    Smile some kind of underwear thing=?

    Episode:

    Lisa, Bart and Maggie are kids. One day, Lisa somehow felt quite blue. And here's the dialogue of the parents.

    Mom: I'm still tying to figure out what's bothering Lisa. I don't know. Bart's such a handful,and Maggie needs attention. But all the while, our little Lisa is becoming a young woman.

    Dad: Oh, so that's it.This is some kind of underwear thing.

    Question:

    This is some kind of underwear thing=?

    Thanks in advance!

    The reference is clearer in the West, I think (though I'm not an expert on 'foundation garments' ). Lisa is starting puberty; her father is trivializing the change by suggesting that all it means is that he has to start paying for bras.
