Last week, we were delighted to be approached by the Huffington Post who were writing the article "Mastectomy Bras UK: These brands will change your perception of mastectomy lingerie."
Style writer Rosy Cherrington had some questions about what we offer and our approach to mastectomy lingerie. You can read the full Huffington Post article and we've included some of the questions & answers from our chat below.
Rosy: What made you first decide to start Something Pretty?
Diana: There is probably far more now than there ever has been previously, however, it's still very much online if patients want to access a wider variety. Patients have even more problems accessing things like swimwear. The service patients get in Scotland, especially in Glasgow, is very good and they probably have more access to a wide range of Prosthesis and lingerie than anywhere else in the UK.
Diana: We get very good feedback, we try and offer patients the widest range of colours and styles available, and often these are special orders which are harder to source, but we think it's worth the effort.
Diana: I don't think Mastectomy patients should be treated any differently from other women...simple as that. Would you not want comfortable and attractive underwear?
Thank you Rosy and the Huffington Post!
