Busting through life with Lucy, 31

Busting through life with Lucy, 31
Welcome to the second instalment of our first blog series "busting through life" where we talk to wonderful women who have been wearing peBe sports bras about their relationship with exercise, their boobs and sports bras!

One of our core beliefs is that there is great power in supporting others and having a laugh together. That is why we will always look to connect with you all, sharing stories, and wanting to hear yours.

Over to the inspiring Lucy -

Were you an active child and did that change as you grew up?
I’ve always been sporty. As a child I was a tomboy - always climbing trees. I loved gymnastics and trying as many different sports as I could. When I was 13, I very suddenly grew big boobs. The boys used to ask me if I’d had a boob job. I couldn’t find a decent bra and used to have to wear two sports bras, one on top of the other, with a tight top over that. If I forgot to take it all in to school, I had to sit out.

What about now?
I’m a fitness class fanatic. I love boxing, areal yoga, dance and hula hooping. You definitely need a good bra for that! If I don't exercise or move my body for a few days, I really feel the difference. When I was younger, it used to be all about the aesthetic, but for the last few years, and particularly through the pandemic, it’s been more about my mental health. I run my own PR business and love to get out for a run to keep me sane.


How important is a good bra?
With 32FF boobs you need a good bra! With peBe I feel really balanced. It doesn’t pull on my shoulders and gives me all the support I need.

Do you have a sporting hero or inspiration?
My dad passed away four years ago. He had a rare condition called Amyloidosis and also cancer. Whenever I exercise, I think of him. He was a PE teacher and a really sporty guy, so I’ve been using fitness to raise money in his memory. This year I’ve signed up to the Brighton 10K. Through sponsored runs and a 26-mile walk with Mum in March, we will raise £10,000 for charity.

Lucy wears a 34FF as she wanted a little more room on her underband.
