Lingerie love – a legacy 0

I have had a fascination with lingerie since my teenage years.

At the age of 16 I worked in the lingerie section of  a retailers for Saturday job and I adored the different designs, shapes, cups and fits I suddenly discovered. I think my weekend wages were ploughed back into my new found passion but I was armed with new knowledge about well fitted bras, and far too much experience of older ladies and gravity….Later, for an A level art project I looked into the history of underwear, and the love of lingerie has stayed with me since those days.

I have always been well endowed since a young age – I was the girl in school with big boobs at getting my bra straps pinged by the boys and avoiding the swim days to keep my figure hidden. I loved to wear baggy clothes ( hey, it was the 90′s and I was an indie kid) but, sadly, spent a lot of time hiding my figure as I felt embarrassed at the attention my chest seemed to get.  At 18 I was  32DD with 26″ waist – how I would LOVE to have those stats these days – I am a 32 F and size 12 waist/hips, not an easy combination for dress sizes I can tell you.

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.

A big hello and thank you! 0

Welcome to Fitting Talk, the new and exciting blog for Freya.

I am Kerry and I am the Freya blog star (I am blushing even writing that) and will be talking to you on a regular basis along with three other fabulous bloggers, Cheryl, Kerry G and Jo about everything from lingerie, lifestyle to looking good!

Freya feel as I do, that it is important to not only provide information and encourage conversation and debate about all issues ‘breastage’ but to also give you a platform as a reader to comment, feedback and be a part of it all, to the depths of all that is under your clothes! In addition we will just talk girly! (We may however give some hints and tips to men when wanting to buy a nice gift for their better half). More
