Curvy ladies bare all for calendar
STAFF and customers at a Whitefield fashion shop threw aside their inhibitions and clothes to bare all for a charity calendar.
Jo Frost, owner of Topsy Curvy in Bury Old Road, invited her store manager and nine of her customers to take part in the saucy calendar in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.
Jo, aged 27, and manager Charlotte Ogden, aged 23, are Miss May and Miss June and were determined to celebrate women of all shapes and sizes. Jo, from Swinton, said: “We decided to do a calendar which included curvy girls from a size 12 right through to a size 28 whose heights went from 5 ft to 6ft 2 in. We wanted to prove any woman at any size can look good naked and have the confidence to show this.
“The whole experience was amazing — we made loads of new friends and all felt liberated and like we could take on the world!”
The store opened in March this year, stocking glamorous clothes in a size 16 through to a size 32.
Jo added: “Charlotte and I decided to raise funds and awareness for Macmillan Cancer Support as we have both seen the support and commitment the nurses provide. “ Whitefield beauty therapist Lorraine Tomkin, aged 40, features in the calendar as Miss January. Lorraine, of Thatch Leach Lane, said: “I agreed — I was so nervous during the shoot but I loved every minute of it. ”
The calendar is available at topsycurvy.co.uk for £10, with £4 of that for Macmillan Cancer Support.
