Women, what do you think is the ideal bra size?? graph of japanese statistics[part 1][part 2]

iShare recently took a close look at the size of breasts in Japan, as one does. Given the ample size, I’ll split the results into two posts.

Demographics

Between the 26th and 29th of August 2011 650 members of the CLUB BBQ free email forwarding service completed a private internet-based questionnaire. The 438 women were split into 31.7% in their twenties and 68.3% in their thirties. The 212 men were split into 22.2% in their twenties and 77.8% in their thirties.

It may seem odd, but one of the major underwear makers released in April last year an internet-only breast-reduction bra and sold all 2,000 pairs almost immediately, hastely produced another 6,000 pairs which again sold like hotcakes. From the 7th of this month they are selling this year’s model, again internet-only.
