Tina Doueihi is one of the gorgeous members of Reclaim Your Curves and is the creator of Red Fern Lingerie. Launched in May 2015 Tina is ensuring the underwear options for women who have faced breast surgery are as beautiful as ever. When your new breasts don't behave like the ones you lost finding underwear that is functional and beautiful can be difficult and costly. Thank you Tina.
It is always a pleasure for us at TLJ (The Lingerie Journal) to share the story of another heroine who has come through adversity and used her experience to positively affect the lives of women who face similar challenges, letting them know that they are not alone.
Breast cancer survivor Tina Doueihi, who was diagnosed in 2008, used her disappointment with finding favourable post-surgery lingerie as her inspiration for creating her own beautiful brand. Spoilt by her love of luxury makes like Simone Pérѐle, La Perla and Chantelle with which she previously adorned herself, Tina could not envision just simply giving up fashion for function after her treatment for breast cancer. She ideally wanted both concepts built into her lingerie and was quite sure that other women on their recovery journey wanted the same as well.
Consequently, out of her desire to re-outfit herself in functional yet stylish, modern, feminine and sexy post-surgery intimate apparel- and help other survivors do the same- the Australian entrepreneur founded her brand Red Fern lingerie a few years later. Her first collection “Joy of Marie” was launched earlier this year. But Tina’s efforts have not stopped there.
Besides working on making her brand a success both in Australia and internationally, she works with her local breast cancer charities promoting awareness of the disease and raising funds for research and treatment. However, she made time to speak to TLJ and tell us more about her brand and her work in the fight against the disease that changed the course of her life.
