Brilliantly Warm, the app-controlled warming wearable for women who have had breast implant reconstruction after mastectomy is now available for pre-order. The device is made up of a warming pad that gets placed directly against the skin between the breast mound and undergarment.
Brilliantly founder & CEO Kristen Carbone started the company in 2017 trying to solve a problem for herself. Her mother Lisa had died from metastatic breast cancer at age 49, and after years of expensive and emotionally taxing screenings, finding a lump, and learning more about my potential hereditary risks, she had a preventative mastectomy and reconstruction in 2013. “In the years following, I faced a profound shift in my identity and connection with my body. One of the things that really bothered me was feeling constantly cold. Turned out, I wasn’t the only one dealing with this discomfort—a relatively common result of implant reconstruction. After countless failed attempts to jerry-rig a quick fix, I set my mind on designing a sustainable solution to help women like myself feel physically better”, she explains.
Brilliantly Warm sells for $180 and is currently available for pre-order via the company’s online shop.
