Bras are basically a storage solution, offering a great place to pop those little items you need quick, easy access to throughout the day. These stowaways are often purely practical, but sometimes they can get a little… weird.
1. Beauty supplies
Who has time to spend rummaging around their handbag for beauty supplies? Little staples like lipstick to Q-tips — which Sam Frost has admitted to storing in her bra quite frequently — are easy to tuck away into your cups, and make those two second touch-ups a breeze.
Bobby pins can also be clipped to the side of your bra for hair emergencies and mascara and eyeliner can nestle in between your boobs. In short, your bra can pretty much double as your personal beauty counter.
It’s not uncommon for me to peel my bra off at the end of the day and find enough spare change for tomorrow’s coffee. Score!

Sick of shuffling through the 472 cards in your purse to find your transport card when you’re already running five minutes late for the train on a Monday? Just pop it in your bra for easy access. Honestly, no one will care if you have to fish it out during your morning commute — you’re saving everyone valuable time so it’s basically a public service.
Sure, they might leave some weird indentations in your boobs — but it’s a small price to pay for not having a two second heart-attack when you begin rummaging around your bag for the keys.
This one is a double bonus. Not only does your bra provide you with some handy storage options for your daily snacking habits, but your boobs will smell minty fresh or super sweet at the end of the day.
