    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.​
    Just like dresses, shoes, and handbags, bras come in a wide variety of styles and types, with each one offering its own unique advantages and disadvantages. Having an assortment of bras in your lingerie drawer can help you put together looks that make you feel absolutely fabulous no matter what's on the agenda! Here are some of the most popular bra types to keep in your arsenal.

    Bralettes are a great way to get support and feel sexy. Check out this article from AnaOno to discover some different ways to style a bralette.

    Finding a bra that fits just right and is comfortable can be a challenge. Once you find the one that works for you, it’s hard to let go of it.
    Finding the right bra isn’t always as easy as walking into a store and picking one off the rack. If you have unique needs when it comes to your bras, traditional options might not work for you. That’s where AnaOno comes in. Learn more about our bras and how they can help you get the perfect fit.
    When shopping for bras, there are a few crucial things to keep in mind. Application - that is, where or when you plan to wear it - is probably the first and most important consideration. You wouldn't buy a sports bra for work or a push-up bra for the gym, of course. Beyond that, you need to think about materials, support levels, special features, and how to best flatter your unique body type.

    Are you looking for post-surgery bras? For some thrivers, it can be tough to find a style that’s suited to their shape after surgery. There are so many possible roads you can take, whether it’s reconstruction, using breast form inserts or being flat and fabulous. There are tons of breast reconstruction bras and pocketed bras for those with a certain type of post-surgery silhouette, but where can you find the best bras for a flat chest?

    At AnaOno, we celebrate flat and fabulous individuals every day. That’s why we’re delighted to walk you through what makes a great flat bra and show you where you can find them. Learn more about bras for flat chests and discover unique styles you’ll love on our site.

    When I was diagnosed with breast cancer almost ten years ago, I had no idea that not everybody makes it. Now that I know that 1 out of 3 women diagnosed with breast cancer will develop metastatic breast cancer at some point in their lifetime, I can’t just accept that. WE have to do something about it. 

    In 2020, for the fourth year in a row, AnaOno is partnering with #Cancerland in a New York Fashion Week event to raise funds for METAvivor.
