Biomimetic Bra (wearable technology)

Bare’ is biomimetic bra. Different than biometrics as you’re not collecting data.

The design mimics the antagonistic muscle structure for a better support and lymph/ fascia movement as the breasts sit on top of the muscle and move in a figure-8 motion, and lymph (stored toxins in the body) are milked passively through muscle movement.

One theory behind breast cancer is that the bra underwiring restricts the function of muscle moment to drain lymph.

Fascia

“Fascia is a thin layer of connective tissue that encases your body under your skin like a wetsuit and actually wraps itself around every muscle, joint, and organ. If you’ve ever cut into a piece of raw chicken or steak and seen that thin, white, filmy layer, then you’ve seen fascia.

While fascia is incredibly malleable and thin, it’s also largely responsible for the shape of our bodies. How is this? Well, fascia can store toxins . . Most importantly, it can thicken and harden when it is not used correctly.

When you have a stiff shoulder, for example, often it is not damage to the muscle that it causing it, but a hardening or thickening of the fascia around the shoulder muscles and joint.”

How: Materials of different elasticity and layering.

Timeframe: Open

Goal: Iteration and thought transference. Can I communicate what I was thinking?

Desire: Supportive second skin. To acknowledge women’s bodies change.

Tools: Tracing and Web MD
