I wore this outfit to work in the week, as it was a neutral palette I needed my underwear to not show through my clothes. This did not mean however that I was happy to wear a boring nude t-shirt bra and nude granny pants, or a thong for that matter as I just don’t find them comfortable. So the Freya Lacey set was perfect, nude and not visible under my clothes but still pretty enough to wear and feel attractive in, from underwear up, rather than just from the clothes on the outside who were hiding a ugly secret beneath.
This week Freya featured all over the country in the advertisements at the X Factor auditions.
The day started off with a downpour – I felt very sorry for those poor contestants and audience members queuing up in the rain!) but soon brightened up so I could get snap happy to show you all what the O2 arena and the auditions are really like.
Taken from outside the O2 Arena – poor wet audience members queuing… at least the sun came out eventually!
As if we need another complaint about female body image in the media.
Today I came across two articles in particular which have again got me thinking about that ugly term ‘Real Women’.
The Daily Mail Online posted an article about Kelly’s lovely beach bod and I was dismayed by the sheer amount of negative comments by readers which slate her beneath The Mail’s complimentary article.
I wasn’t lying in my bio when I said I am a ‘habitual Freya collector’. After a big clearout of old and ill-fitting bras to send off to charity in aid of the Breast Talk campaign or the Bra Chain World Record attempt, I’ve noticed that most of my ‘keeper’ bras are Freyas, not only because they are bloomin’ lovely but also because they last and last.
Here is the entirety of my Freya collection (est 2007!)
