what to wear: flat fashion

By far, the question we get asked the most about is...

How do I dress after having a flat closure?
(and if you've had a unilateral flat closure dressing yourself may seem even more daunting!)

We can assure you, though, it's a matter of loving yourself first. Then, knowing what works for your body type and what to look for.


Flat Closure is a Valid, Beautiful & Healthy
Reconstructive Option

One resource that continues to be vital for patients going flat and their medical team, are real life photos of aesthetic flat closure


When each of our board members went searching for photos of patients who had gone flat,  what we found were operating room photos of mastectomy incisions, or photos of women modeling breast prosthesis. 

But we wondered...

  • What does going flat (NOW known as aesthetic flat closure) look like under clothes?

  • If I "go flat" - what will my quality of life be like after?

  • When the flat closure is healed, what will the scar look like?

  • How do I dress myself after having a flat closure?

  • Will I retain any sensation in my chest if I go flat?

  • What does recovery look like?

So, we made it part of Flat Closure NOW's mission to create our own going flat photos to present to the world, along with lifting the advocacy work of beautiful humans in the flat communities by featuring their stunning images and stories. 

... Pictures & valuable information that was 
so needed when we were making decisions about our own mastectomies, but we are proud to present to you NOW.
