For those women interested in exporting this unusual Japanese fashion trend to other countries, it’s a set of cat-themed lingerie (as shown) that are flying off the shelves in Japan.
On the surface, the Japanese underwear looks like a regular pair of bra and panties. What gives it a distinctive touch is the subtle texture around the seams, which is designed to resemble cat fur. Currently, the most popular styles are black cat, Tabby, and Siamese. In addition to the fur texture, the most noticeable aspects of the lingerie are the cat tail that ties to the back of the underwear and the included set of cat ears. The tails tie onto the underwear with silk and match the bows decorating the intimate apparel. The Tabby set even comes with its own choker that resembles a collar.
You never know when you have a hot-selling product on your hands. Felissimo is the company responsible for the underwear line. The question becomes: Will the cat-themed lingerie sell outside of Japan?
