The bras issued to Swedish female military conscripts easily catch fire and are prone to coming undone, making them inappropriate for the battlefield, claims a conscripts’ rights group.

The coming undone part is good; the flammable part, not so much.


*ducks flying machete*

"Bwaaa-ha-ha! My sinister plan to keep ladies unfettered proceeds apace!"

Duct tape helps...on jeffy's mouth and hands.

I've dated a few chicks who wore "combat-ready underwear". ;->~

They need these.

Cool, wiredog. Are they fire-proof? Cause some of us are pretty hot. Siouxie wants to know.

What do our American female soldiers wear? And can't Sweden figure out to research this sort of thing before they sentence their females in arms to burst into flames?

Braless in battle would give the lady combatants a huge advantage.

Swedish women with hot and flimsy undergarments. I'm having a hard time seeing the downside here, folks.

In addition, the bras aren’t flame resistant and, once lit, can melt onto conscripts’ skin, the Göteborgs-Posten (GP) newspaper reports.

Now there is an incentive to quit smoking.

And btw, what exactly is the process one goes through to conscript young Swedish women into mandatory service? Is this some sort of government position I could apply for? I am willing to relocate if necessary. I could throw in some cash too.

Hold your fire!


They could just "go commando".

This thread is busting out with funny comments.

Annie, yes we is. We'll need to supersize those for Punkin.

She could wear a camoflauge bra. Then the 'girls' would disappear.

*Adjusts Annie's ... "u"*

heeey, that tickles.

Well, if they're gonna burst into flames, it's probably a good thing that they're prone to come undone.

J, we can always trust you to find the silver lining.

“Our opinion is that the Swedish Armed Forces should have ordered good, flame-proof underwear,”

Words to live by.

Flaming hot Swedish babes bursting out of their bras?

They make it sound like it's a bad thing.

Vat, I thought you said you vanted inflammable undervear?

(yawn) Cups of warm milk always makes me drowsy.

Battle-ready boob support

I'd like one of those in pink, Chris.

I already have it in pink Siouxie. Does it come in an animal print?


Cougar anyone?

DPChris...I don't even want to know what kind of gear gets carried in those straps and pockets

Geezer alert:

She's come undone
She found a mountain that was far too high
And when she found out she couldn't fly
It was too late

It's too late
She's gone too far
She's lost the sun
She's come undone

Thank you Randy Bachman.

Best quote= "may help press the issue with the Armed Forces’ top brass."

Sweden has an army...?

The Sun UK had the same story with a headline about "Com-bust-ible Bras".

Secretary Robert Gates has just announced the U.S. military will sell their $2600.00 "brazookas" to Sweden...
