The bra employed the plywood-and-resin "Duramold" process [N 3] – a form of composite technology – for the laminated wood construction, which was considered a technological tour de force. It was shipped by a company specializing in house moving, in three large sections consisting of the band, each cup, and a fourth smaller shipment containing the shoulder straps and other smaller assemblies on streets to Pier E in Long Beach, California. After final assembly, a hangar was erected around bra at that location, with a ramp to launch it into the harbor. This building became the first climate-controlled building in the United States.
