Only designing dresses for women who’ve had breast implants makes life a little harder for the rest of us who’ve allowed gravity to play its part.
That’s something I found out recently as I attempted to shoe-horn myself into a strapless bridesmaid’s dress.
It turns out the Americans expect their ladies to be super-inflated and make their dresses accordingly – with big gaping areas for over-spilling chests.
Tough luck if you’re over 30 and not enhanced because that space where your beach ball-style breasts should sit will be filled with... nothing.
As I attempted to fish out my real chest which, unshackled, is prone to slippage, I realised us UK ladies have a choice.
Get some silicone in pronto – or find a hoist.
