My name is Ellen Goldie - I am currently setting up a Luxury mastectomy lingerie brand called Hummingbird and need your help.

 

Introduction

Hummingbird is a luxury lingerie brand specially designed for women post mastectomy. I want to offer a collection of non-wired soft cup bras ideal for after reconstructive breast surgery and specialist pocketed mastectomy bras all with matching underwear.

For the brand to launch and develop I desperately need funding to help me promote the brand, professionally produce my garments and start sharing them with the women that need it.

 

 

The Hummingbird story

 

Our spirit

‘Keeping balance between spirit and nature’

Hummingbird was born form the idea of the Mayan legend. “The hummingbird is there to keep balance between spirit and nature” We intend to capture the bird’s beauty, freedom and weightlessness and translate this into luxurious lingerie, keeping balance between the spirit of our women and nature of the disease.

 

 

Our values

Here at Hummingbird we value the customer above all, listening and catering to your every need. We understand the emotional journey and we promise to support, empower and re-built self esteem through our beautiful and feminine lingerie.

 

A bit about me

My name is Ellen Goldie and I am a recent graduate of the London College of fashion. I studied the art of lingerie design for 4 years and have worked for various companies in London and New York.

 

 

  

My inspiration 

Elle Goldie, was inspired to design a range of post-op underwear after her grandmother was diagnosed with breast cancer five years ago. Goldie's Hummingbird range is designed to be feminine and sexy - something Goldie felt was lacking from a lot of post-op underwear ranges”

Elle - "I really wanted to create a bra that she would feel comfortable in, feminine and more like herself in, and start to celebrate her body again. She and so many other women have gone through such a massive change and have survived. It is to be celebrated that their bodies are tough and feminine." Huffington Post

 

Products

All our products are thoroughly researched, carefully thought through and intricately designed to create the most luxurious, soft and comfortable lingerie possible. All bras are completely without wires, with soft wings and fully adjustable straps.

The mastectomy bras in particular have silk pockets inside each cup to keep in place prosthetic inserts whilst being exquisitely soft against any skin and scarring.

 

 

Best of British

At Hummingbird we take great pride in our British heritage and luxurious lingerie. Using the highest quality silks and lace, all of our products are lovingly hand made right here in the UK.

Hummingbird will mainly be available through an online store, shipping worldwide and hopefully also stock in some boutiques and stores across the UK.
