This ancient bra is thought to be the first push-up bra and was recently discovered in storage of the Science Museum in London. The bra dates from 1800 and will be displayed in the museum for the first time next Wednesday. The museum thinks of body enhancement as a modern invention. The pads were designed to boost the cleavage like a modern push-up bra, made famous in the 1990s by the Wonderbra "Hello Boys" ads featuring model Eva Herzigova.
