A new product set to launch next year is as innovative as it gets in the world of perfectly drying your padded bra.

It’s called the Bra Dryer 2.0, a drying device that zaps bras dry in 20-30 minutes by using infrared light to soak up moisture -- without ruining the structure of the bra. “The idea actually came from a female friend who asked why it’s such a problem drying bras,” engineer Alexander Farennikov, 35, told the Daily News. “She said it’s always a hassle.” A conventional dryer is too rough for most delicate undergarments, and air-drying takes too long, Farennikov said. Thus, the creation of this innovative device.

This product, which you use by draping the bra over the molding and then answering electronic questions about the size of the bra and the amount of padding, determines on its own how much time it will take to dry it.

The Bra Dryer 2.0 will be available in 2014 and will cost somewhere between $150 and $200.

After I wash a bra on very delicate with other delicate clothes, I take the bras and hang them over the shower curtain rod to dry along with the other clothes.  It's cheap and it works every time.  If I know I know I'll need a certain bra the next day, I'll wash the bra, ring out the moisture with a towel and hang it over my dryer - the curtain rod.  Works every time and doesn't cost me a thing.  The other alternative is to buy 4 or 5 of the same bra you use for almost every outfit in different colors and you won't need a bra dryer either.  If you can afford to pay $200 for bra dryer,  you can afford 4 new bras.

Reason #842 I'm glad to be a man. I didn't even know that drying a bra was a problem. I have noticed them hanging up on the towel racks and such, but I never thought to ask if there was a reason, I was just happy to see female underwear. Yes, ladies, it's true, we are not that difficult to please. Just show us your boobies, or even something that makes us think about your boobies, and we're happy.

I can't see how using a a drying rack and a conventional fan would take more than 20 minutes.  And instead of one bra getting dried at a time, you can dry the entire rack. minutes.

Hey ladies -- if you own at least two bras, then you have enough to make air drying not an issue.

Let's see...4 females in the family, all wearing bras X 7 bras per week for each, equals not enough time to use this contraption.  Each has a belt rack hanging over their bedroom door that does the job for a lot less than $150-$200.

    8 wardrobe staples to buy now that will only get better with age

    Three summers ago, I bought a pair of soft, white-calfskin Chanel loafers. I spent months trying to keep them pristine, but it wasn’t long before a July thunderstorm left them and me soaked. I began steeling myself for what I thought was inevitable: a solemn drop in the trash. But once the loafers dried, I found the shoes’ stained stitching—now storm-cloud gray—was lovely and a few new wrinkles in the leather were charming, like smile lines for shoes. I started to wear them freely—taking on puddles and tossing them onto the sand at the beach—and before long, they transformed. The roughened toe-tops reminded me of a welcoming, worn armchair, and a wet-and-hot summer had molded the material perfectly to my feet.
