Life after a mastectomy (partial or full) is met with a decent amount of challenges. Finding a comfortable and functional bra is now much easier with Elemental’s high-end, quality thermal bras. Read on to learn the benefits and how it works. And take one less worry off your list.

A mastectomy removes the breast tissue that carries blood flow, which also regulates body temperature). With or without reconstruction, this can result in a 30-degree temperature difference in the breast area which causes an uncomfortable coldness.
While this problem is bad enough, other long-term side effects can also create havoc. Younger women are often thrown into chemical menopause during chemo, resulting in hot flashes and extreme sweating. Balancing these temperature extremes is challenging and can affect the quality of life.
Let’s not forget about trying to find a bra that is comfortable to wear after surgery. For me, this was one of the lowest points during my breast cancer journey. I had a piece of my womanhood taken away from me, I was newly engaged, extremely self-conscious, and it was all but impossible to look beautiful and be sexy for my betrothed. Nothing fit right. I couldn’t find a bra that was comfortable. I was miserable.
One final issue is that many women who go through breast cancer are subsequently diagnosed with thyroid issues. I’m not sure why this correlation exists, but the parallels are too many to be coincidental. One thyroid-related side effect includes being cold all of the time.
THE STRUGGLE IS REAL. So, what’s a girl to do?
How the Elemental Bra Works
Elemental creates quality thermal bras designed with the needs of breast cancer survivors (and previvors) in mind. They pride themselves on their uniquely functional, innovative bras made to be warm, comfortable, and beautiful.
The Elemental Bra is designed to help solve all of these issues mentioned above and create a better experience for breast cancer survivors. The fabric is designed to help keep you warm by recycling your own body heat. In addition, the wicking fabric helps to keep your skin sweat-free. There are no wires or stays, the band is ultra soft, and the straps are adjustable including an x-cross back.
First of all, I was blown away at the beautiful packaging. It was like opening a present from an upscale store.
The Elemental Bra made me feel special and beautiful before I even tried on the bra.
I have to admit, I was intrigued at how a bra could keep me warm AND wick away sweat at the same time. Elemental delivered on their promise. It didn’t take long before I felt the comfortable heat gently warming my breast area. Yes, a bra can do that!
The material was able to wick away the sweat, and the fit was very comfortable. I tried both the regular fit and also crossed the back.
Since I work from home, I go bra-free in the house and only wear a bra when I’m out in public. Being wire-free is extremely important to me because I want to know I’m not restricting lymphatic flow.
I’m super excited to share the Elemental Bra with you. I know that being a breast cancer survivor has a fair share of struggles. Finding the perfect bra no longer has to be one of them.
