    The (re)Issue

    Living with a breast cancer diagnosis is difficult. Finding the right words to describe what you’re going through and making sense of it all can be overwhelming and confusing. Whenever we’re not sure where to turn, we turn to music. Listening to music has the power to inspire us and bring us joy and hope during times we may feel hopeless. Whether you have breast cancer, have a family member with cancer, or are a caregiver, turn up the volume and get ready to find your breast fight song with the ten best songs about fighting cancer.
    It’s possible to get your sexy back after the terrifying shock of your initial breast cancer diagnosis. After the mind bending chemo. After the body altering surgeries. The hair loss. The scars. Cancer can screw with us on many levels, but it can’t steal our femininity. The very essence that makes us women. Not if I have anything to do with it. 

    The end of chemotherapy treatments marks a respite from the exhausting physical, mental and emotional journey of cancer. It’s a time to celebrate and it’s also a time to recover. Your post-chemo body can be unrecognizable. Now there is a new task of learning how to take care of this new body. Transitioning your body back to all facets of normal life can be challenging, especially when it comes to intimacy.

    Surgery can leave nipples in new spots, pointing in different directions, or overall, 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.

    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.
