Triumph unveils new heated bra
Furry, heated bras may soon appear in some Japanese wardrobes as the country prepares for "Warm Biz" -- a nationwide government campaign urging workers to bundle up and save energy on heating this winter.
The Warm Biz Bra, unveiled this week by Tokyo-based underwear maker Triumph International, is lined with material that the company says helps save warmth.
The bra also has removable pads that can be heated in a microwave or hot water -- as well as long, furry straps that wrap around the neck like a scarf, and matching shorts.
"Warm Biz lets you add a little fun and chic to office wear, and prevents global warming," Triumph says.
In an attempt to cut energy use, Japan's government has recommended setting thermostats this winter at 19 degrees Celsius (66 degrees Fahrenheit) for government buildings, and 20 degrees Celsius (68 degrees Fahrenheit) for private companies.
The government said this year's June-August "Cool Biz" campaign -- which had bureaucrats and politicians sporting open-collar, short-sleeve shirts to cut down on air conditioning -- saved 210 million kilowatt hours, enough to power 720,000 households for a month.

Triumph produced a kind of new bra, Warm Biz Bra, which could be heated to keep body warm during winter time. The idea is coming from the promotion of energy-saving from the Japanese government.
They use special material which is claimed to be able to save warmth and the removable pads could be heated in hot water or a microwave. The furry design of the straps could also be a new fashion in the office wear.
This year, the "Cool Biz" campaign in Japan already saved 210 million kilowatt hours of energy, and the government expect the warm biz could also get expected effect, which gives rise to the novel idea for Triumph's new bra.
