Danielle: Today we're super excited to be sitting down with Carolynne Sady, who is not only a nurse, nursing coordinator for over 20 years and mum to two sassy felines called Marvin and Daisy, both rescue animals, and Cozzie the cockatiel. Most importantly, she's my big sister.

I really want to talk about growing up in the same household. We were four very different women in shapes, sizes, height, personality.

Carolynne: Personality.

Danielle: I mean we had one sister who's got the most amazing glamazon body you've ever seen. For me, I found myself comparing myself a lot to her growing up, and I found that quite troubling to me to understand that I was perfect just the way I am even though I didn't look like her.

Carolynne: It's really only been in the last six months that I truly have not felt like I was the ugly duckling walking next to her, because I did feel like that for many, many years. Didn't matter how good I thought I looked in the mirror, the second she walked out of the bathroom and I knew I was stepping out with her. I would feel like the ugly duckling.

Danielle: It's not that they are doing anything, that other person, it's just their being themselves and they're quite confident in who they are. And that's amazing power to them for that. But the self-talk and the self-doubt we create in ourselves, that it's taken you to this point in your life to actually go, "Do you know what? I'm exactly who I'm meant to be.".

Carolynne: Yeah. And it's really empowering to finally come into your own and be able to walk next to that person and feel amazing.

Danielle: And today in life, would you say you've fallen in love with your body as well as you saying you've got an inner peace, would you say part of that comes with the physical aspect, too, of yourself?

Carolynne: Absolutely. With a lot of work on myself, emotional healing, and it's affected every area of my life, especially my confidence within myself. So ability to make decisions that I'm 100% happy with, but spend more time walking around naked than I ever have. Finally embracing me for who I am. And that is every part of me.

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
