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.
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.
It’s been five years since my preventative double mastectomy and subsequent reconstruction surgeries, and I’m only just beginning to feel confident in my new body. On the other side of my healing journey – after four surgeries, surgical drains, tissue expanders, and three different sets of implants – I immediately felt myself alleviated of an emotional burden so enormous that I honestly feel physically lighter. I no longer have to worry quite so much about a future cancer diagnosis, but I had difficulty coming to terms with my new breasts.
Because we hate drains so much, and wanted to make the lives of everyone going through a mastectomy as easy as possible, we designed the Miena Robe 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.
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. By prioritizing your comfort, however, you can make the process a little bit easier as you feel better each day. 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.
