The never-ending bag of tricks from Mary Poppins has a 2019 update: Not surprisingly, in the form of a pair of tiny denim shorts with the capacity to hold everything one might need for a festival or concert.

This modern day Poppins is known in the Twittersphere as Liz Nicole. Understood to be from Florida, Nicole posted a picture of herself in cream high-waisted shorts, followed by a second picture with a pocket rolled out to expose its impressive capacity to store essentials.

Nicole demonstrated how three pouches could be filled with money, sunglasses and make-up - and it looks like there's still room for more.

One Twitter user said: "This is a brilliant invention!"

While another added: "Maybe I'd stop losing things with these."

She sparked some confusion by captioning the image "My Mum Made It", prompting her followers to request Nicole's mother make them a pair too.

She has since clarified that "My Mum Made It" is actually the brand name.

The brand's official Instagram page shared a story commenting on the success of Nicole's post: "You really sent my shorts viral! I love you guys".
