New police body armour designed for officers with moobs
The new protective wear has been designed to be form fitting, following complaints from female officers that existing stab vests are uncomfortable to wear, particularly for officers with larger boobs.
Female officers have long been warned not to wear push up bras as it was feared the wire from underwired bras could injure the officers if they’re attacked. Female officers with breast implants were thought to be at more risk, as implants could rupture if they were to be stabbed.
This new armour is designed to allow women to wear push up bras under their uniform, providing support for larger breasts – whether artificially enhanced or not.
However, the new vests will also be available to male officers with male breasts, often referred to as moobs.
That means the body armour will not be labelled male and female, but will be labelled “formed” and “unformed”, to allow male officers with moobs to select body armour with room for their moobs.
There is, though, and easier way to avoid the problem of having moobs stuck in uncomfortable body armour – a male breast reduction, which is available at Belvedere Clinic.
