Do you ever shop for lingerie and find yourself thinking about Ruth Bader Ginsburg?
I don’t, either.
I guess the folks over at the bra company Harper Wilde think we do, though, and have created a bra to celebrate their bosom buddy RBG- Supreme Court justice and titular head of the women’s movement.
Here they are sharing the bra on Instagram with a little bit about the meaning behind it.

“When I'm sometimes asked when will there be enough [women on the Supreme Court] and I say, '𝐖𝐡𝐞𝐧 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐫𝐞 𝐚𝐫𝐞 𝐧𝐢𝐧𝐞,' people are shocked. But there'd been nine men, and nobody's ever raised a question about that.” -Ruth Bader Ginsburg Only TWO days left of our The Base: Notorious RBG edition. This limited-run, embroidered bra as a daily reminder of what we can achieve. 5% of all sales go to @sheshouldrun , a nonpartisan nonprofit promoting leadership and encouraging women from all walks of life to run for office.
I would hope that Supreme Court justices would be chosen for their knowledge of and love for the Constitution rather than their body parts (also, somebody should tell RBG that gender isn’t a thing anymore, right?), skin color, sexual orientation, or any other irrelevant factor. It comes as no surprise at all that those on the left disagree. They don’t particularly like hanging with original intent.
Let’s talk about all the good this bra will do. 5% of proceeds will go to support She Should Run, an organization that helps women run for office (for comparison, they donated 50% of the proceeds from their abortion bra). The other 95%, presumably, will go to Harper Wilde. For the purposes of capitalism. Do they think we’re a bunch of uneducated boobs who won’t notice that?
Hopefully the bra is more supportive of women than they are.
