Is Victoria’s Secret developing a mastectomy bra line?
Company responds to requests for a special line.
After a petition on Change.org asking Victoria’s Secret to launch a line of mastectomy bras went viral, VS listened.
According to Fashionista.com, Allana Maiden wrote the petition after watching her mother struggle to find post-mastectomy bras. What she didn’t expect was such a large support system so quickly—within a month, close to 120,000 people signed her petition.

Victoria’s Secret and our parent company, Limited Brands, have been dedicated to helping eradicate this disease and have committed $10s of millions to cancer research. Ultimately, we are working towards celebrating the day when breast cancer is a thing of the past. In the meantime, we are listening and learning to understand if there are additional ways for our company to continue to extend its support.”
