We know how difficult it can be to find a mastectomy bra, so to help make bra buying a little bit easier, we spoke to mastectomy lingerie brand, Amoena, for expert fit and style advice. Here’s what they had to say…
Q: I’m looking for pretty mastectomy bras in bright colours – I’m tired of wearing white, black and nude all the time!
A: Pretty bras brighten up our day, and thankfully there are some lovely mastectomy styles to choose from. Our range includes some gorgeous styles in the fashion colours of the season. Current styles include Rebecca – a non-wired bra in vibrant cherry with all-over lace and softly scalloped trim; Annette – an underwired smooth-cup bra in electric blue with nude cups overlayed in blue lace, and Karla – a feminine non-wired style with embroidered lace cups and split straps with bow trim, available in bright pink or deep blue with pink lace trim. All styles come with matching hipster briefs.

Wearing the right sports bra is so important and no one knows better than our Figleaves Half Marathon team! With the race just nine days away, the team are training harder than ever so we thought we’d find out which sports bras they recommend. Here’s what they had to say…
With London Fashion Week taking place last week, we’ve been keeping our eyes peeled for the latest trends and hottest looks. Trends ranged from bright yellow to sexy mesh and deep green, to name a few. Look to our fashion week round up and take inspiration from our favourite SS16 catwalk inspired looks.
Primrose Yellow As seen at Christopher Kane, Roksanda, and Jonathan Saunders, a statement-making spectrum of primrose yellow brightened up the catwalk. The perfect hue for SS16, take the trend to your lingerie drawer with Lepel’s Fiore Bra.
As the season’s change, there’s nothing we love more than a cosy night in curled up in our favourite pyjamas – and with the launch of our new nightwear brand, Yawn, the timing couldn’t be better!
We’re already head over heels for Yawn, so we caught up with the brand’s founder, Alice Whitely, to talk quirky, conversational prints and to find out the secret to the perfect pyjamas. Here’s what Alice has to say…
1. First things first, we LOVE the name ‘Yawn’! What inspired the brand name?
We wanted to create a brand that represents that brilliant time of day when you unwind and relax. I wish I could claim credit for the name itself but it was nothing to do with me – a designer we worked with thought of Yawn and we knew it was perfect instantly!
The right underwear can make or break an outfit. Not only will wearing the perfect bra make you look better, but you’ll feel it on the inside too.
We believe that you deserve to feel your best all day, every day, so we’ve compiled a capsule edit to show you how to build the perfect lingerie wardrobe. With a different style for each day of the week, you’ll never be without the right bra, whatever the occasion.
Monday… The Balcony
We all need a little motivation on a Monday. Starting the week in a pretty balcony bra will make you feel confident and beautiful. We love the Chantelle Merci Bra with a square neckline that flatters the décolletage and creates natural looking, subtle uplift.
