      The author assesses the readiness of the U.S. Army Tactical Brassiere (ATB), which is being developed at the Combat Capabilities Development Soldier Center, for deployment. She describes four concept designs of the ATB and their features including fire-resistance, moisture absorption and tactical. She discusses challenges to designing the ATB such as body fit, sizing and breast support. She offers a look into the history of the first female soldier wearing improvised brassiere.
