What with everything that has happened this year, you might expect Triumph to go for an Olympic stadium or logo theme. Or perhaps something based on the controversial new state security law?

No, Triumph announced the Heroine Warrior Bra, made with the cooperation of JAXA, Japan’s space agency.

Modeled by Yukiko Kawabe and Chika Nakagawa, there is something of a nod toward the upcoming Star Wars sequel and its female protagonist (spot the quasi-lightsabers), as well as figure skater Mao Asada, who recently made a comeback.
