The bodice quickly caught on among the Pict women. Being very atheletic, active types, they quickly came to value the greater support the new armor offered.

The giant chickens gave a rough, bouncing ride and the development of the bodice made the ride much more comfortable for these buxom lasses. But as they rode along on the backs of the chickens, the two halves of the bodice tended to bounce against one another, making a knocking sound. A whole troup of female warriors galloping along on their chickens, was quite something to hear and see. It is thought the phrase 'Would you look at those knockers' originated from this period in Pict history.
