Researchers in Tokyo have started compiling 3D models of the female body - all in search of that perfect fitting bra. With the majority of women not fitting comfortably into conventional lingerie sizes and styles, it is often frustrating trying to find the ideal lingerie set. Yet, according to the Kensuke Nakamura of Kyoto Institute of Technology, trying on bra after bra might soon be a thing of the past.
Using photographs, measurements and a patented technique used to determine body shapes, five different types of Japanese body have been determined. Sampling over 560 Japanese women between the ages of 19 and 63, Kyoto researchers claim to have the solution to one of our biggest lingerie problems, getting the right fit.
