It all started when...
The founders met at the Susan G. Women 5K in 2016. The stars were aligned the day the only dedicated female breast surgeon in Prince George's County, Maryland and the business minded beauty queen both decided to walk the 5K in support of Breast Care for Washington. Dr. Hampton and Ms. Jones bonded over their passion for breast cancer survivors. The rest is history.
Cherry Blossom Intimates, opening in Summer 2018 at Woodmore Towne Centre, is the source of intimate-wear for breast cancer survivors and women who seek proper bra fit in the Washington, District of Columbia metropolitan area.
Cherry Blossom Intimates will transform the shopping experience of breast cancer survivors by providing a boutique-like atmosphere for post-mastectomy breast prostheses. The store also offers custom color-matched, one of a kind silicone breast prostheses as well as breast forms, mastectomy bras and a host of other post-surgical supplies. Cherry Blossom will accept all major insurance carriers and will handle all of the medical billing.
Cherry Blossom Intimates leadership understands that they are disrupting the mastectomy bra and prosthetic industries. Co-founder, and Miss District of Columbia USA 2016, Jasmine Jones states, “Women of all shapes and sizes and from all medical backgrounds deserve a fantastic intimate wear shopping experience-- and Cherry Blossom Intimates is ready to give it to them.”
In addition to offering bras for survivors, Cherry Blossom Intimates offers options for women who wear larger size bras. The store will carry up to N cup bras and 3X panties.
Service is paramount at CBI, “I have always focused my practice on delivering great, state of the art services in a personalized manner. This has made my personal practice a sought out facility in Prince George’s County. I will bring this high level of service with a personal touch to Cherry Blossom Intimates so that each customer feels like a member of our family,” says co-founder Dr. Regina Hampton.

Because of them we can
Entrepreneurs Dr. Regina Hampton and Jasmine Jones are making it their mission to help breast cancer survivors feel confident and beautiful with the upcoming opening of their custom prosthetics and lingerie store in the D.C. area.
Women fighting breast cancer often find themselves mired in a whirlwind of doctors’ visits, chemotherapy sessions, and ongoing bouts of illness triggered by debilitating treatments. These treatments, such as chemotherapy, mastectomies, and radiation, only add to the litany of worries breast cancer survivors face.
A boutique designed for breast cancer survivors will open its doors next spring in Prince George's County. Founded by Breast Cancer Surgeon Dr. Regina Hampton, one of the few breast care surgeons in the county, Cherry Blossom Intimates will be a place where survivors can feel beautiful and comfortable with their bodies.
