SYDNEY, Nov. 6 /CNW/ - In an effort to secure a position in the Guinness
World Records book, aussieBum will unveil what is believed to be the "Worlds
Largest pair of men's underwear".
Measuring in at 15.5 metres wide and 11 metres high, with a waist
circumference of 32 metres, the mammoth pair of undies is the size of the
front of a three-storey building. It includes 300 metres of fabric, 500 metres
of wide-width elastic, 5000 metres of cotton and a 1.5 x 6 metre logo. The
giant underpants weigh a whopping 180 kg.
The aussieBum World's Biggest Undies have been built with the help of
aussieBum's long term business partner, Italian firm Eurojersey, a major name
in the international textiles industry. Eurojersey put its faith into the
project by generously donating 300 metres of Sensitive(R) fabric. The
incredibly soft, light and easy-to-handle nature of the Sensitive(R) fabric
helped aussieBum achieve this challenge.

Bridge as a backdrop.
