One thing I really wasn’t prepared for was the new me. With no evidence of disease in my body and reconstructed breasts I was ready to take on the world, until I got to the store. New bras size. New body. Everything that I’d known about who I was and what I could wear was different. It was emotional. Finding out what my new bra size was. Pulling something off the rack that suited my pre-cancer body, but not this one.
It can be confusing, overwhelming and even upsetting. That’s okay. Just know that. Take a deep breath. Bring a friend and go find the new you fashion.
