At Hello Cup one very special member of our team lost her mother to breast cancer. She’s young and it breaks our hearts that she lost her mother too soon in life. To mark Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we are releasing our most popular Hello Cup colour - blush - in all three sizes. It’s the perfect pink we think. Normally our blush cup only comes in large but we get asked all-the-time to bring it out in different sizes. We always knew we would, but in the back on our minds we felt that this special run needed to give back at the same time and what better cause than breast cancer.
Boobs are amazing things but I urge you, our Hello Cup friends, don’t just admire yours from afar - check them regularly. If you feel or notice any irregularity, please don’t be shy - head to your doctor and get an expert opinion. It literally could save your life.
If you empty your menstrual cup in the shower, like so many do, it’s also the perfect time to give your breasts a monthly check-in too. There are some great resources on what to look out for here: www.breastcancerfoundation.org.nz.
Our run of blush menstrual cup in all sizes will be for October only and 10% of sales will go to support the amazing work done by Breast Cancer Foundation NZ.
Breast cancer is the most common cancer for Kiwi women. Diagnosis turns lives upside down and while the survival rate is so much better these days than ever before, a diagnosis is devastating enough.
If you are thinking of getting a Hello Cup or already have one and need (yes, need) a new colour - then this is the month. They make a pretty cool gift too. Anyone can get involved by purchasing a Blush Hello Cup for themselves or a friend at www.thehellocup.com.
To mark the month, we’ve compiled some key information about the disease - to help everyone be a little better informed. With knowledge, there is hope.
What is Breast Cancer?
Breast cancer occurs when abnormal breast cells grow in an uncontrolled way, usually forming a tumour.
Is someone of a certain age most likely to be affected?Breast cancer is most likely to occur in women over the age of 50, but young women and men can get it too. It's most treatable when it’s found early, so it's important that you know what to look out for.

We recommend you select your period proof bikini swimwear set based on your underwear size, as our bikini tops are fully adjustable and designed to fit boobs of all shapes and sizes.
