What? Solar panel to charge phone, ok. But how on earth does the bra come into it? It is heated or something? Does it light up? For what possible reason does it require solar panels..? This issue may require more research at home.
A former (male) colleague once went for an interview at Triumph.
I can't be bothered to repeat the entire story he told, but he said the moment that he decided that working there was not for him was when the interviewer said that Triumph expected all their employees to be passionate about women's underwear. This is not precisely the average male demographic.
Unless one is a backup dancer for the latest celebutramp du jour, or chooses to dress like one, just when is the solar panel supposed to get enough sun (or ambient other) light to charge? Wouldn't the panel (and cleavage-lever water bags) detract from whatever "sexy" might have been achieved by wearing one's undies as outerwear? Did they actually sell any of these things or were the 20,000 items recalled still on warehouse shelves? Sorry, apparently I missed some key plot points here ....
Even less fathomable is the manufacturer's "Abenomics" bra that addressed the issue of boom and bust economics by honouring Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's fiscal policy plan the only obvious way.
One girl, two cups?
