Los Angeles, CA (BANG) – Victoria Beckham wanted to design dresses women can go to the toilet in. The former Spice Girls star – who recently launched her second collection of women’s clothes – determined the most important features the outfits needed.
She said: “I put all the clothes on myself and walk around in it, and I know what feels comfortable. I know how a dress should sit. I’ve worn so many in the past and when I see the photographs I think, crikey, my boobs are up round my neck again because the corsets are too short and not cut high enough.”
“Like I knew I would spend a lot on high-quality zips because I have had my share of badly made zips. I wanted a zip that undoes from both ends because then you can either put the dress on over your head or step into it – and also, you know, going to the loo wouldn’t be this whole big problem.”
Victoria – who has three sons with husband David – also revealed being in the Spice Girls made it harder to pursue a career in fashion.
She added to Britain’s The Times newspaper: “Being in the Spice Girls, fashion-wise, probably didn’t open any doors. If anything, it shut doors and I have had to bang them down.”
