Hypergiant [See Link] is only a classification for stars with tremendous mass and luminosity, showing signs of a very high rate of mass loss. It is a "loose" term for the most massive stars found, even though there are more precise definitions.

The largest known star in this class is VY Canis Majoris [See Link] which is about 2,000 times larger than our own Sun. [See Link]
