Paddied bra?

Just wanted to add that Triumph was founded in Germany and has its company headquarters are in Switzerland.
But yes, the Japanese devision seems to operate very independently.

Finally, male observers of the world of women's fashion are paying attention to breasts.

Boob-related comment.

...for me to poop on.

Sorry, I just can't hear the name Triumph anymore without thinking about that, or tiny cars.

The main problem with the bra is that it should let you grow tomatoes. Because then guys could legitimately say "hey, look at those tomatoes!"

Thank yew, I'll be here all week- enjoy the veal!

And, I have to add that in this context, the insult comic dog's words are especially inappropriate.

Check out the mellons on that one!

thank you, dammitjim and pollomacho, for reminding me of it.

I like Triumph, they are usually my first and mostly my only choice. and that is all I am going to say on the subject of bras

grows rice

*rule 34 invocation*

That's not all it grows.

Wait, wait, man, this totally isn't fair.

I pretty much only wear the world's best-selling bra, which has not changed since 1967, and Triumph Japan gets solar-powered, rice-growing, microwave gel pack-heated and lunch-holding bras?

I feel so cheated.

So that's what those "adult" sites mean by "water sprouts."

I just get the feeling that the Japanese division operates like Invader Zim. That is, every so often they send in a message to the main company of their latest triumph, and the Tallest CEO and board of directors are just left there staring at each other in confusion.

Haha yes, happyroach. I've always had Triumph pegged as an expensive and rather conservative brand. This is funny.

Don't tase me bra!

infini - does your wife know about this?

Doesn't rice-farming require nasty-smelling stagnant water?

Amazing.

Bras that grow rice! Bras that light up! Bras made of meat! Robot bras!

It gives me hope that maybe, someday, somewhere in the world, science may yet develop a bra that fits my boobs and doesn't itch.

Oh wow. I need to add these to my list of bras that should not be.
posted by limeonaire at 7:49 PM on May 17, 2010


What. I would totally wear a drill bra.


Two questions: Do they make them in larger cup sizes? Does it have a keyless chuck?

Because then I agree with you, fuck that thing.

Haha. A drill bra is a great idea for the wearer; not so much of a great idea for the person who's being attacked by the wearer, à la the linked film.

One of my breasts couldn't even begin to fit in that. Give me a traditional bra for big boobed girls any day. These ladies are really petite and can pretty much fit their parts in most anything. She's twiggy and I'm Marilyn Monroe.
