“What underwear do you have on...?” He asks.

”Erm?” *Checks* “Ooh! It’s quite a fancy one actually! It’s one I bought from ASOS, that’s sort of long-line balconette style...” 

”Fancy doing a quick shoot?” He suggests...

I should add that the ‘he’ mentioned above is my best friend, work wife and photographer James Barley — and yes, he’s gay.

The lighting in his Dalston apartment is soft, casting shadows on the crinkles in the bedding I arrange myself on, is a pretty pale duck egg blue, and strangely enough, it complements the teal tones of my underwear rather perfectly!

There’s a wall of windows facing out onto the back of some other flats. It’s the kind of spot where you can look out over the rooftops of east London, glimpsing snippets of the lives lived by others, as they go about their business, unaware of us going about our funny little shoot.

 The great thing about Hunkemöller is that they cater for bigger boobs, without having to resort to ugly parachute size brassieres! This one is a 30E, so for girls with DD+ boobies, you’ll be pleased to know they have various styles in sizes up to 40G! Hallelujah!

 “I know! Let’s go for the wet look!!” James shrieks! Spritzing my hair with salt spray. I kinda like it!

I love the unusual strap detailing on the longer-line brassiere. It’s almost certainly order corset like at the front with boning and lace.
