My sis-in-law recently taught me about Square Breast Syndrome. You know, the look of one square, flat breast because you keep your cell phone in your bra. Apparently, the 90-pound handbag that we all tote around is not sufficient enough space to stash our phones. Apparently, neither are pockets. Apparently, this a common enough trend a special bra designed for this purpose. It’s called the JoeyBra.
Tawkon explains this trend:
Some women do it so they don’t lose their phone in a club. Others do it to keep it steady during a workout. Still other women keep their cell phones tucked inside their bras all day long – at the office, school, wherever – for the convenience of proximity.
OK, so we can’t even be disconnected for long enough to exercise. I get it. But a recent announcement indicates that — in addition to giving you weird square boobs — keeping your phone in your bra may be actually hazardous to your health.
“Could where you carry your cell phone make you sick? Some doctors say they’re seeing evidence of breast cancer that could be linked to where some women keep their mobile phones.”
What do you think? Do you carry your phone in your bra?
Note to self: Carry a thick, lead-lined bag; don’t sleep with phone on nightstand inches from brain; don’t put phone in pockets; don’t let kid play with phone; always use a headset; throw phone into toilet and flush repeatedly; run away and become Amish.
