Brassieres of the Ancient Vikings!

by wjw on March 5, 2008

According to the Scotsman, a recent archaeological dig has turned up evidence that Viking women wore metal brassieres. Apparently this ingenious technological advance was suppressed for a millennium or so by the Church.
Archaeologist Annika Larsson sez: “The garments had an aesthetic lingerie effect as well as providing support. I think Viking women would have chatted about clothing styles and designs in simple fashion shows while their men were away marauding.”
An argument for the historical existence of the chainmail bikini! As a lad raised on the pulps, I can only give Ms Larsson two big thumbs up!

Metal lingerie in a Scandinavian winter, eh? Ouch!

“Cerebus thinks these will heal if you stop wearing chain mail bikinis.”

I felt like jumping up and down saying, “I knew it! I knew it!”

Probably chainmail was attached to pieces of leather…

And what we’ll do, gentelmens, to protect our “naughty bits”? 🙂
