Creating the BRCA Strong platform has lead to creating valuable, close connections for previvors and survivors. Just a few weeks ago I came across Amy Neighbors, the creator of Brick Betty, and right away we hit it off. Brick Betty creates athletic wear and post-surgical bras for women.
The bras in the Violet collection are tailored to meet the needs of women who have had the following: breast augmentation, breast lift, breast reduction, mastectomy, tummy tuck, and liposuction. They provide cutting edge style, design, support, and stability.
As with her fitness apparels, Amy knew post-surgical bras needed to be “a reflection of the wearer: hard-working, confident, passionate, and fearless.” The bras give women the confidence to know that they are beautiful and for them to embrace their femininity. At the same time, the bras needed to provide exceptional support.
Producing post-surgical bras is something close to Amy’s heart. Amy had members of her family diagnosed with breast cancer. Although she does not have a cancer gene mutation, she fully understands the struggle cancer begets.
Her knowledge and prior personal experiences with breast cancer created a strong connection between us as well. She values female empowerment, aiming to help women and achieve their goals without feeling burdened by surgery.
Two days after my initial conversation with Amy, I received a box of Revive post-surgical bras. The bras are beautifully made, extremely comfortable, soft, and most importantly fit my body and style.
The bra fits so well! It’s also a great everyday bra because of the incredible support it provides and the soft cups. The bra has an adjustable 3-hook back closure, a front zipper closure, zipper cover, G-hooks for a straight back or a cross back look, and adjustable straps.
All these features are vital in providing full coverage. The bra is made of their exclusive silky soft Belite fabric, which gives it a light compression. Also, the bra has sewn-in stabilizing cups to keep your breasts supported throughout the wear. The best part of the bra is that it is a lot nicer than the typical post-surgery bra.
I’m so excited to be working with Amy on future projects that will make a difference in the world of previvors and survivors to have comfortable and cute apparel. The Violet collection is terrific. We just need more women to see that they have this fantastic option that I know they’ll love!
