100 Year Old Bra?

by Nicola Rodney-Crook on January 31, 2013

Well not really a 100 year old bra, more a case of 100 years since the birth of the modern bra!

It was a century ago that New York socialite Mary Phelps (no relation to Michael Phelps) Jacob invented the first modern brassiere after finding she had no suitable undergarments for a recently purchased sheer evening gown.
