Bras to Save the World

You have to hand it to the Japanese. They come out with some unique solutions. In an effort to stop global warming, Triumph, a lingerie company in Japan has come up with a prototype of a heated bra. It even comes with a boa and matching shorts.

The fluffy creation contains special pads filled with an eco-friendly gel that can be easily heated in a microwave or with a hot water bottle.

The design also includes a furry boa designed to double as a winter scarf.

Lingerie giant Triumph unveiled the bra months after PM Junichiro Koizumi urged Japan's office workers to ditch ties to save on air conditioning.

Being padded, the new bra packs a little more bulk than most regular designs, but the Japanese arm of Triumph insisted the look was more chic than sheep.

"We hope this will not only help prevent global warming but also provide a little fashion chic to the office," the company said in a statement.

The bra, which comes only in white, also features a pendant shaped like a chilli pepper dangling on its front. BBC News

SeaWitch ... you should do your part or can we say hold up your end of the bargain for global warming.

But in your area ... you would need an AC model :P

jack,

No gel paks ever!! Hey, the AC model might not be a bad idea. Maybe I should e-mail Triumph and suggest.
