Define Your Personal Style After Breast Cancer

Oct 11th 2015 at 11:11 PM

Once you’ve survived breast cancer, your personal style will probably change. But it doesn’t have to change for the worse! A growing number of retailers, both online and in-store, are beginning to sell clothes designed specifically for breast cancer survivors. If you have opted against reconstructive surgery, you can still find clothing that works for your new body.

Some retailers now offer mastectomy bras that are quite flirty and fun. No longer do you have to limit yourself to boring, outdated styles. Instead, you can find a bra that suits your personality and brings out your inner confidence. After all, you beat cancer; a bra should reflect the warrior spirit that you no doubt acquired, or possessed all along. If you’d prefer a bra with two traditional cups, many stores offer prosthesis pockets that are quite inexpensive.

There are also a growing number of swimsuits available for cancer survivors. You can find a suit that hits high enough on the chest and under the arms that it covers your scars, if you’d prefer to keep them covered. Some designers also make bathing suits with hidden prosthesis pockets, so you can wear the suit with confidence, knowing that nothing will fall out. As a bolder option, certain designers are making one-piece bathing suits, or monokinis, that don’t have coverage at the surgery site at all. These suits allow women to cover the parts that they would prefer to, while bravely letting their surgery scars show. These suits cover only the breast that remains, while the other side of your chest is left open and free.

In addition to clothing made exclusively for breast cancer survivors, women can find certain styles that increase their confidence if they’d prefer not to show their scars. Shawls, scarves and shoulder wraps all add an elegant, comfortable look without drawing attention to anything you’d rather hide. Shirts with high cut necks can offer chest coverage, and a cute hat can be a stylish accessory as well as cover hair that is still growing back in. If you live in the Bay Area, a mastectomy clothing boutique in Los Gatos offers a wide selection of styles. Visit this website to learn more.

Having breast cancer can be a harrowing experience, and just because you had it doesn’t mean you have to give up fashion or wear ill-fitting clothes. Part of the fun of recovery is getting to do normal, everyday things like looking for great pieces to add to your wardrobe. Visit this website to find a Mastectomy Clothing Boutique in Los Gatos.
