Men embrace bras; women abandon them

What is happening to this world? Did somebody just turn it upside down? Men are now embracing bras, yet women are abandoning them.

Yes, you read that right, now there are bras for men. The male bra has taken Japan by storm. While women can chose between sizes and cups, the stronger gender is pleased with only cup A, but the bras come in various chest sizes ranging from 32ins to a busty 38ins. Men who wear the male bra - which come in a variety of colours including black, white and... pink - have become known as “Bra men”. Mostly businessmen between 30 and 40 purchase male bras in order to shed off stress.

And the ladies? They don't seem to need their bras anymore. Earlier this week, Britney Spears was spotted with her two sons visiting the Eiffel Tower in Paris. What was not spotted though, is her bra. Now, she has never been a fan of bras anyway. Despite reports that she has gone back to junk-food, Britney appeared healthy and glowing.

What about you? What's your preference? Do you need a bra or would you rather go bra-less? And then of course: are you male or female? What do you think of these new trends?

Although I sometimes think men should walk in 'our shoes', the men-wearing-bras-thing is a trend I hope never catches on, quite frankly.

Male bra? Isn't that an oxymoron?

Lol..not just upside down..the world is upside down falling at alarming rate. But looking on the positive side, as always the human race like to experiment with new things. You see for women bra is kawa thing and you never appreciate light until it is not there. For men this a new thing..may be as a curiosity or may be just a fad kind of...

Our Kid, not necessarily.

Ever gone swimming at the Village Market? Some men look like they NEED a bra. *barf*

let it be known that a man who wears anything remotely associated with women is really sick and he should go see a shrink. Ati to shed stress? that is the stupidest[sic] thing i had ever heard. just a bunch of chinese transvestites trying to justify their abnormality and keep themselves from being admitted into asylums. sick!!

He he interesting comments.

@kenyantykoon do you have anything against crossdressers? I mean they are weird but..

As for me, I go bra-less whenever I can.

I know of some bra-like ngothas that suspend makendes for the wearer to appear 'meaty' which to me is ok. Bras on a male chest is something else and I will have to side with Kenyantykoon. Totally against it.

Cross dressers maybe? What's next? Girdles and corsets?

Kirima said...

I know some men have so called 'Moobies'on man boobs but I can assure you that Man bras will (and should never!!!) catch on in this country.
Savvy! ahem!

pinkm said...

Ati @Bomseh bras that do what again?

If getting a man to wear a bra saves my goobs (since man boobs are moobs) from sagging, let them wear the things in proxy!

I hate bras I hate bras!

I'm with @Savvy on going bra less unless where the weather / outfit demands.

Britney's boy is such a cutie.

Just because one or two men want to wear bras does not mean all men want to. Sometimes the media blows trivialities way out of proportion.

How in hell does a man bra shed off stress? And, I've also seen a few men with cup size D at Splash but in china men walk about with shirts hooked up over their boobs to 'cool down ...Ooogghhhhhh hard to stop from vomiting, that's when put on shades

Digzer said...

Yikes!!!

Is this a new equality thing? Going a bit far no?

Stress releif did I hear you say? How?!?!

If a guy wants to wear a bra to release stress- well, s'long as he is not MY man - to each his own, I say.
