Bra doubles as gas mask wins Ig Nobel Prize, on sale NOW!


The "emergency bra" can be a regular bra, strapless bra, nursing bra, OR TWO GAS MASKS.  Dr Elena Bodnar invented this two cup genius as a result of the Chernobyl disaster.  She says, 

""if people had had cheap, readily available gas masks in the first hours after the disaster ... they may have avoided breathing in Iodine-131, which causes radiation." She also envisions it being useful in terrorist attacks."

TOUCHE Dr. Elena Bodnar, TOUCHE.  And, wait for it...

 Bra gas mask

I think it's genius, BUT, I have a couple reservations.  My issue is that it is available in sizes 32B-40C, which completely ignores petite women and starving populations.  So, there is a discriminatory size issue. Also, if there is going to be an emergency bra that turns into a gas mask, doesn't there need to be emergency panties that turn into bras?  I'm serial about it, when shit gets apocalyptic, ALL PROBLEMS are going to be EXTREMELY compounded by massive populations of women without proper foundation garments.    Seriously, take a second to imagine what your day would look like if yourself and every other woman you came into contact with wasn't wearing a bra...............................AND it rained.

  1. I think its a great idea and im sorry but if things get that bad I think the last things on ohr minds are going to be whether the women are all wearing bras or not but I do agree that they should be offered in more sizes us big busted women have a hard time finding quality bras too and yes smaller sizes would be a plus! But over all fantastic idea!
