El Intimates - Support When You Need it the Most



My journey started in 2019 when I was diagnosed with breast cancer and had a mastectomy.

In one day, your whole life and your families’ lives are turned upside down.

I was allergic to the dressings used after the operation which made the recovery process very uncomfortable. Also, I did not have the knowledge of mastectomy bra’s and how they can help you adjust to your new body. All you see is the scars and feel the loss of your womanhood.

With God’s grace and amazing support from family and friends I survived this traumatic time and today I am in remission.

Going through this process as well as the reconstruction journey I realized the need for supportive underwear for all ladies not only mastectomy patients.

I started eL Intimates to supply exquisite lingerie to all women as well as mastectomy wear.

We do fittings at our premises in a private and positive environment.

I source and supply for all sizes using suppliers invested in making every woman feel special.

We also have an Imported range that is one of its kind and very unique.

At eL Intimates every woman will be treated with respect and the dignity they deserve.
