In 2011 we were asked by media company Chilli Sauce to manufacture the worlds largest bra for Breast Cancer Awareness.
The existing record was held by the Triumph Bra Company in Japan at around 28m.
Our target was to beat this record and make a bra strong enough to be unveiled hanging on the side of the ITV tower on the Thames embankment in London.
We selected a 34B bra (as going for a 36D would have used more than double the material), and the scaled the panels up to the required size.
The finished size was 29.6m hook to hook.
40 times the size of a regular bra
For the bra to be worn by the Statue of Liberty she would need to be twice as tall as she is!
The bra went on to get further publicity when it was sold at auction to a Las Vegas Casino
