Swedish Combat Bra Under Development

This story come from a recent report by the Gothenburg Post and English-language Swedish journal The Local via the UK Register. Apparently, female members of the Swedish military must purchase their own brassieres. Their main concern is that the sports bras available are not FR and not designed for the rigors of combat. Instead, according to the article there are complaints that they unhook too easily.

Sweden still has National Service and inducts about 2000 women per year. Paulina Rehbinder a representative of the Council of Conscripts criticized the military for its lack of gender equality, in a country widely considered a pioneer in the field. In response to such concerns the Swedish military is developing a new combat bra that should enter service this Winter.
