The Bra Lounge at Future Dreams House offers a discrete and private fitting experience. Appointments are available three Mondays a month with Monica Harrington, each for up to an hour. On the fourth Monday, Monica hosts a Lingerie Styling workshop which provides an opportunity for a more open discussion on bras post treatment and surgery.

Monica Harrington is a specialist bra fitter with more than 30 years experience and an ambassador for Future Dreams helping those touched by breast cancer to find the right bras during treatment, post mastectomy, lumpectomy and reconstruction. DBS checked with an enhanced certificate, Monica is eligible to work with vulnerable adults.
Finding the right bras post-surgery can be complicated, whether you’ve had a mastectomy, breast reduction or augmentation. Having worked at Guy’s Hospital Cancer Centre, and leading private hospitals, fitting women with breast prostheses and advising on bra fitting post-reconstruction and partial breast prosthesis fitting, Monica understands the needs of those touched by breast cancer and can provide specialist product knowledge.
Each appointment is up to an hour long and held in the comfort of the Future Dreams Bra Lounge. Together you will explore the options available to you in lingerie, swimwear, and breast prostheses and how to wear them. If we have the item/s in stock, you can purchase them on the day. If not, they can be ordered.
A £10 donation is requested to secure your booking which can be offset against any bra and protheses purchased. There is no obligation to buy any of the suggested pieces.

"This is a fantastic idea… time and knowledge to get a proper fitting bra. Thank you Monica and Future Dreams."
"After having a double mastectomy with reconstruction I was left with uneven breasts, with a much smaller right side. Monica helped me pick out the perfect selection of bras and bikinis alongside a partial insert to fill out my right side to match my left. Afterwards you couldn’t tell my breasts were uneven at all! Monica is a complete lifesaver and she has helped me get my body confidence back a really difficult time."
"Monica put me at my ease and I became fascinated with the whole process. I tried on several makes of bras until she was satisfied that I had the best fitting one for my prosthetics. I came away wearing my new prosthetic and bra. Monica called me a week later to check that I was happy and confident wearing my prosthetics with the new bras. I have my life back and Monica made that possible with her skill, experience - and eye for detail."
Sylvie and Danielle began Future Dreams with just £100 in 2008. They believed nobody should face breast cancer alone. Their legacy lives on in Future Dreams House. We couldn’t continue to fund support services for those touched by breast cancer, raise awareness of breast cancer and promote early diagnosis and advance research into secondary breast cancer without your help. Please consider partnering with us or making a donation.
