Your grandmother and mother did it, and perhaps your wife and sister do it too. A woman’s bra is one of the safest depositories for valuables, and in April of this year, a woman in the northeast Brazilian city of Salvador was saved from death by a wad of cash she had stuffed in her bra.
When two gunmen held up the bus she was on, 58 -year-old Ivonete Pereira de Oliverira became the victim of a stray bullet. Although the bullet did pierce her breast, the cache of cash slowed it enough to keep it from entering her heart. She underwent surgery to have the bullet removed and was released from the hospital. News reports stated that it was 150 reals, or about 70$.
