World’s oldest known bra

Spread the love

The world’s oldest functioning bra has been discovered. Details are here at the Smithsonian. The same thing happened to me once: I discovered a secret panel in the big-old house I was living in, and there was a crawl space. In it I found WW I era discharge papers from the Italian Army and a whalebone corset from the same time period. This new bra, though, is much older. It is from the 15th century. I’m surprised that people didn’t think that the bra was that old.
