To Bra or Not to Bra?

August 9, 2017

Back in the protesting 60's  feminists gathered at the Atlantic City Beauty Pageant (1968) and sparked the mostly mythological "bra burning" episode that is now the classic symbol of female freedom. No actual bra burning occured as the protesters were unable to secure a fire permit, but garments did end up in the trash.  But, even then, there was evidence that bras, especially very constricting varieties, were not healthy for women to wear, "emancipated" or not.
