group has been created to support people who for various reasons are
considering or have chosen to stay flat after breast cancer surgery (i.e.
single or double mastectomy). There may also be people who have not had a choice
due to potential barriers. There are
different challenges and questions faced by people who are considering wearing
a breast form or prosthesis (inside the bra or attached to the body to wear
under clothing) or ‘Going flat’ (not wearing a breast form).
We welcome you
to this safe place to connect with other people, ask questions, share your
experience and support others who are going through a similar journey.
