*NEWS*HEATED BRA ….TO SAVE THE WORLD

    Heated bra aims to save the world
    A leading lingerie company has joined Japan’s fight against high fuel use, unveiling a heated bra for winter.
    The
    fluffy creation contains special pads filled with an eco-friendly gel
    that can be easily heated in a microwave or with a hot water bottle.
    The design also includes a furry boa designed to double as a winter scarf.
    Lingerie
    giant Triumph unveiled the bra months after PM Junichiro Koizumi urged
    Japan’s office workers to ditch ties to save on air conditioning.
    Being
    padded, the new bra packs a little more bulk than most regular designs,
    but the Japanese arm of Triumph insisted the look was more chic than
    sheep.
    “We hope this will not only help prevent global warming but
    also provide a little fashion chic to the office,” the company said in
    a statement.
    The bra, which comes only in white, also features a pendant shaped like a chilli pepper dangling on its front.
    Environmental support
    The
    bra comes with matching shorts, but is not being offered for general
    sale. Instead the set is being viewed as a prototype product, the first
    step towards mass-producing eco-friendly clothing.
    Japan’s
    government is encouraging people not to set their domestic heating
    higher than 20C this winter, to reduce fuel consumption and conserve
    energy stocks.
    During the summer, Mr Koizumi surprised Japan’s
    traditionally well-dressed office workers by discarding his tie and
    urging his countrymen to do the same.
    The drive to reduce
    air-conditioning use and thus greenhouse gas emissions was estimated to
    have saved enough power to supply 240,000 homes for a month.
