Anorak News | Bra-vo!

‘HAPPY birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday dear bra-a, happy birthday to you.

Making her Presence felt

Yes, today we join the Mirror in celebrating the 90th birthday of New York debutante Mary Phelps-Jacobs’ uplifting invention.

And what better way of celebrating than in the company of a heavily airbrushed Kirsty Gallagher showing off her 34D chest and Debenhams’ new Presence range of underwear.

The Mirror looks back over the past nine decades in which the bra has changed from being two silk handkerchiefs tied together to industrial-strength corsetry to flimsy barely-there styles.

To not being there at all in the case of Star stunna Michelle Marsh or the Sun’s Page 3 girl Zoe.

However, Zoe is so much more than a pair of slightly strange shaped breasts. She’s got her opinions and she wants to share them with Sun readers.

Today, for instance, she tells us that she’s not worried by the news that consumer debt in Britain has broken through the £1 trillion mark.

‘If I see a must-have dress,’ she says, ‘I go out and buy it.’

She just doesn’t wear it…’
