While I don't doubt that it's possible to build a bra that size, I'm a little skepical about the way it's just draped there, covering cars and blocking traffic. But that could be staged.

I like to go down to the playground and watch the kids run and jump and scream, because they don't know I'm only using blanks.

I am pretty sure that is from that movie with Darryl Hannah where she is gigantic.

It looks like an underwire bra, but the bottom of the cups drape over the cars. Also, its own weight would make the fabric collapse to the ground.

I know we've seen it before. But I don't remember what it turned out to be.

Heavens to the Divine Miss M! Our cups runneth over!

I suspect that Otto von Titsling and Phillip d'Brassiere have something to do with this!

The part that's draped appears to be the soft part under the wire, nt the wire part itself. Also, if it's one of those bras with semi-stiff (Just to beat anyone to the punch yes, I said "stiff") padding the cups could stand up that way.

I can't believe I'm seriously discussing the mechanics of a gigantic bra. [lol]

Why are we discussing "underwires"? At that size, it's hardly a wire! More like an I-beam, I'd bet. [Wink]
