As you surely know, my mom is a breast cancer survivor and the whole reason why I started my career in the wellness space to help other women to improve their health and prevent chronic illnesses like cancer.
After she won her battle with cancer, she went through a mastectomy and later on reconstruction. Like many other women in her situation, she has struggled for a long time with an uncomfortable cold feeling in her chest and with finding adequate bras that didn’t have a wire, and still, could hold her boobies in the right place!
I’ve been super vocal about this topic, and a champion not only of initiatives to support survivors but also of brands that TRULY care and want to make the life of our queens an easier one. That’s why I am so happy to have partnered with Elemental Thermal Bras, to gift my mom with one of their bras made specifically for survivors.
I know that many of you, my beautiful survivors, might have encountered this same issue. After mastectomies and reconstructions, finding the right bra is HARD. The need for warmth after mastectomies is something that only those who go through it will fully understand.
Luckily, Elemental Thermal Bras understands too. Yay!
They asked real women what they needed from a bra during and after their journey with breast cancer. The responses were concise: thermal bra cups for warmth, unique cups to fit your shape, absolutely no wires (one of my mom’s MUST-HAVES!), wicking layer for a sweat-free experience, extra band clasps for more flexibility, soft fabrics for all-day comfort, and do it your way with our “any-way,” easily-adjustable, no-slip shoulder straps.
The Bra I Chose For My Mom
I gave my mom the Gretchen Bra. This model has a traditional band style and all the high-end features a survivor would be looking for in warmth after breast cancer, mastectomy, and reconstructive surgery.
Straps can be adjusted to be straight over your shoulders or crisscrossed at the back depending on how you’d want to wear the bra. The traditional band of the Gretchen Bra has four sets of hooks and eyes for maximum adjustability of the band circumference.
The bra is moisture-wicking to keep you dry and warm. Every bra comes with a protective laundry bag as well. She’s loving it so far, and I’m so freaking HAPPY FOR HER!!!
Something that I loved about partnering with Elemental Thermal Bras, is that every purchase makes a difference!
Your purchase will help a woman who is still in the midst of her battle with cancer to stay warm. For every bra sold, they will donate one extremely soft, warm fleece blanket to a woman who is in chemotherapy.
Love, love, love!
