Police Bra

In Germany, law enforcement takes a shot at women's wear. 3,000 female police officers will sport the hot new bullet-proof brassiere-practical intimate apparel with Polizei along the seams, bringing the season's bullet-proof trend to a new level.

Apparently there's some safety concern in your typical underwire conflicting with bullet-proof vest outerwear in the event of being struck by a projectile. The underwire issue isn't the first red flag that comes to mind when we think of being shot in the chest, but luckily, the Deutsche are on the mark.
