Soft Paris lingerie sales adviser Mathilde Balluas (30), from Dublin, says: "I first started working as a direct sales rep for a lingerie company in France, where I'm from. After I moved to Ireland in 2007, I thought it would be a great opportunity to make money and meet people.

"Earlier this year, I started working for Soft Paris, a French brand which sells lingerie and bedroom accessories. When you're selling sexy lingerie, it's not that difficult. Everyone is in a girly mood and guests can try on the lingerie if they want.

"Normally our parties are women-only. If someone brought their boyfriend, I think the other women would feel uncomfortable. However, we also do couples' parties.

"At the moment, I do around one party per weekend. On an average night, you would sell around €500 worth of products, on which you make 25pc commission. But I have sold up to €1,000 some nights, making €250 for myself. At each party, I try to book another party with one of the women.

"To be honest, it's not really like work. Wearing nice lingerie helps women feel beautiful – I love being part of that."
