Yes but you'd have to shop in the US to find lingerie that would fit a vehicle.
A few years ago I wandered into an outsize clothing store in Itaewon, Seoul, which seemed designed to serve American servicemen and their families. Even accounting for the fact that the armed forces of any nation tend to be on the larger end of the size spectrum and that street fashions are often worn baggy, some of the things they stocked were preposterous: my wife, my daughter and I could have worn some of the tops and trousers simultaneously.
Until that time, I had literally never considered the notion of sizes above (and notably above) XXL. I suppose that I was conceptually aware that somebody might need them, but they have to be seen to be believed.
