Getting to Know Jessie

Every month, Lulalu showcases a different amazing woman whose story and commitment to living life fully despite all sorts of challenges fills us with inspiration.

We’re so excited to share a story of immense bravery and resilience from our next Lulalu Lady...Jessie!


"My name is Jessie Richard. In 2018 I was diagnosed with a 6cm tumour in my left breast that was growing into my chest wall. My Breast Cancer was stage 3 hormone-receptor-positive and required a full Mastectomy, 9 months chemotherapy and 30 rounds of radiation! 

If you want to, you can find a million reasons to hate life and be angry at the world, or, if you want, you can find a million reasons to love life and be happy! Seemed like a no brainer choice to me and I’m still here living every day to the fullest. 

Cancer may have taken my breasts and my sense of security in my life but it did not strip me of my confidence, self-esteem and self-worth. I stayed strong, I fought and I won! I can now see the beauty and strength in my scars. 

I have chosen to go without reconstruction and “live flat”. With this has come many challenges shopping, as women's clothing is made to “fit breasts”. I tried so many different styles of bras and padding and ultimately would always go back to a sports bra out of frustration. I came across your website and thought maybe the AAA’s could work in my situation. Once I received them I cried! I literally sat in front of the mirror and cried! Finally, a fit! A perfect bra for my petite boobless body! I will never wear anything else! They are in all honesty LIFE CHANGING for someone like me! I feel feminine, I feel sexy and I thank you from the bottom of my heart!
