Goal: 65,000 Progress: 53,812
Sponsored by: The Breast Cancer Site

The trauma of battling breast cancer, undergoing a mastectomy, and using prosthetics is difficult for any woman. After the treatment is completed, many survivors, especially those who require prosthetic breasts, suffer from body image issues.

Inspired by her mother's story of survival against breast cancer and her struggle to find bras that fit, Allana Maiden decided to petition Victoria's Secret, asking them to consider making 'Survivor' bras.

Allana was recently told by Victoria's Secret that they felt that the creation, fitting, and sale of these bras would be too complicated. But Victoria's Secret engineers fashion multi-million-dollar bras for their runway shows, complete with lovely and improbable angel wings. Surely a fraction of that time and energy would be well-spent appealing to a new demographic of women who want to look and feel beautiful.

As the largest American retailer of lingerie, Victoria's Secret is in a unique position to make beautiful, well-fitting, and affordable post-mastectomy bras easily accessible to survivors of breast cancer.

Sign the petition asking Victoria's Secret to reconsider their decision not to create bras for breast cancer survivors.

Dear Victoria's Secret CEO Les Wexner,

I cannot begin to describe my disappointment when I discovered Victoria's Secret has decided not to create bras tailored to the needs of breast cancer survivors. I am appalled that you would claim that the issue of providing beautiful, well-fitting, and affordable post-mastectomy bras is too difficult a challenge for your company when you are able to engineer multi-million-dollar bras for your runway shows, complete with lovely and improbable angel wings.

Simply donating to fund cancer research is not enough. Women who have won the fight against cancer are left to grapple with their altered body image and struggle to find bras that are designed specifically to their needs.

As the largest American retailer of lingerie, Victoria's Secret is in a unique position to make bras easily accessible to the survivor community.

Do the right thing. Reconsider your decision not to produce a 'Survivor' line of bras.

Signed,

Jan 16, 2017 janis bush I was thinking of going bra shopping at Victoria's Secret as I do not know my size for starters after a double mastectomy and reconstruction. I will go elsewhere until you make this bra for all we have gone thru and suffered. JBB

Dec 15, 2016 T. Lenahan Why not, Victoria's Secret? Why not? In fact, you could run a campaign in which a % of bra sales goes to fund this endeavor (not that you need funding). NO EXCUSE!

Dec 14, 2016 Andrea Tate This is something that is very easily done, Victoria's Secret! My mother lost her battle over 20 years ago, but many more are going through the cancer battle today. If you provide a 'Survivor' line, maybe I'd be tempted to buy your products.

Dec 11, 2016 Vicki Johnasen All women are beautiful and deserve to feel that way especially after the trauma of breast cancer. Victoria's Secret needs to support ALL women not just the ones who still have their breasts.
