Here’s a story about something that active and independent women fear. It’s a father’s worst nightmare. Yet, from a tragedy, an enterprising company is giving women a weapon they need. This will ensure the tragedy need not be repeated.
Britt D.B. wrote an inspirational fashion story for the Independent Journal Review. Please read her article on the booby trap bra, a unique article of clothing with a hidden purpose. It provides support in more than one way.

Thirty-year-old Karina Vetrano went out for her usual jog in metro New York. When she did not return her father’s phone calls, he called the police. Sadly, her father, a firefighter, was the one who found her body. She had been brutally murdered.
Following this terrible crime, a New York women runners and a Texas company developed a new line of security-based exercise apparel. They offer the “booby trap bra”. It is a sports bra “designed with a hidden pouch that can hold a knife, pepper spray or a stun gun.
“There are so many attackers out there right now and women feel helpless.”
-Unnamed mother of another jogger.
Women need not feel helpless anymore. In addition to their athletic bra, the company offers several similar garments and accessories. For those outside of NYC, I suppose the bra could accommodate a small pistol. There are similar articles that do.
In many cities, attackers continue to target women, jogging, walking, shopping, etc. Many women have been killed. And many attackers have gone unapprehended, like Karina’s. Her mother has blunt words for her unknown killer:
“Whoever you are, I’m here to remind you in case you don’t already know, that now it’s the whole entire world against you. The whole entire world knows what a pathetic, puny, weak piece of filth you are. The whole world knows that. And soon, I know, they’re all gonna know your face as well. Soon we’re gonna have a face to the d**kless piece of garbage that you are.”
The search for this useless killer continues. A $10,000 reward for information is offered. One hopes that justice finds this scumbag – maybe alone and somewhere dark where his screams and pleas go unnoticed.
In the meanwhile, women are protecting themselves. The Booty Trap Bra is one way. Please visit the company’s website for more product information: Booby Trap Bras.

If you’re a woman who values an independent lifestyle and who still values safety, this bra may be for you. Gentlemen, this item might make a perfect gift.
Stories like Karina’s are always sad. Her family needs justice. However, it is a blessing that something good came out of the incident. Perhaps this booby trap will save another woman. Let’s hope so.
