Evangelion Lingerie Makes an Impact, Sells out Immediately
The Rei Ayanami lingerie features lace reminiscent of Rei’s hair and ribbon accents.
Upscale anime and video game fashion and lifestyle brand SuperGroupies has announced a series of Evangelion lingerie, quickly becoming a hot topic on the Japanese internet.
The “Eva Lingerie”, which includes bras and panties, is based on characters from the popular Rebuild of Evangelion movies, including Rei Ayanami, Asuka Langley Shikinami, and Mari Illustrious Makinami. The items went up for preorder from SuperGroupies on Wednesday, August 5th, but sold through their limited allotment almost instantaneously, closing sales much earlier than expected. Due to the enthusiastic response from fans, the company opened a second round of preorders for a later production run, which sold out in a matter of days.
Despite sales being closed, the Eva Lingerie page on SuperGroupies’ official site is still seeing significant traffic, and the company’s official Twitter and Facebook accounts are also highly-trafficked areas. Fans who were unable to purchase the items during the initial preorder periods have been making their desire for Eva Lingerie quite clear.
The bras are available in Japanese A-cup through F-cup sizes, and in 65, 70, and 75 circumferences. Each of the 3 different sets of bra and panties retails for 8,800 yen, plus tax.
The fronts of the bra and panties are printed with a pattern based on the Spear of Longinus.
The Asuka Langley Shikinami lingerie lives up to expectations, featuring a design based on Asuka’s plugsuit.
The fashionable bra includes red lace and an orange layer.
The Mari Illustrious Makinami lingerie includes purple and deep red ribbon accents.
The light purple accents resemble Mari’s easily recognizable appearance.
