Rosie the Riveter’s safety bra (1943)

“2 women modeling safety garb to prevent future occupational accidents among female war workers; woman on (L) wearing uniform & plastic eye goggles & woman on (R) opening her uniform to reveal plastic bra.” Los Angeles, 1943

I dig the plastic bra, of course, but how about those functional and fabulous saftey hats! Beats the hell out of some lame baseball hat.

Hubba hubba, this is the woman of my dreams!
