Nice Rack!

Pairs of synthetic, realistically shaped boobs, in order of size, nailed to a plank and mounted on the wall in lingerie shops

I want to buy my girlfriend some lingerie but don't know what cup size she is. Sure, I could ask her, but then she'd have an inkling of my surprise present.

This must happen to chaps all the time, non?

If there was a line of boobs on the wall, I could quite easily judge which is the correct size. Also, an assortment of different mannequins might be useful to figure out any other measurements I might need to know.

Girlfriends sold separately.

       In a lingerie shop [hippo]?

       Hmmm - it might depend how realistic the line of boobs was. There's plenty of sitcom potential in this idea, which is good. E.g. imagine buxom sales assistant waiting at the end of this line of boobs while a shortsighted man makes his way down the line of fake boobs, feeling each pair in turn...

       Ha ha, I'm thinking Frank Drebin...

       Exactly!

       These would make great stocking stuffers! And why not make some of them into other products, like oven mitts or ear muffs? I proudly bun! [+]

       This "shop" would probably have to be Grace Bros.

       Turn this idea into a climbing wall and forget about ever needing a girlfriend.

       [rcarty] that deserves it's own idea

       I can imagine the use of prostheitic breasts as climbing handholds - using them as footholds doesn't seem right somehow...
hippo, Dec 09 2011
  

       How can something that feels so right seem so wrong?

       It might to those with a very specific fetish.

       //climbing wall//   

       <announcement> ...and now the artist will demonsrate how to climb the wall using nothing but suction...
