A High Quality Sports Bra… with a Purpose
Early Detection Saves Lives.
Check Know Prevent
A great sports bra is essential in any women’s closet – even if you’re not into working out, it’s the perfect comfy ‘lounge-at-home’ gear and can even be worn as a cropped tank top. Our Velisa Sports Bra is not only super comfy, but it’s also designed for medium impact activity offering fantastic support. And it is available in a range of colours and fabric designs.
But that’s just part of the story – what if we told you our unique bra could also help save lives?
About the Bra
Jenny De Oliveira, founder and Operations Director of Check Know Prevent, landed on a brilliant idea that is a world first – to use the inner lining of a bra to communicate how to properly check your breasts and what signs to look out for. Not only does it educate but wearing the bra acts as a frequent reminder to check your breasts.
But first and foremost, we know you want a great bra, hence we approached Di Schonegevel, a specialist in the field of undergarment construction, with over 20 years of experience in designing bras, to design and create our Velisa Sports Bra – and we’re proud to say it holds its own against any top brand sports bra in the market! Plus it has removeable padding, AND we are currently adapting the design to accommodate prosthetics for those who have had mastectomies.
At Check Know Prevent we are also passionate about supporting local communities and industries. For this reason, we are registered as an NPC, and for every 5 bras sold, we will give one to a grade 11 or 12 learner in need in partnership with a school support programme.
