How It Feels When You Find The Perfect Mastectomy Bra

June 19, 2019

So you’ve had your double or single mastectomy, and now that you’re healed, and able to transition out of your oncologist prescribed compression bra after your surgery, you’ve been given the green light to find something cuter and more comfortable (WOO!)

But when you start shopping, you have a hard time finding something that is comfortable enough, something that fits your new body, and makes you feel PRETTY. You’re frustrated and upset, and you have every right to be. Why does finding something that fits your new body have to be SO HARD?!

Why The Wirefree Bra Is Your New Best Friend After Surgery

Why The Wirefree Bra Is Your New Best Friend After Surgery

June 17, 2019

After a mastectomy and reconstructive surgery, your f(oo)bs don’t require the same kind of bra style or support they used to. Same for the flat and fabulous ladies out there. Underwires are now ill fitting, and oftentimes very uncomfortable. Not to mention, underwires often can cause unnecessary pain after breast surgery.  Different reconstruction options yield different results, so molded cups that leave gaps and puckering are no longer a viable option. So, what’s a girl to do? 

Meet your new BFF: The Wirefree Bra. Wireless, cupless bras are the new essentials to your lingerie drawer, because they work for you if you have two breasts, one breast, or no breasts at all.

The Wake of Confidence After Breast Cancer

The Wake of Confidence After Breast Cancer

June 14, 2019

Guest blog: Kristin Moya

I said goodbye to the thoughts that were consuming my mind and began to embrace the start of a new life. That is, life after cancer. Boy is this life sweet!! For the first time in forever I felt like ME once again. In all honesty, coming from a time where inflammation was the new norm because of the amount of steroids and chemotherapy I received, my days of looking in the mirror suddenly became a joy as I started to dwell on the fact that my hair was getting longer and my body was toned. I had ultimately reached a phase where my main desire was to bring sexy back into the life after cancer - where I was no longer facing many of the challenges I once had, but instead living my best life. Why should I hide my scars? Why should I ever feel uncomfortable in my own skin?

How Do I Find a Bra When I Only Have One Boob?

How Do I Find a Bra When I Only Have One Boob?

June 13, 2019

Unfortunately, our doctors don’t exactly give us style advice on pretty bras to wear after a single mastectomy, and post-op care doesn’t come with a catalogue on what bras will flatter our natural boob and flat side simultaneously. Is it really so much to ask for a little bit of guidance on how to ensure our self-confidence will heal along with our surgical side?! It’s enough to make anyone crazy, frustrated, and uncomfortable.

By now we’ve accepted that our doctors are the experts in cancer, not lingerie options. Fortunately, our team at AnaOno has seen it ALL, and have you covered (literally and physically), so you can find a unilateral bra that makes you feel comfortable and confident.

We know that sometimes, it may feel that our doctors don’t always get it. Especially how we may feel after leaving their office. This is not the case with Dr. Jonathan Bank, a plastic surgeon who’s on a mission to help those of us with mastectomies embrace our scars and newly reconstructed breasts (aka (f)oobs) with pride & confidence.  And we just had to share it with you!

AN ARTIST & THRIVER’S TIPS FOR RECLAIMING YOURSELF THROUGH CREATIVITY

AN ARTIST & THRIVER’S TIPS FOR RECLAIMING YOURSELF THROUGH CREATIVITY

April 13, 2019 5 Comments

Guest Post: Katharine Doughty

When I found a lump in my chest in early 2010, I was ten years into a series of 26 self-portraits with four 4 images to complete. A theme of reclaiming runs throughout the project: reclaiming of self-representation, of our personal and collective stories and the power of visual image. Be it ten years or ten minutes, the essential gift is the same: focused discovery and reflection via the arts allows us to be a witness to ourselves. To hear and respond creatively to our bodies with our bodies is to reclaim a role in the healing of our bodies.

Overcoming the Complications of a Rare Cancer

Overcoming the Complications of a Rare Cancer

Guest Post: Gina LaPapa

When he drifted off to sleep, his lips pursed and we snuggled for a moment on that cold November afternoon. Upon standing, I felt a twinge of pain in my right nipple. I noted he didn’t nurse on that side so it couldn’t have been anything he might have done while nursing. Besides, the only pain I had ever experienced breastfeeding was at the newborn stage when the baby was learning to latch.

After I set him in his crib, I slipped in to my bathroom to examine my nipple. A slight crack with a tiny bit of blood appeared out of nowhere.
