We work with Coppafeel Charity to help raise awareness of breast cancer in the UK.

They are the first breast cancer charity in the UK to solely create awareness amongst young people, with the aim of instilling the knowledge and tools they need to get to know their bodies. They want everyone to have the best possible chance of surviving breast cancer and they want breast cancer to be diagnosed at the earliest stage possible where survival rates are at their highest.

We at Next, fully support this mission, we want to work closely with this charity and to work on educating young people and teaching them and encouraging them to check your boobs and pecs regularly from a young age. We therefore add into all of our bras a care label to remind women to self check on a regular basis. See image attached. We've also designed a capsule range of bras suitable for woman that have gone through surgery and need to wear mastectomy bras. We worked incredibly closely with the charity and with real women who have gone through their own breast cancer journey.
