Bringing more choice to you!
Welcome to Lisa’s Breast Care & Lingerie.
Bringing a different choice to the women of Newcastle, the Upper and Lower Hunter Valley, the Mid North Coast, Lake Macquarie and the Central Coast.
I have moved back to the Newcastle area with my husband, after 12 years in Canberra. It’s great to be back home!
I have a history of breast cancer in my family. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2013 and underwent a mastectomy. For me, breast cancer inspired me to work with women who also had been diagnosed, so I trained to become a qualified bra and prosthesis fitter and started working in Canberra with women with breast cancer 3 years ago, fitting mastectomy bras, post surgery bras and breast prostheses, plus wigs and head wear for women undergoing chemotherapy, bras for women having breast reductions, women who need large cup bras and bras for women in nursing homes or with mobility issues who need front opening bras.
After researching options I decided that having a breast reconstruction after my mastectomy was not going to complete me, or make me happy. I decided to wear a breast prosthesis (breast form) instead. I understand how it feels to go through a breast cancer diagnosis, and the subsequent treatment options and the myriad of feelings that go along with those options.
In a confronting and very emotional time, I understand. I know that for many women, going to a lingerie shop to be fitted for a post surgery bra or breast form is daunting and overwhelming. It certainly was for me, and if I had been given the choice to be fitted in my home, I would have loved that.
I decided to start a mobile fitting service, travelling to local women to fit them in the privacy and comfort of their own home. I also fit women who are still in hospital and I can travel to your local area for fitting days and give talks to provide further information.
I stock the full range of Amoena breast forms, which through experience, I have found to be the best. They are for everyday wear, leisure and swimming, plus partial breast forms for balance, for women who have breast conserving surgery (lumpectomy) or who may have naturally unbalanced breasts.
You can still have beautiful bras and lingerie after breast cancer treatment, with a wide range of stunningly gorgeous pieces in beautiful fabrics and laces from around the world, all pocketed to fit a breast form.
I stock front opening bras for post surgery and breast reductions, everyday comfortable bras for under your work uniforms and t-shirts, smooth cup bras, sports bras, and beautiful bras from the seasonal collections. The bras are pocketed, however they are suitable for every woman! I also have pocketed swimwear and leisure wear.
Let me bring the lingerie shop to you!
Love, Lisa x
