But, speaking to Grazia this week, the model said she never wore a bra until she was 16.
She said: 'I only got my first bra when I was about 16 - I was still in thermal vests up until then, I was completely flat chested. Then all of a sudden I grew these humongous breasts.'
Now the face - and body - of lingerie brands Intimissimi and Ultimo, Peter Crouch's wife spends much of time wowing in just her underwear and has developed quite a penchant for the item.

The mum-of-one is currently in Paris while her husband was scoring for Stoke against Newcastle.
Having taken home the Strictly Come Dancing title in 2013, Abbey has set her sights on another BBC One reality TV crown.

'She impressed the judges with her cooking and had a real skill with the dough. She had a lot of laughs with Jonathan but it was Mary she took a real shine to.
