Booby Trap

 

The first bra was patented in the early 19th century by New York socialite Mary Phelps Jacob. But, according to archeologists in Austria, that’s simply not true!

New discoveries that were unearthed at Lemberg Castle in Tyrol reveal four bras from over 600 years ago. The bras were found with more than 2,700 textile fragments made from linen and cotton. They were dug up with remnants of leather, wood and straw.

They also found what looks to be under panties. Beatrix Nutz the archeologist who found the relics claims that they’re  men’s underwear — women did not wear anything under their flowing skirts back then.

“Underpants were considered a symbol of male dominance and power,” she said.

Medieval drawings often show a man and a woman fighting for a pair of underpants in a symbolic battle to see who “wears the trousers” in the family.
