If your dream is to put together the world’s oldest outfit, you’re one step closer now with the discovery of the world’s oldest bra. Obviously you also need the world’s oldest pair of jeans and the world’s oldest purse to go with it. The 600 year old bra was found by Archaeologist Beatrix Nutz near an Austrian castle and looks surprisingly similar to bras today. Archaeologists and fashionistas alike are baffled because it was previously believed that women didn’t start wearing bras until the 19th century. It’s possible that the use of bras just wasn’t very well documented and that bra design hasn’t changed much over the centuries. That or one of the Doctor’s companions was doing the nasty in the pasty and forgot her skivvies before she hopped back on the Tardis.
