America – home of the gun. Now, famed as land of the super bra (with the help of a little bit of luck). In Detroit recently a woman had a lucky escape from harm when a burglar’s bullet deflected of the underwire of her bra!
According to the BBC ‘the bullet smashed the window and hit her but instead of causing serious injury – or worse it was deflected off the wiring in her bra’. It seems that the police we so impressed by the strength of the wire they admitted; "We need to get some bulletproof vests made from that. It is some strong wire." We all know that bras have many different uses; ranging from the practical (anyone remember Joanna Lumley making shoes out of her bra) to the seductive. But, this new use is perhaps the most adventurous!!!
Check out Mio’s great collection of underwired bras! We can’t promise they’ll deflect bullets, but we know they’ll look and feel great!
