Allan Maiden, the 28-year-old daughter of a breast cancer survivor, had hoped to change that and gathered 120,000 signatures last January asking that Victoria’s Secret start offering a “Survivor” line of mastectomy bras.

“Through our research, we have learned that fitting and selling mastectomy bras ... a way that is beneficial to women is complicated and truly a science,” reads a statement released Monday by a Victoria’s Secret spokesperson.
“As a result, we believe that the best way for us to make an impact for our customers is to continue funding cancer research.” Maiden, who created the petition as a way to honor and support her mother, a 21-year breast cancer survivor, says she’s a “bit disappointed” at the decision but appreciates the fact that the lingerie maker took the petition seriously.
