Supporting women for six centuries.

These bras, discovered in a medieval castle in Austria, reveal that the undergarment may have been worn as far back as the 15th century.

Apart from the wear and tear, they look remarkably similar to their modern day versions.

They were spotted almost by accident when the floorboards of the castle were removed during renovation.

Những chiếc áo lót được phát hiện trong một tòa lâu đài thời trung cổ ở Áo cho thấy những đồ lót này có thể đã được mặc từ thế kỷ thứ 15.

Ngoài tình trạng cũ đi do qua sử dụng, trông chúng rất giống với kiểu dáng của đồ lót thời hiện đại.

Người ta gần như tình cờ phát hiện ra chúng khi sàn gỗ của lâu đài được tháo gỡ trong quá trình sửa sang lại.
