Going on dates before your mastectomy meant wearing your sexiest lingerie underneath your favorite dress. After your mastectomy…you get do the exact same thing! Just because you’ve undergone a breast cancer surgery doesn’t mean that this sacred (and fun!) ritual has to change. 

We know it can be intimidating to pick out a bra after a mastectomy, lumpectomy or ANY breast cancer surgery, but AnaOno Bras make date night shopping fun again. Whether you’re going on a first date or having a romantic at-home date, wearing the perfect lingerie is essential! Live your best flirty life, show your love (or just tease your partner) by following the following 5 rules to ensure your date night look is as stunning and beautiful as you are. 

Steer Clear Of Boring Bras 

When looking for a date night bra, leave the boring bras you would normally wear under a t-shirt in the drawer and opt for something a little more amped up. But remember, just because a design is clean and simple, doesn’t mean it’s boring! Clean and classic silhouettes can be sexy too. If you prefer more of a classic style, look for mesh inserts or lace detailing that can amp up the attitude of your foobs. The Delilah Bra’s intricate lace design detail and transparent back panel is sure to bring out your flirtatious side. This plush bra will not only keep your F(OO)Bs their comfiest all night long but will also look super sexy peeking out the top of your favorite top or dress. Go ahead, give ‘em a little tease ;) 

While The Delilah Bra is classic and simple, it is far from boring! Look for lace and mesh details to spice up your classic styles.

Lace, Lace, Lace 

When in doubt, lace will always work out--especially on date night! Unleash your inner bombshell in our all-time lacey favorite, The Gloria. As our sexiest, most ravishing style, The Gloria will compliment your foobs no matter what kind of breast surgery you’ve had. Whether you’ve undergone a lumpectomy, reconstruction or DIEP Flap, the sensual stretch lace, elegant seaming, and silk embellishments will help you feel sexy inside and out. Not only will it make you look amazing, but it will also make you feel amazing too. It is constructed thoughtfully to not irritate any sensitive skin areas, scar tissue or surgical sites. The underwire free design features fully lined soft cups that will keep your foobs comfy and your confidence sky-high.

Don’t Be Afraid To Show A Little Skin

Lingerie is something that we love to treat ourselves with, so if you’re going to invest your hard-earned money in it, show it off as apart of your outfit! Experiment with the underwear as outerwear trend by rocking bold and beautiful pieces like the Wirefront Wrap Front Camisole out on your date! This flirty camisole was designed to showcase your feminine side through intricate lace detailing, sexy wrap front v-neck, and super luxe modal material that will look (and feel) like a dream come true. Wear it with your favorite dark jeans and knee-high boots, or under a cool leather jacket out, and then back to the bedroom.

Make Sure Your Underwear Is always Matching!

Finally in a place to show off your full lingerie look? Better be prepared! Coordinating your bra to your underwear is a sure-fire way to spice things up when you’re ready to! Mixing and matching your pieces with like colors and materials is a creative way to create an alluring bedroom look. The Mesh Bikini Underwear comes in 3 different colors and looks fantastic with all of our bras. The super-soft, translucent mesh material is not only breathable but super sexy too. What better way to end date night, than to tease in the bedroom? 

 

End date night with a bang by revealing a matching bra and underwear set. The Gloria Bra goes with the Black Mesh Underwear (and your favorite black stilettos!) 

Dating after your mastectomy is stressful enough. Take it from Kristen Carbone’s post-mastectomy dating chronicles. You can shift your mindset from it being stressful to it being exciting by dressing up in something special. So whether it’s wearing something a little more lowcut, lacey or mesh, pick a style that brings out your inner goddess.

When I was diagnosed with breast cancer almost ten years ago, I had no idea that not everybody makes it. Now that I know that 1 out of 3 women diagnosed with breast cancer will develop metastatic breast cancer at some point in their lifetime, I can’t just accept that. WE have to do something about it. 

In 2020, for the fourth year in a row, AnaOno is partnering with #Cancerland in a New York Fashion Week event to raise funds for METAvivor.
