After two and a half years here at lululemon athletica, my favourite feature found in our garments is removable cups - those pear-shaped inserts that are part of the built in bra of a tank top or just a sports bra itself. Hidden in between our nylon Lycra luon and powermesh, these cups are perfect for supporting the well-endowed, and also come in handy for adding some extra cleave for us ladies that want it.
For many of us, we keep the cups in. For others, we can’t wait to take them out! But then what do you do? In the spirit of fun and sustainability, what other creative ways can we use these cups? Here are a few suggestions from my colleagues and I to lighten up your midday coffee break:
1. Candy dishes.
2. Extra “oomph” in the gluteus maximus.
3. Earmuffs: for those of us that live where it’s really chilly!
4. Princess Leia costume at ComiCon.
5. Lend it to your male counterparts to protect those family jewels (be SURE to double up on those)
What do you use your removable bra cups for?
