(Newser) – Finally, a new kind of support from bras—we're talking about the emotional kind. Microsoft has developed a bra that could help women stop overeating when they're stressed. How? Sensors detect physiological changes that indicate you're overindulging, the information is sent to your smartphone via Bluetooth, and the app delivers an alert to remind you to stop chowing down—and can even offer suggestions for how to redirect your attention.

This bra will never sell at Wal Mart. Its too late for those 350 pound shoppers to exercise self control.

I thought I was going to hate this idea, but perhaps, it could be useful, if that is what it is doing. People don't eat too much because they're hungry. Obesity exists because of a combination of laziness, apathy, stress, addictive substances in the food-like products we have substituted for real food, emotional trauma, lack of physical activity and a deep fear of failing, or asking for help, that leads people who need it, to instead become complacent with their condition. Too bad this can't monitor food choices and suggest healthier options.

Kelly & Michael were talking about this on their show, and Kelly said a device in your bra pinches your nipples if you reach for anything fattening and won't stop until you put it down. HaHa!
