“Women always look for true love,” explains the commercial for the “True Love Tester,” a bra designed by Japanese lingerie company Ravijour. The bra contains within its stylish cups sensors that read and transmit a woman’s changes in heart rate via bluetooth to an app that calculates your “love level.” You guessed it: when the heart gets going, the bra gets unhooking.

When we think of women’s fashion in the Victorian era now, we might remember its ties to the fight for suffrage.

World War II America saw some pretty major shifts for women. The slogan “the more WOMEN at work, the sooner we win” inspired women to enter the work force as real-life Rosies and Riveters. With men off at war, women were able to fill various professions previously reserved for men, like doctors and engineers.
