World’s biggest bra put up for auction

The world's biggest bra is being auctioned for a breast cancer charity. Although, technically, the record-setting bra isn't even the largest cup available.

How is that possible? Well, the bra, modeled on a 34B T-shirt bra, is actually a "mega 1,360B" that is nearly as big as two tennis courts and weighs as much as 1,800 traditional bras.

"Our aim in auctioning the bra is to build awareness and involvement in Wear It Pink Day as well as raise money for Breast Cancer Campaign in the process," said the director of, Adrian Simpson, whose group is auctioning off the bra.

The bra is being auctioned on eBay with a starting bid of £500 (U.S. $800.30). The auction continues through October 28, 2012.

Along with the actual bra itself, the winning bidder will receive a copy of the Guinness World Records official certificate. The record-setting bra first made headlines in October 2011, when it was suspended from the ITV Tower in London, in conjunction with last year's Wear It Pink Day.
