No, not bullet bras

These are bullet-proof bras:

German police women are to be issued with bullet-resistant bras to give them complete undercover protection.

The new underwear was developed as a second barrier of defence after normal bras were found to cause injuries while on duty: the officers’ bullet-proof vests, while stopping the force of gunshots in an attack, pushed the plastic and metal parts of their underwear into their flesh, causing injury.

The new garments have neither plastic nor metal to cut into one’s skin. Three will be issued to each of the approximately 3000 front-line women in German police departments.

    Oh my God, that gives undercover a whole new meaning in police work, eh? Too funny!

    A bit misleading, as these are NOT bulletproof, rather, safer bras to be worn beneath bulletproof vests.
