Model aims to create perfect exercise bra.

Byline: OWEN HUGHES Business Correspondent

A MODEL and fitness fanatic who struggled to find a bra to support her after breast enlargement surgery has set up a company to find 'the perfect bra'.

Hannah Sadowska, 33, of Wrexham, has been seeking comfort while out running after breast enlargement surgery six years ago left her with a 32G bust.

Lacking the confidence to go it alone she turned to Glyndw r University for help, joining its new degree in entrepreneurship.

Now she is on the verge of realising her ambition with the start of online sports bra business, Little Miss Run Riot.

Hannah believes products sold through the company will appeal to women with breast enlargements who face potentially hazardous situations, such as those in the police force, fire service or Armed Forces.

Hannah said: "When I came to the university I thought I love my fitness, I love running but I've never managed to find myself the correct sports bra since undergoing the enlargement, so I thought I'd like to start an online business with a couple of other students.

"There are now an awful lot of ladies in the armed forces now who have had breast enlargement surgery and if they are in a vulnerable situation or combat, unless they've got that protection underneath they're leaving themselves vulnerable to things like ruptures and blood clots.

"So, my focus for Little Miss Run Riot is these professionals, as well as girls who are looking for extra support. I've found two other students who have been more than willing to join in the business venture and we're hoping to launch the first products in less than six months' time. We set out to create the perfect bra and that's what we intend to do."

Hannah, a single mum, was a fitness trainer for seven years before starting to work as a model in 2007. She gave up her modelling career last year.

She said: "In 2005 I got to the stage of what do I want to do with my life now. I tried a few sales jobs and sitting behind a desk all day but it bored me stupid. It was at that point that I sensed an opportunity. I thought if I changed my appearance slightly I could get work as a promotional model, and that's when I decided to go from a 32c to 32g bust.

"Last year I decided to step away from it all, as a single parent, and focused my attentions on starting my own business," added Hannah.

"Without the support of the university I'd never be in the position I'm in now, almost ready to start my business."
