The BreastTalk.co.uk Bra Appeal - Donate Unwanted Bras to Charity


Don't throw your old bras away - Donate them to charity with the BreastTalk.co.uk Bra Appeal.

We're asking for all your old bras as long as they are in good condition and straps and clasps are in good working order. Send them to us and we can distribute them to charities throughout the UK and overseas.

There are many women across the world who for some reason don't have a bra. They may be homeless in the UK or living in a country where the price of a bra is more than a meal for their family. The BreastTalk.co.uk Bra Appeal is trying to help these women by collecting and distributing your unwanted bras to charities in the UK and abroad.
A bra is something that all us women take for granted. Imagine being a 34DD or 36FF and not having a bra to support your breasts or wearing the wrong sized bra day in day out. The extra stress on your back can cause all kinds of problems including back-ache and back problems later in life. There are many women in the UK and around the world that put up with this every day. The BreastTalk.co.uk bra appeal is here to help them.

We will be sending the bras to various charities in the UK and overseas.

The first charity to benefit is Centrepoint who help homeless women and men in the UK. Their emergency hostel in Soho, London have a real need for bras to offer the young women who stay at the project. One project worker explained how they tried to squeeze a 'well endowed' young woman into a training bra and it wasn't ideal!!What types of Bra can you donate?
  • Any style - but not too sexy or see through
  • Any Size - Especially large or small sizes
  • US or European sizes are fine
  • Maternity or Nursing bras are fine

  • Please post all bras to the address below in a small Jiffy type bag or box.
  • YOU MUST wash all bras before you post them.
  • Check the straps and clasps are in working order and there are no rips or tears in the material.
  • Please attach a small piece of paper to each bra with the size. Use a paper clip and attach to one of the straps.
  • If you are sending new bras please let us know they are new.
Post your Bras to:

PO Box 71

That is a great idea - especially for this site, where people are going to be dropping sizes so don't need their bigger bras any more!

Hi just found this thread, has it been posted on other sites or parts of the MiniMins??

Hope you dont mind as I have copied it (without your personal email address) onto another site I use re loosing weight.

I think it would be useful if it was posted every now and then to remind people about the need.

I wish I had seen this last week as I binned 10 bras. I will keep a note so when I loose more weight I will send my old ones off.

Wow what a fantasic idea - so many people overlook the need for a bra and the impact it could have on some people (back ache etc)

This is such a great charity - I'm going to root through mine, my sisters and my mums collection now (especially my sister who probably has a bra for every outfit and in every colour, pattern and style imaginable!!)

Thats a fantastic idea, especially as i understand that its difficult being a bigger size. i'm a 34G and its really difficult finding bra's but for the less fortunate it must be horrible. xx <3 great idea.
