Style Tips For Breast Cancer Warriors

Hey there warrior! We love you. And we want you to feel beautiful, too.

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I am dedicating this article to the ladies who’ve undergone or planning to undergo a mastectomy. It’s hard enough to feel like you’re regaining your sense of self after cancer, but when you have to deal with the physical changes that come with surgery and treatment, it’s even more difficult.

We want you to know that we might not understand how much it sucks, but we’re here—to help you feel as beautiful as ever in your own skin. 

Here are some tips for making the process more bearable and beautiful:

Don’t hide your scars! 

Scars are a badge of honor, and they show that you’ve survived something really difficult. They can be beautiful—the mark of a warrior—and they deserve to be celebrated rather than hidden.

Wear clothes that fit well and flatter your figure. 

If your chemo has caused weight gain or loss (or both), choose styles that fit well on your new body type. Don’t try to squeeze yourself into clothes that don’t fit; instead, find clothes that will make the most of what you have now. If you need help finding flattering options for different body types, consider reaching out to an expert stylist at your favorite boutique or department store!

Invest in some great undergarments. 

Bras can be very expensive, but they are worth it! Invest in several bras made from breathable materials like silk or lace—they’ll feel amazing on your skin and help keep you cool during those first few weeks when your body is still healing. Plus, they look great under any outfit!

Don’t forget about your accessories.

A statement necklace or earrings can totally change the way an outfit looks, so don’t let them fall by the wayside just because you’ve lost one of your boobies (or both!).

Don’t be afraid to ask for help. 

It’s okay to ask someone close to you to help with bra shopping or other tasks related to your new life as a breast cancer survivor. You might think that asking for help will make you look weak or incompetent, but the truth is that it takes all of us working together to make sure that our loved ones have what they need—and they’re happy in their own skin as well!

Embrace color.

Pink is your color. Wear it with pride! You’ll feel proud of yourself for surviving breast cancer, so why not wear something that makes you feel like a rock star? Pink is the official color of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so show off your survivor status with some pink accessories or clothing items. Wear your pink with pride!

Try physical therapy.

A good therapist will give you personalized exercises that will keep your body strong while helping it heal from the trauma of surgery.

Make sure you’re eating right.

Your body needs healthy energy so it can focus on healing itself, so make sure you’re getting enough protein and vitamins in your diet.

In the end, I’m just hoping that I’ve given you some confidence to wear the clothes you love, even if they’re “not your size.” Don’t let anyone else tell you differently. Be prepared for a life of style and elegance, regardless of whether you’re wearing a surgical bra or not!
