H&M have introduced a collection of bras for breast cancer survivors.

The Close to My Heart range was inspired by a member of the H&M team who was diagnosed with the disease.

After having breast removal surgery, she realised how difficult it was to find underwear.

When she returned to work, she decided to do something to change that.

The team created a collection which includes a basic bra, a lace bra and a front closure bra, all with mesh pockets to support a prostheses.

A spokesperson for H&M said: The difference between an ordinary bra and one for prostheses is that it covers more of the breast and that it has pockets for the protheses.

The design process focused on fit and comfort – the bras were developed in close collaboration with women who have had breast cancer and removed one of their breasts.
