Danielle: We're super excited today to be sitting down and chatting with the amazing Mia Klitsas-Marcocci, from Moxie Feminine Hygiene products and The Brand Maketh. As a woman, I know you struggled with, over the years as well, that body confidence in yourself. And how did you find coming into, you know, your adult time and coming in as a business woman and walking into a room sometimes where you're the only female sitting in that board room?

Mia: Yeah, yeah. And actually that was really tough. I had a really tough time then. You know, I was young, I was a woman and I literally have people telling me to my face like, oh, you're too young to have an opinion, you're just a young girl. Someone told me once that, you know you're the expert on you. So when you're walking into a room and you're telling your story, people are there because they're there to listen to you. And so whether I'm going into a meeting or you know, speaking in front of a thousand young women at school or whatever.

Danielle: Yes.

Mia: I'm like, hang on, I'm here to talk about me. They don't know about me.

Danielle: Yeah.

Mia: I know about me.

Danielle: Yeah.

Mia: This is fine, I've got this.

Danielle: Yeah.

Mia: And so I think that sort of, just you know, reminding yourself that... you're the expert on you.

Danielle: So in having said that, and you know, obviously what Moxie looks after and their product range, what's your favourite body part?

Mia: Oh God. I mean, look, my brain does all the heavy lifting. If you don't notice. Yeah, I mean, you know, brain.

Danielle: Yes.

Mia: The brain has got me here and it's, look, the brain has got me into some trouble as well.

Danielle: Yeah.

Danielle: One word you'd use to describe yourself?

Mia: Loyal.

Danielle: Your husband's sitting here. What's the word he'd used?

Mia: Well, I would hope that he would want to stay married, so I'd hope that he'd say something nice.

Danielle: Would you describe yourself as a brief, a boyleg or g string girl? Being the fact that we have similar categories to work with, we'll focus on the same region.

Mia: I am, believe it or not, I am the g string girl. Which my friends are like, what? Really?

Danielle: No, I thought you would be g string or (boyleg) short. I thought you were going to be.

Mia: Yeah. Well, it depends on what day it is. It depends what's happening, what I'm wearing, but mostly day to day, I'm a pants wearer.

Danielle: Yeah.

Mia: I always wear pants. That's what my husband would say, wears the pants.

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
