Ulrika Jonsson has explained why she swapped 'uncomfortable' thongs for 'apple catcher’ underwear in a new interview.
The former model, 53, revealed she was influenced to wear knickers, which she has described as 'the bane of my life', during her mid-20s due to 'societal pressure', and would revert to sporting full briefs during her pregnancies.
