Jessica Marais is a familiar face you’ll recognise no matter your TV tastes. From her breakout role in Packed To The Rafters to the more recent Love Child, she’s a household name – which also makes her the target for many a gossipy headline.
Right now, the 31 year old is kicking goals. She’s just released her latest The Sensation spring/summer ’16 campaign with Berlei and is set to hit our screens later this year in the highly anticipated TV adaptation of Zoe Foster Blake‘s novel The Wrong Girl.
We chatted to Marais about body confidence, beauty regrets and the time-saving hack that will change any fellow mum’s life.
When it comes to undies, are you Team Comfort or Team Style?
“That’s kind of why I’m a fan of this Berlei range because I’m interested in both! I definitely will not wear a pair of underwear that are uncomfortable so I will be more likely to wear an unattractive pair of underwear than a really attractive pair that are uncomfortable.
The spring/summer collection for Berlei is about comfort and support as well as to make yourself feel beautiful and attractive. But it’s also about women dressing for themselves. We are not aiming at trying to impress men with our underwear, it’s about how we feel inside and outside when we go into the day.”

It's amazing what wearing a beautiful pair of undies can do.
"Exactly. For a lot of women, the first thing you do in the morning is put your underwear and bra on and it's kind of a moment you can take for yourself to feel amazing and feel sensational.
