“A Body That I Refuse To Keep Hidden”: Lingerie Photos Showcase ‘Flat’ Pride http://www.lingerietalk.com/2015/02/27/lingerie-news/a-body-that-i-refuse-to-keep-hidden-lingerie-photos-showcase-flat-pride.html

Wry  isn’t it that the lgtb community is more accepting of a post mastectomy body than the hetro world. Women are beautiful no matter what had happened or what their bodies are like, beauty is an inside out thing. The outside means nothing if the inside is ugly.

Anyway, as a hetero normative, stereotypical white western nearly 50 year old. I live with a beautiful 36 year old woman (actually she denied to marry me) who has undergone a unilateral left side mastectomy. Can this beautiful woman find equally beautiful lingerie, NO she fucking well can’t. The lingerie industry isn’t interested, ‘keep out of the light love we don’t want your awkward body, confusing the blokes who shuffle over our advertising and of course its not cost effective because we don’t target you you don’t buy’
