Interview Transcript:

Maya: Okay, so my name is Maya. Actually my name is Myata, but Maya is easier. I'm 28 years old, I'm from Brazil but I live in Melbourne three years now.

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

Maya: Everybody has struggles with their body and I would never take a picture in bikinis or swimsuits, and even if I took it, I would never post it. So when I saw you searching for real women for this campaign, I thought, okay, that's my chance. I'm going to conquer this year and I'm going to try to inspire other women like so many other has inspired me.

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

Maya: Now, yes. But it took a long time for me. And it was only three years ago when I came to Australia that that happened to me, because before, in Brazil, I'm the biggest one in my family, everybody's so skinny. I always felt the pressure to be healthy, so I had to move all the way to the other side of the world to feel better. Now I feel confident.

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

Maya: Weird. No, no, I'm joking. I'm focused. I'm very, very focused. When I put something on my mind, I don't stop until I get it or I get it done, so I'm very focused.

Question: What is your favourite body part and why?

Maya: That's a funny question. I think it's my butt. It's not perfect, it's far from perfect, but I kind of like it. And my husband like it as well, so I think that's it.

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

Maya: Well I love the boyleg. It's so comfortable. Oh my God. I'm all about comfort and this is like everything. I love the boyleg so much. It's so comfortable. I love that. It's just great. Look!

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, alternatively we have a video taking you through each step.

Finding your size:

All you need to do is take 2 simple measurements; your 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.

Measurement 1: Your waist

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

Measurement 2: Your hips

Now wrap the soft measuring tape around the fullest part of your hips, this is approximately 7 inches below your waist (see image to right). Use the mirror to check that your measuring tape is completely straight and parallel to the floor – write this measurement down.

Example: If your waist is 78 cm and hips 104 cm we would recommend a size 12, however if you want a slight looser fit you may opt for a size 14.

ELC Size 8 10 12 14 16 18 20 22
Waist Measurement (cm) 70 75 80 85 93 100 107 114
Hip Measurement (cm) 92 98 104 110 117 124 131 137
USA 4 to 6 6 to 8 8 to 10 10 to 12 12 to 14 14 to 16 16 to 18 18 to 20
UK 6 to 8 8 to 10 10 to 12 12 to 14 14 to 16 16 to 18 18 to 20 20 to 22
