Goal: 65,000 Progress: 53,990
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.

Feb 24, 2017 (Name not displayed) I don't buy your products because of your politics (exclusion of real plus sizes, survivors bras, etc). I'll continue to discourage everyone I know to shop elsewhere. Your actions do affect your bottom line. Produce Survivor Bras!

Feb 13, 2017 Jackie Hon The other surgery for lymph nodes caused pain when I try to wear bras with underside. That and my unusual size makes bra shopping very difficult. I stopped looking in Victoria's Secret a while ago because I never found my size!

Feb 13, 2017 (Name not displayed) This is terrible on Victoria Secrets part. They better rethink this issue. I am a customer of theirs and I will need to discontinue shopping there unroll they reconsider their decision. So glad you posted this information

Feb 11, 2017 Amy Smith I currently have breast cancer and am having a hard time finding a bra that is comfortable for my needs. I would prefer wireless with a little padding as I won't be having reconstructive surgery for several months
Feb 11, 2017 Sue Lessard Are you surprised by VS, this company still objectifies women with their annual VS runway shows. The models they hire look anorexic and slutty!!
Feb 11, 2017 (Name not displayed) Bras are hard to obtain in our area for breast cancer survivors. It would be nice to have bras available like everyone else.
Feb 11, 2017 (Name not displayed) Please reconsider. This is too important and I'm sure some of those models wearing the wings will readily agree.
Feb 11, 2017 (Name not displayed) I was diagnosed with breast cancer & had bilateral mastectomy july 28,2000. Ugly sport bras were my only option which made me feel more awful about myself. Please offer us ladies this pretty option-regular brad still do not fit me right-always LOVED VS!
Feb 11, 2017 Maureen LaPerriere Compassion is ALWAYS in fashion! Why is VS distancing itself from the average woman? We come in all shapes and sizes, and that includes our breasts...or not.
Feb 11, 2017 jasmine vaught With all your money and so called attention to women I don't believe you cannot do this. Be truthful and say you are NOT interested in women unless they are perfect. BS
Feb 11, 2017 Linda Anstice I had breast cancer, it is hard to look at, harder still to find bras that fit, you are on display, they hurry you through, often doesn't fit right. A piece of your womanhood disappears, then we get to see all these commercials of beautiful women!
Feb 11, 2017 (Name not displayed) Both my Mother & aunt are breast cancer survivors & I am sure they would appreciate it if Victoria Secret reconsidered this decision not to make Survivor Bras.
