The holiday season is all about showing others around you how much you care. For our community, and especially for those who may not have support or are feeling the emotional pressures from the season, supporting the women around you is essential.
In honor of our monthly theme of support, we started the conversation over on our Instagram and asked, “What was the last thing someone did for you that made you feel supported?” We feel so blessed that we can have these honest, real and raw conversations with you all, and are so appreciative of our followers who chat with us on these personal topics. Here’s some of what you ladies shared!
For me, I love a random call from a bestie, that tells me that I’m doing a good job, and they are proud of me. Sometimes the simplest words can provide so much encouragement and support when you’re feeling down or in doubt. We really do rise by lifting others.
I’d love to hear your answer! Share the last thing someone did that made you feel supported below and share some support as well to our amazing community! Use this as some inspiration for paying it forward this season and a reminder to give love to those who need it. And remember, you are NEVER ALONE.

It is hard to feel sexy when your whole world feels entirely un-sexy: Your breasts have been unceremoniously removed from your mastectomy, you’ve lost all of your hair, your eyelashes, and are battling with medically induced menopause and vaginal dryness. Not to mention, when we are feeling deep sorrow, fear, that we are alone, anxiety or/and depression, the last thing we feel is sexy.
Furthermore, true self-love, self-acceptance and your sexuality can be the furthest thing from your mind and body when dealing with a breast cancer diagnosis or breast surgery. It can be a long emotional road to get back to a place where you are feeling good about your body again. But when you ARE in a space to re-discover and reclaim your sexuality post-diagnosis, there are some different creative ways you can begin to rediscover your sexual self in safe, beautiful ways.
Being as comfortable as possible after surgery is the number one priority. Your mobility may not be at its best, so a bra with a front closure is a recommended post-surgical bra for easy post-op dressing and comfortability. You’ll want a front closure post-mastectomy bra with super plush material that is soft to the touch yet also functional for your post-surgical needs, like our luxurious and pocketed Front Closure. Voted Best Post-Mastectomy Bra by InStyle Magazine. This wireless favorite Front Closure Bra is one of the very best front-closure recovery bras around thanks to its unique combination of softness, adjustability and style.
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?!
