No, this is no April fool! In Italian, bra, as in the form of undergarment, is reggiseno, so although the event made the news in Italy, the headline is nowhere near as much fun.
Does much bra trafficking go on in Bra, Italy? Who knows, but if a bra trafficking ring is ever uncovered, newspaper headlines in English speaking nations may lead a few readers to bust a few blood vessels in amusement, one is sure.
Stop reading, start speaking
Stop translating in your head and start speaking Italian for real with the only audio course that prompt you to speak.
By the way, how can one catch a bra thief? Easy, all you need is a booby trap! 😉
