Request Knockers

Knitted Knockers are either knit or crochet by volunteers and are gifted to mastectomy patients.

We are a community based organization and in order to keep costs down we try as far as possible to connect our recipients to volunteer knitters that are local to them. With that in mind, please contact the supplier closest to you first. If they are unable to help you, please email us at and we will help you find an alternative.

What information you will need to provide

In order to provide you with Knockers, we will need the following information from you:

  • your bra size – both the chest measurement and the cup size. eg. 36 C
  • your colour preference (choose from here) every effort will be made to supply your preferred colour but it is not always possible.
  • your contact details – phone number and email address
  • if you can’t collect, we will need your delivery address.


Although Knockers are gifted, if delivery is required, you will be asked to cover the courier costs. We would also appreciate it very much if you would donate a kit or two for our volunteers to make up.
