2013 Fantasy bra by Victoria’s Secret

Victoria’s Secret is at it again.
This year’s Fantasy Bra is a trim little $10 million number that features a 52-carat ruby. It will be worn with a matching belt in the finale of the Victoria’s Secret fashion show on CBS December 10. The 2013 VSFB is worth four times more than last year’s, but $5 million less than the Guinness Book record-holder, which in 2000 contained the breasts of mega-model Gisele Bundchen. Breasts are a Victoria’s Secret stock-in-trade, of course, and arguably the principal reason why 9 million people or so watch the annual fashion show on TV. It is worth noting that bra-clad breasts were not allowed on television at all until 1987. Progress or the decline of civilization?
