Nova UnderwearBreast-support garments for breast cancer patients
Very often medical/orthopaedic devices do not help a patient regain their everyday life. Cancer isolates the patient, making them feel vulnerable and the market needs fashionable underwear that is different from medical/orthopaedic devices, keeping the focus on the wearer.
The Project aims at creating an innovative collection of bras for women diagnosed with breast cancer. Usage of skin care fabrics, such as Crabmodal, a vegetal antibacterial fibre that helps skin healing and is good for ultra-sensitive skin; and mineral fabrics, which transform body heat into energy reflected through the skin, stimulating microcirculation and skin tone. This aids the healing process and provides comfort during treatment, combining a design adapted for post-surgery but which is also fashionable, to foster self-confidence, femininity and intimacy.
