This is a sponsored post on behalf of Elemental about their thermal bras designed for breast cancer survivors and breast cancer previvors.
After having a lumpectomy or bilateral mastectomy finding a bra that fits right can be a challenge. Even after breast reconstruction, bra bands and cups do not fit or feel the same way as they would on someone without surgery. Then, there’s also the problem of cold implants, for those of us that have had reconstruction with breast implants.
After having my ovaries removed a few months ago, I now get cold more frequently than before. My hormones still haven’t adjusted to surgical menopause. But, then, I am also active and it is important to have undergarments that do not hold in the sweat, making me even colder.
Elemental Has Pretty, Comfortable Bras for Breast Cancer Survivors and Previvors
This is where Elemental comes to the rescue. They have created quality thermal bras that meet the needs of breast cancer survivors and breast cancer previvors. These bras are designed for women that have had surgery and need a warm, comfortable, beautiful bra.
Wireless, Pretty Bras After Breast Cancer
Having a beautiful bra is important as well after going through what many of these women have. I remember coming home with ugly bras from the hospital and thinking from now on, I’d have to choose between comfort and beauty.
Testing the Bras for Breast Cancer Survivors and Previvors
Since I’m a breast cancer survivor and have struggled to find a good bra after having a bilateral mastectomy, Elemental sent me two of their bras to try, the wide-band Jodie bra, and the narrow-band Gretchen bra. Finding my perfect bra size was easy with their instructions on how to measure bra size and the bra size chart.
The bras came in very nice boxes, carefully packaged, and with an included lingerie mesh wash bag. Both of the bras have a nice style that does not look like the hospital bras I have. I liked that both bras kept me warm, but have a wicking fabric to also keep my skin sweat free. These bras are soft, wire-free, and have adjustable straps. I like that they are good for everyday use, but also for nicer occasions as well.
I’ve been wearing both bras for about a week now and still happy with the way they look and feel. For me, the wide-band Jodie bra fits best. I didn’t know if I would like the extra coverage, but it really does reduce pressure at the under bust area. Also, we have been having usually cold weather in Austin this winter and this bra is keeping me warm without getting sweaty.
If you are a breast cancer survivor or have had a breast surgery that changed the shape of your breasts, then check out these thermal, comfortable and pretty bras from Elemental.
