With October being Breast Cancer Awareness month, I think its as good a time as any to start being aware of your breasts! Hands up if you actually check them regularly? I try in the shower to see if they feel different, but to be honest I am pretty clueless as to what I should be doing. So I am so pleased this review opportunity helped me become familiar with the work of CoppaFeel! Courtesy of them I now have some idea of the things I should be looking out for:
Changes in skin texture e.g. puckering/dimpling
Lumps and thickening
Nipple inversion and changes in direction
Swelling in the armpit or around the collar bone
Constant pain in your breast or armpit
Change in size and shape
A rash or crusting of the nipple and surrounding area
I was offered a shocking Pink Sports Bra from Panache, I would have loved to have reviewed myself but lacking a heaving bosom, had to offer it over to a grateful friend. She was so pleased when she set eyes on it, as it looks a great item, very well made and given her new very active fitness regime something perfect to stop any injuries from bouncing boobs! With 83% less bounce, your boobs stay where they should be whilst you prance around like a woman possessed to the workout music. She must be very active as she arrives at school collection time resembling a bright beetroot, bless her!
If pink is not for you, then they have a range of great colours. But each are so very stylish! Even if you do not do sports, bet you would be tempted just to wear one to swan around the house? My friend says it is very comfortable, helped no end by wide padded straps and breathable outer fabric.
Available to buy from Very for £35.
I think its great Panache are helping support Breast Cancer Awareness and donating 10% of profits from this lovely bra to CoppaFeel! It does make buying this bra even more special, you’re really helping make a difference. I am all for any support for such important charities. CoppaFeel! are busy working hard making sure ladies know how to check their boobs, meaning they would get treatment quicker if anything is amiss. Founded by Kristin Hallenga in October 2009, she has worked tirelessly to educate people.
It is so important to know your boobs well and recognise the signs and symptoms of breast cancer! Love your boobs, if you notice any changes see a doctor.
