According to USA Today, those who lent the artifacts were then told they had to pay $250 plus shipping for their return. But this week, Chastain got her famous bra back.
"It’s arrived!!!!" Chastain wrote in a text message, attaching a picture of the bra seen ’round the world. "Here she is."
According to USA Today, with the help of a lawyer, Chastain didn’t have to pay for its safe return (she thinks) and was never really aware of its location after the museum closed
The cross-country process to free her bra was accomplished with numerous phone calls and e-mails. Recently, she sent those handling its return an e-mail explaining why it was important to get the sports bra back at this time. It’s the 10th anniversary of 1999 World Cup, which Chastain won with the game-clinching penalty kick and subsequent shirt-shedding celebration.
