Bras made of dead hedgehog skins, human hair, old telephones and a typewriter are just some of the kooky creations compiled in a new book.

Bizarre Bras - the book - pulls together a bunch of the best entries from the category of the same name at the NZ World of WearableArt shows.

Released today, the cute book of images includes the most "creative, outrageous and compelling" bras from over the years at the innovative Wellington fashion show. And it's all for a good cause - money raised from sales of the book go towards breast cancer research.
