    They still should depend on the vest to protect them. Get a running bra, and there's no metal to break loose.

    Have I missed the stories about German policewomen getting shot in the tits?

    If I'm reading the article right, they do still depend on the bulletproof vest – these bras are made like sports bras with no metal or plastic parts. Presumably policewomen could just wear sports bras instead, but these police issue ones they know for sure there are no parts in it that could damage them.

    What we need to test out this theory is a bra model, this bra, a bulletproof vest, guns, bullets, me, and lube. Even if this bra doesn't work, at least one of us will get lucky.

    If it reduces the chance of a female officer from getting seriously injured that's all good; imagine a vest saving and officer from the bullet, but the underwire of her bra pierces her chest! :eek: Bullet proof or not, getting shot in the chest is going to hurt!


    But one can't help asking ... Why hasn't somebody made boxers with a bullet proof cup?

    You two are making it hard for me not to post what I'm thinking. :p

    On a serious note, I used to know some NY city policemen. They all had backup weapons and such. But what amazed me, is the number who wore a cup. Guess the bad guys go for the family jewels. Anyhow, seeing this bra improvement is great for those females who serve as police officers.

    Sure, it's all fine now, but what happens when a ricochet goes up her nose??

    Sounds like that would be a fun Mythbuster episode.
