Women In Japan Are Putting Blue Ribbons Under Their Boobs To Imitate An Anime Character, And Also Because Boobs — PHOTOS
Boobs. Everyone loves boobs. No matter what your size is, there's always a good reason to like your boobs. If having bigger boobs makes you happier then hey, you do you. I'm all for it, especially if you've found a way to enhance your size that doesn't involve potentially invasive or harmful surgeries which, even if you opt for them, are expensive and painful and basically not anyone's favorite way to spend a day. It appears as if this using a blue ribbon to make your boobs looks bigger, a hack based on a Japanese anime, would do just that. That's right, sporting a blue ribbon on your chest to enhance your knockers seems to be all the rage in Japan right now. The ribbon loops over your chest and around your arms, so when you lift your arms up the ribbon acts almost like a push-up bra to make your breasts appear larger.
The look was actually inspired by Hestia, a heroine from the anime Is it Wrong To Pick Up Girls In A Dungeon. Hestia's blue chest ribbon has become part of her signature look in the show, a look that girls across Japan—not just cosplayers, but everyday women—are starting to emulate. It's up in the air whether or not this is more comfortable than a push-up bra (can anything really be less comfortable than a push up bra?) but emulating cool anime heroines would definitely earn anyone some major cool points.
Here is Hestia's signature blue ribbon look:
Clearly, it's not just for anime characters anymore. Here are some of the cosplayers capturing Hestia's signature look:
But hey, you don't have to be a cosplayer to get in on the fun:
And, uh. There's this.
