    The (re)Issue

    Finding surgical bras after a mastectomy, lumpectomy, DIEP flap, reconstruction or other breast cancer surgery can be a difficult and exhausting endeavor. We're here to help make that process easier.  

    With the start of another new month, comes a new theme: RECOVERY. Recovery is crucial for our bodies, minds and overall health. It’s the time to give your body a break so that you can heal faster. However, as many of us know, recovery isn't just for after surgery. It's a constant. Once you've been through it, you are always trying to heal, rest, find a new version of yourself, and try styles and solutions that help you along the way. Here’s some helpful recovery tips and suggestions to keep in mind for your recovery.

    When it comes to finding the best-fitting bra, the process actually comes down to personal preference and not science. You have to decide what makes you the most comfortable and offers the right amount of support.

    We know how rocky recovery can be, which is why we’ve made it our mission to design bras to soothe your sensitive body throughout your healing process. Whether you’ve had a mastectomy, lumpectomy, DIEP Flap, explant, revision or exchange surgery, you deserve to feel comforted by your bra while you heal. Keep reading to learn about our go-to super-soft post-surgical bralettes. They’re sure to help you feel your most comfortable!

    Unfortunately, our doctors don’t exactly give us style advice on pretty bras to wear after a single mastectomy, and post-op care doesn’t come with a catalog on what bras will flatter our natural boob and flat side simultaneously. Is it really so much to ask for a little bit of guidance on how to ensure our self-confidence will heal along with our surgical side?! It’s enough to make anyone crazy, frustrated, and uncomfortable

    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.

    Comfort means different things to different people, but when it comes to bras, we can all agree on a few non-negotiable features that dial up the comfort. A unique combination of functional fabrics and irritation-reducing components ensures all-day comfort with zero pulling, lifting, or adjusting whatsoever.

    AnaOno Founder and Designer Dana had the chance to speak with Unite for HER Founder and CEO Sue Weldon about her organization. When Sue was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2004, she began searching for information on therapies that would complement the medical treatments she was receiving. What she discovered was a lack of easily accessible resources on topics like nutrition, acupuncture, massage, yoga, counseling, and other ways for breast cancer patients to enhance their wellness and care for their emotional, spiritual, and physical needs.

    So much uncertainty goes into breast cancer surgeries, whether it be a double or single mastectomy, DIEP Flap reconstruction, lumpectomy, exchange surgery, explant, reconstruction...the list goes on and on. Every surgery is so different, and your healing needs tend to vary from one surgery to the next.
