13. Beware the Post Mastectomy Bra! It ain't no Victoria's Secret.

13. Beware the Post Mastectomy Bra! It ain't no Victoria's Secret.

Though I heard on the news the other day VS is losing "market share," so maybe they should think about diversifying. 

But for real? These Post-Mas suckers look like they were designed in the 1800's. I mean wrapping  a series of ACE Bandages around your chest is more flattering . Still, it is necessary to get fitted for one prior to going in for surgery, so off we went to the store. 

In UCLA there is a sweet little boutique called "Reflections" which is part of the Simms/ Mann Center for Integrative Oncology , a non -profit that assists in all aspects of post cancer couture. Seriously you can get EVERYTHING... bras, wigs, scarves, even prosthetic nipples! Great sales people.  But the bras kind of suck.

I mean, it's not as if I am going to be in the mood for seducing my husband directly after my surgery, but one would hope someone could come up with better looking bras than these. 

I mean they have to be comfortable and open from the front but would it kill them to have a pattern ? Any pattern? 

Also it seems that only white women get breast cancer.  At least on a google image search ... Hmmmmm.   The good news is, at least according to Dr D,  once my drains come out,  I can move to a front closing seamless sports bra.    You can  simply oder them from   Amazon .  so rather than looking like an Amish Virgin , I will instead look like a boobless soccer player. Definitely a step up.
