As an expert in the field of body confidence, Dr Linda is all too familiar with the devastating impact that low self-esteem can have.
We've been working with Dr Linda to understand the complex issue of body confidence and craft our Best Shape campaign which was born as a result of our desire to help women find lingerie that fits, flatters, fills them with confidence and makes them feel fabulous, inside and out.
