Men with thin legs who fret over how their pins look in kilts can now "beef" themselves up with special implants dubbed the "Wonderbra for socks".

The chicken-fillet sock implants have been designed by a German man who sold more than 300 sets during a recent beer festival in Munich.

Herbert Lipah said: "I created them for a customer who wanted to wear lederhosen but worried women would laugh. My sparrow-legged customer left looking like Arnold Schwarzenegger."
