Get the Support You Need With a Bionic Bra Beth Snyder March 3, 2015 News If you’re a woman, you’ll get it. If you’re a man who knows a woman, you might get it. The problem is the incredibly wide variety of bras available for an array of purposes. And you can spend an amazing amount of money on one, only to find out after a wearing or two that it just doesn’t fit right. Or gets stretched out. Or provides more or less support than you wish it would. It can really be quite a problem, because wearing a bra that doesn’t fit right can ruin your entire day with pain. Professors at the University of Wollongong in Australia have developed a new bra that will adjust to provide varying levels of support depending on what you need when you need it. It will adjust automatically based on the wearer’s movements, which makes it a bra you can wear pretty much regardless of the situation (obviously your choice of top will determine if it will work, but we’re just talking about its supportive properties here). How is it possible that the Bionic Bra self-adjusts? The professors have developed something they’re calling “smart yarn”, which is attached to “new sensing technologies and actuators” which will feel the movement of your breasts. The smart yarn will then tighten or loosen depending on which is needed, thus always providing the correct level of support in fairly short order. Not only will this be incredibly handy for those who typically would wear a sports bra for jogging or other exercise, but it will help all of us in our daily lives when we may not be going out for a jog but do have to run periodically (women with small children leap to mind). The more movement the Bionic Bra senses, the tighter the smart yarn becomes, and then when you stop it loosens again. They do say they are still several years away from the Bionic Bra hitting the market, but anyone who regularly wears a bra will be happy to hear that is the plan. Of course there is no word on how much this device will cost, but if you experience pain from bras that are either too loose or too tight, there really isn’t too high a cost to fix it. Especially considering how much a good quality bra costs already. Source: Gajitz Share This With The World!
