Post-Mastectomy Holiday Must-Have 

There are so many steps to the surgical process after having a mastectomy. And while the process is different for every single person, being comfortable after surgery, no matter what the surgery is, is SO important. Post-mastectomy style is all about plush, cozy, ultra-soft fabrics and styles that support her, while making her feel her most beautiful. When shopping for your bestie, invest in a super-soft, luxurious robe that is functional for her post-surgical needs, and pretty too. The Miena Robe with Drain Management Belt checks all the boxes. This robe is extremely soft and so comfortable that it will become her go-to for lounging around the house. This post-mastectomy robe was designed with a drain management belt that gives her an easy place to put her drains post-surgery and allows her freedom to move around whenever she’s ready. The best part? Once she’s done healing she can remove the belt and wear the robe around the house like the queen she is.

Remind Them They Are BEAUTIFUL

After breast surgery we know how hard it is to feel comfortable and confident in your new body, that is why we created this beauty t-shirt to represent that we are all beautiful. Sometimes you need a little reminder from time to time, a reminder that you are BEAUTIFUL. Beauty is tough to see when you are going through cancer treatment, treat yourself to an easy daily affirmation in this comfy and cozy, relaxed fit, tee. Every time you look in the mirror you can remind yourself that you are beautiful. Perfect for everyday wear or a going to bed tee. This beautiful tee also matches our new LG x AnaOno collection that supports the Triple Negative Breast Cancer community.

Activewear To Get Her Moving Again 

Friends that work out together, stay together! If your bestie is sporty, we recommend gifting her The Bianca Front Closing Sports Bra. 

This revolutionary active style was designed with the same front-closing design as your trusty Rora Bra, but with buttery-soft, sweat-friendly active fabric. We’re obsessed with The Bianca, because it makes getting dressed for your workouts SO much easier. As you may know, your friend’s range of motion has been limited since her surgery.  Luckily, this sports bra was designed with front-closing hooks to make getting dressed no biggie. This sports bra is special because it was designed specifically for boobs and foobs that have been through breast cancer surgery and treatment. It is designed to keep her extremely comfortable, and easily accommodates pads for expanders, prostheses, or lightweight F(oo)B™ inserts as needed in the pocketed cups.

The Abby Wide Leg Pant is the ultimate effortless loungewear and recovery staple. The lightweight softer than cotton modal material is gentle on pain points and sensitive areas while keeping them looking great around the house or out running errands. In addition to the comfort that the Abby Pant provides, the Abby is also a perfect recovery piece that has an inner pocket to hold the drain belt in place to make the recovery process just a little bit easier.
