Since the October 30, 2014 product launch, breast cancer survivors are testing the bra and here’s what they have to say. . . 

PATIENT & BOUTIQUE BUSINESS OWNER TESTIMONIALS:

Survivor:

"It is the best choice especially if I am going out anywhere. The material feels really nice against my skin. It is definitely more stylish than the other options! Thank you!" 

“I love the fabric, light and soft.”

“I like the magnet closure, easy to put on after surgery.”

“I like the thickness of the band, no wires or uncomfortable elastic”. 

“I wish I had a contemporary bra like this 20 years ago when I had to wear one!”

One patient thought it was too hard to get into with the X design when they are first post-op since she had to stretch her arms behind her back too far.
There is not enough coverage medially (center) of the breast for larger women (although they only had small size bras to test XS – M at her Docs).

Physician:

"Congratulations on your bra unveiling last night.  It was a beautiful event and the bras are terrific.  I spent some time speaking with the rep from the fabric company.  Very interesting technology.  I think from a doctor’s standpoint it has a lot of potential: 

#1 Provides adequate compression (this is key). #2 No stitching reduces chaffing and increases comfort. #3Elegant fabric makes it easy to wear under normal clothing, without being visible (most bras are so bulky). #4If I understand the design, the drain tube comes through the bra.  This is an advantage-no pressure from the bra band on the drain tube. #5Holder for drain tube. #6 Unique fabric may increase blood flow and aid in healing-this could be revolutionary. #7Full size range for all patient body types.  #8 Developed by women for women!

Congratulations again."Tracy M. Pfeifer, MD, MS, Pfeifer Plastic Surgery

Don't let CANCER get the BREAST of You! I haven't! 

This past Spring, I recently auditioned for My 2nd Act at SURVIVORville.  My 2nd Act story will be published on their website and in their online magazine. SURVIVORville was held on June 6th at the Gaylord OpryLand in Nashville, Tennessee!  They said my story was "an inspiration to all cancer survivors." This made my day! Don't let cancer get the BREAST of you! BLISS!

CRISSCROSS: Intimate Apparel.  Feel Confident, Look Beautiful! Jean introduces a full line of post-surgical bras and camisoles.  No matter what type of breast surgery or stage of breast cancer you may have had, there should be a comfortable product for you -- whether you experienced lumpectomy with radiation to single or bilateral mastectomy with reconstructive surgery or augmentation, compression undergarments will be available for women and men alike, providing unique custom fabrics and technology that offers healing, comfort and style throughout the product line. 

Jean strives to deliver stylish, chic and comfortable products designed to provide innovative and clinically proven healing technology for patients of all ages to ease your recovery in style! Jean also integrated a CRISSCROSS™ element in each Jean Criss™ design. 

CRISSCROSS™  is the trademark name for the entire Collection inspired as she documented her journey in BLISS!, a survivor's tale about breast cancer, love, life and the pursuit of happiness.  

Based on her personal experience, Jean would like to dedicate the Collection in memory of her late husband, who passed away in her arms after a tragic auto accident, at the cross roads of their youthful marriage.  

Bras will be named in memory of Survivors: dedicated to family, friends or dear loved ones. The Public can name a bra after a Survivor too by making a contribution to the Collection! The first bra will be named the "Nina" bra - after Annina Vulpetti, Jean's dear Aunt who died tragically of Stage 4 BC.  Nina meant so much to Jean and her family.  The  "Christina" bra will be named after Christina Bloom, a dear friend and business colleague of Jean's who spent many wonderful days traveling and socializing with her during their post-surgical breast recoveries while they penned their books along the way. "We traveled and lived our dreams and always gave back to our favorite charities", Jean proclaims.  

Celebrate life and keep the legacy alive with the CRISSCROSS brand.

Jean will also bring out her fashionista with over 20 proprietary patent designs.  She also will feature fashion wear for patients and medical staff -- over-garments to hide the post-surgical drains and tubes, and medical scrubs and gowns for those who care for you at your bedside.  Basically offering high-comfort during one's medical recovery during their hospital stay, in-home care or for when they return to the workplace. Chic apparel for patients in need and for your caregivers.  Designs currently 'under construction' with various patents pending!

Why? The Facts: A woman has a 1 in 8 chance that she will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime; in New Jersey that chance is 1 in 7.  1% of all breast cancer diagnoses are men, 1 in 1,000 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime.  Every 2 minutes a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer; every 13 minutes, a woman in the United States will die of this disease.  Inspiring celebrity women such as Kris Carr, Sheryl Crow, Christina Applegate, Guiliana Rancic, Cynthia Nixon, Hoda Kotb, Betsey Johnson, Edie Falco, Olivia Newton-John, Diahann Carroll; and famous men such as director George Lucas, Cleveland Brown’s Ernie Green, actor Richard Roundtree, singer Don Mclean, former US Senator Edward Brook, and unfortunately so many more, have experienced breast cancer.

Testimonial -  "These bras look so soft and comfortable and easy to put on. I love all the ways they can be adjusted for a comfortable fit andthe holes for the lovely drains we go home with from the hospital ... Love the easy front closure. You thought of everything!  Wish I had a bra like this when I had my mastectomy. I don’t even remember what I had. I think I wore nothing with loose fitting button-front shirts. These designs are light years ahead of what was offered 15 years ago. Thanks for doing this. You’re an angel."  Libby Levinson, Colleague & Breast Cancer Survivor
