It promises to provide extra stimulus.
Not to the weak economy, but around the chest of a woman.
Swiss lingerie-maker Triumph is the latest company trying to cash in on the "Abenomics" fad in Japan, by unveiling its latest concept bra in Tokyo.
Dubbed "Bra-nomics," it's a play on Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's three-arrow economic revival plan that aims to reach 2 percent inflation in two years.
This 2 percent inflation is mirrored in its "Bra-nomics" bra says Triumph spokesperson Yoshiko Masuda.
SOUNDBITE: Triumph International Spokesperson, Yoshiko Masuda, saying (Japanese)
"We've put in these pads that boost the bra's cups by 2 percent. We hope that as the Japanese economy grows, we can also help bust sizes to get bigger."
However, the bra has little chance of lifting Japan's flat economy, as it's merely a novelty design that will not go on sale to the general public.
