Looks like the size goes up to about a 94 waist/110 hip for men and a 73 waist/105 hip for women (all in cm) for the version shown in the video. But then it's a shaper, not a miracle maker, I guess, as it only gives you a beer per week of walking in them 1.5 hours daily. I wonder if that counts the calories burnt walking without the underwear, or if it only counts the "extra" calories burnt.

The guy in the video was a lot bigger about 10 years ago (by Japanese standards, anyway). If Wikipedia is to be believed, he went from about 110kg in 2008 to under 80 in less than 2 years. I doubt the loss of weight is due to the underwear, but it makes him a reasonable spokes model, I guess. I couldn't find a good full-body shot in the first results from google ^_^...
