How many words can you list which are plurals words ending in the letter "S", but become singular when another "S" is added?

How about bras and brass

I don't think this one is strictly allowed but handles and handless

This isn't perfect, but cares and caress. caress isn't too singular, but its all I got.

There's a strange lack of confidence in the answers, but all are great so far! There are many more!

Handless is just fine, and caress is most definitely singular. The plural is "caresses".
