Bic For Her: Finally, A Pen Ladies Can Use

Image for article titled Bic For Her: Finally, A Pen Ladies Can Use

While browsing in Stapes, a reader spotted an invention that's going to solve a lot of problems for us ladies: Bic for Her. Our tipster writes, "Oh thank the heavens above! My feeble, female hands were just a-strugglin' with those bulky man pens."


We feel you. The pen manufacturers' refusal to make a product that accommodates our inability to use anything that's not cute is nothing short of discrimination. But thankfully, Bic has listened to our many complaint letters (which of course, we dictated to men). Sure, companies have come out with slim pens in pretty pastel colors before, but how were we supposed to know they were lady pens?

"Bic for Her" is currently only listed under the European name "Cristal For Her" on the company's website. (It figures that chic European broads would get to test-drive the new pens first!) It seems the pens only comes with black or blue ink, but hopefully Bic will release a version that writes in pink — it makes the hearts above our "i"s look so much better!

Cristal For Her [Bic]



Cristal isn't the European name, it's the model name. There's the Bic Round Stic (round shaft, previously opaque white with black/blue/red caps corresponding to ink color, currently semi-transparent gray/blue/red corresponding to ink color) and the Bic Cristal (hexagonal shaft, clear with black/blue/red caps corresponding to ink color). Which means we'll probably also see Bic Round Stics for Her!
