A couple of times a year, Japan's Triumph International unveils a themed undergarment based on a current trend or issue. Bringing women closer to agriculture is the company's latest inspiration for crazy conceptual underwear, which takes form in the shape of the Rice Bra.
This year's first offering hopes to help focus young people's attention on the serious issue of agriculture, rice production in particular. Needless to say, there's nothing that will make youngsters sit up and take notice like a couple of bra cups that come together to make a handy rice planter.
Behind each of the planters, bra pads roll out to double up as protection from the sun for the arms, while the straps feature sparkling decorations to dissuade pesky airborne pests from stealing your crop. The kit comes with a pair of "authentic" work shorts - fastened to the rear are removable work gloves emblazoned with symbols for harvest, and a water hose serves as a belt. A pouch of soil and seed starters are also included.
Before planting any seeds, though, a prospective farmer will need to remove the bra from the wearer. After that, all the benefits of the outdoor life can be enjoyed to the fullest.
Thank you Japan!
