In nature, many animals have a defense response that makes them puff up and appear larger, warding off potential predators and annoyances… now women can do it too!

It’s a classic “fight or flight” behavior that most animals from cats to puffer fish still have, but we seem to have lost it along the way. Now, Chromat, an “architectural sportswear” designer who has created things we could never afford for people like Beyoncé and Taylor Swift, has figured out how to do with fashion what our DNA has forgotten to do with our bodies.

They call it the “Adrenaline” dress. Using biometric sensors that track your adrenaline levels with Intel’s Curie chip, it sends a signal to 3D printed wings on the dress that cause them to expand and retract on based on your heart and breathing rates.
