At AnaOno, our goal is to help you feel sexy, confident and comfortable as you embrace your survivor, thriver or previvor status. For some of us, sex isn't what it was before cancer, especially not right after receiving radiation treatment or having surgery.
Intimacy after mastectomy can be particularly challenging, but we've found that one of the best ways to prepare yourself for that next step is to find lingerie that boosts your confidence and makes you feel utterly desirable. Check out our top mastectomy bras for getting your groove back.
SEXY POST-MASTECTOMY BRAS
This stunning stretch lace bra features fully lined soft cups that lay smoothly across your chest. The delicate satin bow adds a sexy touch, while the low-cut plunge style shows off extra skin. The Gloria bra also has pockets to accommodate lightweight breast forms or prosthesis.
This super-soft modal bra comes with removable soft pad inserts to let you control your shape and appearance. It also features a fun geometric lace print that's playful and modern. Use the adjustable straps on the Jess bra to get a comfortable fit.

"As a longtime sex educator and breast cancer survivor, my path gives me the great gift of talking with many women about their sex lives before, during and after cancer diagnosis and treatment. I hear some stories of inspiration and hope, and many more of frustration and pain."

Dana Donofree and Alison Hinch talk with Dr. Timaree Schmit about the impact of breast cancer treatment on sexuality. A diagnosis of breast cancer means many things; while almost all facets of life can be affected by breast cancer, sexuality is the one that doctors are least comfortable discussing with patients. It's often only through the sisterhood of those who have experienced our reality that many women are able to find information, advice and support.
Sometimes we just need a little hope, like a love story that seems impossible even to the people in it. When Jenna Felder's wrote her guest post, we got just that. Sometimes, you just need to give yourself permission to try again.
