We can't believe somebody didn't think of this sooner!
A woman named Allana Maiden, whose mother is a breast-cancer survivor, recently petitioned Victoria's Secret via Change.org, asking the lingerie giant to consider making mastectomy bras for breast-cancer survivors like her mother.
The petition states:
"So many of us have mothers, daughters, and friends who have faced breast cancer. These inspiring women who have had mastectomy surgery as part of their treatment deserve to feel beautiful, too. Victoria's Secret is known for helping women feel confident and comfortable. Please celebrate the strength and hope of the survivors in our lives with a 'Survivor' line of mastectomy bras."
What a brilliant idea!
And we really hope Victoria's Secret gets on board. They have the power to do something truly considerate for the thousands of breast cancer survivors out there, and it would be a shame if they passed on this opportunity.
BTW, you, too, can sign the petition and put pressure on the lingerie company to make a difference!
