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.
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.

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.

Recovering from breast surgery can be challenging. Whether you’ve had a mastectomy, reconstruction, lumpectomy or augmentation, there’s bound to be some soreness and limited range of motion during this time.

One of the best ways to make sure you’re comfortable during recovery is by choosing post-surgery clothing designed specifically for breast procedures. This will allow you to feel better as you heal and adjust to the changes to your body.
Our mission at AnaOno is to make sure patients, survivors and thrivers feel their best during recovery and beyond. Learn more about what makes for the best post-operation clothing and find out where to order some pieces for your own recovery or that of a loved one.

If you’ve been wearing traditional underwire bras for years, you might just assume that bras are naturally a bit uncomfortable. But that doesn’t have to be the case. There are a number of unique bra styles that can help you feel much more comfortable throughout the day, especially if you’re in recovery from a breast surgery or treatment, such as reconstruction, mastectomy, lumpectomy, augmentation or radiation. Fortunately, AnaOno offers plenty of guidance in finding the best post-surgery bra.
Dana had the chance to speak with Unite for HER Founder and CEO Sue Weldon about her organization. When Sue was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2004, she began searching for information on therapies that would complement the medical treatments she was receiving. What she discovered was a lack of easily accessible resources on topics like nutrition, acupuncture, massage, yoga, counseling and other ways for breast cancer patients to enhance their wellness and care for their emotional, spiritual, and physical needs.
