I'm Jo and I run my little online shop, in a lovely place by the sea in Sussex (UK - just along from Brighton), and I have been lucky enough to have been doing so full-time since 2007. My little shop was born into the world as "Silicone-Sally", which was a cheeky play on Silicone Valley, as well as being quite easy to remember. The business grew, and the kind of women coming to me for help changed as word spread about my products, so I decided to rebrand simply to "Jo Thornton" in 2013. I wanted all those ladies who needed help after surgery or were more self-concious about their purchase, to know that I am here, not a big impersonal shop, and I'd love to help.
The company started with a simple goal: to give ladies a wider range of breast enhancers than the shops provide, at much better prices. I know that not every woman is the same size and shape and deserves to be able to buy the breast enhancer that she needs to fit her bra, and give her the boost she wants. Not only do we all have different size and shape breasts, but we also want different things from different outfits and bras, and deserve to have those needs catered for.
Over the last few years I have managed to grow and achieve this goal, and I'm now very proud to have the biggest and best breast enhancer/chicken fillets range in the UK - woohoo! I added breast forms/prosthetic breasts to my range back in 2008 to help serve the trans and non-binary community, and now have had the absolute pleasure of helping thousands of customers on their life journeys.
I love the challenge of running a small business, and I love hearing your stories & being able to help.
My Mum is onboard with the company, as my only behind-the-scenes employee, helping with the stock side of things, so we really are a small family business! I love you Mum :)
