Leave it to the Japanese to make a better mouse trap, or in this case “Louse-trap” – a bra that can only be removed by a woman’s true love.. From a Victoria’s Secret-like company comes The “True Love Tester” bra which purportedly will only open if..
.. well, read for yourself:

Well, the Japanese have done it again. Apparently this tech-laden bra made by the lingerie company Ravijour will only unhook for “true love.”
The “True Love Tester” bra can’t be masterfully unhooked by some skeevy player who hit on the wearer at a club. No, this bra only comes undone when sensors embedded inside it that are connected wirelessly to a smartphone app detect a particular heart rate.
According to the Victoria’s Secret-like company that made the bra, Ravijour, a particular heart rate over time indicates “love.” And what do you know, they even have a graph comparing the effects of jogging, shopping, eating spicy food and watching a horror movie with “flirting” and “surprise gift” on a lady’s heart. What better way to acknowledge being “in love” than having your glittery bra fly open?
BuzzFeed’s Rachel Zarrell put the whole thing into a series of awesome GIFs to illustrate the ridiculousness of it all. Ravijour’s slogan is “We do anything for women.” Apparently they do anything to free the girls, too.
Might not want to wear this thing around in public, though. The dude-designed bra cups pop open pretty dramatically.
I’m not looking forward to the men’s “boxers or briefs” version of this – and I must also admit I’m secretly hoping that my wife keeps things low-tech.. It does occur to me that this just may take “wardrobe malfunctions” to a whole new level and could turn dating into quite a shocking experience for the contemporary young suitor..
… But I’m sure it won’t be long before some nerd invents a way to hack into it..
Thanks and goodnight..
