Meet Paulina, one of the lovely ladies who joined us for our most recent customer video shoot! We asked Paulina a few questions to get to know a bit more about who she is and what makes her tick. We're sure you'll love her as much as we do.
What is your name, bra size, and secret power?
Paulina, 16DD / 16E and my secret power is making people smile. It’s always good to share a laugh.
Why did you apply to be in the Customer Video Shoot?
I really wanted to portray a positive body image and show my beautiful daughters that regardless of size, it’s so important to love yourself for who you are. There is no “perfect size”.
What makes you the happiest in life?
Family is a huge part of my life. I have a awesome husband and we have three beautiful healthy daughters. I have three brothers and a sister and we are extremely close. Between them, I am a proud Aunty to five nieces, two nephews and a Great Aunt to three beautiful girls and a gorgeous wee boy. I also have a lovely sister in law who has two daughters – can you see the theme here? We’ve been blessed with a LOT of girls!
What’s something most people wouldn’t know about you?
I’m pretty much an open book, if you’re fortunate enough to be in my circle, what you see is what you get
What did you enjoy most about your day on set?
I LOVED meeting the other women that were on the shoot. It was so empowering to meet like minded women. I love that we were there essentially for the same reasons. I got a kick out of meeting Sue too. You get to see her doing her thing online so was good to see that happening in the flesh - literally. Really lovely meeting the Rose & Thorne team that were there too. You made us all feel so comfortable.
Was there anything that surprised you about the day?
Thinking back, I was a little surprised at how seamless and easy the day was and how quickly the day went. Not knowing what would happen or how things would go, it was nowhere near as scary or nerve wracking as I thought it would be. Pat yourselves on the back as I believe things went as well as they did as those of us that were chosen, got along so well.
How did it feel to be fitted and have a dance in your underwear in front of a camera?
That was a wee bit harrowing I’m not going to lie, however, being able to do that with a fantastic group of women made it so much easier! The cheering from the team in the background went a long way in giving us all a bit of a boost.
Is there anything you learned from taking part in our customer video shoot?
Just how similar we all are. Regardless of age and where we come from, we all (incl the men that were at the shoot too) are wanting better & healthier outlooks for our kids. Not just physically, but mentally as well.
What's the best thing about being a woman?
I’m passionate about the female body in all shapes & sizes & truly believe we need to celebrate that.
What's one piece of advice you'd give to others learning to embrace their bodies?
Be kind to yourself. Love yourself. You are in charge of you. Do what makes you happy.
What's your favourite go-to Rose & Thorne bra, and why?
The En Forme Enhanced Support Crazy Flower Bra! This was my absolute favourite as it was a shape & size I never would’ve picked out myself & absolutely LOVE. I didn’t want to take that one off! It made me feel super feminine. I will definitely be buying that one & will buy in a set as I LOVE matching sets for special occasions.
