Breast Cancer to Organic Lingerie With Melanie Gontier

After her first battle with breast cancer 6 years ago, Melanie Gontier was looking for comfortable bras to wear after being left with a 20 cm scar after a tumorectomy. She came to realize the difficulty of finding organic and safe cotton bras with no underwire. And most of the bras that she did find were either dull, lacking fun colors or really expensive. This inspired her to begin designing her own.

After 6 years and 8 months including a second cancer with a full mastectomy, My Everyday Lingerie came to life offering colorful organic cotton underwear sets to provide safe and comfortable underwear for all women, everyday.
