Old News: Old Bra

16 Nov

Women have supposedly only been wearing bras for a hundred years.  But women have had breasts for millions of years, and those breasts can pain their bearers during exercise, pregnancy, or just everyday life – and for a lot of women, the best antidote is some external support.  So it’s no surprise that a few 14th century bras were found in the floorboards of an Austrian castle.  It’s certainly neat, though; it reminds us that the women back then were women just like we are.
