Interview Transcript:

Dalena: Hello, my name is Dalena Leggieri Ebadi. I am a professional dancer and dance teacher. I have a dance studio in Prahran that we've just opened up this year called HD Entertainment. So it's quite exciting. I dance and teach with my husband, which is all sorts of things amazing. And I'm really happy to be here today.

Question: What made you decide to apply for the Everyday Lingerie Co. real woman model search?

Dalena: I work with a lot of young ladies, so we do teach a lot of young dancers and I just think it's really important to actually share body confidence to those young girls as they're maturing into young ladies.

So, for me it was really about pushing myself into doing something that I'm a bit uncomfortable with and it's out of my comfort zone. And just actually sharing with those young ladies that actually you should really be proud of your body and what you have, and everything is great that you embody and all that kind of stuff.

Question: What age did you become confident in your skin?

Dalena: Okay. So I probably gained quite a bit of confidence around the age of 23 I would say. And that's when I started working as a dancer a lot more. Especially, that's when I delved into the Latin style and I think Latin specifically embodies the curvy shaped ladies a lot more.

I do still have days where I am very self-conscious about how I look and how I feel. I might feel bloated and gross and I still have to get into a costume. But I somehow pull it together and get my act together and still do it. At the end of the day, I love performing so that takes over the nerves and things like that.

Question: What is one word you would use to describe yourself?

Dalena: It's a very tough question. I'm going to go with creating. I actually love, love creating. I love coming up with different things and new things all the time and I love sharing that with ladies and the younger generation. And yes, that's me.

Question: What is your favourite body part and why?

Dalena: This is a weird one. This is a weird one, my shoulders. They're just always so smooth and they never change. I can always rely on it. I can rely that they're going to look good in an off-the-shoulder top, singlet top, in a shirt. It just works. Yeah.

Question: What style best represents you; brief, boyleg or g string and why?

Dalena: I'd have to say a G-string. Anything else, just my butt eats it. I can't go past anything else.

Just happens. Look, I've tried to do a really good brief or boyleg. It just ends up, up there anyway. So I might as well just keep it that way.

January 10, 2022

Finding out I was pregnant was one of the most exciting times in my life. I will always remember the day.  We had decided a couple of months back to leave it in the universes hands to see what happened, and sure enough within 8 weeks I was pregnant, but at the time I was unaware.

Sizing

Trying to find the right underwear size can be difficult due to different companies making different sizes. To make things easier we have created a step by step guide to take the guess work out of the equation.

Below we have measuring instructions with images to assist you.  

Finding your size in our Underwear Range:

All you need to do is take a couple of simple measurements; your waist, your lower waist and your hips. The best way to do this is by using a soft measuring tape and a mirror to ensure you are accurate.  If possible stand in front of a mirror when taking your measurements to ensure that the measuring tape is also parallel to the floor and is flat.

Measurement 1: Your waist

Your waist is the natural in indentation above your hips or just below your rib cage (see image). Wrap the soft measuring tape around firmly without pitching your skin together – write this measurement down.

Measurement 2: Your Lower Waist

Your lower waist is approx. 12cm down from your waist.  Take your measuring tape and run this down from your waist to 12cm (see image). Wrap the soft measuring tape around this area firmly without pitching your skin together – write this measurement down.  

Measurement 3: Your hips

Now wrap the soft measuring tape around the fullest part of your hips, this is approximately 25cm below your waist (see image). Use the mirror to check that your measuring tape is completely straight and parallel to the floor – write this measurement down.

 

 

Finding your size in our Crop Top Bralette Range:

All you need to do is take a couple of simple measurements; your Full Bust and your Lower or under bust. The best way to do this is by using a soft measuring tape and a mirror to ensure you are accurate.

Measurement 1: Your Full Bust

Your Full Bust is the fullest part of your bust (see image). Ensure that the measuring tape is completely straight and parallel to the floor. Wrap the soft measuring tape around firmly without pitching your skin together – write this measurement down

Measurement 2: Your Lower or Under Bust

The Lower or Under bust is measured by wrapping the measuring tape around your rib cage directly under your bust (see image). Wrap the soft measuring tape around firmly without pitching your skin together – write this measurement down
