Breast Cancer Awareness Month


October is a month we celebrate at Eloise since it traditionally marks Breast Cancer Awareness month. To be honest we think that every month should mark Breast Cancer Awareness as latest figures show that one in eight women will be diagnosed with invasive breast cancer during the course of their lifetime. The more publicity that Breast Cancer recieves then the more fund raising will be done to suport those who are diagnosed and to aid research into a cure. So October is a very welcome month on the Eloise calendar as events take place up and down the country and across the world to mark the month and raise money for Breast Cancer Charities.

For our part this month, Eloise will be donating 10% of the profits from the sale of the Safina Bra  to Breast Cancer Care. We chose Safina as it is one of our best selling mastectomy bras, super supportive and comfortable. Its a perfect everyday bra with stretch panels at the neckline and around the arms for a perfect fit with wide flatly padded straps and skin-friendly discreet cotton jersey pockets on both sides for a prosthesis. You can buy Safina in Black, Crystal or Nude so it will work with pretty much everything you haev in your wardrobe whatever the colour. Nude is the best colour to choose if you are wearing a white top by the way, white bras under white tops still show through where a nude coloured bra will remain invisible.

You will also likely have seen our previous post letting you all know about the open evening we are hosting on October 26th at our Fitting Room here in Milton Keynes at the Eloise head office. The event is called \’Restoring Curves and Confidence\’ and we will be welcoming post-surgical ladies from across the region.Whilst enjoying a complimentary glass of Bucks Fizz and canopies visitors can take advantage of a Bra fitting by specialist fitters from Eloise, a bespoke ‘Eye Brow Bar’ with Clarins make-up experts who will be transforming eyebrows that may have been damaged or lost through chemo, a demonstration of important exercises to undertake after surgery from Pilates instructor April Tarabella of AT sports injury clinic  and a charity raffle in aid of Bosom Pals, a local  Breast Cancer  charity which will include a fabulous Spa Day kindly donated by Champneys Henlow Grange.

There will also be a short section on planting and growing Peonies with a premium Peony kindly donated for the raffle by Primrose Hall Nursery, the RHS Chelsea Flower Show Award winning Peony growers based in Befordshire. Gardening is encouraged as a gentle form of exercise after surgery as it is good for the mind and soul as well as the body and Peonies have long been one of the nations favourites .

We look forward to seeing you later in the month but in case you cant make it, why not treat yourself to Safina and do your bit to help us raise valuable funds for Breast Cancer Care 🙂
