Talking about bras

S: Can you think of any everyday textile items of special significance to you?

J: Well, I thought of bras, I suppose because of my changing body and the different bras I need. And also restriction of price because they are very expensive to buy, so the bras I used to buy are different from the bras I buy now.
When I first had a bra, they were very different, very sort of restrictive things, they were stitched in such a way that your breasts got turned into cones, like on Star Track type TV shows, asexual bloody things, weren’t they, and thick straps, always white, they were never very pretty.

From a conversation with J. (UK 2006)
