We all like to dress sexy on the occasion. Whether you’re doing it for that special someone, or for yourself, having some lingerie can make things more interesting. Some people also just want some underwear that is comfy or looks cute. Whatever your case, Japan has you covered with their unique and variety-filled brands. If you’re traveling to Japan, or planning on ordering something from there, you may wonder what types of lingerie the country has to offer. Here are some of the best brands to look into for all kinds of budgets. You will surely find something that fits your desire, no matter what you are looking for.
This is perhaps Japan’s most popular brands. Like a big brand in America, they have more than just underwear and lingerie. For those who are wondering about the price, they have prices for any type of budget. Their bras can either enhance or reduce the size of your breasts, too. If you go to a department store in Japan, you will probably find Wacoal in there, so give it a try.

Uniqlo is a brand that has quite a bit of apparel varieties than just underwear, but underwear is one of its specialties. They are comfy and for any budget, making them ideal for the entire population of Japan. Instead of designing whatever is trendy, they instead go for the classic, unique designs. While some people may not like this, they will last you a lifetime, since they never go out of style. Uniqlo isn’t, well, unique, but it’s certainly comfortable and great.

This is a rising brand for a good reason. As you can imagine, they have designs that are unique, flirty, have tons of sex appeal, and there’s something for everyone. Their stores are located all across the country, and their store has a unique, colorful design that is always smelling of perfume. They sell more than underwear, too. They have other products in their store that you may be interested in such as accessories and other items. If you’ve ever been in a Victoria’s Secret, you can expect the same out of Peach John, so give it a try and see if it’s for you.

This lingerie is meant for those who want to look like a woman. You can expect clothing that leaves little to the imagination, and it’s great for couples or just a woman who wants to be confident. Ravijour goes for a bit more than many of the other brands described on here, but they are still for a lower budget, going for around 5,000 yen. You can find other forms of clothing in these stores too, including swimsuits.

Absorle lacks physical stores; if you go to Osaka, you can find a store in the Opa building, but that’s about it. It’s mostly a mail-order lingerie brand. It’s meant for the younger crowd, because it offers lingerie for as little as 2,000 yen. To put it in the perspective of USD, that’s less than $20. It’s great for those who are on a budget, but also for teens who want to look like adults. We’ve all dreamt of the day we grew into an adult, and Absorle helps fulfill that fantasy.

Here’s another brand that is slowly expanding. Risa Magli was originally a Kansai exclusive, but they’ve been expanding a bit since then. You can find colorful, cute underwear of all types here, and it’s an average price for the consumer. It’s good for women who want to look great, and wear a unique kind of lingerie to boot. Check it out.

All the brands so far have been either low or mid-range budget. Now, we look at a brand for those who want so spend more. These can range from 10,000-20,000 a set, or about $100-$200 USD, so it’s a brand that is worn by those who have money or those who want to splurge a little bit on their lingerie. When you wear Salute, you may feel rich and powerful, and that can be a good thing. It’s nice to have such a good taste in clothing that you’ll spend more on something that the public can’t even see. It’s also great to show that someone that you want to look your best. Of course, don’t feel pressured into buying more than you can spend.

Here’s another high quality brand. If you’re into Japanese celebrity culture, you may be familiar with Uno Kanda. Uno produces this brand. If you’re looking for colorful clothing, look elsewhere. This underwear comes in monotone colors, (like white, black, beige, etc.) but they are great if you want to show off your body. Give them a look, and see if it’s your thing or not.

And those are all the basics. Like America, Japan has a variety of brands, and each brand can tell you something about yourself. Do you enjoy comfort and affordable prices? Do you want to look cute, flirty, or sexy? Do you want to splurge and buy something that’s going to shock the next person who sees your underwear? Whatever your desire, you can find it when you go to Japan. And like most stores, you can order internally, too. It’s no substitute for going to a store and trying it on, but by following the sizing chart, you’ll be able to get that right fit regardless of distance.

The earliest use of jewelry was probably functional, perhaps using a buckle to hold up a belt, or a brooch to clasp and hold together a cape.
