Makeshift Mask : A curvaceous mum has shared photographs of her hilariously unsuccessful attempt at transforming her bra into a makeshift face mask.
In the midst of the coronavirus outbreak, mum-of-one Gemma Harman, 40, spotted a new online trend that showed how women could make face masks out of their bras.
This nifty DIY project works by fastening one cup over the nose and mouth, before securing it in position using the bra straps.
Being by her own admission ‘neither young nor slender’ like the women she’d seen modelling the masks, NHS administrator Gemma decided to demonstrate how this might work for a more bodacious bod. And she used her very own 42 FF bra for her craft material.
After attempting to position just one cup over her face, Gemma soon realised she wasn’t going to get anywhere near the same sort of results as smaller-busted ladies.
While the bra-masks she’d seen online merely covered the mouth and nose areas, Gemma’s ample mask swallowed her entire head.
Overcome by hysterical laughter – and blinded by red lace – Gemma asked husband Steve Harman, 45, to take some pics of her which she then uploaded to Facebook.
Although she is classed as a key worker, Gemma is currently in self-isolation as her diabetes means she is more vulnerable to the virus.
Good on Gemma for raising a smile and a giggle at this difficult time.
