What is BodyKind?

The BodyKind blog is about encouraging each other to look upon our own bodies as well as others with kinder eyes.  

We are constantly reminded to focus on how to improve the way we look, eat, exercise, dress etc. yet this means we get into the habit of judging and scrutinising not only our own bodies, but those of our friends, colleagues, teachers, parents, partners and strangers. 

Being BodyKind is about being mindful of our thoughts and increasing positive and kind thoughts towards our own bodies first and then extending this to others.

Why?   If you are like me, it can seem impossible to think positively about your body when we are taught to focus only on what needs to be improved.

For a long time, I found it very difficult to 'love my body'...especially when my body had brought me feelings of pain, rejection and unworthiness.

I really wanted to reach a genuine love for my body, but I didn't know how.  Eventually I read about a technique that seemed easy enough to try out...All I had to do was find one small thing each day, that I could be grateful for about my body.

I started with things like; "hey body! thanks for getting me work and home everyday". Then... "thanks arms for allowing me to hug my friends".  It was so simple I started to have fun with it.

In a short time, I started to see my body for more than it's appearance, size, shape and imperfections. I discovered so much more about my body and what it did for me, that I developed a renewed respect. I could see how it helped me travel the world and have wonderful adventures and hug people and read and see, play and move!  

Practising BodyKind thoughts, meant my body and I were becoming more friends than enemies... 

If you've been feeling hate towards your body, you could try this simple exercise:  find one small thing each day you are grateful for about your body.   If it's too hard to start with yourself just yet, start with others... for example, next time you look at someone, instead of jumping straight to judging their appearance or comparing yourself to them, think one kind thought about them.  After doing this for a week, you'll have no problem in coming up with a kind thought for yourself.

  • Compliment yourself.  
  • Pay a compliment to someone else.  
  • Think kindly towards every-Body.  
  • Be BodyKind.

You CAN Wear Dresses Again!

I receive many comments from women expressing how they haven't worn dresses or skirts for years.

They felt it was their "lot" in life to wear trousers or leggings under dresses. The reason?...

My goal is not to simply apply a positive slant to the issue of thigh rub. I actually feel it's about removing the shame that too many women have around their thighs...

Size Guide

Size Guide

SIZING:

Miss Monroes, Lingerie for Thighs are designed to fit comfortable and snug, without the pressure of slim wear. 

  • The 4 way stretch of this high tech breathable fabric means that it will stretch with your body. 
  • The gorgeous lace trim on the leg should hug your thigh to keep them in place and not pinch or be too tight.
  • There may be slight differences in the stretchiness of each type of lace trim.  If you feel your thigh shape needs a little extra room, go up a size.**   : )
**If you are unsure, buy the next size up and if it’s not right,
we are happy to exchange or refund (check our refund policy here).

If you are in between sizes follow this table:
For best results, select the size range you are closest too. 
  • For example if you are in between sizes 14 and 16, yet closer to 16, select size 16-18. (Remember size is just a number!)
    Or
  • In between size 14-16, but you are closer to a size 14? (choose Size 12-14) 
  • If you are truly in-between sizes (e.g. size 11) then use your judgement on whether you think you need a little more give around the leg and lace trim... and select the next size up or down accordingly.

*PLUS SIZING?
  Hey Gorgeous ladies!  I am gradually improving my Sizes 20-22 and 24-26 by applying the
plus+ sizing to certain styles.  This is because I still have stock in those sizes, that were made with the Australian Standard sizing. So at the moment, these are the styles that have the Plus sizing applied... The Marilyn, Swan Lace and Deja Nude. As I order more stock the other styles will become available in Plus Sizing. Thank you for your patience lovelies.
If you are unsure of the sizing, just drop me a line on info@missmonroes.com.au!  Rest assured Lingerie For Thighs cater to all body shapes and sizes and we also understand that everyone's fit and body shape will be different.  If you would like to try before you buy, you are more than welcome to come and try for yourself at the markets we visit several times a year (join our Facebook page for posts about these events). Or take the plunge and purchase a pair to try on at home and if you need to adjust the size or return them, I offer a 30 day return policy!
You can also contact me to ask specific questions at info@missmonroes.com.au.

Waist Rise: 

There are two waist rise options for preference and comfort (Low and Mid Rise).
Please check the image of our models above to help you compare waist rises,
then refer to the chart for waist measurements.

Leg Length:
The longer length sits approx. mid thigh (on a taller frame) 
and just below mid thigh (on a petite frame).

If in doubt and you want maximum coverage for thigh chafing,
start with our mid thigh length.

Mid Leg
:
Is approx. 18cm from inseam. (Measure from the top of the inside leg at crotch).
Note: This differs slightly on each body shape.
Short Leg:
Is approx. 15cm from inseam. (Measure from the top of the inside leg at crotch).
Note: This differs slightly on each body shape.

Need a longer or shorter length? Need a higher waist? 

Please let us know using our contact us page…. your request counts!  
We will release these styles sooner if we get enough interest. :)
