Why The Wirefree Bra Is Your New Best Friend After Surgery

Why The Wirefree Bra Is Your New Best Friend After Surgery

June 17, 2019

After a mastectomy and reconstructive surgery, your f(oo)bs don’t require the same kind of bra style or support they used to. Same for the flat and fabulous ladies out there. Underwires are now ill fitting, and oftentimes very uncomfortable. Not to mention, underwires often can cause unnecessary pain after breast surgery.  Different reconstruction options yield different results, so molded cups that leave gaps and puckering are no longer a viable option. So, what’s a girl to do? 

Meet your new BFF: The Wirefree Bra. Wireless, cupless bras are the new essentials to your lingerie drawer, because they work for you if you have two breasts, one breast, or no breasts at all.

The Wake of Confidence After Breast Cancer

The Wake of Confidence After Breast Cancer

June 14, 2019

Guest blog: Kristin Moya

I said goodbye to the thoughts that were consuming my mind and began to embrace the start of a new life. That is, life after cancer. Boy is this life sweet!! For the first time in forever I felt like ME once again. In all honesty, coming from a time where inflammation was the new norm because of the amount of steroids and chemotherapy I received, my days of looking in the mirror suddenly became a joy as I started to dwell on the fact that my hair was getting longer and my body was toned. I had ultimately reached a phase where my main desire was to bring sexy back into the life after cancer - where I was no longer facing many of the challenges I once had, but instead living my best life. Why should I hide my scars? Why should I ever feel uncomfortable in my own skin?

Why Wear a Bra At All?

Why Wear a Bra At All?

June 06, 2019 2 Comments

We all know what training bras are right? The little, flimsy bralettes worn by little girls who haven’t quite developed a bust yet. It’s considered a rite of passage for a girl to don the garment when her mother feels she’s going from “little girl” to “young lady.” She doesn't need a bra, but wears it anyway.

The Softest Bras Ever: Your Boobs will Thank You

The Softest Bras Ever: Your Boobs will Thank You

June 05, 2019 1 Comment

When it comes to finding a comfortable bra, especially post-surgery or after a mastectomy, we know it’s all about finding a super soft bra. What makes one post-mastectomy bra style soft, versus other wirefree bra styles ridiculously, outrageously, and HEAVENLY soft? While that may seem like an obvious answer, it can be difficult to know what specific materials we want or need when shopping for a bra, because often times, we don’t know what materials to look for. We all know cotton is soft, but most bras made of cotton are only moderately soft, and don’t give our bodies that skin-on-skin or barely-there feeling we all crave, and when healing from a breast surgery or recovering after radiation therapy, moderate levels of softness just isn't good enough. You need the dreamiest, most supple, and sensual of fabrics that will make you feel like you are floating in a creamy, fluffy cloud. You need modal.

This is not the case with Dr. Jonathan Bank, a plastic surgeon who’s on a mission to help those of us with mastectomies embrace our scars and newly reconstructed breasts (aka (f)oobs) with pride & confidence.  And we just had to share it with you!

AN ARTIST & THRIVER’S TIPS FOR RECLAIMING YOURSELF THROUGH CREATIVITY

AN ARTIST & THRIVER’S TIPS FOR RECLAIMING YOURSELF THROUGH CREATIVITY

April 13, 2019 5 Comments

Guest Post: Katharine Doughty

When I found a lump in my chest in early 2010, I was ten years into a series of 26 self-portraits with four 4 images to complete. A theme of reclaiming runs throughout the project: reclaiming of self-representation, of our personal and collective stories and the power of visual image. Be it ten years or ten minutes, the essential gift is the same: focused discovery and reflection via the arts allows us to be a witness to ourselves. To hear and respond creatively to our bodies with our bodies is to reclaim a role in the healing of our bodies.

Overcoming the Complications of a Rare Cancer

Overcoming the Complications of a Rare Cancer

When he drifted off to sleep, his lips pursed and we snuggled for a moment on that cold November afternoon. Upon standing, I felt a twinge of pain in my right nipple. I noted he didn’t nurse on that side so it couldn’t have been anything he might have done while nursing. Besides, the only pain I had ever experienced breastfeeding was at the newborn stage when the baby was learning to latch.

After I set him in his crib, I slipped in to my bathroom to examine my nipple. A slight crack with a tiny bit of blood appeared out of nowhere.

IT FEELS DIFFERENT TODAY

IT FEELS DIFFERENT TODAY

February 21, 2019 1 Comment

It feels different today. It’s been 9 years, this month, that I was diagnosed with breast cancer. This month, February, has taken on a whole new purpose for me these last 3 years. Each year since 2010, it has been cancer reminder, think again about cancer, cancerversary, birthday. But in 2016, when Champagne Joy asked me if I would be interested in doing an AnaOno fashion show at New York Fashion Week with her and #Cancerland, things began to change.
