This Wednesday, underwear manufacturer Triumph International’s Japan team held a product-release event for its bra that “reflects the times.” On display at the biannual event was the Branomics Bra, based on the Abenomics “Three Arrows” policy. Arisa Watanabe and ALISA, poster girls for the company, wore the bust-increasing garments, striking various poses for the attendees. (As far as we know, tickets to these events are not publicly available. Rats!)

The company has produced a number of unique bras over the years. Some of them have included the Yôkoso Bra, a bra to “guide travelers around Japan’s sightseeing spots,” and the Nadeshiko Support Bra, a bra to “support Yamato nadeshiko (women who exemplify Japanese ideals of beauty), who bring vitality to Japan.” This week’s Branomic Bra design incorporated “wisdom,” “fortune,” and “beauty,” echoing Prime Minister Abe’s three-pronged approach to improving the economy (monetary policy, fiscal policy, and an economic growth strategy focused on private investment). Wisdom was for investing into one’s new potential, fortune was for praying for economic restoration, and beauty was aimed at improving feminine power. The bras were golden, to symbolize Saraswati, one of the Seven Deities of Good Fortune.

Also included were oval pads that increased bust size by 2 percent, matching Prime Minister Abe’s promise to increase the GDP by 2 percent. ALISA, Triumph’s 21st poster girl, effused “I wonder who’s idea this was. It’s great!” Arisa Watanabe also remarked with a laugh, “I’m definitely thankful for a 2 percent increase!”

If only politicians could produce such guaranteed results!

Unfortunately, the items are merely promotional and are not meant for sale, which is too bad for Hatapon. He probably could have used an extra bit of bust.
