CEO Emily Bendell is lining up fresh deals with other retail partners and is planning a publicity blitz to support sales at new outlets.

Bluebella will exhibit at CURVEXPO in New York – a three-day event starting on July 31 – and showcase its latest fashion collections, a brand new hosiery range and MORE by Bluebella – a range of lingerie for fuller-busted women.

Bendell said: “We want to make a big splash in America. We’ve always been a brand that likes to be noticed and really want get our name out there.

“Britain has a population of 64 million compared to America’s 320 million – that is five times as many customers,” she continued.

“So it is a huge opportunity for us now that we have got a foothold in some of America’s most iconic retailers.”

American customers have been able to buy Bluebella via ASOS for the last two years.
