Here at the Hope Centre our bra fitting clinic caters for ladies who have had a breast cancer diagnosis. We provide an individual and private appointment for the fitting of post surgery bras, prosthesis and swimwear.
After a diagnosis and treatment for breast cancer it is natural to be less confident about your body image, our aim is to help restore your confidence. When you get a proper fitted bra and prosthesis you will start to feel good again about yourself. Our professionally trained bra fitters understand the many stages that women go through during a breast cancer journey and provide support and advise during appointments.
