American Apparel is notorious for making clothing that doesn’t really fit the majority of women over the age of 18. They tend to design for the narrow of hips and the relatively flat of chest – which is why their bras are perfect for male wearers on the slimmer side. I call them bras and indeed, they call them bras, but they’re not really bras in the traditional sense of the word in that they don’t so much offer support as a general covering of lace.
The three bras above, in order from left to right:
American Apparel Stretch Lace Diamond Grid Bra
American Apparel Nylon Spandex Micro-Mesh Triangle Cross-Back Bra
American Apparel Stretch Floral Lace Ruched Front Tube Bra
And one more for luck…
American Apparel Stretch Floral Lace Bra
These are definitely vintage and retro in their styling, but women in the 1950’s knew the worth of a good bullet bra for accentuating one’s bosom. It’s pretty difficult to find new bras made in the bullet bra style these days because nowadays the focus is on a natural looking rounded bosom, but E Bay still has some bullet bra specimens which can round out your otherwise modern lingerie collection.
When most bra wearing humans think about brassieres, they think about support, comfort, picking one that doesn’t dig into their shoulders painfully, ones they won’t accidentally fall out of, ones that flatter the figure. But there are some bra wearing humans for whom the mundane applications of brassiere wearing are irrelevant. There are some for whom a bra is not just an item of clothing, but a fashion accessory that says, Yes! I Dare!

Once there was a man who always spoke in parables. We nailed him to a tree and then spent the next two thousand years regretting our harsh actions, so I make it a point to only occasionally speak in parables. This is the parable of the beige brassiere, feel free to form a cult like following around it.
Sometimes lingerie doesn’t simply serve as a mere undergarment, it becomes the base for full blown battle attire. You know what I mean, skirts, heels, stockings, war paint – er, ‘make up’, the whole nine yards. In these instances, red lingerie is the only lingerie with the necessary vibrancy and spectrum to properly gird your intentions for what must surely lie ahead.

Are you a man of danger? Do you often fight enemy spies? Have you been known to take down an international crime ring using only your wits and a paper clip? Then indubitably, you must be made aware of the bullet bra, a brassiere capable of storing several rounds in its voluminous and pointy / rounded interior.
I know that sometimes some of you think I’ve lost my ever loving mind when I’m doing these lingerie reviews. I know that, and I’m okay with that. You know why? Because nothing I write, and I’m even including my musings on space lingerie in this, could possibly be anywhere near as weird as what actual lingerie manufacturers are doing for real. Don’t believe me? Think that I must be exaggerating at best and hallucinating at worst? Put your lithium prescriptions away!
Thanks to reader Cantsay for pointing out this lovely line of what I’m pretty much going to call lace bandeau bras for men from Hanky Panky. Did Hanky Panky ostensibly say they were for men? No, of course not, however I am willing to bet that the average male would be far more comfortable in one of these lovely stretchy lace contraptions than the average female.
When women wanted to be empowered, they burned their bras. When men wanted to be empowered, some of them put bras on. Thus the bra has transcended status as mere clothing and become something of a magical totem garment. No wonder men are so attracted to bras. Even if they don’t want to wear them, men are often fascinated by brassieres.
These are some bras, which when worn, may very well empower the wearer with femininity. Alternatively, they may just feel really good and look most excellent.

I’m a big fan of microfiber for many reasons, its smooth, it has a sheen to it, it is comfortable, and it is the way of the future. When all the cotton dies out due to global warming, those of us who have already adapted to polymer clothing will have an advantage over those who keep whining about the fact you can’t drink the water anymore.
