Interview Transcript:

Danielle: We're sitting down today to talk with the wonderful and always bright and bubbly, Renee, the skin therapist and part owner of Natspa here at Essendon, Victoria.  What do you think has been your biggest accomplishment with Natspa and the work that you guys do?

Renee: Look, I've had clients that I've been looking after for 20 years. So, you know, that's really touching that they've trusted me with their skin and their skin issues.  Obviously, keeping the doors open for such a long time. Small business is really challenging at times.

Renee:It's fun. It's nice being your own boss and calling the shots, in a way and setting your own hours, which is good.

Danielle: How do you find you work with your clients to instil that confidence? They may have an acne problem or they may have something that visually is prevalent to people. How do you work with those people to try and help them with the confidence?

Renee: I think apart from the physical treatment side of it, it's also like I touched on before, listening to their concerns. Encouragement is massive in our job. You know, we tend to find that when they do have self-esteem issues it's encouraging them not to compare themselves to anyone out there. Get off Instagram and get off social media because you know what? You're on your own journey. You're on your own skin path, your own journey. And it's not a race. It's a marathon to get to where you need to go.

Renee: And I find it, I guess some part counsellor sometimes.

Danielle: Definitely.

Renee: I have to be. And it's becoming a lot more part of my job, I think, in this day and age.

Danielle: But how is it that it works for you? What self-confidence do you have? Or, are you a self-confident person physically as well, or?

Renee: I think like all of us, when we have our days. The days where, you know, you think, "Yeah, I'll go right today. I'm doing okay." And other days that you might just be derailed by something that's happened. You know, you're only human if you don't have those days.

Danielle: Yeah.

For most people who know me, know that I'm a pretty open book. But sometimes we all come to something that we don't feel we can talk about. I'm even creating this video, and I don't know whether it'll ever be seen. But I'm creating this video because I know R U OK Day is coming up, and for me it's important to share my story so other people do actually understand that there's struggles that no one will ever see.

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
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
