Japanese are known for their fixation for quirky vending machines that offer items like food, magazines and umbrellas. And to take that crazy obsession a notch higher, the famous Kyoto-based lingerie giant Wacoal has introduced a bra-vending machine.
Currently stationed at the company’s branded store in Shibuya, Tokyo, the vending machine features a colourful size-chart and a number punching board, which helps the customer to punch in the exact size to dispense their desired ensemble. 
The machine, which will be in service till September, 2013, offers an array of the popular Fun Fun Week wireless brassieres.
Founded in 1946, Wacoal Corporation is a worldwide innerwear manufacturer that specializes in a variety of shapewear, camisoles and other intimate apparels.
