Shimapan Exemplar


An idol wearing shimapan (striped pantsu) and a shirt.

It seems shimapan enjoy great popularity, though thus far this seems to be chiefly limited to 2D.

I came upon the following exchange on 2ch regarding this curious issue:

“Are they fools? Why don’t they wear shimapan?”

“Y’know, if you actually go into a department store and look at the ladies underwear section, you probably won’t find any. Not many places actually sell them.”

I wonder if this is true? You’ll have to excuse me if I refrain from any investigative reporting, however.

Certainly, in Japan it seems the normal style for ladies is white (with the obligatory little faux ribbon)…
