Here's the original text:

A revolutionary advancement in bra technology. No bra this weightless has ever delivered so much coverage. IPEX ™ refers to a graduated pad seamlessly integrated at the apex of the bra cup. When combined with our new microsmooth fabric, the result is incredibly lightweight, with coverage where it's needed. A bra technology this advanced could only have come from Victoria's Secret.

It's good to know that one's clothing is so advanced.

My guess was razor blades - you know, the all-new closer shave with SIX blades. (Did you know you can't even buy twin-blade razors anymore? And you have to look hard to find one with only three.)

I think I could use that new technology over here, though. My girls need all the help they can get.

I was guessing laptops or phones.

I would NEVER have guessed bras.

Razor blades, laptops or phones - it could work for any of them!

I'm thinking of borrowing the ad copy for our next tech product too.

I suppose that's why they feel justified charging so much for bras. All that technology required some high-paid consultants, I'm sure.
