At a time when Breast Cancer affects one in eight women, Penneys is launching its first collection of leisure, nightwear, underwear and accessories developed for those who have experienced the deadly disease and undergone breast surgery. Conceived and designed with cancer patients and oncology nurses who trialled and tested the products, the collection has a focus on comfort and style and is designed to allow for ease of dressing post-surgery, with fabrics which are noted for their cooling qualities and soft touch.

A beautiful, feminine collection, the range also features a selection of items made with recycled or sustainable cotton and recycled polyester as part of the Primark Cares label.

The collection includes two styles of post-surgery bras and a range of products including lingerie, slippers, women’s jersey tees, sweats and cosmetic bags in a mauve and soft pink colour palette. The post-surgery two pack zip up bra is lightweight and designed for optimum comfort with a front and back closure to allow for ease of dressing immediately after surgery. There are also pockets for a prosthesis on either side and the fabric offers a soft and light touch against the skin.
