• Bra vending machine debuts in Japan


    The Japanese have long been known for their innovations in unusual vending machine technology, but one of the newest offerings takes things to a whole new level.

    Recently a bra-dispensing vending machine debuted in a Tokyo store. According to the web site Kotaku, Japanese lingerie maker Wacoal unveiled the bra vending machine at its Une Nana Cool branded specialty shop in Shibuya shopping district in Tokyo.

    The vending machine is packed with the popular wireless “Fun Fun Week” bras.

    The vending machine includes a handy size chart and offers a wide-range of bra colors. The bras cost about $30.

    The shop’s manager told Tokyo MX, “The vending machine’s strength is that you can quickly look at the size chart and buy.” 

    The manager also said one of the vending machine’s merits was that customers didn’t have to tell shop staff their size.

    The vending machine will be on display in Shibuya until Aug. 31 and then spend the month of September at another Une Nana Cool branch in Japan.
