Irish businesses urging “no bra money” payments during heatwave

No exceptions on this one.

Businesses across Dublin are urging customers to stop paying with so-called “bra money” during the heatwave.

Mattress Mick and Pip’s Cafe and Deli have both asked customers to stop paying with the money from their bra while the weather is so hot.

A lot of women have the habit of storing their cash in their bras when they’ve got no pockets, but us ladies know that in heat like this, it can get very warm there.

We get where these places are coming from, we can only imagine the amount of sweat that’s building up in that region.


Mattress Mick posted an urgent alert on his Facebook account urging customers for “no bra money”.

He said: “An URGENT alert in our #Coolock store.

“Due to soaring heatwave across Dublin and on going safe trading with social distancing we would urge all customers not to pay us from their bras and keep your euro notes in your purse or handbag at all times.

“Yours Mattress Mick.”

Jumping on the bandwagon, the Crumlin based cafe issued the same warning, not wanting to deal with boob sweat, which is so fair.

Posting to social media, Pip Cafe and Deli said: “Due to high temperatures we will not be accepting money out of your bra!”

We’re surprised it took them this long to stop accepting money out of there, and Pip Cafe also noted that they will be refusing “jock or sock money” while they’re at it.
