despite the positive technological advances in artist promotion, other trends were all too familiar, such as the borrowed use of lesbianism for songs like Katy Perry's hit single, "I Kissed A Girl."

Hotly debated since it premiered, Perry's debut as a pop-rock singer utilized the kitsch of being a straight woman "gone bad" by singing, "I kissed a girl and I liked it / Hope my boyfriend don't mind it" and "Don't mean I'm in love tonight."

By trivializing the kiss of another woman in the hugely commercially successful song (which was nominated for a Grammy in early December), Perry became the poster woman for bisexuality. Unfortunately, the song, as catchy as it may be with its electro-synth beats and major chord chorus, portrays bisexuality as a drunken moment of naughty behavior.

This concept was furthered by Perry's statements to the press that largely consisted of jokes about who she might kiss had she have the chance, ranging from 16-year-old Miley Cyrus to "I like to kiss boys, but there is no doubt in my mind if Angelina Jolie or Gisele Bündchen came a callin', who wouldn't pucker up?"

In the same vein, the performer often speculated to be bisexual, Pink, raised eyebrows when she divorced her husband and engaged in a lesbian lip-lock with herself a section of her music video, "Sober."

Scenes from Pink's "Sober" music video

Symbolism aside, it was an odd choice for someone who has in the past touted her relationships with women, but more recently went on the record to declare her straightness. In October, she told the press, "I'm not gay so I guess I would not try a relationship with a woman. I didn't say I haven't experimented but I love men too much to make it a permanent thing."

It would appear, then, that Pink has utilized her butch aesthetic to drum up interest and shock from the mainstream public, which also happened to bring her a lesbian fan base.

Hit songwriter Lady GaGa debuted her first album, The Fame, in 2008 with the club track "Just Dance" garnering a lot of applause from the gay community.

In an interview with HX Magazine, GaGa said she was boy and "girl-crazy," saying "It really depends on where I am. I love men, I love women and I love sex, but I'm actually pretty introverted right now because I'm so enveloped in my work, and it's hard to let anybody near that."

She has yet to discuss her sexuality further, despite being interviewed several times in both the gay and mainstream press.

Much like Lady GaGa, Jess Origliasso of the Australian sister duo, The Veronicas, has spoken very little about her bisexuality, but has been photographed with out MTV VJ Ruby Rose, which was rumored to be a romantic involvement. Her interest in women was further discussed when The Veronicas released the video for "Take Me On The Floor," which featured women dancing close and kissing at a nightclub.

When asked about her sexuality and the video by Australia's The Herald Sun, Jess replied, "If a celebrity doesn't come out and make a statement about their sexuality they're a 'fake lesbian...'

I'm not going to be tricked into feeling like I have to make a statement about something because everyone wants confirmation. I'll just live my life how I want. If they want to call me a fake lesbian and degrade my sexuality and my choices, go ahead, I'll just ignore it."

Similarly, both Katie Melua and Shelby Lynne addressed their sexualities this year, with Melua telling the press not to ask about it ("People can think whatever they like ... I like to keep some mystique around my public image."), while Lynne told The Advocate it shouldn't matter who she sleeps with.

"People are going to come up with whatever they want to come up with on their own," Lynne said. "I don't have to make announcements. Come on!"

Mainstream success

While some artists were not interested in discussing their private lives, others were more open to addressing their sexuality, including Australian singer, Sia, who came out rather inconspicuously to U.K.'s Attitudes Magazine when she divulged she was involved in a serious relationship with a woman, later to be identified as J.D. Samson of Le Tigre.

Sia's bisexuality was treated as a non-issue of sorts for the singer, who told AfterEllen.com that she'd only dated men up until meeting J.D.

"The thing is I feel kind of straight because she's kind of like a boy," she said. "[My love interest] thinks I'm straight. She's like, 'You're straight; it's just that your girlfriend is gay.' So I'm straight, it's just that my boyfriend's a girl? She's like, 'I don't care, whatever you'd like.'"

Labels aside, Sia's 2008 album Some People Have Real Problems was a hit, reaching number 26 on the Billboard 200 and spawning singles "The Girl You Lost," "Day Too Soon" and "Soon We'll Be Found." She also had a song on the Sex and the City film soundtrack, and performed on several late night talk shows.

Another Aussie transplant, Missy Higgins, achieved success in 2008 with her album, On a Clear Night.

Despite being well-known and award-winning in her home country, Missy was a relative newcomer to the U.S. this year, and her singles like "Where I Stood" and "Steer" were picked up to play on shows like Grey's Anatomy. The album has remained consistently high on Billboard charts, reaching number three on the Top Heatseakers chart.

After coming out as bisexual in late 2007, Missy told AfterEllen.com that several of her songs are written about relationships with women, including "Secret" from On A Clear Night.

"When we first started our relationship," Missy said, "[my girlfriend] was not comfortable with bringing it out into the open, and I was so head over heels in love with her I kind of wanted to shout it out to the world, so it was just a song about keeping something under the covers and not being comfortable sharing something with the world, keeping it away locked in a little room."

Since coming out and releasing her hit album, Missy has toured with the Indigo Girls, Ben Folds and also headlined her own sold-out international tours. For 2009, she's working on a film version of the musical Bran Nu Dae alongside Oscar-winner Geoffrey Rush.

Tegan and Sara released the single "Call it Off," the third from their 2007 album The Con, and alongside their consistent touring and involvement on several projects outside of the band have made them household names.

Tegan recorded a song for the audio book version of Augusten Burrough's New York Times best seller, A Wolf at the Table.

Together, the twins penned essays for AOL's music site, Spinner.com, kept up their own blogs and released the iTunes exclusive Live Session EP: Tegan and Sara. They also contributed a track to Friends of P – Tribute to The Rentals in March 2008 and said they were working together on writing the songs for their new album, which Tegan told AfterEllen.com would be very different from the rest of their repertoire.

"Sara's definitely writing some really good stuff, definitely writing about a lot of different themes, writing about our childhood and not necessarily about love and relationships, which is cool," Tegan said. "I mean, we don't think too much about it. We never ever sit down and think about it and focus too much on what the plan is. Sara tried to do that with me the other day about stuff that she potentially wants to take one step further than we did on The Con, with a completely different band and completely different producers. So we'll see."

Lesbian musician Kaki King released Dreaming of Revenge in 2008, the follow-up to her successful 2006 CD, Until We Felt Red. She also released a collaboration with indie band The Mountain Goats called Black Pear Tree and contributed a cover of Justin Timberlake's "I Think She Knows" to the compilation, Guilt by Association: Volume 2, which releases in Feb. 2009.

Also in 2009, she'll be working on the scoring for a documentary film on homosexuality and the church called Fish Out of Water.

Bisexual frontwoman of the Dresden Dolls, Amanda Palmer, embarked on a tour in support of her solo debut, Who Killed Amanda Palmer? She announced that her band would be on hiatus, temporarily, but fans were happy enough with her work on her own that they didn't seem to mind.

Who Killed Amanda Palmer? featured collaborations with Ben Folds, St. Vincent and Zoë Keating of Rasputina, receiving very favorable reviews.

The release of the video for "Leeds UNITED" sparked controversy when Amanda wrote on her blog that the record label, Roadrunner Records, wanted to re-shoot scenes in which she bared her belly. Fans were outraged, and protested the label with shots of their own stomachs, calling it "The reBELLYon."

Palmer, who refused to re shoot the video in the first place, wrote about the request: "do you have any idea who i am, what band i've been in, what kind of music i write, who my fans are...who didn't send you the memo that i'm not britney spears? i'm not TRYING to look hungry. i'm trying to look HOT. there's a difference."

In return, the label utilized the protest as a marketing tool and selling-point for the album. It peaked at 77 on the Billboard 200 after being released in September.

Hip-hop trio-turned-duo, Yo Majesty, released their highly-anticipated Domino Records debut, Futuristically Speaking: Never Be Afraid in October. Lesbian Christian MCs Jwl B and Shunda K brought both aspects of their lives to their brand of club-rap on tracks like "Get Down on the Floor" and "Party Hardy."

Their performances at CMJ and on tour were lauded as must-sees by critics, including The New York Times, whose acknowledgment of them being gay was just a sidenote to their incredible talent at making an audience laugh, dance and respect them, all at the same time.

As of late 2008, Jwl B and Shunda K continue to tour together, but also work on separate projects, noting that they have creative differences and might not be together for another album.

New and out on the scene

Another group whose gayness has taken a considerable back seat to their talent is Hercules and Love Affair.

Members Andy Butler and Kim Ann Foxman are both out, and guest contributor Antony Hegarty is transgender. The band's self-titled debut album was hailed by critics as the best dance album of 2008, and the singles "Blind" and "You Belong" reached peak positions on charts in the UK, Italy, Spain, Belgium, Sweden, Norway and Ireland. It peaked at number five on the Top Electronic Albums.

Leisha Hailey's long-awaited return to music came in the form of Uh Huh Her, her duo with musician Camila Grey. The group's debut, Common Reaction, was delayed release for several months, as Leisha told AfterEllen.com, because of the unexpected buzz the band was receiving.

The label, Nettwerk Records, decided to give it a bigger promotional push in the summer of 2008. Common Reaction debuted at No. 9 on the Heatseakers chart.

Uh Huh Her embarked on two separate tours and released two videos for singles "Not a Love Song" and "Explode."

Tegan and Sara tour-mates An Horse released their debut album, Rearrange Beds, and also lent their track, "Postcards" to Mercedes-Benz CLC-Class for use in a commercial this year. Sara Quin served as their A&R rep, and out frontwoman Kate Cooper and bandmate Damon Cox signed with mom & pop music in the U.S.

One of the year's biggest indie phenomenons was Baltimore-based noise band, Ponytail. Out singer Molly Siegel lead the art rock quartet in receiving attention from nationwide music fans who loved her Yoko Ono-esque style of singing/screaming into the microphone.

Ponytail's 2008 album, Ice Cream Spiritual, was only 33 minutes in length but the single, "Celebrate the Body Electric," was 7 minutes long.

Pitchforkmedia.com rated the album 8.4 out of 10, and said of Siegel's spastic vocals: "Listening to her, I think of John Cage's quote about poetry taken to its logical extreme: She has nothing to say and she is saying it. Loudly. And with a sense of joy that's nothing short of infectious."

Other groups with lesbian members that released albums in 2008 were Sick of Sarah, New Bloods, Bound Stems, and The Organ.

Icons keeping up with the times

Several lesbian musicians whose careers have been big for the past decade or two (and in some cases, three) released new records this year, including k.d. lang, Tracy Chapman, Ferron, Patti Larkin, Janis Ian, Melissa Ferrick, Amy Ray and Thalia Zedek.

All were logical next steps in their respective careers, but they also managed to keep up with current trends in popular music (Ferron's CD even featured a remixed track by J.D. Samson and had her album produced by Bitch.)

Ani DiFranco released Red Letter Year. After having a child with her male partner, many in the press debated whether the bisexual singer had lost her lesbian fan base because of her personal life decisions.

Nonetheless, the album peaked at No. 8 on the Top Independent Albums and No. 55 on the Billboard 200.

Other lesbian favorites such as Ellis, Catie Curtis and Sarah Bettens continued to tour and see support from their lesbian/bisexual fan base.

Mos Def/Hercules & Love Affair

Mos Def/Hercules & Love Affair | 10.03

Mos Def & Hercules and Love Affair :: 10.03.08 :: Yerba Buena Center for the Arts :: San Francisco, CA

Hercules and Love Affair
By Neil365/MusicLikeDirt.com
Regardless of who comes out on top on November 4th, The New Party is one of this election season's big winners. The fictional coalition, conjured up as the political theme for the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts' 2008 gala benefit in San Francisco, served up live sets by one of the hottest bands in dance music: Hercules and Love Affair, and one of hip-hop's most enigmatic wordsmiths: Mos Def.

Attendees of the pricey gala, which featured free booze and tasty eats from an array of the Bay Area's top restaurants, were greeted by would-be protesters chanting comical slogans like, "What do we want? Stilettos! When do we want them? Tomorrow!" while cardboard cutouts of the real political parties' leading lights adorned the entrance. The downtown performance space was festooned with all manner of red, white and blue décor - this was the victory party without the election.

Yerba Buena's pick of Hercules and Love Affair was pitch perfect. Sure, the electro-disco outfit has loads of buzz right now and is a sure-fire party-starter, but its motley cast also matched a gala at which hip socialites mixed with towering Uncle Samanthas and a joyous contingent of mostly male cheerleaders and drag queens dressed in combat gear.

Led by clean-cut producer/beat wizard Andy Butler, the New York City-based octet included a troupe whose real-world diversity towered over that of the Real World and its spawn. Butler, clearly a connoisseur of '70s disco, and the new wave and Chicago house scenes that followed it, was the centerpiece, having written all of the songs and most of the lyrics. He chose the band name for the Greek mythological character Hercules' reported proclivity for both male and female lovers.

Behind a bank of keyboards and beat machines, Butler controlled the show from the back of the stage, flanked by a frenetic rhythm section of bass and drums, along with a second keyboardist and a pair of horn players who littered each track with dazzling trombone and trumpet stabs throughout the night. The music didn't vary wildly, but like his fellow DFA Records brethren James Murphy (LCD Soundsystem) and Tim Goldsworthy, Butler showed an ability to infuse the four-to-the-floor rhythms with crafty songwriting. Every track was packed with hooks and choruses, but there were also shining bridges between them and plenty of unexpected bends and twists.

It was the group's pair of singers that really set the stage ablaze, in very different ways. Transsexual sex bomb Nomi Ruiz cut an imposing figure, as would any tall, slinky singer in stilettos and a short, shimmery cocktail dress. As she writhed about the stage, she sang in breathy, dramatic tones, crooning her own verses and filling in for acclaimed singer Antony Hegarty (Antony & The Johnsons), who sang on five of the ten tracks on Hercules' self-titled debut but isn't accompanying the band on tour.

Mos Def
Then there was Kim Ann Foxman, a diminutive lesbian who sported a shelf haircut reminiscent of The Cocteau Twins, one of '80s groups Butler most often cites as an influence on his songwriting. Wearing an oversized t-shirt and vest, she offered a tomboy answer to Nomi's glamour, and her soft, nasally voice provided a fine counterpunch.

The set was a nonstop, 50-minute dance party, although there was more to it than that if you paid attention. The highlights were obvious, as "Blind," possibly the year's best dance track, anchored the set with Nomi subbing for Antony's trademark quavering tone. One of the set's final tracks, "Hercules' Theme," was also its most varied, tossing in some wah-wah funk and chants to Hercules himself. They could have skipped their brief, listless cover of Blue Oyster Cult's "Don't Fear the Reaper," however.

The room was on fire as Hercules and Love Affair departed, but it was up to a solid set from DJ Halo to keep everyone engaged for the next 90-minutes before the headliner took the stage. It's a shame to bury Mos Def's set all the way down here, but the supremely talented lyricist, whose Black on Both Sides (1999) is one of the top hip-hop albums from any solo artist of the past fifteen years, continued on his wayward path of delivering ragged live shows. While the beat never stopped during Hercules' set, the headliner didn't even seem to know which beats he wanted.

At one point, the crowd waited as Mos handed one of his DJs a CDR of a beat from Stones Throw producer Oh No, a fantastic jazzy percussion track but probably something he could have done before a $125-per-ticket event had entered its fourth hour. He enjoyed his performance of "Auditorium," a Madlib-produced, Indian-tinged track from his forthcoming album, The Ecstatic, so much that he decided to perform it twice. These actions don't befit a truly creative, multi-talented artist like Mos Def.

Tracks from Both Sides, particularly "Ms. Fat Booty," sparked up the room as the set wound down, but it was a disappointing close to what had been a remarkable night for The New Party and its devotees.

Hercules and Love Affair's next show is on 10/17 in Chicago, tour dates available here.

London calling - Move over Madonna

London calling - Move over Madonna

One of the few things that I still like about being in this city is the fact that I have at my disposal every sort of musical entertainment possible. On any given night of the week, and sometimes at lunchtime, there is a choice of thousands of venues ranging from small, dingy pubs to enormous stadiums on which the unfamous, the yet-to-be-famous and the super-famous perform.

Be it classical, opera, pop, indie, world, or whatever category you can think of, London is guaranteed to offer the music lover the best time.

I usually make it a point to go see some sort of performance once a month, so over the years I have accumulated quite an impressive list of gigs, concerts and performances with only a few memorable duds which include Air at Brixton Academy, Aimee Mann at Sheperd's Bush Empire (this definitely gets the award for the most boring gig I have ever seen) and Madonna's Confessions tours at Wembley Arena.

Following my disappointment at the Confessions show, I decided to opt out of Madonna's Sweet and Sticky show, which hit town this week. I can't say I was impressed with any of the material for the new album, and had found Confessions a bit too contrived, so I thought I'd use the money on a few other gigs. For the price of one Madonna ticket, I got two for Hercules and the Love Affair, two for CSS (Cansei de Ser Sexy) and - most exciting of all - two for Goldfrapp in November - which I'm very, very excited about.

Last week we went to the first of the lot - held at Koko, a venue that is quite dear to me because it was the first club I ever came to in London way back in 1985. It was then called the Camden Palais, and had two huge papier mâché figures of trapeze artists hanging off the ceiling. For an 18-year-old fresh from an island the size of a postage stamp it was extremely impressive, and so started a love affair with night clubs and partying that - while not as intense as it was in its heyday - is still there in me.

I came across Hercules and the Love Affair when a friend of Significant Other sent us some tracks from their self-titled album which featured Antony Hegarty (of the wonderful Antony and the Johnsons). We had just been to see the band play at Shepherd's Bush Empire and were completely enthralled by the strange melancholy of his voice, and the darkness of his lyrics. Expecting something along those lines, we were surprised to hear his voice accompany a kind of 21st century updated disco beat that sounded at first like early Bronski Beat. SO fell for it immediately, and played it incessantly (he has this habit of latching onto a track or an album and playing it on a loop). It took me some time to catch onto it - which is strange since I grew up listening to disco - but once I did, it became one of my summer favourites.

Hegarty did not accompany the band on tour, so the vocals were left to another two band members: Kim Ann Foxman, and the stunning Nomi Ruiz, a transsexual with legs that go on for miles who I could not get my eyes off all evening.

It was a short gig, played for a mixed crowd which worked very well in the smallish venue. Even a silly tiff with SO a few minutes before the band went on stage, which resulted in us not talking to each other for the rest of the evening (very grown up of us, I know) didn't mar my enjoyment of the evening.

In fact, even if I wanted to talk, by the end of the evening I couldn't because I had lost my voice due to excessive shouting during the gig. (Incidentally, the argument took place after he told me to lower my voice on the phone as it made me sound like "a word which I cannot use on this paper", a comment which I didn't take to very lightly!)

A couple of days later, at a barbecue to celebrate a Maltese friend's birthday, the ones with tickets to see Madonna were trying to tease those without by showing us clips of what we would be missing on YouTube. While I have heard - and seen - that it's a lot better than my last experience, I still have no regrets about not going. If the first of the three gigs I've booked instead is anything to go by, it seems like I've got the better deal. You will be updated.

Koko, London

4 out of 5

It's a long way from the decadent days of Studio 54, but just as Hercules and Love Affair's seamless blend of warehouse-birthed dance and classic disco is getting bodies twitching, Andrew Butler brings the set to a shuddering halt.

  1. Hercules and Love Affair
  2. Koko,
  3. London
  1. Warehouse Project, Manchester (0161-835 3500) on November 29. Then touring.

The New York DJ and intuitive band-leader is no party pooper - just a perfectionist, and he demands his seven-strong band begin again, adding: "We're gonna really turn it out this time."

The outfit have been on the road for four months, and Butler's long-cherished vision of song-orientated yet euphoric dance is now as sleek and glossy as transsexual singer Nomi Ruiz's long dark hair. Personifying late 1970s disco, Ruiz is a charismatic diva in silver sequins. Her rich vocals glide over Butler's love letter to Chicago house, You Belong, and she gamely fills in for an absent Antony Hegarty on Blind, the sheer pop joy of the song overcoming her lack of finesse.

Beside Ruiz, Kim Ann Foxman is a diminutive and edgy presence, representing the cool, electro side of Butler's mix. Her soft, nasal vocals contrast with her tough image, Athene - which she dedicates "to the girls" - sounds like Yazoo flirting with Everybody-era Madonna.

But Butler's eclecticism is almost his undoing. While he is busy wiggling along to the evocative, Arthur Baker-referencing electronica, the trumpet dashes off into chaotic jazz, and a cover of Blue Oyster Cult's Don't Fear the Reaper wears out its welcome. But Saturday Night Fever-style order is restored with an encore of Hercules' Theme; as Ruiz encourages the crowd to chant "happy", it takes a hard heart not to join in.

男人也想戴胸

2009年01月08日蘋果日報

日本網購樂天市場男性內衣褲連續5周最暢銷的居然是男人專用的胸罩,經路透報導後,在全球引起熱烈反應,多國男人表示有興趣,想購買或合作生產。

當然也有如英國人則不解為何男人需要戴胸罩,廠家表示這種胸罩誕生是因客人反映「為何沒有男人專用胸罩?」男人乳房也需要安全感外,還有諸多理由!

三色可挑像護身符
日本有男人愛戴胸罩早已不是秘密,至今他們都到原宿一家女人內衣褲店買女用胸罩,因為該店對男客試用、購買胸罩見怪不怪,但現在居然男性專用胸罩誕生,這種胸罩跟女性胸罩結構差不多,是背鉤式,有黑、白、粉紅三色,但目前只有A杯,大概巨乳男不多吧!
男人戴胸罩首要理由是要享受「遭緊縛的感覺」,這跟SM(性愉虐)現在也是愛被綑綁的M男大增有關,遭緊縛對於享受社會權威的男人而言是很珍貴的感覺吧!
導演山本晉表示日本男人小時候在祭典時也都讓大人用繃帶纏身,那種緊縛滋味或許也有鄉愁成分在。
許多男人表示戴胸罩有安全感,出門能壯膽,許多男人都是在公司有重要簡報等時穿戴胸罩,胸罩宛如護身符,戴了心情安定、放鬆,集中力增強。

還能加襯墊裝厚胸
男性專用胸罩也能放進襯墊撐高,讓胸板厚實而有男人味道,這種手法豈不跟女人戴超強聚攏胸罩而硬擠出乳溝一樣嗎?沒想到男人也開始在乳房動手腳。
女人對男人戴胸罩則認為「那是個人自由,但不希望自己的男人戴!」
男人戴胸罩追求緊縛感,日本女人卻開始穿起丁字褲來,丁字褲賣得比男性胸罩更好,理由是女人想從遭傳統內褲橡皮筋束縛的感覺解放出來擺脫緊縛感,因此想穿很通風的丁字褲,癖好跟當代男人的父祖輩一樣!

襯衫下祕密 男用胸罩成風潮民視 (2009-01-10 19:55)

在日本,穿胸罩絕對不是女人的專利,男人專用的胸罩從去年上市之後,銷售量節節高升,因為很多愛用男性胸罩的消費者說,穿起胸罩會感覺很有安全感,在這個不景氣的年代,人心惶惶,男性胸罩竟然也成了重要的減壓商品。這位25歲的男性業務員,下了班回家脫下衣服,這件粉紅色的胸罩超顯眼,可別以為他心裡有問題,因為最近景氣差,業績不好壓力大,2個月前他接觸到男性胸罩,意外發現具有減壓效果,從此一試成主顧。

其實像他一樣的男性很多,這家販賣男性胸罩的公司,從幾年前就接到許多男性提出製作胸罩的請求,才進而研發這項商品。當然這不只是噱頭,還必須考慮穿著時的舒適感,業者選用的素材比女性胸罩更具彈性,方便活動,去年11月上市,一件3000日圓,差不多1000塊台幣,2個月來賣出上千件,消費者大多是20~40歲之間的男性。

精神科醫師認為,胸膛被束縛的感覺,多少會讓人聯想起遙遠孩提時代,被媽媽輕柔擁抱的記憶,這也是男性胸罩熱賣的原因,不景氣的年代,能找得到屬於自己的減壓方式,大家也就不用大驚小怪了。(民視新聞崔立潔綜合報導)

胸罩不再是女性的專利,日本市面上最近出現一款男性專用的胸罩,而且大受歡迎,許多穿過胸罩的日本男人表示,胸罩感覺就像「護身符」一樣,可以治療心靈、紓解壓力。

上班累了一天回到家,一位25歲的男子準備更衣,脫下上衣,裡頭穿的竟然是粉紅色的胸罩!可別以為他是變態,因為他穿的正是男性專用的胸罩,據說穿了能紓解壓力,這位仁兄說,「像是被緊緊抱住,有種很沉穩的感覺,心臟像是被罩住一樣,全身也跟著暖和起來。」

男性胸罩的出現,顛覆了大眾的傳統印象,不過令人更驚訝的是這樣產品,並不是廠商主動開發,而是接獲許多20至40歲上班族男性的要求,內衣公司負責人表示,「客人寫信來說,穿了胸罩有治療心靈的感覺,因此紓解壓力的人也不少。」

精神科專家指出,男性胸罩的流行其實一點也不病態,在生活緊迫的現代社會,反倒發揮了護身符的作用。一位精神科醫師指出,「在公司,因為上司和下屬的關係,想說的話不能說。」

穿上胸罩,讓積蓄的壓力慢慢紓解,像一層保護層一樣。男生穿的胸罩當然和女生不同,質料柔軟,背帶部分也特別寬鬆,即便胸前被包裹起來,還是很舒服。

這款男性胸罩有黑、白、粉紅3種顏色,一件售價3千圓日幣,約合新台幣1100元,在去年11月推出之後,短短2個月就賣出將近2千件,成為網拍熱賣商品,不僅讓業者荷包賺滿滿,也意外掀起討論話題。(新聞來源:東森新聞記者蕭瑋玲)
