A few weeks ago, I was bored at my computer (nothing unusual there) and came across a competition on the Freya Facebook page where you could enter to be a blogger for them. Freya make gorgeous lingerie for the more…well endowed… lady, and I first came across them last year when The Wife took me to be measured properly at John Lewis.
I’m sure I’ve told you this story before, the Wife decided that I had to be measured because she has a bit of an obsession with boobs (when yours are a crazy huge size, you become obsessed apparently!) and marched me into the changing rooms where a little old lady (who scarily reminded me of my old maths teacher – seriously uncool when you’re standing in a changing room in an illfitting bra) measured me up and told me I was about 4 cup sizes bigger than I thought. No wonder all my bras were illfitting!
At the time, I’d assumed that all bras over a D cup were – well, like this:
Not in the least bit sexy or pretty. More the sort of thing that my mum would have chosen. Eugh.
However, maths-teacher-bra-fitter went off and brought back some Freya bras which were gorgeous!
The original question on the Freya Blog Star competition was “I fell in love with Freya when…” and you had 40 words or less to write it in. I wrote the following:
