Listen up, ladies!

A new bra has hit the market to help you better protect yourself.

It's called the 'Booby Trap Bra' line and they look much like sports bras, but with a small front pocket for easy access to either a built-in knife or pepper spray at a moment's notice.

Jennifer Cutrona created the bra design after she was jogging on a trail near her home in Texas last April.

That's when a man jumped out and tried to grab her.

Cutrona was defenseless, as her pocket knife and pepper spray were at home.

She was able to get away, and the very next day she developed the prototype to her patented line of self-defense bras.

The 'Just in Case Knife Bra' sells for $55, while the custom-fit knife insert is sold separately for $13.

Another version of the bra is the 'Just in Case Pepper Spray Bra,' which sells for $50, while the pepper spray sells separately for $12.

Cutrona also created a compression arm sleeve for both men and women that can also hold a knife, as well as anything from a phone to credit cards

It sells for $25.
Cutrona's dangerous encounter has made her a firm believer in preparing for the worst.

She told WTVR about her new bra business, "It  had to happen for me to move forward. I was excited that I got away, but I know a lot of women aren't that lucky."
