Medieval Lingerie

A remarkably modern-looking bra and "string bikini" from the 15th century have been discovered in East Tyrol.

Hidden in the floorboards of the Lengberg Castle of Austria, the undergarments are thought to date from when the castle was extended in 1480.  Included in the almost 3,000 objects that were discovered are "four bras and two pairs of pants".  Radiocarbon-dating tests confirm the age of the garments.  (photos)
