Post-Mastectomy Lingerie Love
We’ve said it in the past, but we have mixed feelings about Valentine’s Day, and maybe you do too – especially if you’re post-mastectomy.
Valentine’s week is here, which means the stores and your social media feeds are filled with advertisements for beautiful lingerie pieces. For many women, searching for the perfect lingerie set is effortless, but for some women, especially post-mastectomy, searching for pieces that are functional and fashionable can be discouraging.
We’re here to help. We’ve rounded up some of our fave lingerie brands that are post-mastectomy-friendly.
AnaOno is a “brand made for women with breast cancer, by women with breast cancer”. AnaOno offers up modern styles from pocketed bras, flat, bras for reconstruction and even mastectomy surgery must-haves. AnaOno’s bras have been featured in magazines such as Today, The Huffington Post, and People, garnering attention for their fit and function. AnaOno has also partnered with many breast cancer organizations.
Two words: matching sets. Need we say more? Amoena offers robust options for your bust. From lingerie to sports bras to swim, Amoena has it.

Mastectomy Lingerie and More
After her experience with breast cancer, Sue Teschke found it challenging to buy post-mastectomy bras for fun and not just necessity. Filling the gap, she saw in her mastectomy-friendly lingerie selections Sue opened Mastectomy Lingerie and More.

The lingerie can be purchased online or, you can check out the store’s atmosphere and personal touch in Hamilton, Ontario.
