A new exhibition at the Liverpool Academy of Art promises an uplifting experience as it celebrates the centenary of the invention of the bra. A collection of bras donated by members of the public and celebrities will be on show.

The exhibition, called Bravo!, aims to raise money for The Lily Centre, a breast cancer support organisation. It will be open to the public from Monday and all proceeds go to charity.

The display charts the history of the bra and its various incarnations through the ages and how it reflects the changing fashions.

June Lornie, from Liverpool Academy of Arts, said: "We decided to collect bras for the exhibition - so I've been asking everyone I see 'have you got any bras?' sometimes they think I've gone a bit mental - and perhaps I have! But we've had loads of people coming in and donating them."
