As a rockstar new mother, Sheetal believes that one of our (many) superpowers as women is being able to create life. Known fondly as a reliable and supportive friend, Sheetal always helps out others when they need a hand. We asked Sheetal a few questions about motherhood, confidence, and beauty...

What is your name, bra size, and secret power? 

Sheetal Hannagan-Parmar, 16DD, being the rock for my friends when they need me.


What makes you the happiest in life? 

My beautiful new-born baby and my second chance at being a mum again.


Who inspires you the most and why?

My husband, he never takes anything personally, has brought out the more confident person I am today, been super supportive and has been my rock.


Among your friends, what are you best known for?

The reliable, ever knowledgeable and supportive one.


What’s something most people wouldn’t know about you?

Despite looking confident to the outside world, I have been through a lot in a short period of time which in time has shaken my confidence.  


What is your favourite thing about yourself?

I love helping my friends out whenever they need me.


What is your favourite way to get your body moving and grooving?

Play favourite tunes through YouTube and groove with Aroha while trying to get her to sleep.


What do you do for yourself?

I like to get my nails done.


What has been your biggest body struggle?

Being a bigger girl when I got pregnant I was very down about how big I looked so early on, with encouragement from hubby I learnt to embrace it.  


What do you do to boost your body confidence on days you're feeling down about your body?

Put on a sexy bra, I love how a good bra can make you feel sexy.


What's the best thing about being a woman?

Being able to create life, I loved being pregnant and now I love spending time with my baby.


What is beauty to you?

It's about having a kind soul, being there for one another, it's more than what you look like on the outside, it's what's on the inside that counts.


What's the best piece of advice you've heard or received about body confidence?

You only have one body, embrace it, love it....screw what anyone else thinks - if you are happy then that's all that matters!


What is your favourite go-to Rose & Thorne bra, and why?

Before I was pregnant my favourite Rose & Thorne bra was the Perky Power range. I loved the fit and it made me feel sexy. Currently, it is the Jade Maternity bra - it makes me still feel sexy whilst also serving its purpose.


Thanks, Sheetal! You are amazing!
