The unique undergarment was unveiled on Nov 13 in Tokyo, and is a show of support for the rise of Japanese women on the world stage and at home.

The item features shapeable metallic breast cups made of tin, forged by a female cast metal artisan, Yuko Hagiwara.

On the bra strap and skirt are two metallic cherry blossoms. The undergarment also features convenient side pockets, which can hold a comb and mirror.

The patterns on the midsection of the undergarment was also handcrafted by a female blacksmith.

When the patterns are placed side by side, they form the words, "restoration", to celebrate the achievements of Japanese women on the world stage.
