While lingerie might be a little too personal to put on your Christmas list, it’s something you should treat yourself to this holiday season!
Whether or not you opt for reconstruction post-mastectomy, we leave that operating room having lost some of ourselves. It can be tempting to swear off pretty undergarments, but I firmly believe that breast cancer shouldn’t be the end of us feeling beautiful and empowered as women.
That’s why I fell in love with Ana Ono lingerie. It’s designed for women with breast cancer BY women with breast cancer — women who understand our bodies and the battles we’ve fought (and are fighting).
Their bras and undergarments are created to fit every post-mastectomy body type: reconstructed or not, unilateral or prostheses. Best of all, they combine comfort with beauty. These are post-mastectomy bras you will feel sexy in!
To get started, take their Fit Guide Quiz here. Then, check out some of my favorite picks below.
Best Sexy Wirefree Pocketed Post-Mastectomy Bra
There’s something about lace that takes a bra from basic to sultry, and you can get the Gloria post-mastectomy bra in black, ivory or champagne-colored lace. Add inserts if you want to, or just enjoy the soft spandex lace as-is (no itching, I promise!) without painful wires.
Best Triangle Cup Post-Mastectomy Bra
Another awesome pocketed option, the Jess bra features a sexy geometric lace pattern (ivory or black) and has adjustable straps that you can configure as a cross-back. With no wires and fully-lined soft cups, you can’t go wrong.
Best Full Coverage Post-Mastectomy Bra
You can be both sexy AND covered, and if you prefer something a little “more,” the Monica is a perfect choice. It features a wide-back band, adjustable straps that you can criss-cross, and pockets for inserts (but it’ll lay flat with nothing inside as well). It’s one of Ana Ono’s most popular bras!
Best Post-Mastectomy T-Shirt Bra
Comfort is king, and who doesn’t love a t-shirt? But when you’re wearing one you probably don’t want all the lines of your bra popping out. The Kiku t-shirt bra is a smooth choice to hide under any shirt that looks just as good with your shirt off! It comes in grey/black or ivory.
Best Pocketed Plunge Post-Mastectomy Bra
You know when you see a bra and it LOOKS comfortable? That’s the Molly bra from Ana Ono. The deep plunge gives it a sexy feel, and the tiny satin bow is just enough detail to make it pretty, but the fabric couldn’t be softer to touch. Slip in inserts or wear it without.
Best Post-Mastectomy One-piece Swimsuit
After a mastectomy, finding swimwear that you feel confident in is a struggle. Ana Ono’s Cortez Keyhole Pocketed Swimsuit features UPF 50 fabric, pockets for inserts, and a sultry silhouette that’s 100 percent beach-worthy.
Best Post-Mastectomy Bikini Top
Who says you can’t wear a bikini post-mastectomy? Ana Ono makes it possible with this beautiful Cassis Wrap Swim Top. It looks great with or without inserts, and the fun two-tone will stand out at the pool.
Best Post-Mastectomy Robe
Whether you’re looking for something empowering to wear in the hospital, or want something beautiful and comfortable for your life during and after recovery, the Miena Robe is an obvious choice. It’s lightweight, super soft, and comes in either black or clay (grey).
Best Post-Mastectomy Wirefree Camisole
Lounging at home? Wanting to feel sexy? Need an extra layer under a top? This wrap front wirefree cami will work. Get a beautiful v-neck with a sexy lace back panel that comes in either ivory or black. This is a piece you’ll wear again and again.
