A SCHOOL in High Wycombe has celebrated a former pupil who went on to achieve a national award for her 'game-changing' bra innovation.

Ex-Wycombe High School student Kate Taylor is celebrating this week after winning an award for her new bra design which tackles breast asymmetry.

She hopes her design through her company Evenly, will empower women worldwide and boost their self-esteem

Her invention has won her a prestigious Innovate UK Women In Innovation Award and on Thursday, February 23, a special purple plaque was unveiled at her old school, to mark her amazing achievement.

Kate said: “Winning this award is a huge privilege to me personally but also, I see it as a huge boost to the millions of women globally who are struggling with the impacts of severe breast asymmetry.

“It’s wonderful to return to Wycombe High School, a place that has so many happy memories, and be recognised in this way. I’m chuffed to bits”.

Breast asymmetry affects 90 per cent of women and Kate’s invention provides an effective and stylish non-surgical solution, no matter what the cause.

Kate added: “We want to educate, support and inspire women with breast asymmetry to embrace their uniqueness and gain comfort and confidence through our bra and community”. 

Wycombe High Headteacher, Nicola Renyard, added: “We are really proud of all the many former Wycombe High students who have gone on to achieve so many great things after leaving school.

"Kate is clearly one of them, which is we are so delighted that she chose Wycombe High School as the permanent home for her special purple plaque. It will now be a permanent symbol and a reminder of the many accomplishments of our alumnae as well as an inspiration to existing students”.
