Mastectomy bras are different from other bras in many ways. First, they contain extra soft linings. It’s common after breast surgery to have sensitive skin from scarring, especially in the first few months when the skin is healing. This lining ensures the bras will be comfortable for all-day wear. There are also many non-wired options that contain a thick underband and supportive seams which add to the level of secureness and comfort these bras provide. The straps of mastectomy bras are also different in that they are wide and adjustable, giving you a variety of fitting options.
The Lori Goldstein x AnaOno is about bringing strength, bringing hope, bringing awareness, bringing a community together. This curated collection was created in honor of those who have fought a battle against Triple Negative Breast Cancer. Each model photographed in this collection has their own story about Triple Negative Breast Cancer and about their journey through the disease. Read along to learn about each of the obstacles they faced and how they overcame them and the disease.
In 1998, a federal law went into place that provides protections to patients who choose to have breast reconstruction in connection with a mastectomy. Even though the Women's Health and Cancer Rights Act (WHCRA) has been around for nearly 20 years, we are contacted far too often by women wishing they had the choice to reconstruct, or knew that they even had the option following their mastectomy. We always advocate that breast reconstruction is a personal choice. It's your body, and it's your decision, but we all deserve to know more about our options.
The Lori Goldstein x AnaOno collection is more than just adding cute colorful patterns to our products. It's about bringing strength, bringing hope, bringing awareness. This curated collection is here for everyone to learn and understand more about Triple Negative Breast and learn how important donating and advocating for the disease really is. Each person involved within the creation and the exportation of the collection has had their own personal experience with Triple Negative Breast and we would like to share their inspiring stories with all of you.
Introducing the new Lori Goldstein x AnaOno collection to you. Over the past year I have been working with celebrity stylist and designer Lori Goldstein to design and produce a fun-loving collection to honor the Triple Negative Breast Cancer Community. Triple Negative Breast Cancer really hit home for myself and Lori so we decided to work together to create something to honor and commemorate those that we have lost. We have worked closely with the Triple Negative Breast Cancer Foundation for some time now, and we wanted to make a big contribution to help fund for research towards Triple Negative Breast Cancer.
Pinktober is upon us. AnaOno and the breasties want to remind you all that October is not the time for Pink Washing. What is pink washing? This is the common practice of exploiting the pink ribbon in effort to sell and profit from products that do not go back to the cause of which they are promoting. Not every pink ribbon on every product has purpose beyond “awareness.” If you love pink, and you love pink ribbons, that is not the problem, companies that false advertise or market products with the hidden purpose of “Curing Breast Cancer” but do not donate back to a cause for further treatments and research for breast cancer, is Pink Washing. If you want to learn more about pink washing, how to become more informed about pink washing and want to learn how to support this movement, please continue reading.
Living with a breast cancer diagnosis is difficult. Finding the right words to describe what you’re going through and making sense of it all can be overwhelming and confusing. Whenever we’re not sure where to turn, we turn to music. Listening to music has the power to inspire us and bring us joy and hope during times we may feel hopeless. Whether you have breast cancer, have a family member with cancer, or are a caregiver, turn up the volume and get ready to find your breast fight song with the ten best songs about fighting cancer.
