*The delightful Found In Translation videos had a great explanation for this. The japanese name for the item is a slang term meaning "trying hard to look older"-style underwear but the literal translation of "trying hard to look older" is a reference to standing on tiptoes to look taller. In Japan they'd understand it to be a metaphor and 'underwear to make you look older' would mean a padded bra. But the translator saw "standing on tip-toes underwear" and thought it meant a scoliosis brace!

Holy cow. I never knew that. All these years, I'm not sure what I THOUGHT it meant but I certainly didn't assume it was something like that. Ig maybe I thought it was something like those special chairs you can get which are still basically normal but improve your posture (I know underwear like that doesn't exist but this game features dragons, genetically modified war veterans and Cloud's hair not collapsing under its own weight, posture-improving underwear was NOT a stretch). Thanks for sharing this!
Piano, turkey, Donald Trump's down-belows, Arkansas wardrobe, flagellation, polar bears - it's beans! Can we expect any nuclear fallout today, John? Certainly!

I always assumed it was a special bra because she has such huge boobs that she was getting back problems even at s young age. Either way, it’s obvious it’s some kind of bra and not panties because of the whole “orthopedic” thing.

People who overestimate their abilities reach erroneous conclusions and make unfortunate choices, and their incompetence robs them of the ability to realize it.
