(AP) VIENNA - A revolutionary discovery is rewriting the history of underwear: Some 600 years ago, women wore bras. The University of Innsbruck said Wednesday that archaeologists found four linen bras dating from the Middle Ages in an Austrian castle. Fashion experts describe the find as surprising because the bra had commonly been thought to be only little more than 100 years old as women abandoned the tight corset.

I never knew that women wore bra's at that time in history. It looks so much like the ones we wear today. Instead of being a new invention I guess they actually just came back in style. Is this a surprise to you?
