Yes folks manbras are on the move if Wishroom Executive Director Akiko Okunomiya is correct in her surprise about the number of men looking for their inner woman. Then we have a Wishroom representative Masayuki Tsuchuya who says “I like this tight feeling. It feels good.”
Hey I like the tight feeling just as much as the next man but it doesn’t come from strapping on a piece of elasticized cloth around my upper chest. However this doesn’t see to be bothering too many men though as Wishroom have sold over 300 of these things for 2,800 yen ($29.20 USD) since first putting them up for sale two weeks ago.
“I think more and more men are becoming interested in bras. Since we launched the men’s bra, we’ve been getting feedback from customers saying ‘wow, we’d been waiting for this for such a long time’,” she said.
Rakuten say the bra, which comes in black, pink and white, will “make you feel more gentle” and “give you a sense of relief – because that is a very important feeling to have”.
Sorry but I don’t care how much a man might want to get in touch with their feminine side if you don’t have female mammary glands then you don’t need a bra no matter how frilly and sexy it might look.
