Shopping for lingerie can be extremely trying emotionally, and it’s even more so if you’re a breast cancer patient or survivor. If slipping into your favourite lingerie is no longer an option during your breast cancer journey – whether it’s due to surgery, lack of support, weight fluctuations, or other factors – there are still intimate apparels on the market that are right for you.
Whether you’ve undergone a lumpectomy to remove a lump, a mastectomy (the removal of one or both breasts, partially or completely), reconstructive surgery, or your skin is feeling particularly sensitive due to radiation or chemotherapy, there are still plenty of bra options dedicated to the needs of those with breast cancer.
It’s imperative that you get a new bra that suits your needs and requirements – it’ll not only provide you with comfort and support, but you might also feel more confident and yourself again. With the right brand behind you, picking out the ideal bra can be an empowering experience.
Here, we’ve rounded up three local brands that offer stylish and comfortable bras that will see you through your breast cancer journey.
