U.S. Army is Testing a Tactical Bra to Give Female Soldiers More Protection


The Army’s efforts to provide women with better fitting uniforms and protective equipment now includes testing prototypes for a more functional brassiere for women to wear with their body armor and other combat gear, Army officials said.

The military testing tactical undies for its troops is nothing new; it often tests new uniforms and gear that are meant to save troops’ lives. When roadside bombs became the scourge of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, military officials tested tactical undergarments meant to protect male soldiers from castration and death.

The Army is working to make sure the undergarment works well with other equipment and body armor, and that it provides soldiers with added protection. For example, Army officials are testing fire-resistant fabrics to keep female soldiers safe.
