Considers the common factor between brassieres, bridges and car suspension: they all employ damping mechanisms to cancel unwanted movement. Building any of these artefacts requires an understanding of wavelengths, vibration, noise and thermodynamics. Finally, considers what could be achieved in brassiere design if the latest computer technology used to construct car suspension were brought to bear on it.
