Dr Christine Weber-Unger, mother of the current owner, was a key figure in creating lingerie and swimwear products for women who have undergone breast surgery. She went the extra mile to learn about the needs of women with special figure situations and went on to develop special products which would help such personal circumstances.
The special care bra range came about in the 60s following a case of illness within the company, which led to a colleague having to undergo breast surgery. Dr Weber-Unger began to sew fabric breast forms using simple materials which were filled with rice. The first bras containing pockets to hold breast forms were also designed at the same time. The first liquid-filled breast forms were then developed and sold at the end of the 60s.
The idea of using silicon to fill a casing made from material which closely resembled the skin, thus achieving a much more natural breast form, came about in the US at the beginning of the 70s. The idea was picked up on by Dr Weber-Unger and perfected to maturity for ANITA.
Breast forms and related lingerie and swimwear are still developed today, just as Dr Weber-Unger had envisaged.
