Lingerie Dement underthings use magnets for quick and easy removal.You know those steamy sexy scenes in movies where the guy rips the woman's lingerie off? Sure, it looks hot, but we can't help but think, NO! Don't ruin the nice undies! Because let's face it, that steamy affair lingerie often comes with a higher price tag. And deserves to be worn more than once! Parisian company, Lingerie Dement, has solved this dilemma by creating magnetic closure bras, underwear and bustiers for occasions when you want those pretty underthings yanked off in a hurry without the damage.
We're not sure magnetic lingerie is necessary, though it is kind of a cool concept (and a plus for guys who are still completely inept when it comes to bra removal). But with magnetic undergarments come a whole slew of other problematic and potentially awkward scenarios. Yes. Think about all the items that may stick to your bra magnets. Or items your magnetic panties may stick to.
Here's a quick list of items you'd need to avoid at all costs should you choose to wear Lingerie Dement garments:
- The fridge. You reach in for a drink and--whoops!--your bra is now unhooked.
Chalkboards. A parent-teacher conference makes an interesting turn as your blouse suddenly clings to the board or your bra snaps open.
- Shoplifting alarms. "Can you please show us your purchase, Miss?" "Actually, you see, I have a magnet in my underwear..."
- Silverware. Frontal magnetic bra closures are a strange explanation for why there's now a fork stuck to your shirt.
- Metal folding chairs. Imagine wearing a skirt to a meeting at work. You stand up and your panties have not only come unfastened, they're now stuck to the seat! Most embarrassing moment ever.
- Office supplies. Hello random paper clips and staples--where did you come from?
- A pacemaker. This one is no joke. Magnets can actually reset these internal devices and screw up the mechanisms.
- Airport security scanners. Unless you want to miss your flight and risk a potential cavity search, we'd suggest regular undies to get past security.
- Body piercings. We'd imagine this could be quite painful.
- A compass. If you wear your magnetic undergarments every day, you may forget about their polarizing force when it comes time for a hike... and you may wind up walking in circles for hours.
Is magnetized lingerie really an asset, or would it be creating more problems? We're too scared to actually wear it out in public to decide for ourselves. [Cool Hunting]
