Fun Facts – All About Bras

I have a habit of reading the newspaper every day. I am amazed at the interesting, and sometimes weird, articles I find. I found the following information to be amazing. This will probably be more interesting to women, at least I think so.

Did you know?

According to common belief, the invention of the ‘bra’ happened in the late 1800’s or early 1900’s. The University of Innsbruck, just recently, announced that archaeologist Beatrix Nutz discovered a gauze bra, that was worn at least 600 years ago. The bra, she uncovered was trimmed with lace and had two broad shoulder straps, and probably a back strap.  The picture, of this 600 year old bra, was amazing. It looked very much like today’s bra.

And that’s a fact.
