With the recent news of my beautiful mum Dianne being diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer, our world was sent into a tail spin of panic, grief, coping and of course a huge learning curve! She is a third of the way down the path of a 24 week treatment cycle. We’ve had some good and bad news, and are taking each day as it comes.
There is alot of information out there to help women in this situation, but I was curious what help there was for women my size, size 20.
Lisa, owner & operator of Lisa’s Lacies agrees and has just opened a new service specialising in mastectomy services for women size 8-28+.
Plus-size lingerie can be just as sexy as the regular variety, and Lisa’s Lacies has proven this time and time again over the past 19 years as a market leader of larger cup bra fittings providing gorgeous lingerie for women size 8-28+.
But imagine if you were one of the eight Australian women who will hear your doctor say those terrifying words – “You have breast cancer”. The process of diagnosis to treatment is incredibly difficult, however the emotions associated with learning to feel feminine after a mastectomy or lumpectomy is incredibly challenging.
Utilising her extensive expertise in fitting a curvy figure, Lisa has developed a custom made service specialising in custom prosthetic breast forms and specialist bra fittings for women size 8-28+ offering an extra level of understanding to breast cancer survivors. Lisa sourced two high quality prosthetic brands, Amoena and TruLife to meet the needs of her customers and their varying body shapes. Her team has dedicated Breast Care Consultants trained to marry the breast forms with a beautiful selection of the extensive range of over 174 options of bras to meet the needs of every figure size 8-28+ .
“It’s important to note that the brands I’ve chosen offer a wide range of breast forms and partial shapers that will meet the needs of any woman who has had breast surgery according to her body shape. I recognise that a woman’s body image and self-esteem is paramount at all times, and most especially at a time such as this”, Lisa says “From recovery care to everyday to fashion bras, we can help”.
The process is simple, ring and ask for the Breast Care Consultant on (03) 9782-5955 to book your appointment at the store in Seaford, Victoria. At the appointment the patient receives expert fitting advice in a beautiful custom built room providing a comfortable, nurturing and supportive environment. The consultant will explain and demonstrate the huge range of breast forms and bras available and the patient is fitted in complete privacy. The appointment takes approximately 1 hour.
One of Lisa’s Lacies Breast Care Consultants is a cancer survivor herself and understands first hand the sensitive care required.
This service is one of a kind in Australia offering expert fitting for all women, but specialising in plus-size, giving this service that extra level of understanding the patient is seeking. This expert service is available now. Please pass on this information to anyone who it could benefit and tell Lisa I sent you.
Love your shape!
