YOURS (UK) - - Feel Good -

Breast cancer doesn’t have to mean splash­ing out on a whole new wardrobe and that’s prob­a­bly the last thing you feel like do­ing. Raid your wardrobe for comfy looser-fit tops and dresses. Straight after surgery you may find but­ton-up shirts and blouses are eas­ier to put on and take off and a looser fit will help hide any post-surgery drains. As you be­come more mo­bile, round neck­lines, ruf­fles or wrap neck­lines are all great for hid­ing un­even­ness and scar­ring. “Re­mem­ber, it’s un­likely any­one will ever no­tice you’ve had surgery un­less you tell them,” says Melissa. “Com­fort is key, so if you’re feel­ing self-con­scious, a higher neck­line will give more cov­er­age. Pat­terned and bright cloth­ing or ac­ces­sories are also a great way to dis­tract the eye, so bold state­ment neck­laces and pretty scarves are ideal.”
