The K-man and I have had some very interesting dinner conversations over the past 14 years and tonight's was no exception...oh...except for the fact that it made tea come out of my nose...possibly a first for a dinner time topic. Seriously...I've been chuckling about this all night!!
It only got worse when he sent me an e-mail message with the advertisement he found on the Internet proving what he had told me was the truth. It seems that this particular product was introduced on television the other night and it has gotten to be quite a popular item here in Japan....so popular, in fact, that the little guy and his wife who designed and made these lovelies said that the items are now back ordered and you might have to wait 2-3 weeks for delivery.
What on earth, you might be asking yourself, could this possibly be???
I now present to you....
The Man Bra.
Yes, my friends...it seems that men who suffer from "man boobs" are actually asking for support. And they are going to get that support...in white, pink and black!!
A Christmas present, perhaps, for the tranny in our lives.
You can also go here to see more....even though you probably won't be able to read what it says, you don't really need that particular ability...just look at the pictures...scroll down and you can see the "good points" of these bras. (Actually...I think I have one that is strikingly similar..... yet in a slightly larger size....to the pink one!!)
When the K-man first mentioned this to me...after I cleaned up the tea "spill"...I imagined something more in the lines of a sports bra...a jogging bra, mind you...to hold everything in a bit tighter. These? A bit too....shall we say..."girly", me thinks.
Personally....I can't imagine buying this for any man in my life. Yes, I know that "man boobs" are something that can happen and do to the chosen few. But, to actually purchase a bra for any one of those men (brothers, dad, uncles, good friends)...other than those who I think would actually like this and might already have one or three (you know who you are!!), I'm going to have to say....no...sorry...huh-uh...unless of course it was meant as a joke.
Okay...so readers....Man Bras. Discuss.
