THIS IS SO WRONG

The yarmulke-bra.

Or as I like to call it, "the end of the world as we know it."

I guess we'll see if the company starts making them in the different "flavors" that help us identify "what sort of Jew" the wearer is.  A large serugah (crocheted) means sympathetic with the settlers, a smaller serugah means contemporary modern Orthodox, black velvet is super-religious, pink satin means the bra was picked up at a Reform bar mitzvah...the political possibilities are endless...

Think Madonna has one? Or twelve? Hers are probably bustiers, designed by Jean Paul Gauthier. Come to think of it, this could be a good way for you, gentle readers, to tell us apart. Madonna/Esther will be the one wearing the yarmulke bra. Regular My-Urban-Kvetching Esther will not. I assure you. Ever.

"Thanks" (if that's the right word) to Jewschool for this story.

Hmm...I think there's really not much more to say than, as you said, "This is so wrong."

I think what bothers me the most is that most of these are sold out. If you want the basketball kippah bra, then you are in luck.

I just showed my husband this site. "This is so wrong", he said, "you are supposed to kiss it when it hits the floor, how can it hold breasts"?
