I saw my travel guru friend Donna use one of these years ago during a trip we took together to Egypt. Foolishly, I assumed that when I was ready to buy one, they’d be easy to find. Not so.
After looking in the travel section of nearly every mainstream store, by the waist pouches, space bags and luggage tags, and reviewing a few travel specific web sites and gear stores as well, I finally found one at Amazon.Com .
While I won’t actually be using it until we hit the road, I’m relieved to have this little item crossed off my list. It doesn’t tend to be as noticeable to your basic street mugger, because you tuck it into the side section of your bra and hook the strap(s) around the corresponding shoulder strap. My friend always kept a decent supply of extra cash there that she never used. That way, if she got mugged and robbed of everything else, she had enough to see her through until everything important got replaced . . . traveler’s checks, ID, etc.
I’ve always felt that I’d feel more secure if I had one, but could never find one for sale until now. If there are any female road warriors out there with a bra safe story to tell, please feel free to share. I’d love to hear your comments.
