Taboo Talking: #Nobraday & breast cancer
The 13th of October is the official no bra day. It's a day to raise awareness around breast cancer. Time to talk about this a bit more in our Taboo Talking stories.
Women that recovered from breast cancer are often depending on wearing a prothesis to hide the fact that they're missing one or two breasts. And in order to wear the prothesis, it's impossible to wear no bra. That's why #nobraday is introduced, in order to raise awareness.
How to check yours?
Checking your breasts can be crucial to detect breast cancer. You can check your breasts actually very simple. Here's how to identify unusual lumps and changes:
1. Pick the same time each month.⠀
2. Examine your breasts in front of the mirror⠀
3. Also, feel for unusual changes in the shower⠀
4. Repeat self exam lying down⠀
