Celebrate The Bra’s Anniversary With The 30 Hardest Working Bras in Hollywood [Photos]

Let’s take some time today to stop what we’re doing and honor the brassiere, which turns 99 years old today.

Although there were bras before November 2, 1914, that was the day that the U.S. Patent Office awarded the first patent for a brassiere to Mary Phelps Jacob, a New York City socialite. In 1910 Mary Phelps Jacob had to attend a debutante ball but didn’t want to wear the uncomfortable whalebone corset that was common for women at the time. In a true moment of inspiration, she got a maid to help her tie two silk handkerchiefs together with pink ribbons and fashioned a makeshift bra. Other women at the party were impressed and asked if she could make some for them. From that moment on, she knew she had a profitable idea.

After Mary Phelps Jacob got the patent, she began making and selling bras on a small scale. After a few years of turning a small profit, Mary Phelps Jacob’s husband made her sell the patent to Warners Brothers Corset Company for $1,500. The company went on to make over $15 million off of the patent.

Unlike Jacob’s husband, we appreciate bras and all that they do. To celebrate this day, we figured we’d find pictures of Hollywood stars in the most need of the brassiere’s support.

      CO-ED, you guys really suck lately. Katie Price? First, she's never been anywhere near Hollywood, second, she's fugly, and third, "before she got them reduced" ? Even after her "reduction" they're still bigger than they were before her first augmentation…

      Also, there's no such thing as DDD. That's an E cup.

      P.S. What's with the new style galleries? They're sh*t. Fix it please. Cheers.

        Hey Captain C*m-rag, go f*ck yourself. There is such a thing as DDD in the U.S., you jackass. Do some research before you write a sh*tty comment. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brassiere_measuremen… . According to boobpedia, she's a 32-D after her reduction, which places her below the others. We're not fixing a gallery because one loser complains, so piss off.

      2. Ingeborg says:

        Oh, c'mon, you trust Boobpedia? Seriously? Thats sweet, they include information about their pubic hair, do you think it's trustworthy enough and they update it when she wants to grow them? Well, in her case it may be truth, but I would rather say it's E or F. And look at the gallery. Do you really believe that Vergara and Simpson have the same size?

      3. We use "Hollywood" to mean "celebrity". There IS such a thing as DDD, look it up – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brassiere_measuremen…. The new galleries rock. Suck it.

      Are you kidding me? Those bra sizes are sooo different, and almost all of them are far beyond D. Or even DD. I would say that with Sophia Vergara may have I or J. Seriously, you guys are such ignorants about bras. There is nothing wrong about it, you are not the ones who wear bra, but for a fucks sake, if you want to name the sizes, do it correctly! And btw: D is a size that most of you would describe as bigger average. From all those girls maybe Jessica Simpson and Jennifer Connely have real D. Seriously, alphabet doesnt end with D.
