Urban farming is really taking off in Japan. But that is now being taken to the extreme. Growing rice in bra cups -- while wearing them. The cups are filled with soil and rice seedlings which are watered by the wearer with a small hose. I guess because land is so valuable in the cities, they are trying to find anywhere they can to grow rice. According to the maker of the bra, Triumph Lingerie, "Over the last year, young Japanese women have taken a tremendous interest in agriculture," Triumph spokeswoman Yoshiko Masuda told Reuters. "We wanted other women to experience farming as well."
That is certainly an interesting way to let Japanese women experience agriculture. I would be a little scared of what kind of farming underwear they might make for men. Hmmm, let me think. No, I better not say. :)
Triumph also makes bras with a sushi set (yummy) and one that has solar panels. According to bra model model Reiko Aoyama "The bra fits much better than it looks. Wearing it puts me in such a fun mood." I can only imagine.
