Bras support mum's melons

Lingerie lift ... farmer Rowie Meers is using old bras to stop her melons from sagging
By JOHN COLES

Published: Today

FRUITY farmer Rowie Meers has found the perfect way to support her giant melons — using old BRAS.

The busty 45-year-old came up with the idea after her bumper crop of galia melons started sagging on the vines they grow on.

After experimenting with a number of techniques, she realised the answer was right under her nose and her own bras provided the perfect support.

Rowie launched an appeal for unwanted bras and customers have already donated 40 to her business, Purton House Organics near Swindon, Wilts.

Mother-of-three Rowie said: "We had such a fantastic crop of galia melons and I was struggling to stop them swinging too low.

"We needed something to suspend them. My eureka moment came as I looked down the answer was under my nose.

"I thought let's use bras because they suspend my melons very well, so let's use them for this."

Rowie, who only started growing galia melons this year, said: "My own cup was not really big enough to hold the melons - so we asked our customers to send in their bras.

"We've been sent all kinds - from padded to lacy. We appreciate their support in more ways than one - especially the double D cups.

"It does make my polytunnel of melons look a bit odd, but it's great fun."

Rowie, who has been running the farm for 18 years, lives with daughters Lilly, 11, Matilda, 14, and Imogen, 16.

Her team of mainly female growers produce more than 250 vegetable boxes and 60 fruit boxes a week, as well as monthly meat boxes.

Rowie — who refuses to reveal her own bra size — added: "This is run by women and we want women working on their own and that's something else we're trying to push.

"It is a local female-run business and we need people's support."
