Debenhams post-surgery and mastectomy lingerie

Debenhams has had a strong relationship with both our legacy charities for many years and have raised over £4 million towards breast cancer research sales of special product ranges for Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Fashion Targets Breast Cancer, as well as store fundraising activities.

This year Debenhams has created the #GetBacktoYou campaign for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, with the aim to help not only women that have been affected by breast cancer, but also to inspire all of Debenhams’ customers with the little things that they can do to make themselves feel fabulous.

‘The perfect fit’ – This summer, Debenhams launched new range of post-surgery bras and lingerie sets under their well-known Spirit lingerie brand. The main purpose behind Debenhams developing the new post-surgery range was to provide an affordable range of post-surgery bras of great quality in attractive designs that meet the real needs of women who have had a mastectomy.

This new range has been in development for almost 2 years, and they have worked closely with our charity over the past year – listening to the views of our supporters through various in-person focus groups and online surveys, to ensure the new products and also the shopping and bra fitting experience are all the best that they can be.

Debenhams also selected one of our ambassadors, Wendy Aitken, to model the new range and feature on all product packaging and marketing promotions. You can watch Wendy’s story here.
