Gel-filled bras are now on the TSA web site’s list of items permitted on board to "ensure the health and welfare of certain air travelers." The bras are on the same list as various prescription and non-prescription drugs, life support liquids and baby formula. However, all other liquids, gels, lotions and other items of similar consistency are still prohibited on board.  Additionally, liquids, gels and lotions purchased beyond the checkpoint are to be disposed of before boarding the aircraft.
