What is your name, bra size, and secret power?
My name is Caitlin Taylor, bra size 12DD
secret power is being able to walk into ANY store and being able to find something I want to buy.
What makes your happiest in life?
Hanging with my little family in the sunshine, and also making women feel amazing by helping them find their style.
Among your friends, what are you best known for?
Always being over-dressed
What's something most people wouldn't know about you?
I have a degree in sports psychology
What is your favourite thing about yourself?
Ooooh I ask people this all the time, and now I’m finding it hard to answer! Physically, my height. I LOVE being tall.
How did you find your own personal style?
I’ve been in the fashion industry for almost 20 years so I’ve had so much exposure to everything! I’ve always had quite a curvy body shape, so trends don’t always work on me. I just wear what makes me feel good and I think I always have.
Where did your love of fashion come from?
I think I was born with it haha! I used to get in trouble from my mum as a kid for changing my clothes four times a day. I just loved experimenting with how different things looked.
Who inspires you the most and why?
My momma. She is an amazing and compassionate human. She also is almost 70 years old and goes to work every day in her swimming togs! (She is a physiotherapist). She doesn’t care what her body looks like, she is focused on what it can do.
What is your favourite part of your job?
Seeing the look on a client's face when they really see how their personality can shine through in their style. It’s that ‘aha’ moment when they try something on they always wanted to but didn’t think they could wear it, and it looks AMAZE!
What is your favourite way to get your body moving and grooving?
I’m a dancer from way back! So any excuse to boogie! I also love the water, so swimming is a fave of mine. I always feel a sense of calm after I’ve been in a pool or the ocean.
What do you do for yourself?
Haha, I’m a working mum with two kids under 4! Nothing! No, that's a lie. I love getting my nails done, or having a massage. Those small things can get me through the rest of my hectic life
What has been your biggest body struggle?
Learning to dress my body again after having kids. It doesn’t look the same. It's still me, but different. And that is a hard adjustment to make.
What do you do to boost your body confidence on days when you're feeling down about your body?
I focus on the amazing things my body can DO, not what it looks like! It grew two humans (and I grow BIG babies) that’s pretty darn incredible!
What's the best thing about being a woman?
Getting to wear all the beautiful bras from Rose & Thorne
! Haha! But really, there is so much beauty in clothes, and as women, we get to play with the bulk of it.
It’s a cliché, but beauty really does come from inside. Real beauty can be seen in those people that are confident in who they are, no matter what they look like. It’s being at peace with yourself. That is beautiful.
What's the best piece of advice you've heard or received about body confidence?
Focus on what your body can DO, not what it looks like. You’ve only got one body, and the sooner you learn to appreciate it, the more you’ll learn to love it.
