We had the lovely Jane O’Dwyer from Amoena who gave us a short presentation on bra fitting. Bra sizes change after treatment, weight loss/gain, age, etc. Different brands and range from the same brand can fit slightly differently so Jane recommends trying on a bra before buying. The cup size for a 36B is the same as a 34C, 40D the same as 42C and so on. Jane measured and fitted a few ladies. Amoena offers a free personal bra fitting service at their showroom at 1 Eagle Close, Chandlers Ford SO53 4NF.

Just a few friendly people having an informal meeting where we chat and share information over a cuppa!

We had a really good meeting! Lots of active discussion about radiotherapy and side effects, lymphoedema and how simple and regular massage makes a huge difference.
