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.
