She began by wrapping herself in clingfilm, but after a red-faced moment at a friends wedding she decided wearing kitchen equipment under her clothes wasn't for her and if she wanted a practical solution to her problem she'd have to make it herself.
"I felt awful about my body and tried everything, dieting, exercise, everything. I even used to lock myself in the bathroom and wrap myself up in the clingfilm to try and shift the weight," she told The Scottish Daily Star.
"I think my husband thought I was crazy. I wore the clingfilm under my dress to a wedding but my mum asked me what the strange noise was," she said. "I didn't realise it was so obvious and loud - it was very embarrassing."
