Except that it seems awfully stiff. Looks like you would have to undo some of the laces/bands.

I had to sell a bunch a few years ago.

The stuff that didn't sell I got back. That's was kinda good, though the best stuff was gone.

I found at a garage sale a very dusty and fragile dress from the Victorian era. Because I'm a seamstress, I took the entire dress apart and made LOTS of notes and created a pattern from it.

I have to dress very modest and demure for my faith and the community that I live in. A good bullet bra that enhances my form is one of the ways that I can cheat on the dress code.

I will never understand that logic. Following a religion and then cheating the rules, because apparently god is too stupid to notice.

I love how the video shows the same outfits with a modern bra vs a bullet bra. Really can see the difference!
