BRAVO; Melinda's new Bhs underwear range for the curvy woman.

Byline: OLLIE PICTON-JONES Fashion Director

IT'S been years since Melinda Messenger's last modelling assignment - and look what we've been missing.

The 32-year-old has been off carving out a career as a TV presenter as well as having two children.

But now she's back as the new face of Bhs's lingerie campaign to promote underwear for the more curvaceous woman. This is her first major modelling role since having sons Morgan, three, and one-year-old Flynn.

Melinda has regained the figure that made her famous and looks stunning wearing everything from corsets and basques to bras and briefs in the Bhs Voluptuous range.

The star, who co-presents Loose Lips chat show on Living TV, said: "I am a size eight with a 32DD bust so I really do know how hard it is to find beautiful lingerie to a FF.

"Normally, larger sizes only come in boring black and white so it's great to find so many shades and patterns.

"My favourites are the plunge bra and briefs in floral and animal prints. Having children doesn't mean you stop wanting to look good. And they even sell pretty basques in my size. I want to buy the whole range."

VOLUPTUOUS is available in sizes 8-20, from 34C -40FF, plus 32DD-F. All bras featured pounds 18, thongs and briefs pounds 7, lace suspender basque pounds 25. Selected lingerie available from all Bhs stores from July 1. (Call 0207 262 3288).
