A UK intimates entrepreneur a Hospital Bra, which is made of germ-fighting bamboo fiber.
Invented by lingerie store owner Elle Terry-Dawson, the bra’s front fastening design, lack of underwires and special padding ensures comfort during recovery and make it easier to change dressings.
Terry-Dawson was inspired to create the bra after undergoing breast surgery herself, and now hopes her design will help others. Presently, she is talking to several London physicians who are interested in offering the bra to their patients during the recovery process.
Specially treated bamboo fabrics are growing in popularity for their anti-bacterial properties, and the environmentally friendly nature of the plant itself, which grows quickly and requires little water. The bra designed by Terry-Dawson is now available online at hospitalbra.com.
