American-Japanese model Kiko designs 'morning cleavage' bra for lingerie brand Wacoal

If you’ve watched "Queer Eye: We’re in Japan!" on Netflix recently, you’ll be familiar with Kiko Mizuhara, a famous model in Japan.

The 28 year-old American-Japanese model, actress, singer, and designer acted as tour guide for the Fab Five while they were filming their special four-episode capsule series in Japan, and throughout the series it was clear that the cast of the show had fallen in love with Kiko and her effervescent personality.

Now the model is stepping out into the spotlight again, this time for popular Japanese lingerie brand Wacoal. After being named ambassador for Wacoal’s “Morning Cleavage Longlasting Ribbon Bra” in spring this year, which involved her designing and modelling one of the bras for the company, Kiko is back with a brand new version for the holiday season.

And here to show us just how well the cleavage-setting bra stands up to activities like playing drums on a rooftop, is Kiko in a new commercial for the product.

As the clip shows, this is one bra that can carry what it needs to, despite even the most excessive movements.

Kiko says the lacy camisole can be worn on the outside of your clothes as well as underneath them.

▼ The ribbon bra retails for 6,300 yen plus tax, with D-F cup sizes slightly more expensive, at 6,800 yen plus tax.

Kiko says she wanted to create a cute design that wraps around the bust with a ribbon, being particular about the color selections. Pink-and-black are said to offer a cute, girly appeal while the ivory-and-blue creates a pure, neat look perfect for weddings.

Kiko’s Ribbon Bra range can be purchased at department stores, lingerie shops, major retail chains and Wacoal boutiques nationwide.

Never heard of her, but good for her.

Hope the wife don't see his post, I was hoping to spend a little less this Christmas. She's already upset with cancelling the Victoria Secrets show. He blames the men-in-suits for that.

Kiko is jaw-droppingly beautiful. I wish she had a bit more meat on her bones, but facially she's just preternaturally stunning.

A famous model being judged on her weight and looks again, how bizarre. She has a unique look and her commercials appear regularly on Tokyo subways.

Women being judged on their weight and looks again.

Point one) I didn't judge, I admired;

Point two) On what other factors would you prefer me to base an assessment of someone I've only ever seen in photographs? I'd welcome the chance to have a long discussion about history and politics with her, but until that occurs, her visual appeal is all I have to go on. And she's two thumbs straight up.

she is a pretty lady just needs to straighten those teeth to be called a top model, yes and a little gym works to put more meat on her bones sort of pointless advertising bras when you don't really have the assets to fill them

all models should be judged on their weight especially if its shown to younger people, anorexia is a serious condition and starving yourself to have the impression of beauty isnt healthy for models or the women that look up to them. personally I like the figures of female swimmers , slim , healthy , slightly muscular physics but very physically attractive at the same .

Yeah because underwear models get their photos taken for underwear catalogues to show off what their personalities look like in underwear.

All the time. At home.

Is morning cleavage like morning wood?

I'm confused. Women want to dress like this, and yet they also want #MeToo. Maybe I'm confused because I'm totally gay.

*The matching pant costs 3,000 yen*

A pant is a quick, short breath. Like wot a dog does when it's hot.

Wot ladies wear under their skirts is pants.

Plural.

As in, a pair of pants.

As in, there are two matching holes, one for each leg.

Women want to dress like this, and yet..

Dress like what? This lady isn't dressed, she's in a state of undress. In her underwear. She's selling underwear.

Stuff to hold things in place under a lady's clothes.

T'would be more compelling if she had anything to hold in place, a cleavage at any time of day.

She's pretty, though.

The targeted advertising missed its target with me.

A bit too buck-toothed for me.

Scrawny, too. Nice hair, I guess. In short, I'm with "inkochi".

I'm confused. Women want to dress like this, and yet they also want #MeToo. Maybe I'm confused because I'm totally gay.

Because they want to be able to dress that way without fear of getting sexually assaulted. Which seems like an entirely reasonable hope, if not expectation. Because the converse would be that the price for dressing that way would be that a woman would have to accept being sexually assaulted. And that's not a world I think anyone should be living in, male or female.

Kiko hit those cymbals at the beginning of the commercial with authority! Looks like she had fun doing that one.

@Strangerland That is a nice sentiment, but it seems that women don't understand how mens' minds work.

Being judged for what? If they're being judged for their sex appeal, are those not adequate factors? Is it any different for Brad Pitt or those other guys my wife likes to watch?

Because they want to be able to dress that way without fear of getting sexually assaulted. Which seems like an entirely reasonable hope, if not expectation.

Leaving out the "assaulted" part, should we not be aware of what makes us sexually attractive to others? And if we don't want to attract sexual advances, shouldn't we dress more conservatively? My big question is how come I find women dressed in underwear more attractive than men dressed in underwear. Am I a deviant?

Well, some men's minds. Not all of us, I mean, surely you must agree - if there is anyone here that is going to see a girl in revealing clothes, and not feel an urge do have your way with her it would be you I should think :)

Gym work won't help, she has an ectomorph body type, not mesomorph.

That's potentially not entirely accurate as we don't know whether her mother had a Korean or Japanese passport. I wonder why the media report on her as 'Japanese-American' if you're right
