Triumph International bra is recalled

A Japanese lingerie maker is recalling over 20,000 brassieres after complaints that underwears suddenly poked out, sometimes while women were wearing them.

The Japanese division of lingerie maker Triumph International, which has made a name for itself with concept lingerie such as a solar-powered bra and an “Abenomics” bra, said they took the move due to fears of injury.

“We are sorry for the trouble, but we ask customers to stop using the bras immediately,” the company said in a statement.

The company added that it deeply apologised and would take steps to prevent a recurrence.

“The recall applies to roughly 22,000 bras ranging in cost from 5,600 to 6,200 yen (£30.4 to £33.7) and sold only in Japan,” a company spokeswoman said.

There have been no reports of injuries from the defect, which caused the tips of the under wears to protrude from holes in the fabric, sometimes after washing and sometimes while people were wearing them.

“It would be terrible if it happened again and somebody’s skin was scratched,” she added.
