Lingerie Dement Trashes Hooks And Clasps In Favor Of Magnets

A longstanding problem for women and some men whose grasp is less than prime are those hard to manage hooks and clasps used to, hmm, how do you best put this? Used to keep lingerie and undergarments in place.

Dealing with clasps and hooks on ladies intimate apparel can end up really holding things up or becoming an effort in futility.

Lingerie Dement of France has just moved adaptive apparel ahead a giant step by replacing those uncooperative and archaic connectors with magnets.

Now don’t flatter yourself by thinking that this was done for any high moral purpose like helping you out (of other than your money), or that it was an attempt at universal design. That do-gooder stuff lives only in fairy tales and nursery schools. But you never know, it may be their way of elevating and supporting the inclusion cause.

Here is a spin from CoolThings.com that is as good a reason for the switch as any:

“Think women’s underwear takes too long to remove? We concur. So does every bumbling lothario who still struggles to unclasp their ladies’ bras with one hand. And, apparently, so do the good folks at Lingerie Dement, who actually went ahead and did something about it.”

Regardless of motivation, it does appear to be a good idea and may just prove to be welcomed replacement for hooks and clasps, velcro, zippers, and many of the old standard solutions. It’s also not a very difficult do-it-yourself conversion.

Here is how to go about it. Lay your not so agile hands on some small magnets (maybe some bigger ones if you are full figured). Be sure to take the intimate garment off before proceeding- Remove the clasps and hooks, and have a friend or relative who is handy with a sewing needle stitch some small receiver pockets for the magnets onto your lingerie or intimate apparel. I’m not sure how well your washing machine will take to magnets flying around inside of it so make the magnets removable or go at it by hand. Voila! You’re done.

OK, you can put it back on at this point. Let me know how it worked out. I’ve got the wrong anatomy for this stuff so you’re on your own.

Anyone know if there is any real difference between lingerie, undergarments, and intimate apparel? Or is it all Madison Avenue? I’d ask my wife but she would just tell me “it’s none of your business”.
