Business Mum of the Year Awarded to Bra Lady founder

Tracey-Jane Hughes, founder of Bra Lady, has won the prestigious Business Mum of the Year Award. The award was announced on International Women’s Day, and recognises T-J’s achievements of growing a successful business and supporting other women in business, whilst being a Mum to her 2 boys.

T-J’s journey hasn’t been an easy one, as with most successful businesses. Juggling a young family and growing a multi-channel retail business hasn’t been easy. T-J said, “I still meet women who’ve experienced the same poor bra fitting advice that I had 8 years ago, and until that’s changed, my job isn’t done. When I grew the home bra fitting service to the online bras4mums shop when my boys were under 3 years old, I had no idea that I’d now be running 3 websites, supporting franchisees develop their businesses, and supporting more women across the UK with a variety of specialist bras.

Support for bra ladies

Extra support for your bra lady business

Along with the initial training, and follow on training, the bra lady team have access to a range of support to help them grow their business.

Packages are available, or individual items, suiting all women’s circumstances and experience.

The support package for the bra lady team is now available to view.

If you’re considering becoming a bra lady, and you’re not sure about what level of support you would like, speak to t-j@bralady.co.uk to discuss your requirements.

We expect some ladies will require the Platinum package if they have no business experience in year one, but not all women will require this level of support.

There is no requirement to take up any of the marketing or support offered by BraLady, but you must stick to the terms and conditions signed after initial training.
