Very Uplifting

Two Months after the Fukushima-Daichi Nuclear disaster, there is now something to uplift spirits and create hope...The Japanese lingerie maker Triumph has created a bra that carries messages of encouragement from overseas, such as "Japan, with you 100%" from France, along with many others, including a few alluding to the Chernobyl disaster in the USSR (Now known as Ukraine) in 1986. Accompanying each message is a tiny flag from each country; but alas, it is not for sale. Previous efforts from the company have included a solar-powered bra and a "Welcome to Japan" bra, which featured greetings in three different languages. For those of you who want to read more about this interestingly designed bustier...

  1. I think they should market this to tweens and they would make a profit. Slap on Hello kitty and they could make a killing if they tried.

  2. It would, and then the news stories about how they are marketing a bra to girls who might not need it yet. The sexualization of young children they might claim. I think it would market pretty well nonetheless.
