Let’s talk breast cancer, 1 in 7 women in Australia and 1 in 670 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer by the age of 85.  For women in New Zealand the risk of being diagnosed is 1 in 90 and around 15% of female deaths in NZ are due to breast cancer – these statistics are scary.  The reality is that almost all of us has or will be affected in some way or another by breast cancer.  A mum, grandmother, friend, co worker or maybe it was you. (And if it is you, we are sending you the tightest hugs and warrior vibes.  You’ve got this!)

At ELC we have made a commitment to ourselves that we need to ensure we give back and support the community that supports us.  That’s why we signed up to be a corporate fundraiser for the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF).  We are committed to donating some of the proceeds from selected products to the NBCF to help the fight against breast cancer.

With your help through purchasing these products we are able to donate to this amazing charity and help raise funds towards finding a cure and eradicating breast cancer.

Thank you for your support,

The ELC Team xxx

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.
