You won't see the "Bling-Bra-Zing," "Sophisticated Girls" and "Boob Tube" bras in Victoria's Secret, but you can find them on display at a North Texas hospital.
The three specially designed bras are among 10 creative brassieres that will be auctioned to boost funds for Baylor Medical Center at Irving Cancer Center's breast cancer support services.
The call for submissions went out in early October to breast cancer survivors, clinical staff, patients and visitors. The results are a display of unlimited imagination, said Jo Darling, an oncology nurse manager.
"The only criteria that I had was that they needed to hang on a hanger," Darling said. "The boob tube really surprised me -- to have two TVs in a bra, I didn't think it was possible."
The Irving Healthcare Foundation will host an online auction where people can buy the decorated bras early next year.
