Cosabella, makers of cult favorite soft bras and thongs, just launched a new collection called Glow. Like the name implies, these bra sets glow-in-the-dark. They range from $47.50 for a thong up to $101 for a bra, and come in "Barbados," neon orange, and white as well as underwire and soft styles. If you're hemming and hawing over whether to pull the trigger on ordering a set, here's an explainer on when and if you can wear it: Glow-in-the-dark bras are appropriate in these places:
· Rave festivals.
· OKCupid dates on which you want to convey "I'm adventurous!"
Glow-in-the-dark-bras are not appropriate in these places:
· Hiding from the cops after your under-aged party got busted right in the middle of strip poker.
· Your kid's elementary school haunted house when you're dressed as the ghost.
· Washington, DC. Boston. You know: Places where you have to be upstanding and whatnot.
· OkCupid dates on which you want to convey, "I know my profile said 'I'm adventurous!' but that mostly just applies to trying new burrito combos at Chipotle."
