Lingerie-maker Triumph has unveiled an eco-friendly Solar Power Bra featuring a solar panel that can generate enough energy to charge a mobile phone or iPod.

The Solar Power Bra requires a solar panel to be worn around the stomach to gather direct sunlight. The concept bra will not be in stores anytime soon, said Triumph spokeswoman Yoshiko Masuda, as “people usually can not go outside without wearing clothes over it.”

The downside is that the green-colored brassiere should not be washed or worn in the rain as well.

Japan is popular with eco-friendly items and the Solar Energy Bra follows the company’s other green-themed undergarments, the Bag-Bra, a bra that can transform into a resusable shopping bag.
