How can we help?
For more confidence when choosing a bra after surgery, join other women who have had breast cancer at one of our Lingerie Evenings.
They offer a practical guide to what to look for in a bra. There’s an opportunity to be fitted and a chance to see how the lingerie looks on volunteer models who have all had breast cancer themselves.
Held in high street stores or smaller boutiques, Lingerie Evenings always take place in private areas. It’s a safe, relaxed environment where you can meet others in a similar situation and share experiences.
Lingerie Evenings last around two and a half hours and you will usually be in a group of around 20 women.
How do I know if this service is right for me?
Lingerie Evenings are for women who have had breast surgery and are looking for support and advice to find bras and lingerie that are right for them, at any stage following surgery.
To see if this service is right for you, please contact your nearest Breast Cancer Care centre.
Can’t make it on the day?
Lingerie Evenings take place frequently across the UK, so keep an eye out for upcoming dates. You can also take a look at our A confident choice booklet which is packed with information, personal stories and photographs about breast prostheses, bras and clothes after surgery. It also contains supplier lists, including Womanzone who support our lingerie evenings and specialise in made-to-measure swimwear, plus bras, prostheses and accessories.
