Shapely Scottish beauty, Laura Ann Smith from Bonnybridge has been voted the face and bust of fuller figured brand Curvy Kate. Proving she had the confidence to look gorgeous in lingerie, Laura impressed the public with her natural curves and double H cup assets. She will now model for a year with Curvy Kate DD – J cup lingerie and become the face and bust of the brand.
The National Star in a Bra competition, run by online retailer Brastop.com, encourages women who are DD+, charismatic and confident to enter. Going against the grain, Brastop.com were unsatisfied with the images supplied by many brands as they were unrealistic and not a true representation of a fuller figure. Brastop wanted to show their average 34G customer exactly how a bra would look if worn by a real DD+ woman.
In it’s third year the competition has found several successful fuller figured models who their customers can relate and buy from with more understanding of how the bra will look. Laura Ann Smith will join the previous winners who range from F to HH cups and model with the brand under a year contract, also winning a year’s supply of lingerie.
Laura Ann came from a family of larger busted girls with her sister undergoing a breast reduction in 2007. It’s this that pushed her at 11pm on the closing night of the competition to send her photos in. ‘I want to make women of all shapes and sizes aware that they should love what they have been blessed with.’
She continues ‘I think it’s a great competition because people have got to realise the curvy figure is normal. Every day women are looking at these pictures. Not everyone is a size 6 and at the end of the day you want to see what it would look like on your own body type, not something unachievable.’
Brastop specialises in discount lingerie and swimwear for the fuller bust from D to K cups and back sizes from 28-44”. Brands including Freya, Curvy Kate, Fantasie, Panache, Ultimo and Wonderbra are all available at up to 70% off normal retail prices.
