FAQ

About Ms Pomelo

  • Do you guarantee your product?
    • Yes we offer a lifetime guarantee on all our products. If a wire pops out or elastic stretches, we will fix it for you for free, just get in touch.

      This significantly prolongs the useful life of a bra and also helps the environment: presently there are no commercially available facilities for recycling the synthetic fibers in EU and the used bras end up either burned or buried in the landfill.

  • I am interested in learning more about bra health and hacks to help me choose bra by myself
    • The easiest thing is to come to our workshop, look at our blog, sign up for our newsletter or follow us on social media. We regularly publish helpful content, promote new products and organise competitions.

  • Are your products hypoallergenic? I get a reaction to Lycra
    • Our products contain elastane fibres (also known as Lycra or spandex) that come to c. 10% of total garment. However, all our products have cotton lining, so your breast touches softest high-quality breathable material.

  • What products do you offer?
    • We make lingerie for fuller cups and plus sizes – this includes bras and underwear. We offer regular, nursing and medical ranges. Our regular collection is sold online. Nursing, mastectomy post-op, and mastectomy fashion are sold off-line and through 3rd parties. If interested, please get in touch.

  • What traction do you have on the market as a new brand?
    • Our product has been tested by 11 NHS trusts and 5 Harley Street breast clinics, who recommend us to patients. We are named Top best brands for D+ bras by The Independent. We also have been shortlisted for ‘Best new plus-size brand’ by the British Plus-Size Awards. But our greatest achievement is praise we receive from our customers.

  • When did Ms Pomelo start making lingerie?
    • We started the Ms Pomelo label in London in 2015. We have been making plus-size bras in Europe for over 30 years.

  • What is the philosophy behind Ms Pomelo?
    • We believe that a great-fitting bra is the secret to looking and feeling amazing. We believe the bra should never hold you back, no matter what you are doing.

      Our aim is to create bras which support heavier chests comfortably all day long, and are elegant and durable. We are actively involved in the full life-cycle of a product, from the selection of the type of fabrics, laces and accessories used, through to the application of the tags and labels. The mills and workshops we use are best-in-class European establishments taking as much pride in their products as we do in ours.

      We also carry the flag for educating women on bra-health issues, ultimately entrusting the power of choosing well to them.

  • Where are your products made?
    • All items are manufactured in Europe out of EU-made materials. The product is made at our factory. We buy all input materials directly from the highest quality European suppliers and are 100% confident in the provenance of our product.

Washing

  • How should I wash Ms Pomelo lingerie?
    • It is safe to wash Ms Pomelo bras in the washing machine. We recommend using a wash bag to extend the life of your bra. Do not use fabric softener – it clogs up fibres and makes your bra less breathable. Click here to see our Product Care Guidelines.
