In the South Island of New Zealand, there is a fence at the famous Bra Fence (underwear wall) in Cardrona. The fence is covered with tens of thousands of women's underwear. The wall is between Queenstown and Wanaka. There are two roads in the basin, one is Highway 6, which passes through Cromwell, the fruit city, which takes about 1.5 hours, and the other is Crown Ridge Road. It takes about 1 hour by car.
In 1999, four women hung their bra on the barbed wire on the side of the road on a whim. Later, many people saw it and hung it up, so more and more bras became the current bra wall. Someone couldn't bear to steal, and all the bra disappeared overnight. But no one thought that it was because of "stealing" bra that the underwear wall began to be officially famous. Every time the underwear on the fence is stolen → media reports → increased attention → usher in more underwear being put on.
By the end of 2000, the number of bras had increased to 200, and then they were emptied again. This time the story spread more widely, and the fence attracted foreign media attention, and finally transformed into a world-class tourist attraction. The number of people going to the fence to hang bras in person or by sending people has increased significantly. At the beginning of 2006, the number of bras was close to 800. Coupled with the help of social media, it has become a veritable Internet celebrity "spot".
Starting in 2015, a charity project named Bradrona was launched to raise donations for breast cancer charity organizations.
As a result, a donation box with a pink bow logo was placed on the side of the underwear wall, and on the first day, it received nearly 200 dollars in donations.
In fact, in 2006, the local council believed that this place could not be regarded as a formal attraction, and that it would cause traffic problems and be unsightly, so it ordered the local area to be removed as soon as possible! Unexpectedly, many residents and tourists stood up to protect the fence, hoping that the authorities would not remove this interesting attraction. Later, the opposition was successful, and the bra wall has been successfully preserved to this day.
The women who come here will take off their underwear from their bodies and hang them on the wire fence. They think that wearing the hood all the year round binds the body and will get some diseases. They come here and want to free themselves and liberate their bodies. Call for the prevention and treatment of breast cancer and care for women.
But I'm not so courageous anymore. I just came to visit and didn't dare to let myself go like this.
