    Looking forward to having further blogs and discussion around breast cancer and the specific lingerie needs of women following breast surgery. Mastectomy and breast care products are also found in shops dedicated to selling pocketed lingerie as opposed to the usual lingerie shops.

    • Hi Gillian! Congratulations on taking over Colleen’s, I was lucky enough to have spent some time with her a couple of years ago. I hope it’s going great for you and I will look forward to hearing your thoughts in future articles on around x
