Forget pink everything--The Alloro Collection wants women to feel impossibly stylish, regardless of their experiences with cancer. According to their concept:
The Alloro Collection offers elegant clothes and accessories in rich colors and beautiful fabrics specifically designed for women who have experienced breast cancer. The designs address the changes in contour, comfort and appearance of a woman’s body — without sacrificing style.
What many people don't realize is that typical clothing does not provide the structure necessary to keep someone who has experienced breast cancer completely comfortable and mobile.
The Alloro collection emphasizes flowing fabrics like silk and cashmere that feel good against the skin and move with it. Sleeves never cut into the body and keep the arm and shoulder area free. Subtle elastic waists allow for maximum flexibility. And of course, purses are made of ultra-lightweight materials for those who have difficulty carrying heavier items.
All too often comfort is associated with frumpiness. During such a potentially difficult time in someone's life, feeling beautiful and stylish can have such an incredible impact, and that's something we often forget. Three cheers for Alloro for helping women feel like the bomb dot com!
