What services do you offer people living with cancer?
We offer a wide selection of post-surgery bras, swimwear and breast forms. All our styles are designed to fit with great comfort and support following any type of breast cancer surgery. After surgery, ladies are often conscious of how their swimwear and bras fit, so our designers ensure that the styles have higher fronts and underarms to hide scarring or indentation. All our styles include fitted pockets to hold a prosthesis securely and discreetly. Orders can be placed on 01243 537300 or online and will be sent out from our HQ in Chichester.
We also have a shop in Chichester, West Sussex, offering pre- and post-operative ladies the opportunity to be fitted for a mastectomy bra, swimsuit or prosthesis by one of our trained fitters. Our shop is currently operating by appointment only. To find out more details, please visit: https://www.nicolajane.com/chichester-shop/ or call 01243 533188.
Before Covid-19 hit the UK in March, we were also offering Fitting Clinics in different locations in the UK. These have unfortunately had to be paused for the moment, but we are hoping to resume these very shortly. At our Fitting Clinics, women have the opportunity to be measured and fitted by one of our Breast Care Specialists. They will have a selection of styles with them that the ladies can try on and then purchase to be sent to them. The Fitting Clinics are by pre-booked appointments only. For more information, please visit our website or call our customer service team on 01243 537300.
Do you have a target demographic who use your services?
Our collection is aimed at women that have had breast cancer, are currently going through treatment or are about to have their surgery, so the majority of our customers are women. We do not really target a specific age group as breast cancer can unfortunately affect anyone.
What’s the most rewarding thing about the work you do?
It is extremely rewarding when we can help a woman find a bra that she feels comfortable in and that helps restore her confidence and femininity after having gone through a gruelling treatment and surgery. Having breast surgery, whether this is a lumpectomy, mastectomy, or a reconstruction, often changes a woman’s self-confidence, so helping to restore this and experiencing how grateful our customers are for our service is invaluable.
