The Most Sadistic Bras Out There (NSFW)

While we're all about beautiful underthings, the most important factor we look for is a bra that's comfortable. Anything that pinches, pulls, or pokes, and they get buried at the bottom of our underwear drawers. However, even those can't compare with the bras we found that act as de facto vises, torture devices, and just plain ouchie-hurty deliverers. From bras that turn your boobs into torpedoes of pain to others that make steel plates look like cashmere, here are the 15 most painful bras out there.
