Friendly: Shirley Scholte, Gillian Horton and Katrina Lawson of Colleen's enjoy providing

Exceptional service and care
Colleen's has been offering services to
women touched by breast cancer for
more than 13 years.
Started by Colleen, who has recently
retired, it is now in the hands of new
owner Gillian Horton. The shop's look
may have changed but the service is still
the same, with Ms Horton knowing the
breast cancer journey only too well.
Colleen's is located in Dundas Court,
Phillip, and is so much more than just a
bra shop. It is a haven of support and
advice for the women of Canberra and
surrounding regions where they can find
practical help to encourage them to find
their new normal.
"Ladies walk in and out with every-
thing they need in this one-stop-shop,"
Ms Horton said.
"They are fitted privately and sensit-
ively for their prosthesis and can browse
through the shop's specially-designed
pocketed bras in beautiful, feminine
designs and colours, to suit young and old
If you don't want to wear a bra, try the
pocketed gym tops, T-shirts and spa-
ghetti strap tops also available.
One question the team at Colleen's are
asked constantly is 'How long will it take
for my hair to grow back?' Ms Horton
said there was no definitive answer, but
while there is an absence of hair,
Colleen's provides turbans, colourful
scarves and authentic wigs.
Water aerobics is very popular with
shop clients, who love the pocketed,
chlorine-resistant swimwear Colleen's
offer in a wide range of colours and
styles, which they can buy all year round.
For those with mobility concerns,
Colleen's will come to you to fit your
prosthesis and bra and also offers an
online shop providing the convenience of
shopping from your own home.
"The wellbeing of our client is our first
priority," Ms Horton said.
"We pride ourselves on offering you a
service and environment where we make
no compromises. It is our desire to offer
you a sensitive and complete breast care
