Sister relationships look different for everyone. Some sisters are more like friends. Some sisters can feel more like soul mates. Some sisters aren’t even related by blood, but they are chosen, family. Some sisters may not get along well or even at all. No matter if you are best friends with your sister, or have a complex, layered relationship, it can be scary and emotional when it comes to caring for them through a genetic mutation diagnosis or a breast cancer diagnosis.
Navigating the waters through mastectomies, treatment plans, and reconstructive processes can be complicated and difficult to understand at times. We know because we’ve been there. So if you are here looking for advice on how to love your sister through their breast surgeries, we can help with that. Whether it be a mastectomy, breast reconstruction, explant or revision surgery follow along for what to say, do and give to your sister in need.
As your sister prepares for her reconstructive surgery, treat her to a top-of-the-line recovery bra for her to wear while she heals. When shopping for her, be sure to look for front closing bras that she can put on and clasp with minimal effort. The Rora Front Closure Bra is award-winning for a reason: Not only is it functional, but incredibly supportive, soft and thoughtfully designed to fit her body comfortably while her body is at it’s most sensitive. The fit, adjustability, softness, and versatility make it the perfect style to wear while she heals and beyond.
The Front Closure will keep her comfy throughout her entire healing process.
Once she’s able to regain control of motion, The Molly Bra is the perfect next style for your sister to transition into. Make fabric softness the ultimate priority by adding this stretchy, breathable style into her post-mastectomy wardrobe that will soothe radiation, post-surgery sensitivity, chronic pain, radiation burns, or post-surgery scars. This super-soft, luxurious post-surgical bra is both pretty and cozy so she will be able to wear it around the house to relax in, but also out to dinner with her favorite low cut top.
This bra will fit your sister no matter what kind of breast surgery or recovery she is in including, single or double mastectomy, reconstruction surgery, FLAP reconstruction, lumpectomy and other breast surgeries including reduction.
The Molly Bra works whether she is unilateral, flat or reconstructed.
To top off her post-mastectomy at around-the-house healing outfits, get her The Miena Robe. It will not only compliment her AnaOno breast cancer recovery bras, but is also equipped with a custom-designed drain management belt that will keep her drains out of sight and out of the way. Once she is done healing, she can remove the belt and pair it with her favorite PJs or just wear it for #selfcare days for years to come.
No matter what kind of reconstruction your sister is undergoing, we know you will make sure she has the bras and support she needs to make it through the challenging days ahead. After all, what are sisters for if not to love on and take care of each other?

This will allow you to feel better as you heal and adjust to the changes to your body.

If you’ve been wearing traditional underwire bras for years, you might just assume that bras are naturally a bit uncomfortable. But that doesn’t have to be the case. There are a number of unique bra styles that can help you feel much more comfortable throughout the day, especially if you’re in recovery from a breast surgery or treatment, such as reconstruction, mastectomy, lumpectomy, augmentation or radiation. Fortunately, AnaOno offers plenty of guidance in finding the best post-surgery bra.
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.
