Well, it appears that I'm not the only one to desire such an invention. A group of scientists led by Professor Gordon Wallace and Professor Julie Steele over at the University of Wollongong in Australia have just come up with the first prototype of something they call the Bionic Bra. They've apparently been working on this for the past 15 years, but technology is only now catching up to their plans. Made out of intelligent components like actuators and sensors, the bra is able to automatically tighten or loosen depending on breast movement. So if you're sweating it out at the gym, the bra will constrict, but if you're just sitting in the car, the fibers will relax.
At the moment, the Bionic Bra looks more like a bulletproof vest than anything fashion-forward and it's also not machine washable. But Professor Steele holds out hope. "Although we have made substantial progress, we still have a way to go before the Bionic Bra can be taken from the bench top to the washing machine. However, when finished, the Bionic Bra will transform bra design," she said in a statement. We're already imagining a future where we can seamlessly transition from work to workout with less hassle, and perhaps someday -- someday! -- we can find a bra that actually fits. We can dream.
