WTF Moments in Fashion Tech History: Inflatable Bras Edition

It may be hard to believe but during the 50s and 60s blow-up bras were manufactured and sold to the mass market by Frederick's of Hollywood ("make the most of you") and Très Secrète ("the most inspired of the sweet feminine deceptions").

"D cup comes party time. Caliente mamacita!"
