A busy mum has invented the world’s first suspenders to be held up by poppers.
Ella Vine, 32, from Thurrock, Essex now wears her super convenient popper suspenders on the school run and every day to work.
She struggled with a medical condition called fibromyalgia in the early days of her business, causing her to experience severe fatigue and spontaneous bouts of severe pain.
While running her suspender business, Ella also works with a charity supporting fibromyalgia, a condition which causes extreme uncontrollable pain throughout the body.

Ella invented her product as she has to wear compression tights for medical reasons but struggled to do up the traditional fastening on suspenders
Ella has now secured the rights for her unique idea across the whole of Europe.
She said: ‘I started with little or no money, and only really started making these stockings because of the pain I experienced with my battle with Fybromalgia.’
She said: ‘I have to wear compression hosiery for medical reasons and invented poppy suspenders simply because the traditional fastening was too difficult.
‘It took too long to attach stockings to a suspender belt.

‘I wanted to help not only myself, but also other women.
‘Now I can also attach hold ups to a suspender belt, which gives it extra comfort and staying power.
‘It took me two years and many prototypes of different fastenings until I arrived at the simplest solution – poppers. The simple is often the best.’
What is Fibromyalgia?
Fibromyalgia, also known as (FMS), is a common condition which causes widespread pain in the body
The exact cause of Fibromyalgia isn’t known but it is related to abnormal levels of chemicals in the brain – resulting in a change of the central nervous system processing pain messages throughout the body
Sufferers are also prone to fatigue, muscle stiffness, insomnia, headaches and Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
The condition can also be triggered by an operation, giving birth, death of a loved one and breakdown of a relationship .
