meet the models... leanne xo

we celebrated our summer collection 'forever in blue' and all of the fabulous women who wear our frocks, with a little soiree in our paddington store.

we thought we'd introduce you to some of our most fabulous maiocchi ladies, who took to the catwalk as our super models for the day.

we really are very lucky to be dressing some of the most clever, fabulous and fun ladies in all of the land, and we knew you'd want to get all the goss on these maiocchi mavens.

When you are measuring yourself if possible do so in front of the mirror to ensure the tape measure is horizontally positioned around your body.

Hold the tape measure close against your body but not too tight

Tip: always wear the underwear you plan to wear with the garment

measure the fullest part of your bust ensuring the tape measure is even and horizontal at the back.

your waist is the smallest part of your torso; it is usually a few centimetres above your belly button. Wrap the tape measure around your waist, ensuring it is comfortable but not loose.

this measurement is taken at the widest part of your body. measure around the fullest part of your bottom or at the top of your thighs, which ever is widest. Make sure the tape measure is even and horizontal at the back.
