happy birthday III

The bra is 100 years old! I am resisting the urge to use puns.

One hundred years ago, Vogue coined the term “brassiere.”

Since then, it’s been called plenty: The 18 Hour bra, the Cross Your Heart bra, the training bra, the padded bra, the sports bra, the front-close bra, the strapless bra, the backless bra, the plunge bra, the sheer bra, the Wonderbra, the convertible bra, the T-back bra, the Bralette, the minimizer, and every teenage boy’s favorite, the over-the-shoulder boulder holder.

The article contains some interesting bra-related trivia. But over-the-shoulder boulder holder? NEVER heard of that one. Perhaps because I was never a teenage boy.
