aussieBum Succeeds in Breaking World Record!

Australian undie company aussieBum succeeded in breaking the world record for the largest pair of underwear [we reported on the making of the underwear here]. The massive red undies measure in at 15.9 metres (52.16 ft) wide and 10.55 metres (34.6 ft) high, with a waist circumference of 32 metres (105 ft), the mammoth underwear includes 300 metres of fabric (985 ft), 500 metres (1640.5 ft) of wide-width elastic, 5000 metres (16404 ft)of cotton, a 1.5 x 6 metre (5 x 19.6 ft) logo, and they weigh in at a whopping 180 kg! That completely smashes the previous record of 14.4 metres (47.2 ft) wide and 10.48 metres high. They undies were unveiled in true aussie fashion at Sydney's Royal Botanic Gardens, an iconic location in Sydney, with models sporting the latest fashions from aussieBum.
