Bras for Men – Available now in Japan
Not only have men’s bras been available for a while in Japan, they just reached the number 1 spot on one of Japan’s largest online shops ‘Rakuten’, according to this Japanese news article. The bras come in black, white and pink, and are made of materials that give a luster look and stretchy feel. Why men’s bras you ask? The Rakuten shop says that it will “make you feel more gentle” and “give you a sense of relief – because that is a very important feeling to have”.
Interested in buying one? Need more info? You can purchase one here at Rakuten. The shopping site goes into more detail, including these four selling points:
Point 1: Specially chosen materials.
Made from the same “Felica” fibers used in popular men’s shorts. Has beautiful shine. Feels soft to the touch. Stretches to fit just right.
Point 2: Freedom of the perfect fit.
Bras designed with a “glasses shape” to the front middle section – the most important part of a bra. The front of the bra will move/adapt according to the shape of your chest.
Point 3: Helps you relax.
Bra features a very soft shoulder strap, which is different from bras for women. Emphasis is on relaxation more than building up your bust.
Point 4: Capable of “Volume Up!”
Pad pockets are included on the inside of the bra, so you can throw a pad in there to “pump up the volume!”.
Look, if you are still not satisfied, check out this picture from the shop – the guy is in complete ecstasy!
The final text here really gets to the point – the bra is really for borderline transexual metrosexuals. Here is a translation:
“Times like these call for a Men’s Bra
- Even us guys want to know how a woman feels!
- We want to reel in our emotions! (lit. “strain/tighten our emotions”)
- I have the body of a man, but I’m a guy who feels like a little girl!
- I want to remember a gentle feeling.
- I need support for my chest!
- There are sure to be many reasons, but the most important thing is to feel gentle/tender.”
