A couple of times a year, Japan's Triumph International unveils a themed undergarment based on a current trend or issue. Bringing women closer to agriculture is the company's latest inspiration for crazy conceptual underwear, which takes form in the shape of the Rice Bra.

Last year Triumph highlighted the plight of lonely women hunting for husbands with the Konkatsu Bra, and then took to the green with the Nice Cup In Bra golfing kit. This year's first offering hopes to help focus young people's attention on the slightly more serious issue of agriculture, rice production in particular. Needless to say, there's nothing that'll make youngsters sit up and take notice like a couple of bra cups that come together to make a handy rice planter.

The two halves of the bra merge to produce a planting pot, the pads fold out out to offer ...

Behind each of the planters, bra pads roll out to double up as protection from the sun for the arms, while the straps feature sparkling decorations to dissuade pesky airborne pests from stealing your crop. The kit comes with a pair of "authentic" work shorts - fastened to the rear are removable work gloves emblazoned with symbols for harvest, and a water hose serves as a belt. A pouch of soil and seed starters are also included.

Before planting any seeds, though, a prospective farmer will need to remove the bra from the wearer. After that, all the benefits of the outdoor life can be enjoyed to the fullest.
