Your lingerie came today, Ray!
FRANK: That’s right. A brassiere for a man. The Mansiere, get it?
Once again, pop culture was way ahead of what some folks like to call reality.
Everybody remembers the classic Seinfeld episode about The Mansiere.
Now, a Japanese online lingerie retailer is selling bras for cross-dressing men, and they’ve quickly become one of its most popular items. I am not making this up.
I just hope this thing comes with detailed instructions, because while most guys have had experience unhooking bras, actually fastening them is not something they’re familiar with.
