For the past 15 years, as a breast cancer overcomer (Paget’s Disease), she is a speaker, writer, and mentor for women who face their own trials. 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.
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.
At AnaOno, we aim to make the lives of everyone going through a mastectomy as easy as possible, so we designed a collection of loungewear with a game-changing feature: The Drain Belt. Read along and learn how this one revolutionary design feature will change the way you heal from your mastectomy.
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.
After a unilateral or bilateral mastectomy, it can be challenging to find breast forms that work for you. Traditional prosthesis are not an option for everyone due to the expense and the weight. Enter, AnaOno F(oo)Bs, an affordable and lightweight alternative.
Surgery can leave nipples in new spots, pointing in different directions, oroverall, 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.
We talked to a few women who are on the road to self-acceptance after breast cancer and are setting their sights on the ultimate goal: self-celebration and true self-love after their mastectomy surgery. Follow along to read their own reflections, personal struggles with negative body image, and the personal mantras that are helping them work beyond their doubts.
We know how transformative exercise can be for your mind, body and emotions, and we also know how important staying active is to our AnaOno Community. That’s why we designed #AnaOnoActive: a range of sports bras designed to get your body moving. We designed these sports bras with your exact post-surgical comfort needs in mind. With ultra-soft breathable materials and a fit made to support your reconstructed foobs, these bras will help you feel like the badass you are while you build your body back up.
For most people getting dressed for a workout is the first step to getting your body moving. Getting ready prepares your mind, and gets you in the zone and ready to take on your goals. “I feel like getting dressed is half the battle and once you are dressed, you feel good. But if you don’t even feel good in getting dressed, you’re not going to feel good in doing a workout,” says Paige. That is the exact reason why we created The Paige Sports Bra.
