Woman Covers Breasts With Prosecco And Cauliflower As Clothing Is 'Non-Essential' In Wales
A woman has made a point about the Welsh government's new ruling that clothing is 'non-essential' by posting a photo of herself using only a bottle of Prosecco and a cauliflower to cover her body.
Sally Love, 34, from Mold in North Wales, shared the image on Facebook after supermarkets in the country were banned from selling of items deemed to be 'non-essential', as part of the Covid-19 firebreak lockdown.
Posting the image, she wrote: "DON'T PANIC if you see me walking to the butchers tomorrow.
"I live in Wales and clothing is non-essential for the next 17 days.
"Luckily Prosecco and cauliflower is essential!"
The marketing director has been shielding at home since March due to having an underlying health condition.
Sally has a suppressed immune system and falls into the high-risk category when it comes to Covid-19. She only leaves her house for tasks like going to the butchers on Saturday mornings.
Sally said: "I think the 'clothing ban' has really shown us that 2020 could not get any more weird.
"The government haven't taken into account what is deemed 'essential' or 'non-essential' by the public.
"In my opinion, the majority of people won't be rushing to a supermarket to buy clothes with the high street or small business clothes shops being closed.
"Where I think it has really struck a chord with people is buying baby and children's clothes.

"I get that they were trying to be fair to the smaller independent clothes shops, but feel this has just pushed people to purchase online if they need something urgently.
"I don't know about you, but I've never bought a non-essential pair of knickers. I deem them as fairly essential.
"It's not just limited to clothes. I've never bought a kettle and thought, you know what, I'll keep that and use it in a few weeks time.
"I've bought it because I needed it, likely that day."
Sally shared the image with her mates on Facebook, but when her sister told her to make the post public, it garnered a fair amount of attention.
She said: "It was just a play on words that if clothing is deemed non-essential, then does that mean I have to wear them [the cauliflower and prosecco]?
"Luckily a lot of people got the joke, but I have had a few people question whether I own clothes or not."
And some good has already come from the funny post.
Sally added: "The post online has gained quite a bit of love, with the majority of people commending me on the bravery of going naked.
"I've also received a few messages from people thanking me for baring my scars. I've had two bowel resections over the years for Crohn's disease.
"I am glad that this has helped some people with their confidence with their scars."
