In this Sunday Oct. 9, 2011 photo, North Korean-made bras are displayed for sale at Pyongyang Department Store No. 1 in downtown Pyongyang, North Korea.

The new consumerism is part of a campaign launched three years ago to build up the economy, and so the image of new leader Kim Jong Un. (AP Photo/David Guttenfelder)
