Freya PR Assistant Invites You Into Her World 0

Fashion Books

I have been itching to write a blog post for years, but I never found the time or the right words! After nearly a year working with Freya, I have found a passion for wearing, writing and learning about lingerie. The thing is I am a 32G and working at Freya is a dream come true! So I wanted to let you all in on my Freya journey and what better way than on the Freya blog?

Finding Freya
When I was in my teens I found lingerie and boobs a taboo subject – something which I blushed at and the thought of a bra fitting was scary. I came to Eveden in 2009 as a university placement student, wearing a 38DD greying bra. As soon as I sat at my desk, I could feel the eyes of my colleagues burning into my chest and sure enough I was ushered down to Freya design where I was fitted, only to find that I was a 32G! Hoorah! Since that fitting I have never looked back, I have become somewhat of a preacher when it comes to lingerie fitting – I tell anyone and everyone. The funny thing is, no one ever yawns when you are offering bra fitting advice or lingerie tips as it is something that women love to be educated about. Once I have told them how a good fitting bra should look and feel, I then whip out my secret weapon – the latest Freya brochure and now all of my friends and family are hooked!

Turning 30!

Turning 30! 1

Next month I am going to celebrate my 30th birthday. Yes you heard it right the big 3..0 is descending upon me. It has got me thinking about a lot of things.

The problem is I am not fearful of turning 30, I just don’t want to look 40! Whilst many women at this age are at the peak of their careers and enjoying nights out in the city, having date nights and lavish meals out, I on the other hand have opted for a different life.

It was never supposed to be that way. I had always envisioned the above, but you see, love has a lot to answer for and when I fell for my husband at the whipper snapper age of 18, I did not contemplate marriage by 22 and three children by 26. Life has a funny way of not being as planned as you had expected.

Freya Active and netball love 0

Now don’t laugh, but I used to LOVE netball and played goal defence in school…back when I was tall for my year. Given that I am 5’3″  I am hardly huge, but for a while there I was not the smallest hobbit and used to love jumping around in my netball skirt with the ladies.

Netball is one sport I loved in school. I used to hate running with a passion (which is why this event meant so much to me when I did it!), so I am really pleased to see that Freya are partnering England Netball with their fabulous range of sports wear Freya Active, which I wore during my Team Bangs on the Run training.

Big Boobs V’s Small Boobs Part 1 – Bring it on!

Big Boobs V’s Small Boobs Part 1 – Bring it on! 0

I went away for a girl’s hen night weekend a few weeks ago and I was discussing the merits of my smaller boobs since having children. The girls were not quite convinced and said they loved my bigger boobs, but having been both full busted and now should we stay cough ahem petit (actually strained teabags but that’s what bra’s are for hey?) I can definitely see the advantages and disadvantages to both sides of the fence. So I decided to put it to twitter and these were the responses. This week we are going to look at the advantages and disadvantages of the bigger breasted lady!

Advantages of Big boobs (Taken from things people said on twitter!)

@_Johnsonbabies  I never had to wonder what ‘chicken fillets’ were? – True, you never have to worry about extra padding or volume with an ample bosom!

@mummyandmonkey They look fantastic in certain tops and clothes fit better – I agree, in the days when my boobs were bigger, they looked fab in cross over and square cut tops as the cleavage was shown off to its best advantage! Some people however with big boobs actually find themselves to be out of proportion.

Can wear dresses that are low cut – Plunging necklines don’t really work unless your boobs are fake as there is little natural uplift and actually it can look a bit too much in your face!

@innocentcharmer Feel attractive womanlier – I can understand this viewpoint. Curves in the right places can make you feel grand!

Clothes fit better – Not always but you certainly can fill clothes out better on the top half. Some people with big boobs actually find themselves to be out of proportion!

Body looks more in proportion – only if your boobs evenly match your hips!

@MummyLion Attracts the boys – Yes they do! I no interest in me at school until my boobs grew overnight (so much so, people rumoured I had had a boob job at 16! Yeah, right!) And Valentine’s that year was quite busy!

@Needaphone Get to front of line in pubs – It is easier to get served. They are noticed more!

@MummyLion could work as a stripper or a Topless model! – He he, Yes, work is available but I fear in my case you have to have the face to go with it!

 

Big boobs v's small boobs!

Big boobs have great advantages!
