jiggly virtual b00b support
February 28, 2006 5:58 AM   Subscribe

The Shock Absorber Bounce-o-Meter is *definitely* NSFW, but sure is a lot of fun. Choose your cup size, then your level of activity, and you will be presented with naked breasts, breasts in a normal bra and breasts in the Shock Absorber bra side by side...all the while doing some exercise to get things jiggling.

Sadly, it's not that useful for actually finding a bra, as the tool recommended a bra that didn't come in the size I had previously chosen.

Too bad, as I really need a new sports bra.

Falling panties, bouncing boobs, I just don't know how Metafilter could get any better.

jacquilynne you checked the main section that has the cup/support chart?

The Sports Bra > Support Level links on the top navbar brings you there.

While this may be too personal, do you need a special size bra? Like something in between two sizes?
I must say tho, I do quite hate flash driven sites as they make direct linking quite difficult :(

For those of you at work, especially the ones that deal in 3D modeling of any kind, the wireframe option might let you get away with it..

If only they where *real* boobs.

The development teams costs for the project would of made an interesting read...

Lame lame lame. They aren't even real boobies. (Not a lame post, but a lame website — I was hoping for so much more.)

...oh yeah, the whole point of this site is to show how letting your breasts jiggle wildly during exercise is bad for you and that their product reduces said gyrations.

...the point of this post was to let all the female MeFites see some new sports bra technology.

...as per the men, well, its b00bies ;¬)

You picked the biggest size first, right?

Don't lie.

I started with a respectable b cup and saved the FF for a closer.

What are you talking about? This is a huge advance in virtual boob technology! Real boobs would have been lamer (although more interesting) Plus, with like 10 different sizes, 4 activity levels and 3 bras doing real boobs would have required 140 combinations. (Well, I guess that's not that much, but whatever)

I'm just stunned that this kind of thing hasn't been used for porn first (well, maybe it has, I dunno).

delmoi: Yes, the biggest first.
and it HAS been used for porn... mostly weird creepy porn like aliens and robots... nope, never seen it. really! ok, maybe once, but boy it's disturbing...

plus, it's not nearly as advanced as this technology.

and my first response: Metafilter! How I love you...

So I tried my size and level of activity first, and was a little surprised at how much movement was possible even in their shock absorber bra. I think I'm just going to start crawling everywhere lest I injure myself.

But when, of course, I went to the largest size and maximum activity, the shortcomings of their modelling became sadly apparent. Only the nipples moved. There was no soft modelling and deformation of the mass of the breasts at all. They just look like the most hardened breast implants ever with remote controlled hyperactive nipples. This may be amusing, but it's not instructive.

much like mardi gras, I feed it the beads that it needs, and the tits never show (flash just sat there loading, ironic, I know).

"They just look like the most hardened breast implants ever with remote controlled hyperactive nipples."

I think this summarizes the early 21st century quite well.

Actually delmoi I started with the C cup and moderate exercise.

Very interesting, but of practically no use to me as my breasts don't bounce very much no matter what I do. When will they develop a garment to keep my pot belly from gettin' jiggly and drooping to my knees?

C cup, Light exercise, side view, Normal Bra. Those aren't breasts. Those are frogs. FROGS.

I'm with jacquilynne on this one. Furthermore, why would they have the option to view F / G cups if they do not actually make bras that cater for them? Other to give a few bored guys a bouncing boob fix, anyway.
posted by wookienookie at 7:24 AM on February 28, 2006


Just to weigh in as a woman who, gasp, exercises braless - there is no way my boobs move that much. I would totally have noticed by now if my breasts had whacked me in the face on the treadmill. And that's the B cup, front view: those babies are hopping, much much more than the real thing.

Not really, my size is just larger than they get up to. They do hit my cup size in their 4th level support bra, but without high enough band size range. I suppose fat chicks aren't supposed to exercise.

I just thought it was kind of funny that I could pick my cup size in the simulator and then it recommended a bra for me, but the bra it recommended didn't come in the cup size I chose.

Total crap. The breast supported with a normal bra looks more out of control than the completely naked one.

Also, the wirefram view is very creepy. Kinda like that scene in Weird Science, but worse.

This might do the trick. Oh, for the days when girdles were still fashion nouveau and there were still commercials on TV. Like for the "I can't believe it's a girdle" girdle.

So, the lesson learned here is that women with big, big, big boobs should not go running naked? Who knew skin could stretch so far?

Damn, it looks like they took down the bouncing butt from my old post! It was about as "educational" and alot more entertaining.

PHINC, try the Liberator site, better quality and animal prints too!

Breastacles?

Why are we wearing bras on our heads?
posted by loquacious at 8:43 AM on February 28, 2006


As someone who has studied his share of breasts in motion, I challenge the physics of the c-cup in running mode. Their model suggests breasts that are over-weighted at the nipples. Then again, maybe the average woman has subdermal steel nipple implants, and I just haven't kept up. Kids today, I tell ya.

Thanks for the fun little flash.

Maybe the breasts are fighting wildly against patriarchy, piratebowling. Free the Springfield two!

Considering the level of tech for 3D rendering these days this is rather disappointing. Novel, but the execution is sagging.

When I took a fencing class I had to use something similar to protect my chest, basically a pair of metal bowls that slipped into a pocket inside my suit. The instructor referred to them as "rice bowls".

I haven't clicked the link in the FPP yet though because my roommates are around and they think I'm strange enough as it is.
