Flame-proof bras

I’m sure any girl who has ever suffered the embarrassment of her bra strap popping open in the middle of a PE lesson, and had to enlist the help of a friend to solve the problem can sympathise with the cries of the Swedish female soldiers this week.

Everyday M&S support just doesn’t cut it out in the field apparently, causing all kinds of hassle as female soldiers have to interrupt training sessions in order to re-hook their bras.

Such poor quality equipment is not acceptable, the Swedish soldiers argue, and moreover, it is dangerous in combat as such underwear is highly flammable.

Thankfully, the Swedish army have put in a new order for battle-safe bras that should arrive early next year.

At last, something that would make even Madonna proud… but sadly not yet available in Topshop.
