Additionally, the designer has created the 'Louise Listening' post-double mastectomy bra, 100% of the proceeds form which will help benefit the Hello Beautiful Foundation, a UK-based organisation that aims to 'strip out the negative energy associated with cancer, and in turn highlight the beauty that can be found within this struggle.'

The 'Stella' bra for Breast Cancer Awareness, £42, is available now.
