As many of you may well know, October is an important month for women everywhere. With 1 in 8 women diagnosed with Breast Cancer and as one of the most common cancers, we all know someone who has been effected by the disease. With an emphasis on a healthy lifestyle pre and post treatment which can include many things some of which can include yoga and Pilates, we have partnered up with Sam from SamSpaces to bring you our guide to the best yoga tops to wear post Mastectomy or Corrective Surgery.
Made from the softest bamboo fabric, our Balance Bra Top offers a gentle support which is perfect post reconstruction. It also features removable foam pads which can be great for shape enhancement especially if someone has had a mastectomy and no reconstruction or has had surgery and is conscious of shape.
As it has to go over the head, we recommend it for a little later in the recovery process when there is free movement.
Our Divine Cami features a supportive shelf bra and gentle under bust shaping for a supportive, elegant and flattering fit. Made from our signature blend of organic cotton and bamboo it’s suitable for the most delicate skin.
Our Go To Vest is a great everyday piece. With a higher neck and supportive binding at the neck and the arm, it’s great for those who are conscious about covering scars. Made from lightweight bamboo and in a longer length style, it provides good coverage of the hips and the tummy which are often also effected by surgery.
Our draped bamboo Open Back Tee features a fashionable cut out back detail and it can be easily worn over a support bra or vest. It’s long sleeves are great for those who are scar conscious or are suffering with swollen arms. It also sits comfortably on the hips and stays in place.
We would love to hear your thoughts and your experiences with wearing our clothes so please do leave us a comment in the box below.
