Victoria’s Secret bras…they’ll push & pull and lift boobs in ways that guys have complained for years are misleading!
Well, now it seems that Victoria’s Secret wont be supporting the boobs that need the most support – those that have undergone mastectomy. In January, Allana Maiden started a petition on Change.org asking Victoria’s Secret to make a mastectomy bra for cancer survivors. Allana’s mother – a breast cancer survivor for over 2 decades – has to drive almost a half an hour away just to get a specialty made bra. Miss Maiden thought that breast cancer survivors – young and old – should have easier access to beautiful and great fitting bras. VS was practically handed a PR wet dream, unfortunately they’ve stated they will not be making mastectomy bras anytime soon.

Don’t give em too much hell though, at least they tried! As noted in a change.org public statement from VS

Through our research, we have learned that fitting and selling mastectomy bras in the right way…a way that is beneficial to women is complicated and truly a science. As a result, we believe that the best way for us to make an impact for our customers is to continue funding cancer research.
