Carbon foam – lighter than helium, stronger than steel, perfect for padded bra armor

A Carbon wardrobe could hold a huge variety of garments and styles, just like yours. Not all wardrobes include padded bras, but for those that do:

Even using lots of connected layers, the carbon chain-mail protection layers of carbon armor would still be pretty thin and highly transparent. They would block and deflect damage from swords and knives, but another layer of hard but flexible carbon foam between layers of clothes would help to absorb energy from bullets too. Any areas where damage does occur can be swiftly repaired using a variety of self healing mechanisms.

For potential superheroes who feel they need a bit of extra padding up top, carbon foam feels comfortable, keeps the body cool, adds extra protection, and adds curves. It is lighter than helium, so it also gives a bit of extra lift.
