    PORTLAND, OR -- The TSA says it's investigating an incident where a 90-year-old woman was forced to strip after setting off body scanners. Alan Charney told ABC affiliate KATU-TV that his mother Harriette went through the full body scanner at Portland International Airport when the alarm went off. TSA agents quickly pulled her aside. "It was obvious they were going into a search," Charney said. "But I presumed they were just going to sort of pat her down."

    A “first lady” bra inspired by Michelle Obama is “flying out of” a Washington lingerie store. The owner of Coup de Foudre Lingerie in the nation’s capital says that according to the bra’s Belgian manufacturer, PrimaDonna, the intimate apparel was “inspired by [Michelle Obama’s] sense of elegance and fashion.” Kiersten Ballman, whose store has outfitted women in the District for the last 10 years, describes the royal blue, $146 bra as having a “specialized cup for fuller-busted women.” After getting a shipment of more than 15 of the bras to her shop on Thursday, Ballman says she’s down to a...

    600-year-old bra and underwear discovered in an Austrian castle Contemporary bras are more comfortable, modified versions of corsets — or so it was believed, until a 2007 discovery changed the way we see women's underwear. Working with a team of her colleagues, archaeologist Beatrix Nutz recently publicized her discovery of several linen bras and some underwear in a medieval castle. Nutz has presented academic papers about her discovery, and even analyzed the underwear for DNA (see picture). But the public didn't hear about the medieval bras until a BBC history program showed pictures of them. Nutz and colleagues also found...

They had no idea that she had the monkey — a female named “Kara” — until she went into an office to fill...

    A hardline Islamist group in Somalia has begun publicly whipping women for wearing bras that they claim violate Islam as they are 'deceptive'.

The women are then inspected to see if the firmness is natural, or if it is the result of wearing a bra. If they are found wearing , they are ordered to remove it and shake their breasts, residents said. Al Shabaab, which seeks to impose a strict interpretation...
