abraksis747: “No Underwear in space”
radome9: Yeah, nothing aggressively female about a metal bikini.
steamfolk: I’d imagine the stylistic choice was actually made to distance Star Wars from the schlocky seventies space babe sci fi tropes. Even Trek had the mini skirts and alien women desperate for Kirk to teach them about sex.
fanboy79: Get those distracting tits off my star destroyer.
MrCrash: I also heard at the end of the day she’d rip off the tape and give it to a random member of the crew.
Some nerd out there who hung lights for Star Wars probably has a box full of old gritty tape that touched Carrie Fisher’s teenage boobs.
Grind one out to that, internet.
Toke_420: If boobs dont bounce and juggle in space, then I dont wanna go..
Lokotor: Listen to me. I’m the director and I know what I’m fucking doing. I know what fans of the space fantasy genre want to see, and I can assure you it is *not* boobs. Why would 13-24 year old men want to see that!? Fucking idiots.
– George Lucas, Director of *Star Wars, Episode I: The Phantom Menace*
striker5501: Wait didn’t he make her not wear a bra?? Why say “You can’t wear a bra, instead you have to use this tap to keep your titties from bouncing.”
shadowCloudrift: They still jiggled when she ran around on the Death Star in A New Hope.
cock_pussy_up: But I like aggressively feminine breast bouncing and jiggling.
leopard_tights: This seems contradictory with the “no bras in space” story that has been circulating forever. Why would you want her to not wear a bra and then tape her boobs?
Ghinzoo: Had they been free to bounce my sexual awakening may have occurred years earlier.
TheCaptainCog: Then did a complete 180 and put her in a gold bikini.
infernal_llamas: She had an affair with ford?
I did not know that
Sheepthrills: Lol cracked after hours had a joke about how George Lucas’s Star Wars world was a phallocracy. They apparently weren’t wrong
5_sec_rule: Judy Garland had to wear a special corset in the Wizard of Oz to make her look younger.
malachilenomade: I finished the audiobook of *Wishful Drinking* just this morning. She said George explained to her that bras would not have been worn because the body expands a bit in space and those undergarments would cut off your circulation.
Stealthcutter: god bless carrie fisher. and her tits.
i_am_the_devil_: …And still they bounced.
_Professor_Chaos_: I kind of feel like this *isn’t* true since we’ve always heard the stories of how Lucas convinced her not to wear a bra. Something about “there are no bras in space”. This actually *added* some jiggle, and if you look closely (which we all have!) in the first movie there is definitely no tape holding down the girls.
liamemsa: >aggressively feminine
sounds like someone came up with a great name for my new post-punk riot grrl ambient band
WickedTriggered: That explains the strap on.
A-Dog22: It is true that Carrie Fisher was the intergalactic bae of every young male. The metal bikini might not be aggressively female, but it did cause the force to awaken.
shreddedkittentacos: Aggressive females are the best females.
Rex9: Those younger pictures of her really emphasize just how much Millie Bobby Brown looks like Carrie. If they played it right, they could have Millie play a young Leia.
PapaEmiritus: What i am suppose to do with this info
