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?
