Japanese Bizarre Brassiere

09 Nov


Now that’s what I call drinking out of your own cups. . . . . . oops I mean bowls.

In an effort to go green(er) after their release of the shopping bag bra, Triumph International Japan has brought “inner beauty” and “eco-friendly” to the next level . Newly launched, “My Chopsticks Bra” aims to promote the use of reusable chopsticks.

Statistically, Japan holds a whopping figure of 25 billion pairs of disposable chopsticks going up in flames every year. My Chopsticks Bra was developed in a bid to cast off the “use-and-throw-away” concept and promote the use of “reusable everything”. Yuko Ishida was the kawaii diner chosen of the bra.











The garment’s concept is themed Japanese dinning with a rice and miso bowl as the brassiere’s cups. The contractible chopsticks comes with holsters at the side of the cups which boosts the peak to an all time high.

Amusingly interesting; but I find it pretty useless for the same reason of its actualization. As much as I’d like to go green (which is not much really), using plastic as cups of the bra isn’t that environmentally friendly either. (;´д`)!!

    You’re up at 7am, showered, put on your “My Chopsticks Bra”, blouse, skirt, etc…commute to work, arrive at work at 8:55am with a little perspiration. Start work at 9, air-conditioning has dried your clothings, nice and comfy…at noon you leave for a nearby eatery with your colleagues, on the way, the sun’s a lil sunny and you perspire a little. You get to the eatery, took a seat, ordered, food arrives and you slip your hands into your blouse from the front of your blouse and retrieves your chopsticks. Would you use the chopstick after perspiring in that pair of bra…

    I wonder if one can actually wear it and not see the plastic shape underneath the fabric of your clothes. So if it ain’t meant to be worn with something covering it, then how do you stroll into a restaurant, pick you your reusable chopsticks and gallantly start eating without being charged for walking around town displaying your undergarment in public?

    No CUPS was right .. there is hardly any breasts to warrant a compliment of BOWLS! ^^ Well, while the にほんじん ever try for the next level of wierd (gah, as in NHK “entertainment” … seriously I hate TV here) this tops this years “wierd clothing fashion” (and I thought I was laughing over the poofy skirt phase going on) — this did provide laughs and “tsk tsk”s — and Im sure someone will get this as a “gag gift” or “requirement-ware” for Xmas. The photos were a bit TMI, IMHO, but your article was a fun read ^-^
