For many years, the USA has had the largest bra of any country with a whopping AAA bra size. (When measuring the bra size of a country, you measure from above the nipple, so AAA is the largest size, CCC is the smallest).
But recent cash problems have led to downsizing, trimming and cuts, all of which has affected the national bosom. The Global Bra-Fitter, who keeps a bra size of all countries, is due to visit the USA this week to see whether any official adjustments need to be made.
The USA's bra is kept in a warehouse in Nevada. If it was a human bra it would be an enormous 386ZZZZ. It is made from white silk, and is underwired with a normal back-fastening strap. France's bra on the other hand (also AAA) is a chic frilly red number with no shoulder straps and a front-fastener. Britain's bra (AAA) is grey and contains "chicken fillets".
Ultimately, the USA will have to hope that it maintains its size, or it may go bust.
