Lisa’s Journey

on April 19, 2022

 

Lisa from Ohio has struggled with body image and self-love for much of her life. She reached out to us to share her path and how Handful played a part in it. We were so inspired by her that we just had to share it with all of you. Here’s her journey to self-acceptance in her own words…

 I have struggled with embracing my natural shape from puberty until I was 41. I was so unhappy with my natural breasts that I got breast implants as soon as I could. Little did I know that those implants would have serious negative impact on my health.

I made the very tough decision to have my implants removed and accepted the possibility that I could have permanent disfigurement and adhesions. I prepared for the worst aesthetic result.  I was finally accepting my body.  After the trauma of an explant and muscle repair, I would be super lucky to fill out an A cup.  During this process of learning to accept whatever outcome I would end up with post-op, I started researching mastectomy prosthetics. 

I ran across the Handful website. I was so impressed with the focus on fitness; bras that flatter, not flatten. As a fitness athlete I live in my sports bras.  Handful brand provided a solution for my problem.

Your product is hands-down the most superior product for women that need lightweight structured padding. I ordered my first Handful bra pre-explant.  Once it arrived and I felt the actual pads, I had complete peace in my heart knowing whatever the outcome I had, be it adhesions or deformity, that it was a problem the Handful pads would discreetly resolve.

I am now nearly 2 years post-op. I am so petite; I don’t have a cup size. I have deformity. But I am secure and happy in my skin for the first time in my life!!  I proudly rock my Handful bras every single day! I wear them to the gym, office, beach, hiking…. literally everywhere. If I can’t wear a Handful bra, I simply use the Handful pads in whatever undergarment that I am wearing. I love that they are lightweight, dry quickly, and hold their shape after many, many washings, and many vacations packed in a suitcase.

To say I love your product is an understatement! Your bras and pads have given me the confidence to truly be me, embracing my natural shape.  I am tearing up as I say thank you for giving me confidence. I am just one woman with an opportunity to speak to you out of the thousands ++ you’ve helped!  I will continue to happily rock my Handful bras with confidence and encourage all women to love and embrace their bodies.
