Dressing With Breast Cancer: Flatter Your New Shape!

Catching the tail end of Breast Cancer Awareness month, Pink Slip Fashion wants to show women who have undergone a mastectomy how to dress their body’s post-surgery, returning feelings of confidence, femininity and sexiness with trend-forward styles.

Triumphing against unimaginable difficulties that come from fighting a life threatening illness can oftentimes extinguish self-esteem.  Coping with the fact that your body is irreplaceably different becomes a heartbreaking challenge and emotions become especially heightened after looking in the mirror.

As a person with relatives who have suffered from this distressing and time-consuming illness, I know it’s a trial for breast cancer combatants to find a sense of inner peace, sanctity and comfort.  With this post, I hope to bring some encouragement to these fighters’ indescribably different lives by providing a few styling tips to renew self-esteem and welcome back a restored sense of empowerment.

4 Irreversibly Cool Styles that Will Flatter Your New Shape:

1) Lacy Supportive Bra – Lace will complement your sweet and flirty side, helping you feel feminine.

2) Thick Strap Tank Tops – Thick straps will help camouflage your supportive bra while still giving you noteworthy looks. Try tanks with a subtle pattern, bow detail or metallic trim for even more style presence.

3) Tailored Jacket, Vest, or Cardigan – Every fashion maven needs this in her fall wardrobe. Styles with a belt or cinching will highlight the best of your curves, while showing off your thin waistline.

4) Patterns and Ombre Skirts or Dresses – To deflect away from your chest, try a print skirt or dress with patterned bottom. To play up the sophisticated ombre trend, choose designs with saturated hues closer to the hem.
