Yes you heard that right. Bra Bunny. A bunny for your bra (well only if your a woman, obviously. Or if you are a man who likes to cross dress, which is fine of course, this is 2012, after all)
This is what I am talking about: Bra Bunny
Just why? Why would you want this poking out of your bra? Are you meant to wear it all day? At work? On the school run? Won’t it get flattened by your seat belt?
If worn on a night out what is it going to say to people? “Stare at my boobs, I have a random object shoved in my norks”. Yeah because us women love having our boobs stared and pointed at by random strangers.
And I am telling you now, there is nothing going in my bra but my boobs. I can’t get a sheet of paper in there when my boobs are in there, let alone some furry rabbit.
Okay after a night in the Chinese using chop sticks I might find some stray grains of rice down my bra but I have never managed to get a whole rabbit in there, even if it is a small cuddly one with pointy up ears.
Point up ears I might hasten to add that look very much like the Playboy logo. Playboy, you know that massive merchandising machine that is all about the sexualisation of women and not promoting breast health.
Don’t get me wrong, I am all for raising money for Breast Cancer Awareness, all for it. Having had my own scares I know all too well how important awareness and prompt action to anything suspicious is. But only £1 from the £7.99 cost of this goes to the charity. Just £1. Wouldn’t that be better put in a fund raising bucket? Or buying a discrete badge for £2 that I can put on my coat?
Does this really raise awareness of breast cancer? Does it? Seriously? A pink bunny poking out of a bra is going to raise awareness of breast cancer? What on earth makes somebody think I am going to want to try and raise awareness of the importance of checking for lumps or helping fund research with a pink bunny shoved in my bra?
Quite frankly I find this merchandising offensive. If women have had breast cancer or mastectomies the last thing they want is something shoved in their bra inviting people to stare at them. The last thing. They want to feel feminine again not invite random people to point and say “what the hell has that woman got sticking out of her bra”.
Added to which why is it sickly pink? I am 43 not 6.
No. I am sorry Bra Bunny but you can just hop off.
