Stella McCartney Designed the Most Beautiful Mastectomy Bra
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and while many brands are showing their support, Stella McCartney debuted one of the most beautiful tributes to date. The designer lost her own mother, Linda, to breast cancer in 1998 and now, she is utilising her talents to offer something special to other women fighting for their lives. "Cancer and mastectomy cannot destroy you, they cannot win," McCartney told Vogue. "We want to deliver on all fronts by providing technical support and comfort while women heal, without sacrificing on style, fashion, femininity, and fit."
The bra is named the Louise Listening Bra, after Linda's middle name. The design strays away from the more utilitarian designs typically available to women after a masectomy. While a frontal zip and wide underband offer support, the style remains feminine and soft with lace details. The bra is available now for presale (£115), and all proceeds go to the Hello Beautiful Foundation, which aims to remove negativity associated with breast cancer.
