Delving Beyond the Wardrobe

Delving Beyond the Wardrobe 0

Hello Freya Fans! Great to meet you all and so excited to be here blogging about the fabulous-ity of Freya, as one of their Winners of the 2012 Blog Star 2 Competition.

I am thrilled to be part of ‘Team Fitting Talk’ as a personal stylist and shopper based in the North West who has spent the last 5 years telling any woman who will listen about how a well-fitting bra can transform the look of any outfit, and go a long way to boosting confidence, in addition to boosting other more obvious assets!

I’m Nicola Cupples, a 31 year old gal living in Cheshire otherwise known as Style Companion who has quite a serious obsession with clothes and wardrobes – other people’s that is! Yes as a Personal Shopper my ‘office’ is actually inside other people’s wardrobes or a changing room somewhere, where I continue my mission to boost the confidence of women across the land by helping them to rediscover their style or indeed find new inspiration.

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.
