Trainee police constable Sophia Adams has been crowned the winner of Curvy Kate’s worldwide lingerie model search, Star in a Bra.
Selected by an online vote, the JJ cup winner from Northolt, West London beat over 1000 entries to the top spot.
The 21-year old will star in Curvy Kate’s summer shoot, enjoy an all-expense paid trip to the Mediterranean for two with £1000 spending money, be awarded a year-long modelling contract with Bridge Models and also be given a year’s supply of Curvy Kate lingerie.
Adams, who has become the first size 16, JJ cup girl to model lingerie professionally, said she had low self-esteem growing up, as she was severely bullied for her curves at school, but entered the Star in Bra competition after learning to accept herself.
“I entered star in a bra because I finally have the confidence and would love to model for Curvy Kate," she said. "I used to have so many body hang ups, hated my size and wanted to change myself. But as I get older I’m realising it’s all about self-love. I’m a size 16, I look after myself and I’m happy the way I am, and I just want to show other women that that’s ok. It’s all about understanding and embracing that we all come in different shapes and sizes.”
