• Bras should be well constructed as they may be moved and mounted for display numerous times. Appliques and other applied objects should be firmly attached.

• Bras are to be constructed of materials that are not perfumed, soiled, perishable, or in any way inherently dangerous.

• Bras must be constructed in a manner that allows for displaying on a clothes line. No backing panels or plaques.

• Each entry must include a name tag with the designer’s or group’s name, contact information, and bra name. Name tags must be hung from the clasp of the bra. All designers are encouraged to include a short paragraph of 50 words or less describing your inspiration for the piece.
