Ho, ho, ho!
Designed to stay on?
Magnetic bra, undies designed to stay on
A BRITISH department store unveiled a hi-tech line of lingerie today that stays on thanks to magnets.
The underwear, about to go on sale at high-end department store Selfridges, features tiny invisible magnets instead of fastenings to overcome the problem of tricky bra hooks.
The bra comes with a matching pair of "clip-on, clip-off" panties, which have magnetic side strips.
Created by French designer Laetitia Schlumberger, and named "Dement" - the French word for 'insane" - the underwear costs upwards of £165 ($US256) for a bra and panties set.

Actually, they've missed the point about the name: Dement! is a play on word with d'aimant, the french word for magnet...
