“Monokini 2.0 is a social art project that re-examines popular culture’s narrow view of a woman’s ideal appearance” via beautiful photographs of gorgeous, brave breast cancer survivors modelling swimsuits tailored to their post-mastectomy bodies.
A B.C. woman has launched a petition to make the disclosure of breast density mandatory after she was diagnosed with stage three 3 cancer. Elizabeth Astbury, 46, says she began getting regular mammograms in 2010.
This rule applies to breast forms as well. An external breast prosthesis or silicone breast form should fit as close to the chest wall as possible, allowing a properly fitted bra to hug the silicone breast form and keep it securely in place. This is not possible with a heavy breast form or an ill fitting bra / mastectomy bra.
