hmmm...they went back and forth. Probably realized that it is a bone-headed move to ban them. Imagine hundreds of women having to take their bras off at the airport ;)
"The TSA is saying tonight if you wear a gel bar for prosthetic purposes they will be allowed through security and on planes, but if you were them for cosmetic reasons you'll have to pack them in a checked luggage. "
On Thursday, KBCI CBS 2 News learned from TSA that the rule had changed.Now, all bras are allowed on all flights.The TSA website reflects that change.The lines "for medial reasons," and "we encourage everyone to pack gel-filled bras in checked baggage," are gone."
