OK girls. This is an emergency. Open your shirt and give your bra to us. Do you need emergency bra? Hehehehehe.... Don't get it wrong guys. Yes, if you're wondering, that red thing on that women is a bra. This maybe sound like a jokes to someone but not for Dr. Elena Bodnar. Born in Ukraine, Bodnar said she was inspired by the Chernobyl nuclear accident and by photographs of 9/11 victims running through the ash with rags over their faces to come up with such a personal protective device.
"It's called the Emergency Bra and you now can buy one for $29.95 at ebbra.com," said its inventor, Dr. Elena Bodnar.
"We're just starting and there already is a huge interest," Bodnar told the Daily News.
"Right now it's available just in B and C cup sizes and just in what I call 'original red'," she said. "But in two months, we will be selling it in classic black and white as well."
"I thought evacuating would be easier if people had a readilly available face mask," she said.
So Bodnar went to work and unveiled her prototype - in hot pink - last year at Harvard University. It won her an Ig Nobel prize (not the real nobel prize), which recognizes seemingly ridiculous research that's actually useful. Bodnar, whose day job is director of the Trauma Risk Management Research Institute in Chicago, said she's also working on something for the gents, a dress shirt that converts into a rescue device.

Do we really need this emergency bra? How about the hygiene? You don't need to wash that thing, just put it on your face? Most guy will probably like this. Hehehehehe.... But I do think this is a good invention. We don't know when something like 9/11 attack happens. In case of emergency, I think we will forget about hygiene since saving our life more important then asking "do you wash that?". Hahahahaha.... But I also think its is a little bit expensive for a bra. I don't think everyone will be using this bra everyday. Unless when you need to go to war.
Anyone want to buy this emergency bra?
