Nicola Jane is born
Nicola Jane began in our founder's attic! Back then, people were sewing pockets into regular bras which weren't always suitable. For the first time, proper mastectomy bras were available to all who needed them.01
The first Nicola Jane catalogue was produced in 1989.02
Brick and mortar
The Nicola Jane store in Chichester was opened in 1994.
NJ goes digital
In 1998, Nicola Jane took its first tentative steps into the digital age, with the very first website.
Building a brand
At the turn of the milennium, Nicola Jane launched its very first collection of own brand products. 16 years of experience went into making bras that our customers were asking for.05
