The world’s largest bra has been sold for £3,600 to raise money for charity.

The piece of underwear - a 1,360B cup - was purchased by casino company Golden Palace via auction website eBay for an amount more than triple event agency Chillisauce.co.uk, which posted the item, was hoping to make from the sale.

The auction was organised for raise money for charity Breast Cancer Campaign, and Chillisauce.co.uk’s director Adrian Simpson is delighted with the sale.

He said: “We’re just really happy that so much money has been raised for Breast Cancer Campaign.

“The fact that it’s going to a very interesting new home is a fantastic bonus for all of us who have been involved in the project for the last year.”
