The world’s biggest knickers have been unveiled and they make Bridget Jones’s look small.

The XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXL underwear is built for size 74 women who weigh approximately 45 stone with a 105-inch waistline.

The undies form part of the XXXXXXXXL range launched earlier this year British manufacturer, The Big Bloomers Company for 35st women.

But obese women from around the world have bombarded the company with complaints that the underwear is too small.

“We realised there was a woeful lack of selection and so decided to cater for much larger women,” co-owner Dianne Mannering told the Mirror.

“But I was surprised when I started receiving calls asking for even bigger ones. New Zealand and Australia are the biggest takers. Our customers have given us help to tweak the design and make the knickers more accommodating.”
