Post Mastectomy Fashion

Ann Jacqueline Design

— March 11, 2008 — Unique
Breast cancer survivors often struggle with feeling beautiful while staying comfortable after a mastectomy, but Anja Mullins, a survivor herself, has set out to change that with Ann Jacqueline Design, a line of flattering post mastectomy fashion.

The apparel is meant to make women feel attractive and comfortable as finding clothing after the surgery can be quite a struggle. Prosthesis can be bulky and heavy as well as awkward when they shift around inside a bra.

"Any woman who has had a mastectomy soon realizes that all sense of fashionable comfort is gone forever," she says. "Either you're wearing 'the prosthesis' and are physically uncomfortable or you're not wearing ;the prosthesis' and are uncomfortable with your appearance."

Mullins created a one-piece garment that entirely eliminates the need to wear a prosthesis and has designed an accompanying fashion line for both those who have undergone single and double mastectomies.

"Women may now choose to wear a lightweight, pull-over, one piece prosthesis free, fashionable garment that can be worn in any social setting," she explains.

The line includes camisoles, lace top, T-shirts, tank tops, sleepwear, swimwear as well as accessories like watches and scarves.
Trend Themes
1. Post-mastectomy Fashion - Designing special clothing and accessories to help breast cancer survivors feel fashionable and comfortable after undergoing a mastectomy.
2. Prosthesis-free Clothing - Creating a line of fashion focused on one-piece, prosthesis-free clothing for women who have undergone single or double mastectomies.
3. Comfortable Sleepwear and Swimwear - Designing comfortable sleepwear and swimwear for breast cancer survivors to help them feel fashionable and at ease after their mastectomies.
Industry Implications
1. Fashion Industry - The fashion industry can create a new niche in designing fashionable clothing and accessories that provide comfort to those who have undergone a mastectomy.
2. Healthcare Industry - The healthcare industry can develop innovative solutions and technologies to help breast cancer survivors feel comfortable and beautiful after their mastectomies.
3. E-commerce Industry - The e-commerce industry can connect breast cancer survivors with specialized fashion retailers who cater to their post-mastectomy clothing needs.
