If you’re familiar with fashion from the 1940s and 50s then you may already be familiar with the bullet bra. If not, you may be thinking that it’s some sort of weaponized fashion piece. While it is quite sharp looking, the bullet bra is not a weapon, it is actually a popular fashion trend from the ‘50s.

It involved wearing a cone shaped bra, usually with a sweater over top and they were made famous by ‘the sweater girls’ which were various Hollywood actresses who adopted this style into their fashion.

Madonna even took part in this trend wearing one designed by Jean Paul Gaultier during her Blond Ambition Tour in 1990.
