I have been working and working and working on stuff I can't blog about yet. I'm exhausted and in this state, I find this kind of thing very entertaining. Hope you do, too.
I keep looking at this illustration and wonder what happens when the wearer of this breast supporter turns the upper part of her torso to look over her shoulder?
Here is some of the description for this bra.
BREAST SUPPOETER This invention relates to new and useful improvements in breast supporters for vent the flapping of the brea sts while walking, which always is an undesired feature in. women afflicted with breasts of unusual proportions.
The spring means is however, of such a nature as to permit the stems to move downwardly when the user of the support bends over, so that the brackets will v tion with the plate is a narrower keeper plate so not bind, and thus produce discomfort.

Here is text from this invention, which is actually written in legible English.
The object of the invention is to provide a new and improved breast supporter, which is simple and durable in construction, designed to take the place of the usual corset, and to be worn more principally with loose dresses of the so called empire style.
The improved breast supporter is provided with a plate A, made of sheet metal, cardboard or other suitable material and preferably covered with silk, canvas or other desirable fabric. The plate A is bent to conform to the shape of the human body at the front directly under the breasts, the ends of the plate terminating near the arm pits. The top edge of the plate A, is approximately of an inverted V-shape with the apex at the middle and extending between the breasts, and the sides of the V, are concaved to conform to the contour of the breasts at their bases or largest diameters.
But, I'm not so sure about wearing a bra made of sheet metal! HA!

Hope to be back next week talking about fun projects.
