Today we're going behind the scenes with Maya at our photo shoot.
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.
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!
