Lingerie White Paper.

If you’re the sort of person who likes to keep your eyes on breasts, in a statistical sense, of course, you might recall that Japanese intimate apparel manufacturer Triumph periodically releases what it calls the Lingerie White Paper. Since 1980, the company has been annually compiling statistics on its bra sales, with the data broken down by cup size, in an attempt to determine the current state of chest sizes in Japan.

We last sifted through the data two years ago. Since then, the trend of increasingly large busts has continued, with Triumph’s sales of A cup bras falling to a minuscule 4.1 percent of the sales total in 2016, in stark contrast to the 58.6 percent of its sales that came from A cup offerings in 1980. In fact, A, B, and C cup sales have all been in steady decline, continuing through the most recent period.
