Lingerie maker Triumph International Japan has unveiled the “My Chopsticks Bra” which features a pair of cups that resemble bowls of rice and miso soup, and a set of collapsible chopsticks that tuck into either side. [Pinktentacle].

The bra was introduced on November 7 in Tokyo to promote the use of reusable chopsticks instead of the the disposable wooden kind.

Japan is one of the largest users of disposable chopsticks (waribashi) in the world, probably the 2nd largest behind China.

The good thing is that Japanese youngsters these days are having more awareness on environmental issues… carrying a pair of personal reusable chopsticks are seen as a trendy move.

The lingerie model Yuko Ishida is a chopstick carrier herself. I am not sure if she would want to wear that bra on daily basis though.

Below is a video that shows more details about the bra concept…
