    Why I Had Explant Surgery: Almost exactly eight years to the day, this past January, I had explant surgery. I had not been feeling well for years and hoped the explant would help, which it did. Equally importantly, I did not feel whole, sexy or connected to my implanted chest. It always felt foreign to me. 

    We know how overwhelming it can be when your mom calls you up and you hear the news, “I have breast cancer.” She’s scared, and you probably are too. While her breast cancer diagnosis can make you feel unsteady and unsure of what to do, just know that you are not alone.  

    We know how good it feels to find a comfortable post-mastectomy bra that looks incredible and feels even better. So without further ado, please enjoy these gifs that perfectly demonstrates the joy and elation of finding the ultimate post-mastectomy bra (along with your personal reviews that inspired them!) 

    Does anyone want to talk about foobs?

    Sure, everyone wants to talk a lot about boobs. When am I going to get them? How big are they going to be? Some want bigger, some smaller, some have Instagram accounts full of selfies in body-con dresses with puckered lips and padded bras because hers are just right.
