Hi Y'all! My work is having a cocktail ball. Needless to say, after my surgery, my formal wear doesn't fit the same. So I made something new!

As a massage therapist, body acceptance is a bit thing we try to support. So what better way to reflect that than by baring my un-breast? If this goes over well - who knows? - I may start an independent line. :D
