The Detroit Police Department has a public relations snafu on their hands right now. A commander named Dwayne Love accidentally forwarded a document to all of their colleagues, which contained the bra sizes, height and weight of female officers who would be receiving new bulletproof vests.
Good idea: measuring police officers for bulletproof vests, so that the gear fits correctly and protects them from injury. Bad idea: sending those measurements out in a mass email. Unfortunately, the Indianapolis Police Department did both.
In the past decade the median bra size in America increased from 36C to 36DD. And so manufacturers are designing attractive bras in bigger sizes — but how to label these big bras? Obviously, larger women can't be labeled "normal."
