    millie 'Supporter'

    Pardon the pun, but that's literally what we need. Trust us to do what we say we'll do, and support our project with a gift that we can put to very practical use. Every penny will go towards technical development time, or meterage of fabric and elastics we can use to make a millie bra.

    Bra Kitty gift

    Sue's daughter Rebecca came up with this reward, so she and her friends can club together to gift a millie bra to someone. It works by adding your contribution to our bra ‘kitty’, and we’ll simply divide the kitty out into how many bras it will fund.
    Here’s why - after breast cancer, it sometimes difficult to afford new bras and some women have to make do with bras that aren't really suitable; with your gift, they won't have to. If you like the idea of helping someone to enjoy some much needed lingerie therapy, choose our Bra Kitty reward. It will go towards the costs of a millie bra to be gifted to the Nottingham Hospitals Charity or the charity, Keeping Abreast.

    Gift a millie to someone special

    This a very practical way to support someone close who's been through breast cancer treatment, because it's sometimes hard to know how you can help them. Your gift of a millie bra will remind them of just how special they really are. You'll need to check their size to be sure we can send their size. We'll gift wrap their new millie bra, adding a personal message, so you can bring a special smile to someone's face you'd like to see light up.

    Gift a bra to Charity

    Without stating the obvious, not everyone will want a bra for themselves, so this reward is for you.
    After breast cancer, 99% of women replace their entire bra wardrobe and it can be difficult to afford new bras. Many women ‘make do' with bras that aren't suitable, but with your gift, they won't need to. If you like the idea of Gifting someone much needed lingerie therapy, this is the reward for you.
    Your pledge will cover the cost of one millie bra, which we will gift to a woman on your behalf via the Nottingham Hospitals Charity, or Keeping Abreast charity.
    Your gift will not only help dress someone more comfortably, but will help us refine our design ideas as well via their feedback, so your gift will be helping the project twice.

    Treat yourself to a matching set

    When we gathered some of our millie friends together at our first ever Design Day, they told us with a resounding "yes please" that they'd like a matching set of bra and knickers. So we've created an elegant short style knicker, with lace detailing to match the bra.
    Select your matching bra and knicker set from our size chart, and when they're ready, we'll send them to you for you to enjoy, and invite you tell us what you think about them.

    Gift a bundle of bras to charity

    So, you don’t need a millie bra yourself, but you’d like to help make a difference?
    After breast cancer, 99% of women replace their entire bra wardrobe and it can be difficult to afford new bras. Many women ‘make do' with bras that aren't suitable, but with your gift, they won't need to.
    If you like the idea of helping someone to enjoy some much needed lingerie therapy, this is the reward for you. Your reward covers the cost of four millie bras, which we will gift on your behalf via the Nottingham Hospitals Charity, or the charity, Keeping Abreast. To show our commitment to helping women get dressed, we'll top your gift up, by adding another bra, and together we'll get five women dressed.
    Your gift will also help us to refine our design ideas as well via their feedback, so your gift will be supporting the project twice.
    To say 'Thank You', we'll send you a card to let you know when your bras have been gifted to your chosen charity.
