Big bra appeal's cups runneth over
The Takapuna resident’s home is brimming with up to 3000 secondhand bras ready to be sent to Vanuatu where many women struggle to afford them.
Sports bras for farmwork and maternity bras are in particularly high demand.
The response has been tremendous, with a range of bras up to j-cup size flooding in, says Mrs Kitayama-Moore.
"Colleagues sidle up to me with a bag and say don’t judge me by my underwear. You get to know your friends very intimately when they hand over bits of their underwear," she laughs.
Among those who have donated are women who have had a mastectomy or breast reduction surgery.
