Bohemian Women - Jane Goodall

October 03, 2019

Bohemian Women - Jane Goodall

The next trailblazing woman I wanted to share with you is Jane Goodall. She embodies the bohemian spirit and was a source of inspiration for the Haute Bohemians collection.

Jane Goodall, a primatologist, conservationist, author, and environmental activist embodies the bohemian spirit through her groundbreaking work in the field of science, and her insistence on addressing issues in her own way, rather than following the status quo. Jane’s work with the chimpanzees was motivated by her love of animals, and she used her lack of formal collegiate training as an asset, rather than a hindrance, as it allowed her to view things differently. This difference led to Jane’s discovery of chimpanzees’ distinct personalities and complex social structures, which is one of the most significant scientific findings of the 20th century.

Jane’s determination and quest for knowledge, her desire to follow her passion, and her ability to see things in a different light make her an inspiration as a bohemian woman, and a person I believe we can all learn from in both the field of science, and all aspects of life. - A x

Paradise can mean many different things for different people. For some it means a tropical vacation somewhere new and exotic. For others, a holiday away at the family batch. Paradise can even be as simple as settling in on a Sunday with a cup of tea and a good book...

Reading is something that always helps to keep me sane. It can be great to help us understand more about the world and people around us, or to escape them entirely! Personally I’m a big fan of escapism…

HOW TO MEASURE YOUR BODY

There are three body measurement points that you need to know to ensure a great fit – bust, waist, and hips.

When taking your body measurements, wear the undergarments you normally wear for the most accurate results. Use a flexible tape measure, or a piece of string and ruler, and hold it around each body point so it is comfortably snug.  If the tape is cutting into your flesh, it is too tight.

To ensure an accurate measurement around your body, keep the measuring tape as level as possible from front to back. We recommend measuring yourself in front of a mirror so you can check this from a side view. If you can, get a friend to help you to ensure the most accurate measurements.


Bust: Wrap the measuring tape around your back and where the tape meets across the fullest point of your bust is your bust measurement.  

Waist: Wrap the measuring tape around your natural waist, the slimmest part of your torso, pulling the ends to the front. Where they meet is your waist measurement.

Hips: Wrap the measuring tape around the widest part of your bottom – this is usually low down towards your thighs. As with your bust and waist measurements, where the tape meets is your hip measurement.

Length: To measure the length of individual garments against your body it is best to measure down the centre of your back. To do this, start the measuring tape at either the base of your neck for dresses and tops, or at your waist for skirts. Measure down your body to the measurement listed in the garment description. This will show you where the garment comes to on you. When you are measuring for length, remember to make sure you are standing completely upright – it is best to have someone help you with this. Alternatively, compare the measurement with the length of a garment you already have.
