Jury bra

70 Comments

Guilty or not guilty? Lingerie maker Triumph’s campaign girl Hiromi Nishiuchi, 19, wears the “Jury System Bra” which was created for the company’s 2009 spring/summer collection held at Tokyo Ryutsu Center. Triumph International Japan, which annually creates a unique bra to reflect a current social issue, expects the Jury System Bra to raise public awareness of the lay juror system, which will start in Japan from May 21, 2009.

So can we expect to see a bunch of lingerie clad, sword weilding babes strutting around reminding the japanese of their civic duties?

Oh, seesaw! Get a grip! - You see more at the beach!

This is equal to how farcical the jury system will be in Japanese courts.

So she cannot pose for pictures in probably the least revealing bra I have ever seen in my life?

And if you are looking at the picture but seeing a kid, well, I could say a lot of things that the moderator will probably erase. Chill out man. The model is not being abused.

Thank you JT...another wonderful photo appreciated by all. Long may you continue with Triumph, Wacoal and the other campaign pgirl pictures.

I've been looking for a bra and this just might be the one!!!!!!!!!!!!

Are people going to be randomly selected by mail to serve Japan by wearing these? I can't see how else they're going to sell... unless they come with Hiromi herself, of course.

Looks like a coconuts bra.

Justice is blind, so it looks like I'll need a grope to weight the evidence.

JT, don't worry about meanmutha, he/she probably just got up on the wrong side of the bed this mornin'.

and this just shows you how SCAREY it is that the Nihonjin will be jurors! ugh the horror ahead ... so GLAD they take the justice system so seriously here

is a word ........ stupid

wargal - just read your post ... good one! im still rolling my eyes but you know this beats that sushi bra of yesteryear (forget what that one was all about ... naturally)

Not as appetizing as I would like it but, not a bad shot either....

Who cares !!!!!! This picture is sterotyping Japanese women as kawaii models.I'm attracted to women with clothes on then clothes off.

Comes with manacles of righteous justice!

Where can I get one. Not the bra, but the girl beneath the bra. That's where the real gold is.

To Disillusioned: you see more at the beach..yes, indeed, but they do it for fun...this 19-year old model is being used by her Manager or her parents to gain lucrative income for himself/themselves.... To CavemanLawyer: at 19, being used for such purpose...is not abused? wait till you have a 19-year old daughter. I don't have one, but still I don't agree to exploiting a 19 year old to flash out that bra...Jury Bra..my foot!

0 ( +0 / -0 )

this is just so much bad taste i wouldn`t know where to begin. good luck with the jury system here in japan if this is how it is.

To paraphrase the old saying: "Japan sure has class. Unfortunately all of it is low".

ha! nice saying there Jersey. This is probably the most ridiculous bra I've ever seen. I can just hear the squeals "wah~kawaii!!!" from the design room when they revealed the latest design. sigh

0 ( +0 / -0 )

I agree with you jerseyboy!...this is certainly one example of them, using a 19-year old to raise awareness of the juror system...it just doesn't match....

damn!

Ha ha...this Hiromi is looking more and more funny, is it a coincidence that the company intended to debut her this way, I mean amid all the injustice being reported these days.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

I guess we'll have to see if someone hands down the "heavy hand of the law" on those.

It sure beats looking at a crane flying south for the winter.

Wow this is the most worthless thing I have ever seen. What is the point of this bra again? I am sure it doesn't ''lift and support'' lol

which annually creates a unique bra to reflect a current social issue

should have just had a 12 year old in a bra and 10 rows of leering barcode ojisans taking photos, that's a social issue that needs addressing

0 ( +0 / -0 )

It's not a real social issue in Japan until someone makes a bra out of it.

I'm confused -- the two cups seem to be of equal size. If this bra is based on the scales of Japanese justice, shouldn't the cup representing "guilt" be about 99 times the size of the minuscule "innocence" cup?

Shouldn't she be wearing a blindfold?

I sure wish I was...

LOL, Mark. In that case, for bras, no noose is good noose.

My verdict is that Hiromi has nice breasts. Let's stop beating around the George W Bush and just say it. Oh yes, the citizen judge system. A very good idea and long overdue.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Thon, this is the pre-arrest bra. The post-arrest bra has only one cup.

When I look at pictures of women from the world over, I always find Japanese women to be the most beautiful in the world. Thier bodies are so natural and perfect. Love em.

Is this not a matched set? No "Jury System" panties. An for men will the have "Well-hung Jury System" brief. Probably not. It is Japan.

Off the subject of the thread, I will agree with CultureChange for the picture is a prize example of beauty or justice.

I'm very, very disappointed in all of you. I can't believe that nobody punned around with the "lay" in "lay jury".

What they are actually promoting is a new firmer bra that will not require tons of cushions and paddings. But it is the same old thing, most Japanese women can do away with bra anything, as there is noting to be hidden.

But this one has some meat and a nice smile.
