Forget car keys, my wife could keep the whole car in there!!

This is cute; would've tried it if I'd seen it a year ago. But I found out last fall that carrying your phone in your bra; that close to your breasts can cause tumors & cancer. Please don't try this if you haven't already.

It deppends on your build, if you have big boobs and a bra with some padding you can put a ton of stuff in there without it being to visible, if you have a smaller build you might want to stick to an ID, credit card and condoms (aka small stuff no phones or cigarettes)

kgirl1992 (author)2011-02-10

As one of the previous commenter said, please dont use this for cash. Really think of me the poor cashier watching you pull boob sweated money out of your bra and knowing that if I don't take it I will lose my job.

But I think this is a wonderful idea for your phone, ID and credit card for a night on the town, just know that if you have a big phone or a big wad of cash people will be able to see it.

when i was in las vegas i won over 4000 dollars. for safe keeping i kept it inside my bra cup for the week. the group of people i was with had all kinds of fun with me all week making jokes at my expense about my lopsided breasts. thats o.k. i was the one with the cash and it all went home with me. in my bra.

carpfluff (author)2010-05-10

some bras have the removable padding in them and already have "pouches."

linda617 (author)2010-04-08

i will say if i go out with a few items in my bra they do show through if i wear a tight fitting jersey in the summer.  sometimes i cant avoid it  and i will get a square look on one of my boobs.

I dated a girl that kept her money and such in her bra I am now starting to wonder if she had modified he bra like this or just relied on friction to keep her stuff in place...

linda617 (author)SWV17872010-04-08

any bra is capable of carrying things in it from money to a walett to a cell phone.  just put it down there. it will usually make its way to the bottom and stay there all day till its needed. i do it all the time.i dont need any special bra. i do the same in my bikini at the beach.

Well, I know how to solve the bumpy issue! Mostly.
Have the pockets on the inside side of your boobs.
That way the object basically rests within the clevage. :D

bergiemoore (author)2009-05-28

Yeah. I was cashier for a summer. I absolutely hated ppl who handed me humid wet money from their bras. It made me want to refuse them service. Seriously, do some women think ppl want to touch their booby sweat soaked items? Don't do this. This is not a good idea. go make a screen print with your free time or build a little vibrating robot to annoy your cat- anything!

youknowwhoiam (author)2009-05-25

pretty odd, but unnecessary. I know someone who just tuck stuff in her bra. And she probably doesn't wear a special bra.

Freshence (author)2009-05-24

C'mon. You can do better. Seriously.

Shinta786 (author)2009-05-08

I think it only is good for small and flat stuff. If you start using bigger things like a packet of cigarettes, that "box" shape will pop out in front. And if it is something like keys and stuff like that.....people will think you gained a size or 2. Keep it to paper money and hankerchiefs...

Wouldn't you be like... bumpy?

Tanamoril (author)KedaDibandion2009-05-01

seconded - how does this not look like you just stuffed some things into your bra? sometimes out of desperation I stick things in my bra, but it pretty much always looks like I am deformed


gluac (author)2009-04-11

I don't think having a cellphone so close to your breast is a good idea... seriously.

anarchrisis (author)gluac2009-04-21

Condoms by a heat source (read: your body) yields babies!!! If you have to, get polyurethane condoms, which tolerate heat a little better (and feel a lot better).

Halopwner85 (author)2009-04-05

lmao me and my friend were going to make and sell these to girls at school because they put everything from phones to papers down there

jianqiang (author)2009-03-14

I like it, I'm not a girl obvious, but when you stick stuff in your bra, doesn't it stay put pretty well to begin with?

acesnanna (author)jianqiang2009-03-30

It depends upon the size of your ahhhhh bra cup??? Interesting idea...way to much fun..... Thanks

Holly E. (author)2009-03-28

This would rock on Halloween, when the costume doesn't allow for pockets and bags, perfect for an ID debit card and some cash. Might have to buy a cheap wally world bra though, don't feel like hacking up more expensive bras.

DarkKnightJared (author)2009-03-13

...This is just too clever for words. I now know what to do for my Mom's upcoming birthday. :D

that sounds like an awkward moment waiting to happen

HOMEPIE64 (author)9995922009-03-17

ive always wondered 999592 are you a surfer a bro or a skater??

999592 (author)HOMEPIE642009-03-23

hmmmmmmm... surfer. definitely

ATL94 (author)HOMEPIE642009-03-20

I know right!!

cringe (author)2009-03-21

Yes, it does stay pretty well put, as long as the shape of the cup is big enough.

And if you are wearing a tight tee shirt and putting lumpy things in there, you're right-- it would probably show! But some folded money (bills), or a drivers license-- pretty easy. I put my cell phone in there all the time. One friend just caught on recently so now I'm getting razzed for it occasionally-- believe me, I'm gonna show them all this to prove I'm *not* the only one!

If you tuck the item(s) in over on the side-- like, kinda under the armpit?-- it's much less likely that it'll be visible through clothing-- even a fairly close-fitting shirt.

GREAT idea!

Nice one. Being a dude, I don't wear a bra, but now I have a reason. :)

fwjs28 (author)2009-03-13

hrmm...sounds pretty cool, just one thing, wouldn't it kinda show trhough?

ATL94 (author)fwjs282009-03-20

That is so true...LOL... wow!
