My First Brassiere

At 15, Barbara Deeks is already appearing in the West End, but she isn't as confident as she seems. Just four feet ten and a half, Barbara's embarrassed by her developing physique, and while the local boys are fascinated by her bosom, she is confused by it. When a stern wardrobe mistress publicly embarrasses her by trying to strap down her chest to make her look like the 10-year-old she's playing, Barbara goes home devastated. Realising her little girl is growing up, Barbara's mum takes her to be measured for her first bra... Barbara enters the shop a girl, and emerges a woman.


Produced by Lovely Day.
