International Fashion Stylist Maureen O Halloran who specialises in styling days for Post mastectomy clients came across Bravelles Post mastectomy shop in Limerick where she met a lovely lady called Pauline Conway who her self is a survivor of Breast Cancer, Aisling O Loughlin TV3 Xpose met Maureen & Pauline to get the inside preview on post mastectomy and Bravelle Post mastectomy store Limerick.
Pauline, is a breast cancer survivor, having been diagnosed with the disease in 1999. She knows exactly what the customer wants, and she now sells in her own shop www.bravelleshop.com the products that she herself found impossible to get and had to go looking for. She wanted to create a place where her customer would feel completely at ease and could find garments that, up to now, weren’t easily available on the market.
She is dedicated to making the customer look good and feel comfortable again, after a mastectomy. She doesn’t believe women should have to compromise on femininity, fashion or style and this is reflected in the range of products she stocks at BRAVELLE. All bras and swimwear have fitted pockets to hold the prosthesis discreetly and securely in place, and some styles are cut higher on the neckline and underarm to cover any scarring.
It is essential to be fitted with a proper prosthesis which looks natural and feels comfortable and as Pauline is a trained fitter, the customer can seek professional advice and also receive personal attention .The prostheses Pauline stocks are made of reduced-weight materials, designed to make the prosthesis lighter and more comfortable to wear. Depending on the extent of their operation, customers can choose between full and partial prostheses. Some customers say they sometimes even forget they are wearing one!
Far from matronly, styles include clear straps, cami-effect and multiway fastening, meaning that customers can find exactly what they need for that special event.
Pauline is continually searching the market for new products for her customers and at BRAVELLE, for 2010, as well as the complete range of ANITA products, she introduces the best styles in the AMOENA, SUSA, SUNFLAIR, TRULIFE, NICOLA JANE and ROYCE collections of Prostheses, Mastectomy lingerie and swimwear.
