The star who played Piper Halliwell in the WB series Charmed, Holly Marie Combs, appeared on a panel at the 90s Con on Saturday, where she mentioned that she was suggested to wear a push up bra during her time in Charmed and wasn’t given an alternative.
In the popular 1998-2006 TV series about 3 sisters who discovered they were witches, Combs was asked to wear a big, padded push-up bra, which she refused.
The 48-year-old actress mentions that they “tried to be gentle about it, but … the messages would come down through the ranks. And then there would be, you know, that unfortunate person who had to deliver the message to you.”
This became the reason why there were so many scenes of her not wearing any bra, which she apologised for, but she claimed it was important for her at the time.
When Christy Carlson Romano, the host of the Con, asked if she was given an alternative, she said that there were none. To add to the tea, she pointed out that her co-workers were not given this same request.
