Woman breaks underwear world record
A woman from Seattle has broken the world record for most pairs of underpants worn at once.

Janine Keblish piled on 252 pairs of women's underwear to break the record in order to raise money and awareness for her chosen charity.

The cause, called Days For Girls, provides women and girls in Africa with feminine hygiene products.

Ms Keblish's close friend Celeste Mergens started the charity after a trip to an orphanage in Kenya.

"Millions of women all over the world go without, resulting in infection and exploitation and even girls being sold into slavery. They also miss three months of education each year, just for lack of hygiene," she explained.

The money raised by Ms Keblish's successful record attempt will help create and distribute washable hygiene kits across Africa.

Another recent underwear world record was set by 2,270 men and women who stripped to their pants in the world's largest parade of people in their undercrackers.ADNFCR-1412-ID-801293986-ADNFCR
