The brand name ‘Debucari’ originates from the word debu, which means “fat“, and kariru which means “to rent“.
Debucari is for fat people of over 100 Kg
Debucari’s weight threshold for “fat people” is 100 kilograms (220 pounds), and presently has over-125 and over-150 kg classes too.
The company states that their goal is to promote “progression away from an era where being fat had a negative image”, asserting that “in Japan, it takes skill to reach a weight of over 100 kilograms”.
Debucari is used for photo shooting and TV commercials
The purposes of renting are mainly for commercial clients, where they provide plus-sized models and extras for photo shoots and TV/movie filming.
The company is also looking for “debu” people to register with them on their official website.
