Our second interview of the day comes courtesy of Amy Coulstock!
I’m Amy, I’m 21 and I’m from South East of London. I’m a size 32E and dress size 12, I have been through phases of watching what I eat to slim down, but then I decided I eating chocolate was far more satisfying than wearing clothes that are a size smaller!! After hopping my way through different jobs and courses at college from coffee shop to beauty therapist I’m now settled and have been working as a part time nanny for nearly a year now, which more than satisfies my creative side with all the paper and pva glue we get through every day!
I’m extremely girly and if it comes in pink, I’ve either got it or I want it! My bedroom still looks like that of a 5 year old despite my attempts to add a more mature touch, oops! People tend to think I’m quite shy as I’m not often the one to be talking loudly in front of others, but that’s just my normal personality, I’m more of a listener than a talker. Saying that, one of my biggest irritations is when people try to ‘bring me out of my shell’, argh!
I really love quiet time to myself when I drag out my entire craft chest and sit for hours at a time hand making cards for my friends & family. In general I just love the simple things in life, like duvet days, picnics in the park and going for coffee with my mum.
Sounds like you’re really creative Amy so your job as a nanny sounds perfect! We expect you to be constantly covered in glitter. Why did you decide to enter?
I’ve known about the Star in a Bra search for a few years now and I was always tempted me to enter each time the competition opened every year but didn’t feel quite good enough about myself at the time. I have always admired underwear models as they are very feminine and elegant, but my 5”5, size 12 self has always seemed miles apart from the likes of the professionals.
However the Curvy Kate requirements are aimed at the nations real women, and give people the chance to feel beautiful in your own right, which is exactly how it has made me feel so far and to be handpicked for the top 30 is absolutely amazing, I’m so thrilled it feels like a dream?!
Well we’re glad you’ve finally entered Amy! We have one last question for you, and I’m afraid it’s the ‘nasty’ one, sorry! Why do you think people should vote for you?
I don’t really know why people should vote for me? I’m just a normal down to earth girly girl who would absolutely love to be given such a fabulous opportunity. Being chosen for top 30 amongst so many other beauties is already a huge confidence boost to which I am forever grateful; I’ll definitely be telling that to my grand kids when I’m older! I’m not perfect, but I’m certainly proud to have a lovely curvy body shape especially as it is becoming increasingly popular and has created many idols for women over the generations, from Marilyn Monroe to Kim Kardashian to maybe… Amy Coulstock?!
Good luck Amy!
So has Amy won your vote, or are you still undecided? We have a few days left of interviews and about a week to go until voting closes, so don’t panic!
Next up we hear from Stephanie Middleton.
