A functional undergarment, designed by Japan Women University to be used by a astronaut in space is under test trials according to the Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency. The astronaut, Koichi Wakata is scheduled to live on the International Space Station.

The undergarment called J-Ware is being tested for properties of being stink-free even if worn for a period of seven days, or a week. Among many properties it can absorb water, kill bacteria, is flame retardant, static free, insulate the body and dry quickly.

The astronauts will also not have to worry about lugging extra undergarments to space and if the trials come through successfully, the undergarment has huge commercial ramifications. Consumers may be able to wear lingerie for a week, without having to worry about the smell.
