Filling the gap… Bra’s and things
At 23 years of age, it was a Breast Cancer diagnosis that changed Kamya’s direction in more ways than one…
It was through a mutual friend that Tricia and Claudine first met Kamya. Her inspiration to design and supply attractive and sexy bras and other support items came after her own personal experience purchasing after a mastectomy. She now has eyes on filling the gap and helping other young women embrace their feminine as they move through breast cancer. Thank you Kamya for sharing your vision and inspiring others… Read more about Kamya here

What is the business you have created?
KAMYA/#2sexy is a NZ brand that offers beautiful lingerie exclusively for women who have undergone surgery related to breast cancer. We cater to all shapes, sizes and surgical operations. We can custom make our bras just to suit you. KAMYA understands the frustration when bra shopping with a prosthesis
What is the inspiration behind this?
Being diagnosed with ductal carcinoma in-situ (DCIS) at a young age I have experienced the distress of initial diagnosis as well as bra shopping after the surgery. After having a mastectomy, I understand the difficulty that women face to look and feel confidence and feminine.
How do you see this will support others?
We give women their confidence back. Not only do we provide bras, we also provide courage and motivation. Our service is our point of difference. We know what it’s like to feel like an outsider at a lingerie shop.
What is worthwhile knowing when purchasing these types of products or services?
Mastectomy bras are tricky! Clearly our women have gone through life changing situations. It is worthwhile knowing that this too will eventually pass.
What would you recommend around how to select the best fit product or service?
When you order one size you get three in similar sizes! For example if you order a 10b we will send you a 10a and a 10c just so you can find your exact fit! Make sure it is comfy and you are able to wear it without it hurting your skin. Your body has gone through a roller-coaster, look after it!
