Sabrina Tells Her Secret

Pictorial (Australia) 13 May 1957

Sabrina SABRINA - Britain's girl with the mostest in front isn't at all shy about explaining how she supports the famous figure that supports her. 'It's easy," she says, pushing out her 41 inch chest.

"There are plenty of big busts, but it's the shape not the size that counts. My shape is perfect and I buy my bras off the hook in any chain store. I don't have them specially made or alter the ones I buy; that would be cheating."

Sabrina, born Norma Sykes in Blackpool [no - Stockport - Ed.] in 1936, has come a long way in a short time. Since she burst into fame in 1955 she has become the most sought-after glamour girl in Britain.

"I don't have my bras specially made or altered to give me uplift; that would be cheating."

The boom began with Sabrina's first appearance on British television in 1955. She did nothing. She said nothing. She just appeared.
But for hours later the studio's telephones rang hot and for days thousands of letters poured in from all over the country asking who she was and what were her measurements.
The buxom Lancashire lass with the dressmaker mother and factory inspector father had arrived with a bang.

"There are plenty of big busts - but it's shape that counts - and my shape is perfect"

Sabrina in towel SINCE then Sabrina has been virtually unchallenged as leader of Britain's "Sex Stakes." Last year she was selected as one of the nation's three women of the year by a committee headed by the Marchioness of Lothian. And her figure has become such a valuable property she recently insured her bust for £100,000 sterling or £2500 an inch.
"I've got to insure," she says."After all, it is my stock in trade."

Sabrina, who like many top stars was once photographed in the nude when she was struggling to become a model, has had her eyes set on higher things for a long while. She has taken singing and drama lessons and has an ambition to make a film with Sir Laurence Olivier. But she still earns her big money by showing off her assets, wriggling her hips, and acting dumb. But she's Sabrina and amazing. Maybe one day she will get to act with Sir Laurence.

"I've insured my bust for £100,000. I've got to insure - after all, it's my stock-in-trade."
