It's hard enough to find a bra that fits when we're provided with a proper dressing room and measuring tape-wielding store associates. Buying a bra from a machine? Now that sounds next to impossible.
Japanese lingerie company Wacoal has just started shilling bras straight out of a vending machine. That's right, the same receptacle with which you mull over the decision between Snickers and M&M's is now where you can buy your undergarments. The debut machine is now at Wacoal's Une NaNa Cool specialty shop in Shibuya, Japan, and it's stocked with various sizes of the brand's $30 Fun Fun Week bras in clear plastic bags.
Worried about finding the right size? There's apparently a bust-sizing chart on the vending machine itself to make sure that the dispensed bra will (most likely) fit. With bra sizes continuously increasing and women becoming more and more aware of proper fit, we wonder if something like this can take off. Sure, it's quick and easy, but this may prove to be quite the challenge for women navigating the Wild Wild West of bra shopping -- one day we hear that the whole cup system is being thrown out the window and the next we hear bras are a "false necessity."
While you get all of that straight, check out Wacoal's bra vending machine below. Would this simplify your life or make bra shopping more stressful?
