Hold the horses — Australian model, actress and TV presenter Annalise Braakensiek has just launched her own eco-friendly line of ‘plus’ size lingerie.
‘Bra’akensiek’s bras will specialize in C-F cups and will be launched in August, reports theage.com.au.
“It’s green,” explained Braakensiek about her brand “Annalise Exclusive for Bras ‘n Things”.
“No toxic ink, organic cotton, organic bamboo, sustainable produce, the swingtags are recycled cardboard and even attached with organic twine. As eco-friendly as I can possibly make it. Looking after girls with bigger boobs and looking after the environment at the same time.”
So what inspired Braakensiek to create her own line?
“It’s been a dream of mine since I started modeling and a lot of my modeling was in Italy with beautiful brands like La Perla,” the gorgeous model said.
“So I was wearing these beautiful garments but they only go up to a maximum D cup and I’m an E cup. It was so frustrating.”
“It’s something that’s been needed for so long,” she says matter-of-factly.
“I started working on this three years ago. There were no fashionable large sizes. I think it’s great now women of all sizes can get lingerie that suits their personality.”
Was the 36-year-old bombshell think twice before stripping off for the photo shoot?
“Oh, darling, this is what I do. I’ve been getting my kit off for years.”
