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.
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.
Mia: I'm like, hang on, I'm here to talk about me. They don't know about me.
Mia: I know about me.
Mia: This is fine, I've got this.
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.
Mia: The brain has got me here and it's, look, the brain has got me into some trouble as well.
Danielle: One word you'd use to describe yourself?
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.
Mia: I always wear pants. That's what my husband would say, wears the pants.

There's a saying that I often share with my client’s which is:
What we focus on, we continue to notice and experience to the exception of everything else.

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.
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.
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
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.
|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|
|EUROPE||34 to 36||36 to 38||38 to 40||40 to 42||42 to 44||44 to 46||46 to 48||48 to 50|
