I thought it would be more of a challenge than it was to cater for every size, but as you're aware of a woman's curves - they're kind of like a race track - you can create something glamorous and beautiful.
It might seem a psychotic, insane thing, quitting a job after I'd built a great career over eight years, but it was a wake-up call. All too often we ignore those, forget that we don't know how long we're here for and that we need to make the most of every moment.
Three women in my family, close relatives, have had breast cancer, and two have died from it, and still I never thought it could happen to me. I didn't even regularly check my breasts.
The doctor said, 'You have a lump on your breast'. Hearing those words was a reminder, a kick up the bum if you like, telling me that life is very unpredictable.
To those out of work, it may seem unfair for someone to complain that they aren't happy with the type of work they are doing, but the more we like our jobs, the better we do them. In the long run, this doesn't just make us happy - it makes businesses more successful and increases employment even further.
Most of my friends are male. And I've known some of them to literally go through mental breakdowns and still not talk about how they feel. Except to me. My shoulders are sodden with the tears of men.
Sometimes gluten is even added to chips, which is really annoying.
I was a model scout. I was never a model, but they just dropped the scout.
I like the fact that Tess Holliday is comfortable in her own skin and loves herself. I think that's a hugely positive message that women of all sizes really need to adopt.

School was horrific for me, constantly an outcast for being a geek.
As a young child, I suffered all sorts of digestive problems and was constantly under the weather.
With the arrogance of youth, I thought, 'I don't drink, don't smoke, I don't do drugs, so why would I get cancer?' The week I spent waiting for the result of the biopsy to see if it was malignant felt like the longest of my life.
We are genuinely in a world that criticises women even when they are going through the biggest physical challenge of their life: pregnancy.
I've had versions of disability my whole life, first with my hearing and then when I couldn't walk for over a year.
After the cancer-free diagnosis, I thought I'd go off and do the things I never did in my teens and twenties. I realised putting things off in life can be dangerous because suddenly you can find you've run out of time.
Shaming people isn't productive. That makes you feel bad about yourself.
I had to learn to accept myself despite the fact that I was seriously underweight. I had to try and feel sexy.
If you're in the public eye, you're constantly scrutinised. I was called too thin and then too fat when I was overweight. It's just a shame those are the reactions people have.
I was born partially deaf and suffered from labyrinthitis, which affected my balance. I had numerous ear infections and spent my childhood in and out of hospital having operations.
Initially I struggled to find gluten-free products, but things have gradually improved, and now retailers like Holland & Barrett - with their new Free From range - are starting to cater for celiacs.
A lot of the things that happened to me came out of the blue, but I'm exactly the same person now as I was when I was sick. I'm still a very optimistic person.
