“It’s not selfish to love yourself, take care of yourself, and make happiness a priority. It’s necessary.” ~ Mandy Hale

You deserve to feel your best. That’s why it’s time to stop putting your pain and discomfort on the back burner.

In other words – live your best summer COMFORTABLY!
Hello, long summer days and cool summer nights. Oh, and freedom from monthly breast pain! The Violet daily pill helps to alleviate monthly breast pain due to Fibrocystic breast condition – that nasty cycle of breast tenderness, aches, swelling, heaviness, and, for many, acute pain caused by high levels of estrogen and prolactin. This discomfort may interfere significantly with intimacy, clothing selection, exercise, and even routine social activities, making your summer fun not so fun. Violet is your daily vitamin for breast pain and when taken regularly has been shown to reduce breast pain within 30-60 days. Visit our website for details – violetdaily.com.

One of the best feelings of the day…the moment your bra comes off. Hands up if you agree with us. 🙌
It’s helpful to know a little about your breasts and what they’re made of so you can understand the role your bra plays. “Breasts are composed of glandular tissue and fat. The breast gland itself is supported by Cooper’s ligaments—an internal matrix of connective tissue,” explains Alexis Parcells, MD, a board-certified plastic surgeon at Parcells Plastic Surgery in Shrewsbury, New Jersey. Their shape and the way your breasts sit depend on their unique ratio of glandular tissue and fat. It also will influence whether or not you are comfortable going braless!
The decision of going braless is a personal AND aesthetic one. You don’t have to worry that you’re hurting your breasts or increasing your risk for certain diseases. Clinical Professor of Surgery at UCLA and a founder of the US National Breast Cancer Coalition, Susan M. Love, MD, MBA explains that there is no medical reason to wear a bra. “Except for the women who find bras especially comfortable or uncomfortable, the decision to wear or not wear one is purely aesthetic—or emotional,” she writes in her book, Dr. Susan Love’s Breast Book. “If you don’t enjoy it, and job or social pressures don’t force you into it, don’t bother.”
For some people, practical or medical reasons make bras necessary. For others, it’s emotion driving that need. Whatever is behind your choice, if you do want to wear a bra, make sure it’s the right one for you. And that means getting fitted properly for your body size.
Ditching your bra for a while can give you some back pain and postural issues if your chest is on the heavier side. That said, Lucky Sekhon, MD, an OB/GYN and REI in New York City, says that there are a number of benefits that can be realized by women with breasts of any size. “Women with larger breasts may initially feel more uncomfortable than those with smaller breasts as their muscles may initially be weak and not feel strong enough to provide adequate support,” she says. “Over time, though, their bodies will adjust and naturally start to support the breast tissue appropriately, without the aid of a bra.”
Putting on a swimsuit for the first time this summer isn’t easy, to say the least! Most of us are not ready to jump into a bikini and hit the pool. If you have had breast treatment or reconstructive surgery, finding a bra is hard, finding a bathing suit is 10 times harder!
When it comes to shopping for that “perfect” swimsuit, it can seem like a daunting challenge for any age. So first, you’ll want to think about your swimsuit requirements. While you want something flattering, stylish, and comfortable, you also want one to make you feel your best. That most of the time comes down to fit, and not all suits are made the same. Go for quality of materials and colors that boost your hair and skin. Look for options that are sporty, fun, and made for your body type. Because we all deserve to have our fun in the sun and to feel confident doing it!
Dehydration is another issue many have in the summer. Not just because it’s hot and you’re sweating, but it could also be due to medical procedures you have had, or side effects you are having from recent medical issues. Being thirsty is serious! So, if you are going to spend more time in the sun, you must drink water and stay hydrated. There is a plethora of products out there from Gatorade to Topo Chico sparkling mineral water, whatever your choice or preference is, carry it around with you and stay hydrated!
Fun fact: It can take just 15 minutes for the sun to harm your skin, even though it can take up to 12 hours for a sunburn to appear.
No matter who you are, you should use a sunscreen with a high SPF rating to protect your skin from the sun and reduce your risk of skin cancer and premature aging. But for those who’ve been treated for cancer, wearing sunscreen with a high SPF rating is especially important, as some treatments can increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun.
A high SPF number in your daily facial moisturizer is important for regular sun protection and for preventing wrinkles, and using a daily body lotion with a high SPF number is a great idea for extra protection. A high SPF number in your sunscreen for a day at the beach is non-negotiable.
Studies show that products with an SPF of 30 are best, and that higher SPFs don’t work any better. Make sure you’re applying enough sunscreen for it to be effective. People often apply only half of the recommended amount, which gives you only half of the product’s SPF protection. For example, if you apply only half as much SPF 30 sunscreen as you should, you’ll only get the protection of an SPF 15. And don’t forget your lips — there are many lip balms with high SPF ratings.
Taking breaks can improve both your productivity and creativity. In fact, not taking them can make you less productive. So since we are talking about living your best summer, that means finding ways to reduce your stress and anxiety that most all of us suffer from. Such stress inducing routines, involving all work and no play, can also have serious implications on your breast health as it increases stress, fatigue and depression.
Break out of your daily routine this summer, take a breather and replenish your mental, physical and spiritual resources.
Getting outside your routine can definitely help you live your best Summer and will go a long way in helping you relax and reduce stress and anxiety. Therefore, do something new, mix up your routine, reshuffle your priorities and take out time to focus on yourself for your own mental and physical benefits.
In talking about all of this, our desire is that your summer will be filled with joyful days that are not only fun and stress-free, but also free from breast-pain. Violet exists to support women in all our endeavors and lifestyle choices. We are intensely passionate about our mission; healthy breasts for all women, for life. That means we want you to be free from breast pain so that you can move confidently and pain-free into your life every day ALL SUMMER LONG!
