10 Semi-finalists, who will be announced on 10th March, will be invited to London for a photoshoot and makeover with the Curvy Kate team, before a final public vote.

The overall winner, to be announced on 9th April, will join the brand’s curvy line up at their summer shoot, enjoy an all-expense paid trip to the Mediterranean for two with £1000 spending money and also be awarded a year-long modelling contract with Bridge Models Limited.

Curvy beauty Holly says:

“I’m entering Star in a Bra because I would love to share my confidence with other ladies and help people learn how to love themselves! I’ve always been told I should give this competition a go and this year I thought why not!

“You have to be in it to win it and I have my fingers crossed, plus I’d love to represent such a fantastic company!”

With the public outcry for the use of more realistic images in the media, the Star in a Bra competition champions the use of customer role models and promotes a positive approach to body image, which all women can relate to. Known for their use of non-professional models, Curvy Kate show their fans exactly how their lingerie will look and fit on a variety of body shapes, cementing the message there isn’t one type of ‘perfect body’. With a ‘open to all policy’ and a  message of diversity and fun, Curvy Kate want to find a confident girl with killer curves to model in all their PR and Marketing campaigns.
