They're known for their love of double denim and catchy pop tunes, and next week girl group B*Witched are flogging their trademark denim on eBay to celebrate denim turning 140.

"It's great because we're finally doing something productive with all our stage outfits," Edele said. "Instead of leaving them under the bed, people can buy them."

The girls trademark double denim outfits will be available to buy on August 1, with the proceeds going to charity.

"Denim was our signature look. At this stage I feel like we were all born in denim," Keavy laughs. "It was great when we started out because it was like a uniform -- we didn't have to spend ages planning our outfits.

The B*Witched women have all picked several items to sell.

Lindsay's jacket from video Jessie Hold On is up for grabs.

Edele has selected her ensemble from Till I Belong To You, while Sinead and Keavy are saying so long to several tailor-made touring outfits.

"It was nice going through them and trying stuff on. It was quite nostalgic," Sinead said. "

"I didn't think I would be able to fit in to any of it."

"My boobs are about three times bigger now, so I was delighted I could get into the jeans and jackets."

The girls are resolutely proud of their denim heritage.

"We have no regrets wearing denim," Lyndsay says. "But we do regret our hairstyles. We had some seriously dodgy hair cuts."

The girls toured the UK and Ireland earlier this year as part of the Big Reunion tour.
