Germany Gets The Bullet-Proof Bra

by | 5th, August 2008

GERMAN policewomen, and policemen, have tken delivery of a new bullett- proof bra:

It is being dubbed the new “bullet-proof bra”, a new kind of Wonderbra which could help protect thousands of women police officers here in Germany.

It may sound like a joke, but this is a serious matter – the policewoman who came up with the idea said normal bras can be dangerous when worn in combination with a bullet-proof vest.

“The impact of a bullet can push the metal and plastic bits of the bra into an officer’s body, causing serious injury,” said Carmen Kibat, an adviser on equal opportunities for the Hamburg-based Bundespolizei – Germany’s federal police force.

“I always thought normal bras posed a safety risk and I wanted to change that,” she said.

“These new bras are very important and they will help all our women officers.”


Each German policewomen will get three of the bras.
