Wonder as 1 000-year-old padded bra dug up

Hong Kong - Archaeologists have dug up a thousand-year-old padded bra in Inner Mongolia, China, a news report said on Thursday.

The gold-coloured bra was found in tomb in the province's Aohan region, according to the South China Morning Post.

Archeologist Shao Guotian said the bra dated back to China's Liao dynasty and described it as made of fine silk with shoulder and back straps.

"It is just like brassieres of today," he said. "It's a pity most of the cotton padding in the cups has already decayed." - Sapa-dpa
