Success Story 28 October 2022

Region/Nation East of England
Programme Start Up Loans

Valiant Lingerie, based in the East of England, provides empowering lingerie for women who have been impacted by breast cancer or risk-reducing mastectomies. When Valiant Lingerie owner Eleanor underwent such a mastectomy herself at just 24, she found that the available post-surgery underwear was only beige and clinical, which had a real impact on her self-esteem. To do something about this, Eleanor took out a £6,500 loan through Start Up Loans delivery partner Virgin Start Ups to start her business. Valiant Lingerie manufactures its products locally, using only sustainable and recyclable fabric.
