Small boob icons: Daisy Ridley
16th November 2017
Daisy Ridley - of big and small screen fame and who plays the heroine, Rey, in the Star Wars Trilogy - is nothing less than a stormtrooper when it comes positive body image and confidence. She soldiers on, despite personal female health issues, to engender body confidence in others too.
She’s another of the Little Women team’s fave small boob icons. Here’s why we love her:
When slammed on social media as: “not portraying real women who have curves.” Daisy hit back, and hit back with all the speed and clout of a light saber.
“Real women’ are all shapes and sizes, all ethnicities, all levels of brave, have families, don’t have families. I am a ‘real woman’ like every other woman in this world.” She posted right back at them.
However, not long after she deleted the post when the meme’s author came in for severe online criticism. She later posted a tempered response where she encouraged her followers to, “celebrate each other, celebrate the ones you love, love yourselves, work hard and be kind.”
Adding that she did not want the “poor person” who’d posted the original meme to come under attack, she continued, “my whole post is about being kind to each other, so please refrain!”
Rey to go, we say!
Daisy Ridley is queen of the flattering neckline for smaller boobed women. Try Little Women’s super-chic Belinda bra to give you a sexy silhouette.
Daisy said. “I will not apologise for how I look, what I say and how I live my life because what’s happening inside is much more important anyway. I am striving to be the best version of myself, even if I stumble along the way. It seems apt I get tagged in this [post] a day after I received misogynistic comments on my International Women’s Day post.”
In these times of endless selfies, online body shaming and of image being perceived as all, many would do well, (or certainly better) to follow Daisy’s example.
Rock a strapless dress just like Daisy – try our Eden strapless bra for support, shape and comfort.
Ridley says she believes Rey is a character that fans - both women and girls - can look up to.
“Rey is so strong. She’s cool and smart and can look after herself. Young girls can look at her and know that they can wear trousers if they want to… That they don’t have to show off their bodies.”
We second this entirely…. All our bras and briefs go marvellously with trousers, metaphorical of otherwise, ladies. Never forget it!
Stunning in green. Our lovely Lola set is just the thing for a body-con style.

In August 2016, Daisy received harsh criticism for posting an anti-gun violence message on her Instagram account. She then deleted her account citing a busy schedule. She also has a peace symbol tattoo behind her right ear.
Daisy suffers from endometriosis and polycystic ovaries, which have required her to undergo multiple, painful laparoscopic surgeries. She revealed on Instagram that she was diagnosed with the condition at 15 years old, and admitted that the condition left her feeling low in self-confidence due to acne that followed.
Well Daisy, if you can do battle with the body shamers and health issues and still win we’re sure that we at Little Women and all our customers can do likewise. Hip, Hip and Hur-Rey to body confidence!
