Booby Trapped: The Bra in America with Ehris Urban and Velya Janez-Urban on Zoom co-hosted with Eastham Public Library Corrected date: Tuesday, MAY 25, 7:00 p.m.
In honor of women’s history month, join us for an uplifting virtual presentation of the history of the brassiere in America. Presented by the charming mother-daughter duo, Ehris Urban and Velya Jancz-Urban, their presentation will trace the path of the bra in American herstory, from corsets (which lifted breasts to artificial heights by pushing from below instead of lifting from above) to the 1913 invention of the first modern bra by socialite Mary Phelps Jacob (using two pocket handkerchiefs and some pink ribbon), to the bullet bra of the 40s, to modern-day pillow cup push-up plunge bras. This presentation illustrates how women’s bodies have been cinched, flattened down, and lifted up over the last century. According to Ehris and Velya, “You can discover a lot about women in history by how much cleavage was showing, and the era’s ideal breast shape.” It’s sure to be a good time, so please save the date and the zoom link in your calendar. No registration is necessary. A zoom link will be posted soon from our calendar listing.
