Years ago, back in the previous century, The Slice column hosted a lively discussion about underwire bras and airport metal detectors.
But I haven't heard much about that lately. Here are my theories.
1. It's because we are now subjected to whole-body scans.
2. Brassieres no longer incorporate heavy metal trusses.
3. People no longer feel that they can be seen as making light of any aspect of airport security theater.
Or perhaps it's something else altogether..
