Everything about the bra that only opens for true love is incredibly odd.

Remember the DIY clap-off bra? Or the LED light-up bra? (Katy Perry certainly took a cue from this one at the Grammys.)

Well this new creation is the next step in bizarre lingerie.

The bra, called the 'true love tester', was created by a Japanese lingerie company. It is basically a chastity belt for boobs (I know! It's so weird!).

This is how it works.

First a true romantic must wear it. Obviously.

Then, according to Rocket News 24, it uses science to 'read your body's signals.'

"The bra has built-in sensors that measures the wearer's heart-rate. The data collected by the sensors is sent to a special app on your phone.The app then analyses the heart-rate of the wearer.

"If the wearer's heart-rate reaches a predetermined limit, the bra unhooks by itself," they explain helpfully.

Is anybody else as alarmed as I am?

Lots of things make my heart race that are not associated with my boyfriend.

Like public speaking. Or networking. Or buffets. I do not want my bra to fly open at any of these occasions.

Suddenly, thanks to the true love bra, the thought of your heart racing in the heat of the moment is not so much romantic and fairy tale-esque but faintly alarming and tinged with the dread of certain and complete humiliation.

We'll take bras that we can unhook at our own will please.
