Blog: Leonie BarrieBullet-proof bras

Leonie Barrie | 8 August 2008

German policewomen are being issued with what are being described as bullet-proof bras – to protect them from being injured by their bullet-proof vests.

It’s no laughing matter of course, since normal bras can pose a safety risk if the impact of a bullet pushes the metal and plastic components into an officer's body. The new bras look like sports bras, have no under-wires or fastenings, and have the word ‘Police’ printed at the bottom.

More than 3,000 front-line women police officers across Germany are now being encouraged to wear the new bras on duty.
