Connected Bra Only Unhooks When The Wearer Is In Love

Concept design could save you from some unsavory gentlemen.

The definition of true love differs from one person to the next, but according to the creators of the “True Love Tester,” it’s a secretion of catecholamine, a hormone made by the adrenal glands. It might not sound all that romantic, but it is the one condition that’s required by the creator of a new line of lingerie in order to remove the items.

Designed by Japan’s Ravijour, the True Love Tester is a concept bra that protects the wearer from their own desires, and overzealous males. It connects to a smartphone app via Bluetooth, and can only be unhooked when sensors built into the bra detect “true love.”


One interesting design concept is that when the app calculates a change that correlates with a true love, the bra will unhook itself automatically from the front. This could create more problems than it solves, but whether or not the bra will ever become a reality is yet to be seen.

In the meantime you can see who the bra will protect you from in the video below.
