London, April 23 (ANI): A 200-year-old lacy boob enhancer, which is thought to be the world's oldest push-up bra, was recently discovered in storage at the Science Museum in London.

The pads were designed to boost the cleavage like a modern Wonderbra, made famous by the 1990s "Hello Boys" ads featuring model Eva Herzigova.

The bra, dating from the 1800s, will go on show for the first time next Wednesday.

"We think of body enhancement as a modern invention," the Sun quoted the museum's assistant curator Selina Hurley as saying.

"But this object shows that women have been looking to boost their cleavage for hundreds of years.

"This bust enhancer is one-of-a-kind in our collection," she added. (ANI)
