In August 2016, lingerie industry veteran Monica Harrington took a brave step back from her successful corporate career to start her own lingerie styling business.
Using her 30 years’ experience in the lingerie sector, Harrington now provides customised styling and fit advice for brands, private clients and women recovering from breast cancer.
She also offers prosthesis fittings and is currently working one day a week at Guys Cancer Centre in London, where she is making a big difference to the lives of women who have had breast surgery.
Harrington has fitted thousands of women of all shapes and sizes from all over the world and has worked for an impressive list of brands and retailers, including Triumph, Harrods, Selfridges, Fenwick, House of Fraser, John Lewis, Debenhams and Brown Thomas, not to mention many independent lingerie houses. She has been quoted in many magazines as a “Fit Expert”.
Using this experience and knowledge and, after completing a qualification in training from the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development, she designed and implemented the “Made To Measure” training programme for Triumph, which was rolled out across various geographies and in many of the key retail stores in the UK.
Harrington has also worked closely with the charity Breast Cancer Care and has created training programmes to educate lingerie bra fitters who work in retail stores.
