Do you have a love/hate relationship with vending machines? If you were lucky (or unlucky, depending on how you look at it) enough to have one in your freshman dorm, those M&Ms were awfully tempting after a night of drinking. Do you also have a love/hate relationship with bra shopping? After all, that first middle school experience of someone poking and prodding at your baby breasts can be quite unfortunate — you never assumed the first time you got to second base would be with the old Russian lady at the local Victoria’s Secret while your mother waited in the wings. Hopefully you’ve fully recovered.
It seems like lately there’s a vending machine for everything. My local mall even has a gold vending machine, and I mean, who doesn’t want to tote bars of gold around a la wild west? Now Wacoal is introducing a vending machine in Japan for bras. With the push of a bra button, a brand new bra will be yours to keep. Personally, I think a claw machine full of bras would be better. Think of what a fun addition to any bar that could be. There are lots of ladies wearing ill-fitting bras on the daily, and I think this vendor will add to that hot mess. I know A’s rocking C’s and vice versa, so this is just a disaster waiting to happen, but I guess if all of the bras are one size, you’re in the clear. Online shopping has always made me nervous, because I like to try things on before I decide how I feel about them. Buying something you’ve never seen before is like waiting for marriage, and no one wants that. Wacoal is famous for having hard to find sizes, but I imagine the teensy ones fitting inside a vending machine are in the A department.
Japan already has a utilized a vending machine for panties, so at least these brand new bras are a step in the right direction. I’d like to hope that no one’s taken your bra for a test drive before you could get at it, but now you know for sure. Until you’re completely comfortable being nude in front of a stranger who’s feeling you up (without even buying you a drink first), something that usually happens in college, bra shopping is the worst. Once you realize they’ve seen it all before, it’s totally fine. However, if you’re just not in the mood for an old lady to feel you up in public, this bra vending machine has your name on it.
