The Swiss armed forces is taking a big step to recruit more women – by no longer making female recruits wear men’s underwear.
At present, all recruits are issued with “loose-fitting men’s underwear, often in larger sizes”, the BBC reported. In a trial set to begin in April, the Swiss army said women would be issued with two sets of female underwear – one for warmer months and one for colder months.
The Swiss armed forces hope to increase the percentage of female recruits from 1% to 10% within the next decade.
Each pair is expected to get 6 months use a year?
No wonder the Guards wear such baggy pantaloons.
