.....I'm the next lingerie model! I got some very exciting new yesterday. Marks and Spencers contacted Breakthrough breast cancer to ask me if I would model for their post-surgery lingerie range. Obviously I have said yes to this amazing opportunity. It could not have come at a better time. I had my last bit of reconstructive surgery 2 months ago and am much happier with the way my breast looks. My nipple was way too big and my implant was pushing itself up, which is not a natural way a breast normally heads! My amazing surgeon made my nipple smaller and lowered the implant. It looks so much better. Not perfect as it never will be but its definitely the best its ever going to look, so I am very happy. Being asked to model for M&S's post-surgery lingerie range is going to be a huge confidence boost for me. When I have looked at models in underwear and bikinis I have always thought how lucky they are to have their natural breasts and knowing mine will never be the same again. Doing this will be especially important to me as I would have loved to seen images of a young women who had had breast cancer modelling for something as big as M&S. Personally I do not think there is a big enough post-surgery ranges in any lingerie company. I'm not even sure who else does one apart from M&S. I still can not wear under wired bras as they hurt too much and struggle to find wireless bras that are supportive and pretty! I ended up going into a maternity shop and buying 2 maternity bras because they were pretty and supportive. Maybe that's what I should do, design my own range! Watch this space!!
