What Do We Want?
Size 8-16, A-D cup ( 30-40 / 80-100 ) in good condition, including crop top styles.
Size 18+, A-D cup ( 42+ / 105+ ) - rare and precious bras - any condition will do.
Nursing bras including crop tops, ANY condition will do. If it will catch a leak it is better than nothing, which is the alternative.
E cup plus, ANY size - even rarer - you will know that if you've tried to buy them. Likely to be the only properly fitting bras that a woman gets in her life.
Mastectomy Bras and Breast Forms (prostheses) Like gold. If possible please send the box with the breast form/prosthesis, and put the relevant bras under the plastic mould, in the bottom of the box. These will be given to hospitals for distribution. If sending bras only, without breast forms/prostheses, please put a note in the bag/postpack so we don't miss-sort them.
Swimwear, any size. Swimwear is great for keeping warm if you are standing in the water fishing with a hand line for a couple of hours. It is also handy for coastal women who dive for cash crops.
Underpants, new. A girl without underpants does not go to school during her period.
Fabric Nappies, second hand or new. In some areas, fabric nappies are expensive to buy so mums often buy one disposable at a time. That money is better spent on food for Mum. (Nappies at drop off points in Victoria only please).
Given the number of breastfeeding women in our little community we're really hoping to collect a fair few nursing bras - ANY CONDITION.
