Play your part in raising breast cancer awareness with all things pink
WE SPEAK TO STEPHEN VAN NIEKERK, CHIEF BRA OFFICER AT ANITA, SPECIALISTS IN POSTMASTECTOMY UNDERGARMENTS
Tell us about your undergarment products?
Women who've undergone a mastectomy need a bra that accommodates breast prostheses. The Anita Bras have a tailored internal pouch that keeps the prostheses secure and hidden. They form a sleek contour and even line on the body to help the survivor achieve a balance in her bustline and appearance.
Why is it important to wear the right undergarment?
Intimate wear should sit as close to your skin as possible, so comfort and fit are essential. There's nothing worse than adjusting your underwear all day. Wearing an incorrect bra can have long-lasting effects on the body. These include grooves in your shoulder, chaffing and minor scarring in pressure points on the body.
What does Anita stand for?
Anita concentrates on achieving optimal fit, quality, and comfort to keep perfecting our various products. Besides being practical, we also focus on the fashion element of our products. Rather than succumbing to every new trend, we aim to create a classic and chic look, with designs and styles that are not only relevant now, but will look great in years to come.
Where can one buy the products?
The Anita Mastectomy Basic Bras can be found at various lingerie outlets countrywide. Visit the Facebook page at @anitasa.pvn to locate your nearest outlet.
Anita garments are designed to achieve compression that helps with healing and maintain circulation in the affacted areas by reducing the movement of the breasts post surgery. With an augmentation, it helps with the final placement of the internal prosthesis.
