Liz McClaron

By the time I arrived at the press launch in the swanky suite of the Ham Yard Hotel, Atomic Kitten’s Liz McClarnon had slung off her shoes and was right at home nattering about her new lingerie collection with all the other stylists and bloggers.


Comfort is of the element for Liz. Her aim, she told me when launching her debut lingerie range for Fashion World was to produce a beautiful supportive collection that women of all sizes would feel comfortable wearing.


And this range definitely embraces all women whatever their size. Being a more voluptuous lady myself I was practically whooping for joy when I heard the range goes from size 12 to 32 and bras from sizes 34B to 50DD. Woo Hoo!


Liz explained, “In the past I’ve been so many different sizes. My weight would yoyo from a size 8 to a size 16. So I understand. I didn’t want to launch a range full of tiny G strings for skinny minnies. I worked closely with the team to create pieces that were covering and flattering for real women. Lingerie that was feminine and sexy too!”

After the success of her swimwear range last season for Fashion World, Liz has enjoyed getting even more involved with the brand.

“I want it all to look perfect. Sometimes we have meetings about the lingerie and loungewear that have included breakfast, lunch and dinner!”


The lovely thing about Liz is that she is so enthusiastic and friendly. I can see why Fashion World enjoy working with her. She genuinely takes an interest in people around her.This is so refreshing in the world of celebs. I once spent an entire day in the studio styling a ‘celebrity’ and wasn’t even asked my name! Awkward. So there I was on my hands and knees perfecting her look – smoothing down her knickers ensuring no VPL, putting my hand up her skirt to straighten her tucked in shirt and taping up her bosoms to make sure she had the perfect plunge. Well, call me old fashioned, but anyone playing around with my cleavage has to be on first name terms… .


Liverpudlian Liz has enough time for everyone. She talked me through her entire lingerie and loungewear collection piece by piece. I’ve already got my eye on the tartan balcony bra and high cut knicker set and the beautiful bird print bodyshaper looks like it might hide a multitude of sins…


So there’s no stopping this Atomic Kitten, swimwear, loungewear, lingerie. Whatever next?
