I fell in love with Freya when… 1

The ‘Blog Star entrants were invited to write 40 words describing when and where their love affair with Freya began. As a die hard Freya lover, I asked myself this same question – when did my addiction begin?

Quite simply, I fell in love with Freya when I realised the shortcomings of other lingerie available on the high street. I am more than willing to sincerely sing their praises as I’ve found that they have really been a staple in my lingerie collection for as long as I care to remember. As a teen I was fitted in various different high street stores but never correctly and even though I trusted what a ‘professional’ told me (it’s their job, right?!) I never felt right. After deciding to leave chain bra stores forever after struggling with them for so long I came across some pretty Freya bras in a department store (the red Jessica and the oyster Arabella styles to be exact) and was instantly drawn to how darn-right cute they were. Although at first I was put off by the sheer cups (I thought to myself: how will they hold everything in? Will I look odd in them? Change of habit is always hard to break!) I tried them and was amazed by the improvement of fit and comfort simply by changing to a quality bra.

Well good afternoon everyone!

I am thrilled to be involved with Freya as an expert blogger; I firmly believe women are the experts of their own comfort, fit and enjoyment of underwear so it’s great to be on board here to talk about my experiences with lingerie from the viewpoints of both a fashion industry blogger and as a real woman with curves!

By way of introduction – I am a 34 year old mum of twin girls, Eva and Mia, who are nearly 2 years old, which makes for a busy life! I run my own business Cherry Sorbet Creative, I write for a number of on and offline publications, I edit blogzine The Scoop and you can read my personal blog over at The Dexterous Diva. More
