Now THAT'S a VPL: The new XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXL underwear for women with a 105in waistline (and they're flying off the shelves)

By Daily Mail Reporter

Supersize me: A model poses in he latest range of underwear by The Big Bloomers Company, made to fit 45stone women with a 74 dress size

A company which makes the world's biggest knickers has been forced to make even larger underwear - for women who are a size 74 with 105in waistlines.

The Big Bloomers Company was set up by mother and daughter Dianne and Laura Mannering earlier this year making underwear up to XXXXXXXXL for 35 stone women.

But they were inundated with calls from obese women around the world claiming they are too small.

So the pair have developed their latest range - which are a staggering XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXL - to fit 45 stone women who have a 8.75ft waistline and a dress size of 74.

Women from New Zealand, France and Australia have already been clamouring for the items, which have been flying off the shelves since going on sale last week.

Made to measure: Since the launch last week, around 100 items have sold and New Zealand and Australia are the biggest takers

Dianne, 68, of Penryn, Cornwall said: 'We realised there was a woeful lack of selection and so decided to cater for much larger women, which proved very popular.

'But I have to admit I was very surprised when I started receiving phone calls asking for even bigger ones.

'We ship them around the world and, at the moment, New Zealand and Australia are the biggest takers.

'Our customers have been very enthusiastic and have given us help to tweak the design and make the knickers more accommodating.'

Retired insurance broker Dianne set up the Big Bloomers Company with daughter Laura, 46,in April after spotting the gap in the market.

Within weeks they were being contacted by customers begging them to make larger garments.

And now they have launched their 'super-super size' range and have already sold around 100 items since they went on sale last week.

The company, which sends a mail order catalogue to customers, also sells tights and gowns, which uses an incredible six metres of fabric.
