The mother of a 16-year-old girl who has been wearing a bra for more than 10 years has described the experience as a “new normal” in her home.
Read moreAlicia Garcia was working on a house renovation in the southern city of Santiago when she came across the incident and was inspired by the young girl’s bravery, the mother told El País newspaper.
“She wore a bra every day for almost a year,” she said.
“I was like: ‘This is so different from what I expected from my daughter.
I think the day this happens I will never see her again.'”
Garcia said she hoped the incident would inspire others to embrace their bodies.
“It’s important that we are more aware of what is going on around us and to look into the issues that we face every day,” she added.
