One of the pieces donated by milliner Nerida Fraiman possesses and estimated worth of over £1,000. The item is hand-stitched with individual peacock feathers and has a diamanté jewel globe in the centre.

Another piece, designed by award-winning novelist Naomi Alderman, has written into it a short story by the author about a woman’s relationship with her breasts.

Esther Rantzen, Maureen Lipman, Isla Fisher and Kelly Brook have also designed bras for the breast cancer charity Cancerkin and the Jewish Community Centre for London.

The lingerie collection will go on show at a charity event at The Comedy Store in London on Monday 21 February.

The high-profile fundraiser for breast cancer comes as it emerged that a British woman’s risk of developing the disease has risen to one in eight from one in nine, according to Cancer Research UK.
