Flat Friends’ Flatter Fashion Blog – Autumn 2017 1


Here is our fourth blog! Here you will find seasonal tips and advice from some of the 725+ members of the Flat Friends UK closed Facebook group, and if you have seen any of our previous blogs you will know how inspirational Flat Friends are! Every woman you see here has had a single or double mastectomy without reconstruction. 
And they don’t come much more inspirational than Kim! “Since being diagnosed with lymphedema I now have to find clothes that suit a flat chest and now have to fit my big fat arm!  I had only just got a load of new clothes but everything with long arms now don’t fit. So I went shopping the other day and this was one of my finds…..I love it! Such a fab colour and has a built in necklace.”

Someone else who is adjusting to a new body shape is Amanda, “My first flat weekend and I’ve bought a new dress from Tesco. A style I never would have worn when I had boobs but I love it now I don’t need a bra”.

And here is Rebecca – seven weeks post single mastectomy – looking amazing in a wrapover-front top which sits really nicely, flattering both sides of Rebecca’s new chest. Jersey is a fantastic fabric as it drapes well and creates gentle pleats and gathers. 

Sally-Anne always looks effortlessly cool, and I love this sleek geometric dress as it shows off a flat chest beautifully.

Jenefer spotted these tops in Tesco. A great range of styles including pintucks and lace to add detail across the chest…

Bold patterns to draw the eye around the body, and contrasting breast pockets to create the illusion of depth…

And swing styles. The red top below uses a split top layer to add movement and the flute sleeves add width across the chest. The purple top has a pleated neckline, a-line cut, and wide sleeves to add movement and volume. Great finds!

As the weather turns cooler, it’s time to think about heading abroad for some summer sun. Kim is wearing a really stylish swimsuit she bought from Avon a while ago. Kim says, “It covers my scars perfectly and you wouldn’t know I was flat as there is slight padding in the cups. It cost about £20 and can be worn 8 ways!”

And here is Angie in her bikinis, which are all from Boohoo. Slightly moulded cups, fringing, and ruffles all work perfectly on single-flat and double-flat chests.

    Just was sent your site. Been through my first second summer after mastectomy last July. Love my knitted knocker when I need it but prefer loose fitting clothes when hanging around. Sports bras are great too. Love your blogs.
