I never thought it would happen to me. But in the summer of 2017, at the age of 42, I was devastated by the diagnosis of breast cancer. After spending a year in treatment, including a double mastectomy, hysterectomy, and radiation, I was so thankful to be healthy, and excited to finally be back to ME and the possibility of enjoying summer at the beach, with my family.
But after trying on so many ill-fitting bathing suits - many of which I couldn’t even clasp because of my post-surgery limited arm range of motion - I felt very frustrated with my now asymmetrical breasts. The impact that breast cancer had on my body was new to me and I saw no solution available on the market for my needs.
I thought my issue was unique to breast cancer survivors. But in fact, millions of women who have never endured health issues have uneven breasts. After doing research to discover how prevalent this issue is, it became clear to me that I needed to create a solution to help all women feel beautiful in a bathing suit- especially in a bathing suit.
SOLEIL ROSE is for the millions of women like you and me - who have either shared a similar experience after breast cancer treatment, other surgeries, or who have naturally asymmetrical breasts - and want to feel like our beautiful, feminine, sexy selves.
