Invention of the sports bra

by John Roberts on September 14, 2017

Today in 1993, two women inventors received a patent for a protective and supportive brassiere, otherwise known as a sports bra. Their idea developed during a conversation on the fact that there were many male inventors but not enough inventions for women. After discussing what they would invent for women, inventors Sheryl C. Unsworth and May N. Moy Au recognized that female joggers needed more support while exercising. Their invention includes rubber-covered plastic cups with air holes that provide ventilation and shock absorption.
