Size Xxxxxl Knickers Pound The Street This Week

Girls dressed in extra big knickers, size 12XL to be exact, this week take to the streets throughout New Zealand to launch a new hey sister! campaign and the Summer 04 range.

The Bridget Jones-style knickers, which sport one of the new campaign messages "hey sister! leave the boring underwear to your nana", each fit two girls: one in each leg. They will be on show outside selected Bendon Lingerie, The Warehouse, Rendells, Postie Plus and independent lingerie retail stores this Friday and Saturday in Auckland, Hamilton, Palmerston North, Wellington, Christchurch, Dunedin and Invercargill.

hey sister! offers affordable and comfortable underwear for the young or young at heart. The brand has been one of Australasia's most successful youth brands for more than 10 years.

hey sister! marketing manager Anna Burrett says the enormous knickers are a fun way to bring to life one of messages from the hey sister! 'Take it from us' campaign.

"We've all seen Nana knickers on someone's washing line and cringed. The big knicker activity provides a real contrast to what hey sister! stands for!," says Anna.

Other sisterly-like advice includes: 'Look Rock & Roll, not Country and Western', 'Forget the hit single, have a hit pair', 'Breast enhancement works better without surgery', 'So he doesn't like you, well then he's obviously a loser' and 'The only way to lose 10kg in 10 days is to cut off your arms and legs'.
