The Evolution of Bras in Pop Culture

It may seem like women have been wearing bras since the dawn of time, what with the added support they provide, but this isn’t true. Even though the first flax bra was discovered in a medieval castle more than 600 years ago, the first true bra as we know it was invented in 1859 by Henry Lesher but this was only a prototype and never took off.

The Early Bras

When 1930 rolled around, a woman named Mary Phelps Jacob created the first bra worn by women (Source: “The History of the Bra,” LulaLu Blog).

Why Baby Walkers Are Dangerous

What makes mobile walkers dangerous? Experts say their very design helps kids move easily – often much too easily for them to sustain serious injuries.

“About three million baby walkers are sold in the United States each year. They are generally used in the 2- to 4-month period after a child can sit up and before he can walk without assistance. But by giving a child added height, a walker suddenly brings him within reach of hazards such as boiling pots, electric irons and unprotected electrical cords. And kids in walkers travel so fast – three or four feet a second – that even the most attentive parents may not be able to avert disaster,” said Diana Willensky in American Health magazine.
