It is no secret that I wear many hats and have had more jobs than I can count over the years, but one of the most memorable jobs I’ve had was becoming a bra analyst at Victoria’s Secret during college. I worked my way up from a simple seasonal greeter to an all powerful bra analyst. Wielding trusty measuring tape, I measured women and helped them find a bra that actually fit. Most women I measured had no idea what their actual bra size was. Bra sizing can be difficult for most women, but it gets even trickier after a mastectomy.
In conversations with my survivor friends, bra type and bra fit becomes a substantial issue for them post reconstructive surgery. I stumbled across this blog today, Bra tips post surgery, and it gives some great advice about bra fitting during treatment/post-surgery.
And if you are wondering what to do with your bras that you can no longer wear – we’ll take them! The Boob Ride is proud to use your bras to decorate our rest stops and party venue on the ride. Big or small, we’ll take them all!
