WELCOME TO BRA WEEK! This week and next, the Autostraddle writers and some special guests will be giving you the scoop on over-the-shoulder-boulder-holders and otherwise-inclined chest-covering situations — fashion, history, feelings and so much more.
In the cups, hanging between them, or tucked into a side or shoulder strap, these sex toys and safer sex items can all fit into your bra* and are perfect for sex on the go or any time you just don’t feel like bringing a bag.
1. Babeland Buzz Vibe ($12) — This tiny watch-battery-powered vibrator is perfect for beginners, anyone travelling super light or anyone who needs only a touch of vibration to get off. It’s also waterproof and comes in pink or blue.
2. Tango ($65) — The We-Vibe Tango is everything you’d ever want and dream in a very-slightly-larger-than-a-bullet vibrator. It’s made of silicone, whisper quiet, rechargeable, waterproof and super powerful. (Read Autostraddle’s review.)
3. We-Vibe 4 ($159) — This small hands-free vibrator stays in place during penetration and hits your clit and g-spot at the same time. This version comes with a remote.
4. Bootie ($34) — This flexible little butt plug is beginner friendly and still fun for anal enthusiasts. It’s made of velvety silicone and comes in purple or black.
5. Delightful Clamps ($16) — These alligator-style nipple clamps can be loosened or tightened according to how much pressure you want, making them perfect for anyone interested in anything from mostly the aesthetics of nipple clamps to potentially intense sensation.
6. Lube samples ($2 each, approx.) — Coming in tiny tear-packet travel sizes, samples of lube are the best way to stay wet when it’s not practical to bring an entire bottle of lube with you (or when you want to try just a bit of a new brand). Remember not to use silicone lube with silicone toys.
7. Glyde dental dams ($1.75 each) — Dental dams might be pretty unpopular but that doesn’t mean they’re not a good idea.
8. Skyn condoms ($1 each) — Sometimes queer ladypeople just need condoms, whether over vibrators or dildos or butt plugs or straplesses or, in a pinch, fingers or cut open as dental dams. These ones are lubricated and latex-free.
9. Black Dragon latex gloves ($20 for 100) — These black gloves are perfect for finger play or fisting and are way sexier than the translucent white gloves most drug stores carry. Flip them inside out with clean hands so they stay as clean as possible when you’re carrying them around. (If you have a latex allergy, try nitrile non-latex gloves instead.)
*Whether or not these toys/items will fit discreetly in your bra specifically may depend on the size of your bra, and its contents.

Also sometimes queer lady people need condoms because they are having sexy times with people whose genitals condoms fit. Wheee.
Yes! Thank you
Agreed very much, being in both groups, but that’s what ‘straplesses’ refers to :3
Just wanted to say I feel strongly represented by the cover photo. Important.
Apparently the only downside to wearing an A-cup is that I can’t constantly carry around a vibrator. You know, for emergencies.
Riiiighttt. I have friends who carry half a corner store in their bras and I’m lucky if I can hide cash discretely. Sigh.
truth. lack of storage is definitely the only drawback to an A-cup that I can think of.
also any of the things listed that are in some kind of packaging just *look* uncomfortable to carry that way, what with the sharp corners on them. Then again, I can’t even go bra shopping without the tags on the bras giving me angry red scratch marks all over my shoulders and chest.
I might be okay with scratch marks in the right situation, but just from carrying something in my bra? I’ll pass.
Actually, the We-Vibe Tango is not made of silicone. The button is, but the body is hard ABS Plastic. It is the best damn vibrator, though.
Eagle Creek makes a silk mini-pocket that attaches to a bra strap. No doubt it’s intended for travel and keeping money safe. But, hey, ideal for condoms, micro vibrators, lube sample……
