Goal: 65,000 Progress: 53,895
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 23, 2017 Wanda Barnhard I am sad to hear about this. I will NOT be buying another bra from them. I will also spread the word. If they were to put any time into this cause, they would benefit from it, unfortunately!

Jan 23, 2017 LInda Smith Are there no strong women at the helm of Victoria Secret who could speak to Les Wexner about this niche market. Do the right thing and support the thousands of women who need your products to help in their journey.
Jan 23, 2017 Lori Anderson REALLY? To complicated? Maybe another company would not find supporting women too much of a challenge. I for one will NEVER shop at Victoria Secrets again!

Jan 21, 2017 Tonya Pappa It is difficult enough for a woman to feel good about her appearance after the mastectomies and the hair loss without having to wear ugly bras. We should do anything we can to help these fighters to feel beautiful and sexy

Jan 21, 2017 (Name not displayed) I am a breast cancer survivor I can never get the right bra to fit, when you have breast cancer and have had a mastectomy this is a woman`s worse nightmare then trying to find a bra to fit another nightmare. Please consider to create bras again

Jan 21, 2017 (Name not displayed) I am in the healing process of bilateral mastectomy. Regular bras at VS just do not fit well. I am subject to sport bras that are just not as sexy or fitting as regular bras.

Jan 21, 2017 Diame Turrey I thought the whole object of your company was to make women look beautiful so they could feel beautiful about themselves. Well, do your job! Only include ALL women!
Jan 21, 2017 Carolyn Bowen Losing a woman's breast is quite traumatic for most ladies. Then to only be able to find very plain bras stinks! Something pretty that would fit properly would be comforting. Please reconsider your decision and help survivors feel somewhat normal 😊

Jan 19, 2017 Sandra Long I have been buying VS bras, panties, pajamas and gowns for MANY years. Please reconsider your stand on Survivor bras. I would really hate to think after going through 4 surgeries, chemo and hair loss that I will have to find another bra to wear!!!
