    New Zealanders are getting bigger than ever before and everything from hospitals to grave-diggers are being forced to adapt to super-size bodies.

    New Zealanders' expanding waistlines are fuelling a demand for plus-size goods and services.

    With half of the adult population now either overweight or obese, what used to be considered "normal" has suddenly become a whole lot bigger.

    Hospitals, airlines, retailers and even grave diggers are finding they have to move with the times. And sales of 'he bras' - support garments for men with plus-size chests - are on the rise.
