We’ve all had wardrobe malfunctions – moments when our clothes badly let us down. Susannah Constantine has had many. Like the time her dress straps snapped during a Windsor Castle supper, releasing her breasts into the soup. Clothes and how they define us have fascinated Susannah for years – and were famously explored in her seminal 'What Not To Wear' TV series and bestselling books. Now, she returns to her first and true love in 'My Wardrobe Malfunction', a revealing podcast about our relationship with the items we wear. The ups, downs and a lot more besides… This series began in January 2020 and continued over Zoom throughout lockdown, so please forgive any sound malfunctions. Promise we get our acts together eventually!

Bringing joy into my life...

Thank you so much, Susannah. I’ve only recently subscribed to your podcast so there are hours of enjoyment ahead of me. Such well-chosen guests and I appreciate your very direct interviewing style. Sheila Hancock was an absolute stand-out, though - I would happily spend every afternoon listening to the two of you in conversation.
