Doughnuts + ice cream + redmeat = Busty Japanese Women

Filed under: Business,Reviews — Dee @ 10:41 am


Krispy Kreme doughnuts, Cold Stone Creamery ice cream and red meat rich diet is changing the silhouettes of Japanese women. While their bust and hip sizes are bigger than the previous generations, the waist size has actually shrunk, giving rise to what the Japanese call “
bon-kyu-bon” or “big-small-big”.

A diet once dominated by fish, vegetables and tofu has transformed in recent years to beefy burgers and dairy rich food. All this extra protein and calcium result in bigger, stronger & rounder bodies. This change in body type has prompted fashion retailers to offer larger sizes and flashier clothes that highlight the bust and hips. Kumi Koda (pictured above), a pop singer has also had an influence in this “busting” trend.
