At Understatement, we celebrate all boobs and non-boobs in the same way that we represent all women. This October, we have reached out to our community for Breast Cancer Awareness month to help us highlight boobs in all their glorious differences.
Throughout this campaign we’ll donate 15% of our bralette sales to help fund ongoing research and education. Included in all orders you’ll also find a Boob Check instruction card explaining how to examine your breasts. With #MyBoobsMyStatement we want to celebrate and empower the uniqueness of your boobs, and what they mean to you - because Boobs are close to our hearts!
have you checked your boobs?
Stand in front of a mirror. Place your arms behind your neck and and observe the shape of your breasts. Do they have their usual shape & size? Look for changes in texture such as dimpling, puckering or indentations.
With your fingertips, gently yet firmly press down using small motions to examine both right and left breast in small circular pattern.
Check your nipples. Do they look the way they usually do. Also, check to see if your nipple doesn't turn inward. Squeeze your nipples to see if there is any discharge.
Lastly repeat the process while lying on your back. Also, feel your armpit, because breast tissue goes into that area.
