Coins and small bills were kept in the purse. The bosom served as the "safe". She only dipped in the safe when she needed a larger bill. The theory was that if her purse were snatched they wouldn't get the "big money" and that no one would dare bother her bosom (and no one ever did!

Keeping money in a bra (between the breast and the actual bra) is very common in South Africa.
No-one bats an eye when a lady plunges her hand down into the depths to retrieve either notes or the whole wallet.
As most breasts are voluptuous to say the least, it makes it very hard to loose your cash to a mugger!

I just can't bare to think of putting that "filthy luca" (and money must be one of the most germ infected items handled everyday) against my body.

"And - getting the money out would seem to provide on-lookers with some interesting opportunities."

Like starrsville already said, you also have a purse with lesser amount of money, you donīt dig into your bra. When good old USSR still existed I travelled there quite a bit. The amount of money that could be legally taken into the country was very small. They wanted that tourists exchange money IN the country so they get currency, but the exhange rate was 10x worse than while exhanging outside the borders.. Everything had to be reported at the border, and every single bag was throughly searched.

I always had money stacked into my bra. But I admit, sometimes I had some extra sweat at the border.

Bra is a way nicer way than shoes. Less smelly.

But USSR was the only country where I have done it.

The bra lining is an old trick, but I have never had velcro installed. The other day at the street market in Málaga I bought 5 pairs of underwear, all of which have a small pocket right at the back that will fit a credit card or some cash. The problem is if they give me back change.

When I go out wearing a dress and I don't want to be bothered by a purse while dancing, I've more than often put money in my bra. The only problem is change... It works better if you can buy drink tickets, because then you only have to put the tickets in your bra

I actually searched the internet and found a bra pouch - a small, washable pouch, big enough for a passport, with a small zipper on the top, and a velcro attachment that goes around the bra strap. The pouch itself fits between the breast and the bra, and the velcro strap keeps it there. That removes the sweat factor, and allows for washing.

I used it in Ireland, with no problems.

I remember a renaissance fair when I was a little girl. My younger sister and I went to buy some orange ices, and the proprietess took our money and stuffed it down her very ample cleavage. As our mother was a proper type of woman with an average-sized bust, my sister and I were totally shocked. When walking away, my sister asked me, "Why did she do that?" I replied that I didn't know. After relating this story several decades later to one of my friends, I finally got the answer to my sister's question: Because she CAN.

I'm still laughing at the thought of putting change in a bra...

I think it would be easier (and more comfortable) to sew security pockets into the interior of some of your clothes. I know people do that, or take them to their tailor, and have an extra pocket with velcro closures or zipper added to the inside of their pants along the waistline.

Sorry didn't mean to be a wet blanket on this funny thread
;-)

but it just doesn't seem real practical to me. unless maybe it's to stash an extra $100 bill for emergencies. remember to remove before washing!

Here's a funny story...

I sell my art at art shows, and am usually the only one there (no help for bathroom breaks or lunch). Therefore, when I went to get lunch at one art show last April, I tucked the $2 change in my bra, so I had both hands available to carry back lunch and drink.

Later that night, having dinner with my DH and parents, I was gesticulating and placed my hand on my chest, emphasizing some point... and it crackled. I put my hand in, looking for what it was, having completely forgotten about the money. And lo and behold, out comes money! I had such a startled look on my face!

My husband asked if I could do that again.

I worked at a bank in the south, it never failed every day we had some large breasted woman come in to pay on a loan and she'd dig out money from her bra. Imagine that in August in the humidity....

So what do you recommend for guys? Padding a pair of briefs? <wink>

starrsville- =D>

I will admit that when I first travelled to Russia, I was so afraid that I wouldn't be able to keep any rubles as souvenirs that I put a few into my bra.

That would be paper money, though!

Would the TSA arrest me if I put a tube of lip gloss in my bra (and maybe a tiny bottle of contact solution to balance out the other side)?

Missypie, I was considering doing the exact same thing for my upcoming trip! Thankfully the lip balm ban is over. I guess that means the contact lens case will have to go between the, um, twin peaks. hehehe

We were in Equador many years ago and we were told that mugging was common especially at dusk so take extra care with cash and passports.

Well not having heard about the stuffed bra idea my BF shoved our cash and passports! in his socks and were walking down a hill when we heard a friends' voice ... "If any muggers are interested in passports that man has a square ankle!" ROTFL

When I was little and first started wearing a bra (about the age of 9 or 10--I'm italian, we develop young!), I would stash a few dollars in there. I always used to see the women do this in old movies and I thought it was glamorous. Picture little 10 year old mean pulling dollar bills out of her bra at the ice cream truck.
