    The (re)Issue

    What is a fashion form? Great question. We talk a lot about breast forms and breast prosthetics, but what is a fashion form? Here at AnaOno, we know it isn’t about the “breasts” it’s about how you want to express yourself.

    Finding the perfect bra can be a pain in the you-know-what. From uncomfortable straps that always slip, loose-fitting or too-tight bands, or cups that never lay just right, you’re definitely not alone if you’ve asked yourself, “How should a bra fit me?”

Gina was diagnosed with Paget's Disease in 2004, shortly after the birth of her second child. She underwent a mastectomy of the right breast.

    It's tough to know what to do when someone you know gets cancer, let alone what you can give to show you care. While flowers are certainly a nice gesture, giving more thoughtful and useful gifts to someone in your life undergoing cancer treatment will go further in helping during their hard days ahead.

    We come in all different shapes and sizes — breasts included. We should celebrate breast diversity, whether or not you identify as a woman. But if you are curious about your breast type for bra buying purposes, we are here for you. 
    You are not to blame for your poor grasp of what it is to say, but it's essential to make an effort to connect with people and reach out when someone is diagnosed with cancer. There are no specific guidelines or rule books; however, here are six things you can say to someone with cancer.

    If you’ve ever felt stuck shopping for a bra that only fits the largest breast, you’re in luck: There are bras for asymmetrical breasts that accommodate breasts of any shape and size, as well as breast forms.

    Surgery can leave nipples in new spots, pointing in different directions, or overall, just more noticeable than before. After surgery, you may want something to protect and smooth out your nipples. All our bras are pocketed, and most come with removable modesty pads. Modesty pads can be great to achieve symmetry, hide nipples, and provide a little extra padding.

    There’s no denying that mastectomy tattoos can be both beautiful, inspiring and badass. For many people affected by breast cancer, it’s the last step in the mastectomy and breast reconstruction journey that symbolizes rebirth and empowers them to move into the next chapter of their lives. By adorning their bodies in a highly personal design, these individuals are taking back their power.
