Chaque mois, Form@nglais et son partenaire Gymglish vous propose d’explorer un mot de la une, en anglais.
Ce mois-ci découvrons le mot anglais: « Bra« 


An undergarment designed to support breasts, from the French brassière.

Also: A subject as delicate as the material from which it’s made.

Bras in the news

October 13 marked « No Bra Day, » on which women go braless to raise awareness for breast cancer.

It’s one of the rare occasions that removing a bra doesn’t earn enough attention.

Keeping abreast of breasts

Bosoms. 12th-century term for breasts. More refined than “bazookas”.

Cleavage. The visible space between breasts. Attracting the male gaze for millennia.

Teat or Nipple. Protuberance providing milk. Your first and favorite watering hole. Banned on Instagram, but only for women.
