The birth of Skarlette®

Kate's first attempt at making the lingerie to my requirements. Having had no experience in this area, she produced an amazing garment that I fell in love with.The concept of this lingerie was born from experience of living completely flat. For some women reconstruction isn’t possible or fails and for some women it just isn’t wanted, neither are prosthetics. For some women, going “braless” can be liberating! However, for many, femininity remains hugely important. Feeling attractive and sexy as healing and recovery take place is essential for the repair of psychological well-being after such a grueling regime of treatment and experiences. Women need to be empowered to feel whole and beautiful in the absence of breasts.
