One of these is, like, the official bra of tree murder.
Also, the knots did not last for long, although that may have been because we were not great at tying them. Freddie pointed out that because she had much less boob to support the bra, it basically started slipping down her chest immediately.
It was sort of like tying your wet hair up in a towel after a shower: It'll stay for a second, but don't try to run down the block while wearing it.
Fred probably could have worn this for like four days in a row and been perfectly peachy. I, on the other hand, forgot that necklines were probably much higher in 1914, and the lack of support meant that I spent much of the day drowning in boob sweat.
That's because in order for the tips of these bras to maintain their structural integrity, they had to be stuffed with a lot of toilet paper. There were times when I would lean over and toilet paper would fall out.
Also, how weird is it that in the 1940s, there was a popular bra where the whole gimmick was that the tips of the cups suggested the appearance of nipples? The 1940s!
