A Hip Bra??

Had to post this for a laugh. This goes in my WTF file.

A bra for your butt! What is the world coming too? How uncomfortable does it look? The ad claims ‘it lifts your hip for a real feel‘. Hmmm… for a real feel of what? … chaffing??? And is it just me or does the bottom in the picture look like someone is just sticking it out?

Here is an idea – if you want to make your backside more prominent, wear horizontal stripes, heavy textures, layers of belts, tuck scarves and or skirts bunched into the sides or back (see pic below). You could also try exercise – lots of butt crunches and squats and the like. Regular use of Suhaila Salimpour’s pilates DVD would surely make a difference to posterior perkiness. Personally, I think we should vive la différence. A rounded bottom can be sexy but so too can a slimmer profile. Who are we trying to impress? Men like woman in all shapes and sizes despite what the media implies.

Old school tribal belts like this one have plenty of bulk for the hips and the simple straight profile of the base adds width and definition. Apply the same principles for a Modern Egyptian type look i.e. lots of beads and contrasting horizontals.

Well each to their own … If you are really keen on owning one, the top picture was from ebay and believe it or not, there is more than one seller with this type of item for sale (it came up for a search on hip belts). They are around $3 including postage. If you want to wear it for dance you may need to add some sequins to the top of it if it shows past the top of your skirt 😉

What are your thoughts? Would you wear one?
