Olympia Valance is comfortable womens black lingerie showing some skin on Neighbours, but she didn’t always feel her curves were “sexy”.
The 22-year-old has revealed that she had doubts about doing a lingerie shoot, the kind her sister Holly used to do regularly.
“I’ve always said that I would never do it, never do lingerie modelling. Ever since I was little,” Olympia told The Daily Telegraph. “My sister did a lot of it, and I just said to myself, ‘Nup, that’s not what I want to do’. Even when I was modelling I didn’t want to do lingerie modelling.”
But she changed her mind after meeting with UK brand Gossard.
“I do not have a lingerie body, I’ve got bigger legs, and a bum and boobs, and I said to them, ‘I don’t think this is right’,” Olympia recalled. “And they said they wanted real bodies, and I was like, OK. Actually putting the lingerie on I felt so beautiful and sexy, probably better than I’ve ever felt, which is bizarre. Then the photos came out and I loved them, and I don’t regret a thing.”
The star added: “The Kardashians do such great things for different body types and have changed what people find beautiful now, I love it. Having bigger thighs and arse, I now find that sexy, and I never used to. Not that I want to take away from girls who are naturally thin. Everyone’s beautiful in their own way.”
Olympia, who plays Paige Smith on Neighbours, recently revealed to TheFIX that she lost 20 kilos in the past four years by changing her diet.
“I struggled with my weight quite a bit when womens black lingerie I was younger,” she told us earlier this month. “I dieted and then got back on the wagon…then I found a really great eating pattern and stopped eating so much bread and pasta.”
