A Japanese mail order fashion catalog, Belle Maison, has come up with a new item that can be added to the “odd, but clever” product category that Japan is so well-known for. Here is what they are calling the “chest line cover,” a piece of fabric that attaches to a woman’s bra, and keeps their cleavage covered if they lean forward while wearing a blouse. When worn it gives the appearance of wearing a camisole, or tight fitting tank-top, underneath a blouse or other low-cut top.
The cover is held in place by wrapping around the bra straps, and stays attached by using snaps. The lower part is simply tucked under the bottom seam of the bra. The item is becoming popular not just for the intention it’s named after, but also as an alternative for fewer layers during the hot summer months; especially this year when it’s expected to be worse than usual with short supplies of power. After debuting last year, the chest line cover now comes in six different colors, and better fits to different bra sizes. It’s priced at 1,050 yen ($12.92), and can be purchased from the Belle Maison Monthly Club‘s website.
