This Bra Vending Machine Allows Customers to Shop Without Salespeople

A lingerie company in Japan called Wacoal has created a bra vending machine.

This machine was made to make life easier for women who find bra shopping embarrassing. Instead of having to consult a salesperson, women would simply choose their bra size and which bra they want by using the keys on the panel. All the bras in this device are $30 and once paid, the bra dispenses instantly; it works exactly like a soda vending machine. However, this fast shopping technique has received a lot of criticism. While this seems like a more efficient way of shopping, the problem lies in the fact that someone has already paid for the bra without ensuring that it fits properly.

There's no telling how successful the bra vending machine would be, but it'd definitely be interesting to walk in a store and see it.
