Diamond Medical Supply brings a bra boutique to the mall Health

Patients after mastectomy had the opportunity to take home free bras on Thursday when Diamond Medical Supply hosted Unique Bra Boutique in Indiana Mall.

The pop-up-shop-style event showcased unused mastectomy clothing from leading brands. Buyers had the opportunity to view both bras and breast prostheses, as well as meet with certified masters of mastectomy. Participants also received treats, prizes and mini-manicures from university stylists.

This is the second time Diamond is hosting an event. The first Unique Bra Boutique was held in March 2018 after Diamond Medical Supply staff recognized the opportunity to donate surplus clothing to patients for mastectomy in a warm and friendly atmosphere.

“Breast removal is one traumatic event in addition to several others,” said Janet Adams, a certified mastectomy fitter with Diamond. “Breast prosthetics and mastectomy bras help women feel themselves again. Unique Bra Boutique is special because it’s a fun, stress-free event where you can get advice and take home free clothes with no questions asked ”.

More than 50 bras and prostheses were presented at this year’s boutique.

“We really enjoy this chance to reach out to the community and inform them about Diamond’s mastectomy services,” Adams said. “A lot of people in the area don’t know we’re doing this.”

The third Unique Bra Boutique is tentatively scheduled for 2020.
