I know this is silly and out of character for me but I was talking to a friend the other day and we where talking about bras. I said I needed to buy new bras. She said "Oh you need to buy new Flopper Stoppers" I started laughing I had never head bras called by that name. It got me to thinking we have lots of names for what ladies call bras. A few I can think of are Over shoulder bolder holders Braziers Double-barreled slingshots, Booby holders. Can you guys come up with some other and keep it clean please.

A torture device. They cut in, cause indentions, you have metal rammed into your armpit. I hate it, but it is a necessary evil.

You are right. There is an exercise that some people do when they have to reset the little pepples in their ears. Some dizzy spells are caused by these stone being out of line. The exercises are silly. You sit on the side of the bed and throw your self on your right side while looking left and then you throw yourself to the left side while looking right. You do this 10 times on each side and you do this very fast. These exercies are silly but if that is what is causing your dizziness they work. Now I was doing my exercises and I felt a poking in my chest. I then sat up and was bleeding some not much. I pulled my shirt up and found out that I broke the metal stay in my bra doing exercises. It was so funny because I was doing the exercies in Mexico while on vacation. My friends and I laughed and laughed. I had to go and find a bra to replace the one I broke.

Lol, mnksmommy, totally avoidable - bras only really hurt if u are wearing the wrong size for u... apparently 75% of women wear a size that does not fit their body properly and give them max support and comfort! Get a lady to measure u and go and spend a bit of money on a few good bras, rather than some of the rubbish they sell someplaces. I'm a 32E and I used to wear a 34C LOL because I could never find bras for large busted women with a petite frame, now they never hurt me. :)

My hubby always refered to bras as boobie holders. But after Nick was born, and nursing bras became the norm, he started to refer to them as Glad Wear cuz you "open the lid and got lunch"

That's too funny! I've never heard that one before. I don't call it anything other than a bra and never thought to call it anything else. I'll have to come up with something, lol.

I laughed and laughed when my friend called it a flopper stopper. If you think about it that is what a jogging bra does.

since the purpose of bras is to hold it firmly in place without getting too much of the shakes while walking running ,jumping or sagging for that matter,it basically acts as a prop so i would call it a PROP since boobs are also called knockers you could also call it knocker covers.

Ididn't know there was a other word that people would use to call a bra lol I think it's simply funny. Even here in french I don't remember hearing someone calling it by another name then it,s real name. But maybe guys have tons of other words to call it lol
