You Like, You Buy Vol 43

While Hong Kong is not exactly a lingerie capital, you'd still be hard pressed to find a dull brassiere in this fair city. The amazing kaleidoscope of bra colours and patterns for sale is only surpassed by the amazing kaleidoscope of stupid things people manage to wear on top of their undergarments.

It has also become perfectly acceptable to display your bra straps in public. This is because all standards of decency went out the window once crotch-riding jeans and cameltoe tracksuits came into vogue. Investing in a quality set of interchangeable straps allows you to switch them according to your various moods and peccadilloes. If you're like most women I know and have a tendency to misplace your bra in a crowded nightclub, then be sure to bulk order your straps from somewhere like master haberdashers Garland (

Romantic series
For when the first stirrings of young love turn to thoughts of getting past first base

Party hard series
These days it takes more than just a pushup bra and a tissue box to get noticed

Party even harder series
Does it matter whether your name is on the list or not? The sheer naivete emanating from these straps is guaranteed to get you past the toughest bouncers and door b*tches.

Deluxe formal series
For the formal events like weddings, bar mitzvahs, courtroom appearances, these lend an air of sophistication and gravitas. GL-963 is also suitably tragic for solemn occasions.

Practical series
Sweet and simple designs for everyday wear. In particular, GL365 unfolds into a feminine hygiene product (with wings) at a moment's notice.

Didn't some writer a while back call the brassiere "the most superfluous garment in China" or summat? That considered, one may as well put the garment to some decorative use.

I think the clear ones are cute but the others are a bit OTT

Duh, my reading comprehension is not what it once was. Sorry 'bout that. ;)

(I was just so taken with the maxi pad strap that I commented before I read your commentary to that effect.)

They all look either itchy or sweaty to me. And ten bucks says the chain-link ones would leave big green stripes on your shoulders...
