In honour of the fact that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I thought this would be the perfect time to start introducing lingerie reviews onto this blog whilst also promoting breast cancer awareness. This is something that is particularly close to my heart as both my mum and grandmother have had breast cancer, not to mention numerous friends and colleagues.
If you want to know how you can support this great cause then no doubt there will be a Macmillan coffee morning somewhere near you. Alternatively, you can support @coppafeelpeople, a non-profit organization that exists to ensure breast cancers are diagnosed early and correctly. You can also follow the #grablifebytheboobs hashtag on Instagram.
Please, please ladies, make sure you are checking your boobs regularly. If you’re not sure how to do so, then your GP will certainly show you, mine did when I asked. If you notice a sudden unusual change in size or shape then do visit your GP. It’s the norm to have different sized boobs, so it’s only if you notice a sudden change.
If you’re checking your boobs regularly then you’ll come to know how they should look and feel and therefore notice any differences. You should be checking as far up as your armpits and your nipples (which was news to me). Catching it early is the best way to improve survival chances to if you do nothing else today, make sure you’re checking your boobs.
As for my lingerie reviews, these will start arriving by the weekend, so do look out for those.
