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.
Knowing how many bras you need after your single or double mastectomy can feel just as puzzling as knowing what bras to get in the first place. There are so many stages to surgery, recovery, treatment (and beyond!) that we need bras for. We are here to help you navigate the question: “how many post-mastectomy bras do I need?”
Post-mastectomy style can be tricky. No matter what kind of surgery you’ve had, what your reconstructive choice is, or where you find yourself in your post-mastectomy adventure, we have fit and fashion tips that are sure to inspire once you have healed from your breast surgery.
We can probably all agree that the average post-mastectomy bra at a mastectomy shop is kind of, well, THE WORST. Finding the right bra for your body is already tough enough when you have “regular” boobs, but now that yours have been removed because of a mastectomy, or if you are in the process of reconstructing, things are even trickier, more complicated, and seemingly impossible.
So your wife was diagnosed with breast cancer or a genetic mutation and is now planning to undergo a mastectomy. We know how you must be overwhelmed, scared and a little unsure of how to help her through all of this, but you are not alone.
It is hard to feel sexy when your whole world feels entirely un-sexy: Your breasts have been unceremoniously removed from your mastectomy, you’ve lost all of your hair, your eyelashes, and are battling with medically induced menopause and vaginal dryness. But when you ARE in a space to re-discover and reclaim your sexuality post-diagnosis, there are some different creative ways you can begin to rediscover your sexual self in safe, beautiful ways.
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!)

We can’t even begin to tell you how excited we are to be able to present this to you all. It’s about time the world saw some swimsuits designed with breast cancer patients in mind, that are actually cute and work for a range of different ages, not just your granny’s. You already know that some of the ones out there right now are kinda meh. And we just couldn’t leave it like that anymore! We’re not going to settle with our bras, we’re not going to settle with our swimsuits, we’re not going to settle. Period. That’s it.
Because despite the good news of being "finished" with cancer, and despite being given permission to press play on my life, the mark of breast cancer was still very much with me. Though I may have escaped its grip, my body was forever altered.
When I was diagnosed with breast cancer, I was immediately faced with some serious decisions to make. Decisions about my body, how to deal with removing the cancer and what type of reconstruction were incredibly difficult. These decisions would literally affect how I look and feel for the remainder of my life.
