We recently noticed a social media trend where women wear their ‘catch of the day’ like a bra. For better of worse, these are some eye-catching pics. Being that we’re women over 40 and we like to fish, we thought we could parlay this into something positive: promoting awareness about the importance of mammograms.
The American Cancer Society recommends that women obtain their first baseline mammogram at the age of 40. After that, a yearly mammogram is recommended. It’s nothing to be afraid of or embarrassed about so by all means don’t put it off. We’re not going to lie, it isn’t the most comfortable of procedures, but it’s over before you know it, and very effective in the early detection of breast cancer. So celebrate your ta-ta’s by keeping them healthy! Post your favorite “fish bra” pic on our Facebook page to promote awareness! It’s the ak chic thing to do 🙂
